Describe how impedance plane plots such as these

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

Describe how impedance-plane plots such as these could be used for metal sorting. (6) Question 3: Which frequency provides better sensitivity when distinguishing between two samples with high conductivity? (4) Question 4 : Describe and give reasons for the distribution of the different signals on the impedance plane. What effect does the conductivity, lift-off and frequency have on the normalized resistance and inductive reactance of the coil, and why? (6) 4. Produce a new impedance plane plot for a ferrite material, with conductivity = σ 1.0 MS/m and relative magnetic permeability μ r = 1000, that shows the lift-off curves for frequencies 10 kHz, 500 kHz, and 2.0 MHz. Question 5: Describe and give reasons for the difference between the normalized inductive reactance for the ferrite material and for the non-ferromagnetic conductors studied above. (6) 5. Produce a plot that shows change in impedance as the probe moves from air to the test-piece (lift-off = 0.1 mm) versus conductivity for the metals given in Table 1, and for each frequency used. Include all frequency plots on one chart. (You should use the data generated by Teddy to create this plot, but you may need to use another plotting package such as excel to plot the curves.) Question 6: Explain how a chart like this could be used to select the optimum frequency that should be used to distinguish between two materials. (6) 6. To ensure that thickness variations do not affect conductivity measurements, the thickness of test specimens should be at least three times the standard depth of penetration (skin depth, ). δ Question 7: At three standard depths of penetration, what is the strength of the eddy currents relative to those at the surface of the material?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
