Review The resistance of the wire used to make the solenoid is R = A . Hence, the length of the wire to
be used is:
RA (5.00 )[(2.50 x 10-4 m)2]
L=

= 57.8 m.

1.70 x 10-8 m
The number of times this length will wrap around a 1.00 cm radius cylinder (i.e., the total number
L
57.8 m
of turns of wire that will be on the solenoid) is: N =

= 920 . Since the
2r 2(10-2 m)
magnetic field inside a solenoid is given by B = nI, the number of turns of wire needed per unit
length of solenoid is given by:
B

## n = number of Na+ ions present = (3.00 x 1020/cm3)(100 cm3) = 3 x 1022.

The force on a single ion is:
F = qvBsin= (1.60 x 10-19 C)(0.851 m/s)(0.254 T)sin51.0 = 2.69 x 10-20 N
Thus, assuming all ions move in the same direction through the field, the total force is:
Ftotal = nF = (3 x 1022 ions)(2.69 x 10-20 N) = 806 N

19.10 The work done by a force is W = Fscos where is the angle between the direction of the force and
the direction of the displacement s. But, if F is a magnetic force acting on a charged particle, then
F is always perpendicular to the direction of the velocity and hence the displacement. Therefore,
= 90, and cos = 0. Thus, W = 0.
F
19.11 L = BI. Thus, (0.12 N/m) = B(15 A), and B = 8.0 x 10-3 T.
The direction of B must be out of the page (in +z direction) to have F directed as specified.

(b)

## F = BILsin = (0.60 x 10-4 T)(15 A)(10.0 m)sin90 = 9.0 x 10-3 N.

F is perpendicular to B and, by the right hand rule, is directed at 15 above the horizontal in
the northward direction.
F = BILsin = (0.60 x 10-4 T)(15 A)(10.0 m)sin165 = 2.3 x 10-3 N.
The right hand rule shows F is horizontal and directed due west.

19.16

To find the minimum B field, B must be perpendicular to I, and from the right hand rule, it must
be directed downward to produce a northward horizontal force. The friction force per unit length =
N = (mass per unit length)(g),
f
10-3 kg
or L = 0.200 -2 (9.80 m/s2) = 0.196 N/m.
10 m
Thus, the magnetic force per unit length must be 0.196 N/m to overcome the friction force.
F
0.196 N/m
L = BI = 0.196 N/m, or B = 1.50 A = 0.131 T.

19.17

For the wire to move upward at constant speed, the net force acting on it must be zero. Therefore,
Fmagnetic = mg, or
BILsin = mg.
mg
(0.015 kg)(9.80 m/s2)
At = 90, we have B = IL =
= 0.20 T.
(5.0 A)(0.15 m)
The magnetic force must be directed upward. Therefore, B must be directed out of page.

19.18

In order for the rod to float, the magnetic force must have the same magnitude as the weight of the
mg
rod. Thus:
F = BILsin = mg, or
I=

The minimum value of I occurs

Thus, Imin =

## The area of the circular loop is 0.785 m2, and = NBIAsin.

If = 2 max, then sin = 2 , and = 30. This is the angle between the field and the line
perpendicular to the plane of the loop. The angle between the plane of the loop and the field
will therefore be:
=90 - 30 = 60.

19.20 The area of the ellipse is A = (0.200 m(0.150 m) = 9.42 x 10-2 m2. The torque on the coil is given
by:
= NBIA sin = 8(2.00 x 10-4 T)(6.00 A)(9.42 x 10-2 m2) sin90
= 9.04 x 10-4 Nm. (independent of the shape of the area, A)
19.21

19.22

Note that the angle between the line perpendicular to the plane of the coil and the field is: = 90
- 30 = 60. Therefore, the torque is:
= NBIAsin = 100(0.80 T)(1.2 A)(0.12 m2)sin60.0 = 10 N m.
The right hand rule shows the torque will tend to rotate the coil clockwise as viewed from above.

Each side of the loop will have a length of b = 3 = 3 m. Since the loop is an equilateral triangle,
all angles are 60. The altitude of the triangle is therefore A = bsin60 = 0.577 m and the enclosed

The maximum torque occurs when the plane of the loop is parallel to the magnetic field ( = 90)
and is given by:
max = BIA = (0.500 T)(2.00 A)(0.192 m2) = 0.192 N m.
19.23

## First find the current that flows in the wire:

I= R =

Each side of the square loop formed by the wire is 2.00 m long so the enclosed area is A = (2.00
m)2 = 4.00 m2. Then the maximum torque on the loop is: max = IAB = (73.5 A)(4.00 m2)(0.400
T) = 118 N m.

19.24

## (See sketch) The current through the parallel

resistor is:
I = 3.00 A - 10 mA = 2.99 A.
Use the loop rule on the closed loop, and find
-(0.01 A)(50.0 ) + Rp(2.99 A) = 0.
This yields, Rp = 0.167 .

19.25

## The current through the coil at full scale

50.0 x 10-3 V
deflection is:
ic =
= 10-3 A.
50.0
Hence, the current that must exist in the parallel branch is: Ip = 10 A - ic = 10 A - 10-3 A =
9.999 A.
Therefore, the parallel resistor has a value of:
50.0 x 10-3 V
Rp = 9.999 A
= 5.00 x 10-3 .

