HOMEWORK for TUESDAY, JULY 12, 2005 For each of the following situations two circuit loops are shown in a uniform external magnetic field . Let the one on the left have a clockwise current F t ext and the one on the right have a counterclockwise current. For each loop show the direction of . Determine in each case the forces acting on each side of F t loop the current and determine if there is a net force or a net torque. If there is a net torque, determine how the loop will rotate, and describe how this is related to the directions of and . FF tt loop ext 1. ŒF t ext Clockwise current on left: is down ; forces on top, right, bottom, Œ Ñ t loop left sides are, respectively, , , , and (all directed outward). There is no ÅÄÆ Ã net force and no net torque. Counterclockwise current on right: is up ; forces on top, right, Ñ t loop bottom, and left sides are, respectively, and (all directed inward). Æß Ãß Åß Ä There is no net force and no net torque. 2. F t ext Clockwise current on left: is down ; forces on top, right, bottom, Œ Ñ t loop left sides are, respectively, and (all directed inward). There is no Ä net force and no net torque.
