Homework set 5 1. Some superconductors are characterized by the statement that B = 0 within the superconductor. Let such a material occupy the region of space z < 0. A thin, long, straight wire carrying current I is oriented parallel to this surface, at a distance a from the surface, i.e. it occupies the line z = a , y = 0. B = 0 z y z=a I = I x superconductor Find B everywhere. Hint: An image method is appropriate for this problem Find the force per unit length on the wire. (This calculation shows how a magnet can be suspended above a superconductor, or conversely, by magnetic forces. Find the surface current density on the superconductor.