19.26

## The voltage drop across the terminals is given by

VAB = iR + ir = i(R + r) where r = 60.0 , and R is the unknown resistance connected in series
with the meter movement.
1 V = (5 x 10-4 A)(R + 60.0 ) gives R = 1940

19.27

The series resistor that must be used has a value found as:
V = 150 V = (Rs + 40 )(2.0 x 10-3 A),
Which yields,

19.28

Rs = 7.5 x104 .

## See sketch. If I = 0.300 A, and a and d are the terminals,

Ip(R1 + R2 + R3) = ic(100 ). In this case, Ip = 0.2999 A

i c= 100

## and ic = 100 x 10-6 A.

R1 + R2 + R3 = 3.33 x 10-2

Thus,

If I = 3.00 A, and a and c are the terminals:
Ip(R1 + R2) = ic(100 + R3).

## Here, Ip = 2.9999 A and ic = 100 x 10-6 A.

Thus, we have R1 + R2 - 3.33 x 10-5R3 = 3.33 x 10-3
Finally, if I = 30.0 A and a and b are the terminals:
IpR1 = ic(100 + R2 + R3).
With Ip = 29.9999 A and ic = 100 x 10-6 A, this reduces to:

Solving (1), (2), and (3) simultaneously, we find:
R1 = 3.33 x 10-4 , R2 = 2.998 x 10-3 , and R3 = 2.997 x 10-2 .

## Which yields, R2 = 2.70 x 105 .

Finally, we see that:

To pass through undeflected, the magnitude of the magnetic force must equal the magnitude of the
electric force, and the two forces must be opposite in direction so they will cancel. Thus, qvB =
E
qE, and v = B

19.31

The magnetic force is the force that causes the centripetal acceleration. Thus,
mv2
qvB = R , which reduces to qBR = mv. Therefore,

For U235: m = 235(1.67 x 10-27 kg) = 3.925 x 10-25 kg.
Thus, r = (3.125 x 1024 m/kg)(3.925 x 10-25 kg) = 1.227 m.
For U238: m = 238(1.67 x 10-27 kg) = 3.975 x 10-25 kg,
and r = (3.125 x 1024 m/kg)(3.975 x 10-25 kg) = 1.242 m.
Therefore: d = 2(r) = 2(1.242 - 1.227) = 3.0 x 10-2 m = 3.0 cm.

At any point on the ring, the magnetic field has a horizontal component, BH = Bsin, and
a vertical component BV = Bcos. Treat these as two separate fields and consider the forces
they exert on the ring. At any point on the ring, the vertical field exerts a horizontal force
directed inward toward the center of the ring. The horizontal forces exerted on diametrically
opposite points in the ring cancel each other, so the resultant horizontal force on the ring is
zero. At any point on the ring, the outward horizontal field, BH, exerts an upward force on
the ring. The total upward force on the ring is: F = BHIL = (Bsin)I(2r), or
F = (0.01 T)sin30(2.0 A)(2)(2 x 10-2 m) = 1.3 x 10-3 N.
To levitate the ring, the upward magnetic force must equal the weight of the ring: BHIL =

Since the magnetic field is pointing from N to S, a magnetic force will exist pushing positive
charges toward point A and negative charges toward point B. This separation of charges
will then set up an electric field directed from A toward B. At equilibrium, the electric force
V
caused by this field must balance the magnetic force, so qvB = qE = q d ,

(0.040 T)(3.0 x 10-3 m)
The magnetic field is directed from N to S. If the charge carriers are negative moving in the
direction of v, the magnetic force is directed toward point B. Negative charges build up at
point B, placing A at a higher potential than B. If the charge carriers are positive moving in
the direction of v, the magnetic force is directed toward A, so positive charges build up at A.
This also places A at a higher potential than B. Therefore the sign of the potential difference
does not depend on whether the ions in the blood are positively or negatively charged.

## ANSWERS TO CONCEPTUAL QUESTIONS

2. If the current is in a direction parallel or antiparallel to the magnetic field, then there is
no force.
4. Straight down toward the surface of the Earth.
6. The magnet causes domain alignment in the iron such that the iron becomes magnetic
and is attracted to the original magnet. Now that the iron is magnetic, it can produce an
identical effect in another piece of iron.
8. The magnet produces domain alignment in the nail such that the nail is attracted to the
magnet. Regardless of which pole is used, the alignment in the nail is such that it is
attracted to the magnet.
10. The shock shakes the domains out of alignment.

## CHAPTER NINETEEN SOLUTIONS

12. At the poles the magnetic field of the Earth points almost straight downward (or
straight upward), in the direction (or opposite to the direction) the charges are moving. As
a result, there is little or no magnetic force exerted on the charged particles at the pole to
deflect them away from the Earth.
14. The loop can be mounted on an axle that can rotate. The current loop will rotate when
placed in an external magnetic field for some arbitrary orientation of the field relative to the
loop. As the current in the loop is increased, the torque on it will increase.
16. Yes, if the magnetic field is directed perpendicular to the plane of the loop, the forces
on opposite sides of the loop will be equal and opposite, but will produce no net torque on
the loop.
18. A charge at rest is completely unaffected by a magnetic field.
20. Such levitation would never occur. At the north pole of the Earth where the field of the
Earth is downward, toward the equivalent of a buried south pole, a coffin would be repelled
if its south pole were directed downward. However, equilibrium would be only transitory
as any slight disturbance would overcome the balance.
