Name:_______________________________ Physics 270 Spring 2009 D. Papadopoulos March 2, 2009 1 st Midtern Problem 1 (15) A wire of the shape shown in the figure carries a current I. What is the magnetic field including direction of the semicircle arising from (a) each straight segment of length ? (b) the semicircular segment of length π r? (c) the entire wire? [Explain your answers using the appropriate formulas. Express your results in terms of I, r and .] Key equation 2 ˆ ( ) 4 o I s r B r r   r r r (a) Any part s r of each of the straight segments is parallel to the vector that connects it to the center of the semi-circle. As a result the magnetic field generated at the center of the semicircle by the straight segments is zero.
