Test 2
Due: 11:59pm on Sunday, February 27, 2011
Note:You will receive no credit for late submissions.

Problem 28.62
A pair of long, rigid metal rods, each of length , lie parallel to each other on a perfectly smooth table. Theirends are connected by identical, very light conducting springs of force constant each(the figure ) andnegligible unstretched length. If a current runsthrough this circuit, the springs will stretch.Part AAt what separation will the rods remain at rest? Assume that is large enough so that the separation ofthe rods will be much less than .
Express your answer in terms of the variables , , , and appropriate constants (, and ).
Correct

Test Your Understanding 28.2: Magnetic Field of a Current Element

The strength
of the magnetic field due to an infinitesimal current element of length carryingcurrent isHere is the distance from the current element to the point at which the field is measured, and isthe angle between the direction of the current element and the direction of the vector from theelement to . In this situation points in the negative -direction, so ., , : Here and . The vectors and areperpendicular, so , sin , and we get, , : Here and . The vectors and areperpendicular, so , sin , and again we get, , : Here and . The vectors and are opposite toeach other, so , sin , and

Exercise 28.22
Two long, parallel transmission lines, apart, carry 23.0- and 77.0- currents.Part AFind all locations where the net magnetic field of the two wires is zero if these currents are in the samedirection.
Assume that the positive axis is directed from the 77.0- wire to the 23.0- wire perpendicular to the wires, with the origin on the 77.0- wire.

32.3
Correct
Part BFind all locations where the net magnetic field of the two wires is zero if these currents are in the oppositedirection.
Assume that the positive axis is directed from the 77.0- wire to the 23.0 wire perpendicular to the wires, with the origin on the 77.0- wire.
Correct

Problem 28.55
Two identical circular, wire loops 36.0 in diameter each carry a current of 1.20 in the same direction.These loops are parallel to each other and are 26.0 apart. Line is normal to the plane of the loops andpasses through their centers. A proton is fired at 2050 perpendicular to line
ab
from a point midwaybetween the centers of the loops.Part AFind the magnitude of the magnetic force these loops exert on the proton just after it is fired.ANSWER:
1.47×10
Correct

(produced by an arrangement of magnets not shown inthe figure). To keep the wire from sliding down theincline, a voltage source is attached to the ends of thewire. When just the right amount of current flowsthrough the wire, the wire remains at rest.Part ADetermine the magnitude of the current in the wire that will cause the wire to remain at rest.
Express your answer in terms of the variables , , , , and appropriate constants.
Correct
Part BDetermine the direction of the current in the wire that will cause the wire to remain at rest.ANSWER:
The current in the wire must be directed from left to right.The current in the wire must be directed from right to left.
Correct
Part CIn addition viewing the wire from its left-hand end, show in a free-body diagram all the forces that act on thewire.
Draw the force vectors with their tails at the dot. The orientation of your vectors will be graded. Theexact length of your vectors will not be graded but the relative length of one to the other will begraded.
