Strength of Magnetic Force
A charged particle moving in a magnetic field experiences a force that is perpendicular to BOTH the particle’s velocity and to the magnetic field itself. Lorentz Force Law: The magnitude of the magnetic force on a moving, charged particle is . F = qvB sin q Dutch physicist (q is the angle between the charge’s velocity and the magnetic field)

F = qvB sin q Sin 0, 180 = 0 If a charge has velocity in the same (or opposite) direction of the magnetic field, it experiences no force! Sin 90 = 1 A charge that has velocity perpendicular to the magnetic field experiences the greatest force!

Question? The three charges below have equal charge and speed, but are traveling in different directions in a uniform magnetic field. Which particle experiences the greatest magnetic force? Same B 3 F = q v B sin q 2 1

The direction of the magnetic force is given by the Right-Hand Rule
positive charge ► Point fingers in v (or current I) direction v B q ► Curl fingers as if rotating vector v (current I) into B. ► Thumb is in the direction of the force. F negative charge ● For negative charge force is in the opposite direction . charge q moving with velocity v in the mag. field B F is perpendicular to the plane of v and B

Magnitude of the magnetic field
We define the magnitude of the magnetic field by measuring the force on a moving charge: v B q The SI unit of magnetic field is the Tesla (T), named after Nikola Tesla, a Croatian physicist. 1 T = 1 N·s/(C·m)

Magnetic Field & Magnetic Force Problems
We do: What is the minimum magnetic field necessary to exert a 5.4 X N force on an electron moving at 2.1 X 107 m/s?

(c) … if the velocity is parallel to a magnetic field? F = qvBsinθ , so (a) when θ = 90°, F = (1.6 X C)(2.5 X 105 m/s)(0.5 T) = 2.0 X N, (b) F = (2.0 X N) sin 30° = 1.0 X N, and (c) F = qvB sin 0° = 0.

Comparison of Electric and Magnetic Forces
Using your notes, and working in small groups (3 or less), compare the electric and magnetic forces in terms of: Magnitude Direction Work done Effect on charged particles The group with the most complete list wins a prize!

Comparison of Electric and Magnetic Forces
The electric force: Felec = Eq The magnetic force: Fmag = qvB sin q is always parallel to the direction of the electric field. acts on a charged particle independent of the particle’s velocity does work when moving charge: The work, W = Fel d cosθ1, is converted into kinetic / thermal energy. The electric field accelerates charged particles. is always perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field acts on a charged particle only when the particle is in motion (F=0 if v=0), and only if v and B do not point in the same or opposite direction (sin 00 = sin = 0). Force is perpendicular to motion so the work done by magnetic force is zero. W = Fmagd cosq1 = 0 (cos 900 = 0). Change in kinetic energy of the charge is 0 In the presence of magnetic field, the moving charged particle is deflected (dotted lines)
