-Magnetic Flux -Gauss’s Law for Magnetism -“Ampere-Maxwell” Law AP Physics C Mrs. Coyle
Magnetic Flux θ
Magnetic Flux, The number of magnetic (flux) field lines which pass through a given cross-sectional area A Units: webers B Tesla A area m 2 angle formed between B and the normal to the loop (area vector A) The area vector A is perpendicular to the surface A and has a magnitude equal to the area A.
When B is perpendicular to the loop? = BA Why?
Which has the largest magnetic flux? Answer: A
When B is along the plane of the loop? Hint: is the angle formed between B and the normal to the loop.
Gauss’ Law in Magnetism Magnetic fields do not begin or end at any point –The number of lines entering a surface equals the number of lines leaving the surface Gauss’ law in magnetism says:
Ampere’s Law – General Form Also known as the Ampere-Maxwell law Where is the electric flux. The second term I d is called displacement current and is caused by electric fields that vary with time as in a capacitor.
Example: Capacitor Consider surfaces S 1 and S 2. The current through S 1 is I. There is no conducting current through S 2 The electric flux through S 2 is EA –A is the area of the capacitor plates –E is the electric field between the plates If q is the charge on the plate at any time, E = EA = q/ o
Example: Capacitor cont’d The displacement current is The displacement current is the same as the conduction current through S 1 The displacement current on S 2 is the source of the magnetic field on the surface boundary
Magnetic fields are produced both by conduction currents and by time-varying electric fields
Classification of Magnetic Substances Paramagnetic and ferromagnetic materials are made of atoms that have permanent magnetic moments Diamagnetic materials are those made of atoms that do not have permanent magnetic moments
Classifying Materials by Permeability Materials can be classified by how their permeability compares with the permeability of free space ( o ) Paramagnetic: m > o Diamagnetic: m < o
Examples of Ferromagnetic Materials –iron –cobalt –nickel –gadolinium –dysprosium
Domains The domain is an area in a material within which all magnetic moments are aligned
Domains, Unmagnetized Material The magnetic moments in the domains are randomly aligned The net magnetic moment is zero
Domains, External Field Applied
Meissner Effect Certain types of superconductors also exhibit perfect diamagnetism –This is called the Meissner effect If a permanent magnet is brought near a superconductor, the two objects repel each other
Earth’s Magnetic Field Like a bar magnet The Earth’s south magnetic pole is located near the north geographic pole The Earth’s north magnetic pole is located near the south geographic pole Magnetic Declination
Dip Angle of Earth’s Magnetic Field If a compass is free to rotate vertically as well as horizontally, it points to the Earth’s surface The angle between the horizontal and the direction of the magnetic field is called the dip angle –The farther north the device is moved, the farther from horizontal the compass needle would be The compass needle would be horizontal at the equator and the dip angle would be 0° The compass needle would point straight down at the south magnetic pole and the dip angle would be 90°
Reversals of the Earth’s Magnetic Field The direction of the Earth’s magnetic field reverses every few million years –Evidence of these reversals are found in basalts resulting from volcanic activity –The origin of the reversals is not understood
