4. Problem 28.72. (a) For the magnetic field to have an effect on the moving electrons, we need a non
negligible component of B to be perpendicular to v (the electron velocity). It is most efficient, therefore,
to orient the magnetic field so it is perpen

where i is the current.

Note that C2 and C3 are effectively connected in series, while C1 is effectively connected in parallel with
the C2-C3 combination. Thus,

circuit), the impedance is just equal to the (net) reactance and is equal to

With switch 1 closed but switch 2 open, we have
4. Problem 30.57. (a) Before the fuse blows, the current through the resistor remains zero. We apply
the loop theorem to the battery-fuse-inductor loop: L di/dt = 0. So i = t/L. As the fuse blows at t = t0,
i = i0 = 3.0 A. Thus,
