Correct answer: 1 . 84294 10 5 N m (toler ance 1 %). Explanation: Let : N = 200 , B = 0 . 25 T , r = 0 . 95 cm = 0 . 0095 m , and I = 1 . 3 mA = 0 . 0013 A . = N I A = N I r 2 max = B = N I r 2 B = (200) (0 . 0013 A) (0 . 0095 m) 2 (0 . 25 T) = 1 . 84294 10 5 N m . Question 2, chap 30, sect 1. part 1 of 3 10 points A particle with charge q and mass m is un dergoing circular motion with speed v . At t = 0, the particle is moving along the nega tive x axis in the plane perpendicular to the magnetic field vector B , which points in the positive z direction (up from the plane of the figure). x y z vectorv vector B Find the magnitude of the centripetal ac celeration ( bardbl vectora bardbl a ). 1. a = q B m v 2. a = q v m B 3. a = q m v B 4. a = v B q m 5. a = q v B m 6. a = q v B m correct Explanation: Basic Concepts: Newtons 2nd Law: F = m a . Centripetal acceleration: F c = m v 2 r Force on charge q in magnetic field (no electric field): vector F B = qvectorv vector B . Solution: The trajectory of the particle will be bent into a circle by the magnetic field. From this we understand there has to be a centripetal acceleration a to keep the particle in this circle (just like a string is needed to provide the tension to keep a ball whirling in a circle). Since F = m a and F B = q v B , the particle moves perpendicularly to the mag netic field, so that m a = q v B , a = q v B m . Question 3, chap 30, sect 1. part 2 of 3 10 points Find the period T of oscillation; i.e. , the time it takes for the particle to complete one revolution. 1. T = 2 q B m 2. T = q B m oldhomewk 18 LEE, BENJAMIN Due: Oct 14 2007, 4:00 am 2 3. T = 2 m B q 4. T = 2 m q B correct 5. T = m q B 6. T = m B q Explanation: The centripetal force F c is provided by F B , so m v 2 r = q v B , v r = q B m . the period of oscillation is T = 2 r v , which is intuitive since the particle traverses a distance 2 r in a revolution and, moving at speed v , takes the time T to do so. We know the ratio v r , so T = 2 r v = 2 m q B . Question 4, chap 30, sect 1. part 3 of 3 10 points Find the direction of the instantaneous ac celeration hatwide a at t = 0 if q is negative. 1. hatwide a = k 2. hatwide a = k 3. hatwide a = j 4. hatwide a = i 5. hatwide a = i 6. hatwide a = j correct Explanation: The particle is moving along the negative xaxis in this instant: vectorv = v ( i ) ; since it is moving in a circle, we need to talk about instantaneous direction....
