Physics 4 Magnetic Induction Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

Before we can talk about induction we need to understand magnetic flux. You can think of flux as the number of field lines passing through an area. Here is the formula: Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB Magnetic Flux If the field is uniform and the area is flat, we have:

Note that there are 3 parts to this formula: field strength, Area, and angle. We will learn that magnetic induction occurs if any of these change. In fact, the rate of change of flux is the induced voltage: Here is Faraday’s Law of Induction: The negative sign helps to remind us of what induction does – induction always opposes the change in the flux. We call this Lenz’s Law. Next we will look at a few specific examples of a changing magnetic flux: Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB Faraday’s Law of Induction

1) A loop of wire entering a uniform magnetic field. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX v Question: which direction is the induced current in the loop? Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

1) A loop of wire entering a uniform magnetic field. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX v As the loop enters the B-field, the flux increases into the page, so there will be a current induced in the loop to oppose this increasing flux. The direction of the induced current is Counter-Clockwise, because that direction will create an induced B-field through the loop, out of the page (opposing the increase into the page).

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX v You might also notice that there will be a net force on the loop to the right, opposing its motion (try the right hand rule on each side of the loop). Induction opposes the change by trying to push the loop back out of the B-field. I induced B induced Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX 2) A loop of wire rotating in a uniform magnetic field. As shown, the loop is intercepting the maximum flux. As it rotates, the flux will be decreasing, so there will be an induced current to oppose this change. The direction of the current will be clockwise, which creates an induced magnetic field through the loop, into the page.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX 3) A stationary loop of wire in a magnetic field that is increasing in strength. Question: which direction is the induced current in the loop? Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX 3) A stationary loop of wire in a magnetic field that is increasing in strength. The increasing B-field causes the flux to increase, inducing current in the loop. The direction of the current is Counter-Clockwise, creating an induced B-field out of the page through the loop, opposing the change in the flux.

4) A bar magnet approaching a stationary loop of wire. NS Question: which direction is the induced current in the loop, as viewed from the right? Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

4) A bar magnet approaching a stationary loop of wire. NS When viewed from the right, this looks like a circular loop with an increasing (because the magnet is approaching) B-field directed through the loop, to the left. The induced current will oppose this increasing field by creating some flux in the opposite direction (to the right, or out of the page in the view from the right). This means the induced current must be Counter-Clockwise. XXX View from the right Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

5) A rotating loop of wire near a stationary bar magnet. NS Question: which direction is the induced current in the loop, as viewed from the right? Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

5) A rotating loop of wire near a stationary bar magnet. NS As shown, the loop is intercepting maximum flux, so when it rotates, the flux decreases. Induction will create some flux through the loop to the right, to oppose the change. This means the induced current is Clockwise.

6) A loop of wire approaching a straight wire with a steady current. Current = I (steady) Question: which direction is the induced current in the loop? Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

6) A loop of wire approaching a straight wire with a steady current. Current = I (steady) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX In the vicinity of the loop, the wire creates a magnetic field directed into the page. As the loop approaches, the field gets stronger, so the flux is increasing. To oppose this, the induced current must be Counter-Clockwise to create some induced flux out of the page.

7) A stationary loop of wire near a straight wire with decreasing current. Question: which direction is the induced current in the loop? Current = I (decreasing) Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

7) A stationary loop of wire near a straight wire with decreasing current. Current = I (decreasing) XXXXXXX X XXXXXXX In the vicinity of the loop, the wire creates a magnetic field directed into the page. As the current decreases, the field gets weaker, so the flux is decreasing. To oppose this, the induced current must be Clockwise to create some induced flux into the page.

Here’s one where we can calculate the effect of the induction: Suppose there is a uniform B-Field pointing into the page. A circuit is placed in the field so that it intercepts the maximum magnetic flux. One side of the rectangular circuit is free to slide back and forth along the rails.

Let’s first try to figure out what happens qualitatively: R V I initial F mag I induced F induced So the wire initially accelerates to the right, but the faster it moves, the stronger the induction, and the closer it gets to some maximum speed (where the induced force will match up with the initial F mag. We can try to calculate this maximum speed. X BXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB

R V I initial F mag I induced F induced To get the max speed, we will have to use our formula for the induced voltage. As soon as the induced voltage matches up with the battery voltage we will be at equilibrium, and the wire will be moving at maximum speed. x L In this formula, the only thing changing is the horizontal distance which is labeled x in the diagram above. If we replace the Area with L*x and realize that we can ignore the angle (90 degrees), we get a simpler formula, involving the velocity of the wire. Setting this induced voltage equal to the battery voltage, we will get the maximum speed. Another option would be to set F induced = F mag. Should get the same result, after using Ohm’s Law.

Since the flux decreases as the loop is pulled away, the induced current is clockwise – creating an induced B-field into the page, as desired.

Displacement Current Prepared by Vince Zaccone For Campus Learning Assistance Services at UCSB In a region where there is a changing electric flux, we find that there is a magnetic field produced. The field generated is the same as if a current flowed through the region, even though no wires are present there. We have a formula for this displacement current:
