Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A solenoid has 104 turns of wire uniformly wrapped around an air-filled core, which has a diameter of 11 mm and a length of 4 . 2 cm. The permeability of free space is 1 . 25664 × 10 − 6 N / A 2 . Calculate the self-inductance of the solenoid. Correct answer: 3 . 07541 × 10 − 5 H. Explanation: Let : N = 104 , D = 11 mm = 0 . 011 m , ℓ = 4 . 2 cm = 0 . 042 m , and μ = 1 . 25664 × 10 − 6 N / A 2 . The self-inductance of a solenoid is given by L 1 = N Φ I , where Φ is the total flux inside the solenoid and I is the current in the wire wrapped around the solenoid. By Ampere’s Law, the magnetic field in the solenoid is B = μ N I ℓ , where μ = μ is the magnetic permeability of the air core which is the same as free space. The magnetic flux in the solenoid is Φ = B A = B π D 2 4 . Using the above expressions for Φ and B , we obtain for the inductance of the solenoid L 1 = N B A I = μ N 2 π D 2 4 ℓ = (1 . 25664 × 10 − 6 N / A 2 ) (104) 2 × π (0 . 011 m) 2 4 (0 . 042 m) = 3 . 07541 × 10 − 5 H . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points The core is replaced with a soft iron rod that has the same dimensions, but a magnetic per- meability of 800 μ . What is the new inductance? Correct answer: 0 . 0246033 H. Explanation: Let : μ = 800 μ . L 2 = μ N 2 π D 2 4 ℓ = μ μ L 1 = 800(3 . 07541 × 10 − 5 H) = . 0246033 H . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The current in a 98 mH inductor changes with time as I = b t 2- a t . With a = 10 A / s and b = 4 A / s 2 , find the magnitude of the induced emf , |E| , at t = 0 . 4 s. Correct answer: 0 . 6664 V. Explanation: Let : L = 98 mH = 0 . 098 H , b = 4 A / s 2 , a = 10 A / s , and t = 0 . 4 s . From Faraday’s Law, the induced emf E is proportional to the rate of change of the magnetic flux, which in turn is proportional to the rate of change of the current. This is expressed as E = L d I dt = L d dt ( b t 2- a t ) = L (2 b t- a ) benavides (jjb2356) – homework 26 – Turner – (59130) 2 At 0 . 4 s ,the magnitude of the induced...
