The force which the magnetic eld exerts
on a conducting ring positioned as shown is
1. There is no force, only a torque.
2. upward.
3. downward.
4. There is neither a force nor a torque.
correct
Explanation:
The magnetic eld within the conducting
ring is constant since the current owing
through the solenoid is constant in time. In
other words, there is no induced current in
the conducting ring. Therefore, no force nor
torque is exerted on the conducting ring.

If the magnitude of the magnetic eld is
decreasing, then the induced current in the
wire loop is
1. counterclockwise around the loop. cor-
rect
2. clockwise around the loop.
3. directed upward out of the paper.
4. directed downward into the paper.
5. zero. (No current is induced.)
Explanation:
Using Lenzs law, the induced current must
be directed to counter the change of the mag-
netic ux through the loop; i.e., the mag-
netic eld generated by the induced current is
pointing upward out of the page. Thus, using
right hand rule, the induced current must be
counterclockwise along the loop.

Circle Into a Square

005
A horizontal circular wire loop of radius 0.5 m
lies in a plane perpendicular to a uniform
magnetic eld pointing from above into the
plane of the loop, has a magnitude of 0.4 T.
If in 0.1 s the wire is reshaped from a circle
into a square, but remains in the same plane,
what is the magnitude of the average induced
emf in the wire during this time?
Explanation:
Let : r = 0.5 m,
b = 0.4 T, and
t = 0.1 s .
The average induced emf E is given by

The current in the loop during the deforma-
tion
1. ows clockwise when viewed from above.
correct
2. ows counter-clockwise when viewed from
above.
3. ows in a direction that cannot be deter-
mined from given information.
4. does not arise.
Explanation:
The deformation causes the ux through
the loop to decrease since the area of the loop
is reduced. By Lenzs law, the induced emf
will cause the current to ow in the loop so
as to induce a magnetic eld that attempts
to resist the change of magnetic ux through
the loop. A clockwise ow of current, when
viewed from above tends to increase the ex-
isting downward magnetic eld through the
loop, thereby resisting the decrease of mag-
netic ux through the loop.

Assume: These are ideal coils.
Given: Two coils are suspended around a
common central axis as shown in the gure
below. One of the coils is connected to a
resistor R with ends labeled a and b. The
other coil is connected to a battery E through
a switch S.

A2: left to right (B =).
After switch S has been open for a long
period of time, the switch is closed.
The direction of the internal induced mag-
netic eld by the larger diameter (secondary)
coil just after the switch is closed is

Explanation:
The smaller helical coil produces a counter-
clockwise current (looking from left-hand end
of the coil).
Using the right-hand rule, when the switch
is closed, the magnetic eld is directed from
Create assignment, 00224, Homework 8, Apr 01 at 6:44 pm 5
right to left (= B).
The induced magnetic eld depends on
whether the ux is increasing or decreasing,
since by Lenzs law the induced current will
produce ux to oppose a change in ux.
When the switch is open, there is no mag-
netic eld.
At the moment the switch is closed, the
magnetic ux through the coils increases.
The induced eld through the coil in the
circuit with a resistor must produce a mag-
netic eld from left to right (B
induced
=) to
resist any change of ux in the coil (Lenzs
law).
The larger helical coil is wound counter-
clockwise (looking from left-hand end of the
coil) from terminal a to terminal b.
Using the right-hand rule, when the
induced magnetic eld is left to right
(B
induced
=), the induced current through
the resistor R ows from a through R to
b (I ).

Explanation:
Question A1 & A2: The helical coil with
the battery attached (when viewed from ei-
ther end) is wound clockwise (as you go into
the coil).
Using the right-hand rule, the magnetic ux
through the coil with the battery attached has
a magnetic eld direction right to left.

The magnetic ux through the coil is from
right to left. When the coils are moving
towards from each other, the magnetic ux
through the coil with the attached resistor
decreases.
The induced current in the coil must pro-
duce an induced magnetic eld from right
to left (= B
induced
) to resist any change of
magnetic ux in the coil (Lenzs Law).
Question C1 & C2: The helical coil with
the resistor attached (when viewed from ei-
ther end) is wound counter-clockwise (as you
go into the coil).
Since the induced eld is right to left
(= B
induced
) the induced current in the coil
ows clockwise when viewing the coil from the
right-hand side.
Therefore the current ows from b
through R to a ( I).
