Unformatted text preview: r the center of loop 2. The
radius of loop 2 is much larger than that of loop 1. A steady current I circulates in loop 2,
going into the paper on the right side and out of the paper on the left side.
(a) Make a qualitative plot of the flux of magnetic field through loop 1 as function of
x=position of the center of loop 1. Put the center of loop 2 at x=0, and indicate on the xaxis of the graph the positions of the edges of loop 2. Use the convention positive flux =
flux pointing up, negative flux= flux pointing down.
(b) Make a qualitative plot of the current induced in loop 1 as a function of x, again
indicating the position of the edges and center of loop 2. Use the convention: positive
current = current in the same sense as in loop 2, negative current = current in the opposite
sense as in loop 2. Correlate the points where the current is zero with features of the plot
Hint: the magnetic field very close to a curved wire looks very similar to that of a straight
z A proton (mass=1.67x10-27kg, charge=-electron charge) moving in the x direction with
speed v=10,000 m/s enters a region starting at x=0 where there is an electric field and a
uniform magnetic field. The magnetic field points in the +z direction and has magnitude
0.5G (1G=10-4T). The x-component of the E-field is uniform. The proton continues to
move in a straight line in the x direction and comes to a stop at x=1m.
(a) Find the electric field component in the z direction (with its sign) for all x.
(b) Find the electric field component in the y direction (with its sign) at x=0.
(c) Find the electric field component in the x direction (with its sign).
(d) Find the angle that the electric field makes with the x-axis at x=0, in degrees.
