Electricity vs. Magnetism ElectricityMagnetism + and -North and South Electric field, E caused by electric charges, stationary or in motion Magnetic field, B caused by electric charges in motion Like charges repel; unlike charges attract Like poles repel; unlike poles attract Electric charges can be isolated Magnetic poles cannot be isolated
Magnetic Field inside a Solenoid A coil of several closely spaced loops is called a solenoid.
Demonstration Electromagnetism Materials list: D-cell battery, insulated wire, nail, compass Use the compass to determine whether the nail is magnetized. Next, flip the battery so that the direction of the current is reversed. Again bring the compass toward the same part of the nail.
Magnetic force (F magnetic ) A charge moving through a magnetic field experiences a force. F magnetic = qvB q is the magnitude of charge. (C) v is the speed of charge. (m/s) B is the strength of magnetic field. Tesla (T) 1 T is the magnetic field strength in which a charge of 1 C experiences 1 N of force when it moves at the speed of 1 m/s.
direction of magnetic force To determine the direction of the force, use the right-hand rule. Place your fingers in the direction of B with your thumb pointing in the direction of v. The magnetic force on a positive charge is directed out of the palm of your hand.
A charge moving through a magnetic field follows a circular path.
practice An electron moving north at 4.5 x 10 4 m/s enters a 1.0 mT magnetic filed pointed upward. a. what is the magnitude and direction of the force exerted on the electron? b. what would the force be if the particle were a proton? c. what would the force be if the particle were a neutron?
answers a. 7.2 x 10 -18 N west b. 7.2 x 10 -18 N east c. 0.0 N
Practice A proton moves perpendicularly to a magnetic field that has a magnitude of 4.20 x 10 -2 T. What is the speed of the particle if the magnitude of the magnetic force on it is 2.40 x 10 -14 N? 3.57 x 10 6 m/s
Force on a current-carrying conductor perpendicular to a magnetic field is proportional to magnetic field, current and length of conductor. F magnetic = BIl B is the strength of magnetic field. Tesla (T) I is the current. (A) l is the length of the wire (m)
Practice A 4.5 m wire carries a current of 12.5 A from north to south. If the magnetic force on the wire due to a uniform magnetic field is 1.1 x 10 3 N downward, what is the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field? 2.0 x 10 1 T, to the west
