Problem 29.55: Terminal Speed
A conducting rod with length , mass , and resistance moves without friction on metal rails. The rails areconnected with eachother. A uniform magnetic field is directed into the plane of the figure. The rod startsfrom rest and is acted on by a constant force directed to the right. The rails are infinitely long and havenegligible resistance.Part AGraph the speed of the rod as a function of time.ANSWER:
All attempts used; correct answer displayed 
Part BFind an expression for the terminal speed (the speed when the acceleration of the rod is zero).
Express your answer in terms of the given quantities.
Problem 29.51
As a new electrical engineer for the local power company, you are assigned the project of designing agenerator of sinusoidal ac voltage with a maximum voltage of 120 . Besides plenty of wire, you have twostrong magnets that can produce a constant uniform magnetic field of 1.6 over a square area with a lengthof 10.4 on a side when the magnets are separated by a distance of 11.3 . The basic design shouldconsist of a square coil turning in the uniform magnetic field. To have an acceptable coil resistance, the coilcan have at most 400 loops.

Part AWhat is the minimum rotation rate of the coil so it will produce the required voltage?
Express your answer using two significant figures.
All attempts used; correct answer displayed 
Problem 25.58
A plastic tube 25.0 long and 4.00 in diameter is dipped into a silver solution, depositing a layer of silver0.100 thick uniformly over the outer surface of the tube.Part AIf this coated tube is then connected across a 12.0- battery, what will be the current?ANSWER:=
Test Your Understanding 25.1: Electric Current and Current Density
Two wires both carry the same current . The moving charged particles in both wires are electrons, but theconcentration of moving electrons in wire #1 is double the concentration of moving electrons in wire #2.Part AUnder what circumstances will the drift speed of electrons be the same in both wires?ANSWER:
if the diameter of wire #2 is the diameter of wire #1if the diameter of wire #2 is the diameter of wire #1if the diameter of wire #2 is the diameter of wire #1if the diameter of wire #2 is times the diameter of wire #1if the diameter of wire #2 is times the diameter of wire #1if the diameter of wire #2 is times the diameter of wire #1
The current density is related to the current and the cross-sectional area of the wire by therelationship

The current density is also related to the concentration , charge , and drift speed of themoving particles by the relationshipCombining these relationships, we findThe values of , , and are the same for both wires. Since is twice as great in wire #1 as in wire#2, it must be that is twice as great in wire #2 as in wire #1. The cross-sectional area isproportional to the square of the diameter, so the diameter of wire #2 must be times the diameterof wire #1. 
Test Your Understanding 25.4: Electromotive Force and Circuits
A simple circuit consists of a resistor connected to a battery. The battery has emf , internal resistance ,and terminal voltage , and the resistor has resistance .Part A
Rank the following circuits in order of current, from highest to lowest values.
All attempts used; correct answer displayed 
The sum of potential changes around each circuit is zero. This statement can be written as(1)The quantity is the terminal voltage across the battery of emf :(2)Combining (1) and (2), we have(3)We can solve each of (1), (2), and (3) for , giving us three different expressions for the current in thecircuit:(4)(5)
