Chapter 29 is heavy-duty physics. Theres a lot of material to cover. Please get help if you are having trouble following the lecture or doing the homework! If you really want to understand the material, youll need to study the text in Chapter 29 carefully. These notes alone are not enough for complete understanding! However, do study these notes, because they
contain homework hints which I will skip during lecture.

Reminder: Special Homework #7 is due tomorrow. Pick it up from the back of the room or download from the Physics 24 web site. Hold on to your seats!

Induced emf and Faradays Law


Magnetic Induction We have found that an electric current can give rise to a magnetic field I wonder if a magnetic field can somehow give rise to an electric current

It is observed experimentally that changes in magnetic flux induce an emf in a conductor. B

A changing current in a loop of wire gives rise to a changing magnetic field (predicted by Amperes law) which can induce a current in another nearby loop of wire. In the this case, nothing observable (to your eye) is moving, although, of course microscopically, electrons are in motion. Induced emf is produced by a changing magnetic flux.

Faradays Law

dB = -N dt

You can use Faradays Law to calculate the magnitude of the emf (or whatever the problem wants). Then use Lenzs Law to figure out the direction of the induced current (or the direction of whatever the problem wants). The direction of the induced emf is in the direction of the current that flows in response to the flux change. We usually ask you to calculate the magnitude of the induced emf ( | | ) and separately specify its direction.
Magnetic flux is not a vector. Like electrical current, it is a scalar. Just as we talk about current direction (even though it is not a vector), we often talk about flux direction (even though it is not a vector). Keep this in mind if your recitation instructor talks about the direction of magnetic flux.

Lets look in detail at each of these four ways of using motion to produce an emf. Method 1

None of these are on your starting equation sheet!

Example: the armature of a 60 Hz ac generator rotates in a 0.15 T magnetic field. If the area of the coil is 2x10-2 m2, how many loops must the coil contain if the peak output is to be mx = 170 V? a

Lets look in detail at each of these four ways of using motion to produce an emf. Method 2

Another Kind of Generator: A Slidewire Generator Recall that one of the ways to induce an emf is to change the area of the loop in the magnetic field. Lets see how this works. B v A U-shaped conductor and a moveable conducting rod are placed in a magnetic field, as shown. The rod moves to the right with dA a constant speed v for a time dt. vdt x The rod moves a distance v dt and the area of the loop inside the magnetic field increases by an amount dA = v dt .

The loop is perpendicular to the magnetic field, so the r r magnetic flux through the loop is B= = BA. dA B The emf induced in the conductor can be calculated using Faradays law: dB = -N dt B v d( BA) = 1 dt B dA = dt dA vdt x dx = Bl B and v are vector dt

magnitudes, so they are always +. Wire length is always +. You use Lenzs law to get the direction of the

Direction of current? The induced emf causes current to flow in the loop. Magnetic flux inside the loop increases (more area). System wants to make the flux stay the same, so the current gives rise to a field inside the loop into the plane of the paper (to counteract the extra flux). Clockwise current! B v I dA vdt x

As the bar moves through the magnetic field, it feels r a force r r FM = I l B v B A constant pulling force, equal in F M F P magnitude and opposite in direction, must be applied to keep the bar moving with a r constant r velocity. FP = FM = I l B I

Power and current. If the loop has resistance R, the current is Bl v I = = . R R And the power is r r P = FP v =I l Bv B v I

P = I ( IR) = I 2R (as expected).

Mechanical energy (from the pulling force) has been converted into electrical energy, and the electrical energy is then dissipated by the resistance of the wire.

Lets look in detail at each of these four ways of using motion to produce an emf. Method 3

Example 3 of motional emf: moving conductor in B field. Motional emf is the emf induced in a conductor moving in a magnetic field. If a conductor (purple bar) moves with speed v in a magnetic field, the electrons in the bar experience a force r r r r r FM = qv B= - ev B B v +

The force on the electrons is up, so the top end of the bar acquires a net charge and the bottom end of the bar acquires a net + charge. The charges in the bar are separated.

This is a simplified explanation but it gives you the right feel.

The separated charges in the bar produce an electric field pointing up the bar. The emf across the length of the bar is = El The electric field exerts a downward force on the r r r electrons: = qE= - eE F

Lets look in detail at each of these four ways of using motion to produce an emf. Method 4

Example 4 of motional emf: flux change through conducting loop. (Entire loop is moving.) Ill include some numbers with this example.

