Unformatted text preview: Lecture 15 Lecture 15-1 Potential Energy of Dipole • Work must be done to change the o rientation of a dipole (current loop) in the presence of a magnetic field. •Define a potential energy U (with zero at position of max torque) corresponding to this work. ∫ ° ≡ θ τdθ U 90 ⇒ ∫ ° = θ θdθ μB U 90 sin Therefore, [ ] θ θ μB U ° − = 90 cos ⇒ θ μB U cos − = ⇒ U μB =− a a i B x θ a F a F a μ .
