At the balance point, ¢mmr = i, and the angle between the two reflected beams is 1 x ¢light = #2. Since ¢light = 2¢m,,,‘0, , we can easily obtain the insider‘separ tiOn of the rods. x2 Find the separation,y1, of the conducting rods (remember that the separation is center-t0- center). (4 pts) Figure 13 2. Theory predicts that a long, straight, current-carrying wire exerts a magnetic force on another such parallel wire. The magnitude F of the magnetic force is inversely proportional to the distance between the centers of the wires, (1, and directly proportional to the magnitude of current flowing in each wire. If the wires carry the same magnitude of current, I, then the magnitude of the force is proportional to the square of the current. 2 FocL, Y1 01' :uoL 2 F:{2”y1]1 . (5) Mathematically, the force is attractive if the two wires carry currents in the same direction and repulsive if the wires carry currents in the opposite directions. (7 pts) In the space provided below, accurately sketch the graph of force vs. current and the graph of force vs. (current)2 based on the theoretical relationship above.

The loop is placed in the magnetic field created by the current flowing in the long straight wire such that the wire and the loop lie in the same plane, with the wire parallel to the long sides of the rectangle. The loop is then connected to a battery (connections and battery not shown) so that a current IL flows counterclockwise around the loop.