Remember, its the flux change that produces the emf. Flux has no direction associated with it. However, the presence of flux is due to the presence of a magnetic field, which does have a direction, and allows us to use Lenzs law to determine the direction of current and emf.

A square coil of side 5 cm contains 100 loops and is positioned perpendicular to a uniform 0.6 T magnetic field. It is quickly and uniformly pulled from the field (moving to B) to a region where the field drops abruptly to zero. It takes 0.10 s to remove the coil, whose resistance is 100 .

B = 0.6 T

r r = B dA = BA .

Final: Bf = 0 .

B = Bf - Bi = 0 - BA = - (0.6 T) (0.05 m)2 = - 1.5x10-3 Wb.

(b) Find the current and emf induced.



Current will begin to flow when the coil starts to exit the magnetic field. Because of the resistance of the coil, the current will eventually stop flowing after the coil has left the magnetic field.

(c) How much energy is dissipated in the coil? Current flows only* during the time flux changes. E = P t = I2R t = (1.5x10-2 A)2 (100 ) (0.1 s) = 2.25x10-3 J (d) Discuss the forces involved in this example. The loop has to be pulled out of the magnetic field, so there is a pulling force, which does work. The pulling force is opposed by a magnetic force on the current flowing in the wire. If the loop is pulled uniformly out of the magnetic field (no acceleration) the pulling and magnetic forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.
*Remember: if there were no resistance in the loop, the current would flow indefinitely. However, the resistance quickly halts the flow of current once the magnetic flux stops changing.

The flux change occurs only when the coil is in the process of leaving the region of magnetic field.

Other useful animations here.
True Fact you didnt know: all electrical motors operate on smoke. Every motor has the correct amount of smoke sealed inside it at the factory. If this smoke ever gets out, the motor is no longer functional. I can even provide the source of this true information.

Lets look at the current direction in this particular freeze-frame. B is down. Coil rotates counterclockwise. Put your fingers along the direction of movement. Stick out your thumb. Rotate your hand until your palm points in the direction of B. Your thumb points in the direction of conventional current.

One more thing

This wire connects to this ring so the current flows this way.

Back emf.
You must be able to use Lenzs law to explain back emf.

back emf (also known as counter emf) (if time permits) A changing magnetic field in wire produces a current. A constant magnetic field does not. We saw how changing the magnetic field experienced by a coil of wire produces ac current. But the electrical current produces a magnetic field, which by Lenzs law, opposes the change in flux which produced the current in the first place.

http://campus.murraystate.edu/tsm/tsm118/Ch7/Ch7_4/Ch7_4.htm

The effect is like that of friction.

The counter emf is like friction that opposes the original change of current. Motors have many coils of wire, and thus generate a large counter emf when they are running. Goodkeeps the motor from running away. Bad robs you of energy.

If your house lights dim when an appliance starts up, thats because the appliance is drawing lots of current and not producing a counter emf. When the appliance reaches operating speed, the counter emf reduces the current flow and the lights undim. Motors have design speeds their engineers expect them to run at. If the motor runs at a lower speed, there is less-than-expected counter emf, and the motor can draw more-than-expected current. If a motor is jammed or overloaded and slows or stops, it can draw enough current to melt the windings and burn out. Or even burn up.

Two brief examples (for you to review outside of lecture): Induced emf on an airplane wing. Blood flow measurement.
Please study these examples on your own!

Example: An airplane travels 1000 km/h in a region where the earths field is 5x10-5 T and is vertical. What is the potential difference induced between the wing tips that are 70 m apart? v

The electrons pile up on the left hand wing of the plane, leaving an excess of + charge on the right hand wing. The equation for at the bottom of slide 10 gives the potential difference. (Youd have to derive this on a test.) = Bl v v = ( 510-5 T ) ( 70 m) ( 280 m/s) = 1V

No danger to passengers! (But I would want my airplane designers to be aware of this.)

Example: Blood contains charged ions, so blood flow can be measured by applying a magnetic field and measuring the induced emf. If a blood vessel is 2 mm in diameter and a 0.08 T magnetic field causes an induced emf of 0.1 mv, what is the flow velocity of the blood? =Bv v = / (B ) If B is applied to the blood vessel, then B is to v. The ions flow along the blood vessel, but the emf is induced across the blood vessel, so is the diameter of the blood vessel. v = (0.1x10-3 V) / ( (0.08 T)(0.2x10-3 m) ) v = 0.63 m/s
