Physics 3123 (Spring 2011), 1 st Quiz 3/4/11 1. A straight wire that coincides with the x -axis of a cartesian coordinate system carries current I. A conducting, rectangular loop with sides a ( || ˆ x ) and b ( || ˆ y ) moves with velocity vV = V ˆ y away from the wire. The loop has resistance R and it starts its motion at time t = 0 at a distance 3 b from the wire (measured from the center of the loop to the wire). Compute the current I loop induced in the loop as a function of time. (30 points) 2. A hollow, cylindrical conductor (radius R ) whose axis coincides with the x -axis of a cartesian coordinate system carries a surface charge density σ . The conductor is assembled from two pieces that meet in the xy -plane. Compute the force per unit length that the piece of the conductor at

(Hint: take the curl of the third and the fourth one of Maxwells equations.) (15 points) b) ind monochromatic plane waves that solve Maxwells equations. (10 points) c) A wave as you found them in b) hits a spherical black body (radius R ), that is an object that absorbs all radiation that falls onto it. How much energy and momentum does the wave transfer to the black body in a time interval t ? Which direction does the resulting force have? (15 points) 1...
