7 The Earth’s Magnetic Field The spinning iron core of the earth produces a magnetic field.
8 Magnetic FieldsMagnetic field is a vector. It has direction and can be cancelled by another field.
9 Magnetic Field Units The SI unit of magnetic field is the Tesla (T). Dimensional analysis:1 T = 1 N·s/(C·m) = 1 V·s /m2Sometimes we use a unit called a Gauss (G):1 T = 104 GThe earth’s magnetic field is about 0.5 G.
10 Magnetic Force on Moving Charges A charged particle in a static magnetic field will experience a magnetic force only if the particle is moving.If a charge q with velocity v moves in a magnetic field B and v makes an angle q w.r.t. B, then the magnitude of the force on the charge is:
11 Finding the Direction of Magnetic Force The direction of the magnetic force is always perpendicular to both andFmax occurs when is perpendicular toF = 0 when is parallel to
12 Notation To represent the z-axis on an xy plane of paper. • B out of the pageB into the page
13 Right Hand RuleDraw vectors v and B with their tails at the location of the charge q.Point fingers of right hand along velocity vector v.Curl fingers towards Magnetic field vector B.Thumb points in direction of magnetic force F on q, perpendicular to both v and B.
14 Use RHR to find F on moving charged particle for each situation a through f
15 Motion of Charges in B Fields If a charged particle is moving perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field, its trajectory will be a circle because the force F=qvB is always perpendicular to the motion, and therefore centripetal.
16 If path of charge is not perpendicular to field where it enters field at some angle, charge will follow a spiral path (helix) which will spiral around the B-field.The component of velocity that is parallel to the magnetic field is unaffected. Its circlular motion will drift at a constant speed along the magnetic fieldThe perp component of the velocity to B-field causes the particle to executes uniform circular motion perpendicular to the magnetic field.
17 Velocity SelectorA particle is accelerated through a potential difference where it then enters a magnetic and electric field. If the forces are balanced, the particle will move only horizontally between the plates (assuming negligible gravity)
18 Mass SpectrometerThe mass spectrometer utilizes the velocity selector and is an instrument which can measure the masses and relative concentrations of atoms and molecules. The radius of turn yields the mass of the particles.
19 An ion is accelerated through a voltage of 1000V with a charge of 1 An ion is accelerated through a voltage of 1000V with a charge of 1.6x10-19C after which it enters a chamber with a uniform B-field equal to 80mT. The ion follows a semi-circle path and strikes a photographic plate 1.62m from where it entered. Find its mass.
20 Hall EffectIf an electric current flows through a conductor in a magnetic field, the magnetic field exerts a force on the moving charge carriers which tends to push them to one side of the conductor. A buildup of charge at the sides of the conductor will balance this magnetic influence w/ E-field, producing a measurable voltage between the two sides of the conductor. The charge carries will then just pass through in a straight line.
21 Force on a WireSimilar to the force on a moving charge in a B field, we have for a conductor of length L carrying a conventional current of I in a B field. The force experienced by the conductor is:
22 A thin, massless, uniform rod with length 0 A thin, massless, uniform rod with length 0.20m is attached to a frictionless hinge at point ‘P’. A horizontal spring (k = 4.8 N/m) connects the other end of the rod to a vertical wall. A uniform B-field equal to 0.34T is shown and a 6.5A current exists in the rod directed towards the hinge. How much energy is stored in the spring?BI53.1o‘P’FSFM
23 Torque on a current loop A wire loop is freely pivoting in a uniform B-field (+x) as shown. Each side is length ‘a’.Ba
24 Electric MotorAn electric motor converts electrical energy to mechanical energyThe mechanical energy is in the form of rotational kinetic energyWhen area vector of loop is parallel to field there is no torqueAfter the loop moves a ½ turn, the current needs to switch direction to keep it rotating. Inertia will carry it past the edge (top of rotation) and at that moment if the current is switched, the loop keeps going. If the current isn’t switched and it passes the edge, it will rotate the other way and get nowhere
25 Biot Savart LawThis law is seen as the magnetic equivalent of Coulomb's Law (brute force way of doing it vs Gauss) . This finds B at a point P, a distance r from the differential element of current Ids.m0 = 4p 10-7 Tm/A, magnetic permeability of free spaceCurrent makes B-fields
