Magnetic Forces

Forces in Magnetism The existence of magnetic fields is known because of their affects on moving charges. What is magnetic force (F B )? How does it differ from electric force (F E )? What is known about the forces acting on charged bodies in motion through a magnetic field? Magnitude of the force is proportional to the component of the charge’s velocity that is perpendicular to the magnetic field. Direction of the force is perpendicular to the component of the charge’s velocity perpendicular to the magnetic field(B).

Magnetic Force (Lorentz Force) F B = |q|vB sinθ Because the magnetic force is always perpendicular to the component of the charge’s velocity perpendicular to the magnetic field, it cannot change its speed. Force is maximum when the charge is moving perpendicular to the magnetic field ( = 90). The force is zero if the charge’s velocity is in the same direction as the magnetic field ( = 0). Also, if the speed is not changing, KE will be constant as well.

Example #1 A positively charged particle traveling at 7.5 x 10 5 meters per second enters a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to the lines of force. While in the 4.0 x 10 -2 tesla magnetic field, a net force of 9.6 x 10 -15 newton acts on the particle. What is the magnitude of the charge on the particle?

What is the magnetic field (B)? The magnetic field is a force field just like electric and gravitational fields. It is a vector quantity. Hence, it has both magnitude and direction. Magnetic fields are similar to electric fields in that the field intensity is directly proportional to the force and inversely related to the charge. E = F E /q B = F B /(|q|v) Units for B: Ns/Cm = 1 Tesla

Right Hand Rules Right hand rule is used to determine the relationship between the magnetic field, the velocity of a positively charged particle and the resulting force it experiences.

F 1 F 2 Example 2: Lorentz Force x x v2v2 + + v1v1 F = qv x B = qvBsinθ Since the angle between B and the particles is 90 o in both cases, F 1 = F 2. How does the kinetic energy change once the particle is in the B field? a. Increase b. Decrease c. Stays the Same Since the magnetic force is always perpendicular to the velocity, it cannot do any work and change its KE.

Trajectory of a Charge in a Constant Magnetic Field What path will a charge take when it enters a constant magnetic field with a velocity v as shown below? x x x + v  Since the force is always perpendicular to the v and B, the particle will travel in a circle  Hence, the force is a centripetal force.

Radius of Circular Orbit x x x What is the radius of the circular orbit? Lorentz Force: F = qv x B Centripetal Acc: a c = v 2 /R Newton’s Second Law: F = ma c qvB = mv 2 /R R = mv/qB v + FcFc R

Example #2 A particle with a charge of 5.0 x 10 -6 C traveling at 7.5 x 10 5 meters per second enters a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to the lines of force. The particle then began to move in a circular path 0.30 meters in diameter due to a net force of 1.5 x 10 -10 newtons. What is the mass of the particle?

Earth’s Magnetosphere Magnetic field of Earth’s atmosphere protects us from charged particles streaming from Sun (solar wind)

Aurora Charged particles can enter atmosphere at magnetic poles, causing an aurora

Crossed Fields in the CRT How do we make a charged particle go straight if the magnetic field is going to make it go in circles? Use a velocity selector that incorporates the use of electric and magnetic fields. Applications for a velocity selector: Cathode ray tubes (TV, Computer monitor)

Force on a Current Carrying Wire F B = |q|v x B = qvB sinθ(1) Lets assume that the charge q travels through the wire in time t. F B = (q)vBsinθ When t is factored in, we obtain: F B = (q/t)(vt) Bsinθ (2) Where: q/t = I (current) vt = L (length of wire) Equation (2) therefore reduces to: F B = ILB sinθ

Examples #2 & #3 A wire 0.30 m long carrying a current of 9.0 A is at right angles to a uniform magnetic field. The force on the wire is 0.40 N. What is the strength of the magnetic field? A wire 650 m long is in a 0.46 T magnetic field. A 1.8 N force acts on the wire. What current is in the wire?

Torque on a Current Carrying Coil (Electric Motors/Galv.)  = Fr

Torque on a Current Carrying Coil (cont.) B -F F x I  x F -F Zero Torque w x -F F Max Torque Direction of Rotation Axis of Rotation

Torque on a Current Carrying Coil (cont.) At zero torque, the magnetic field of the loop of current carrying wire is aligned with that of the magnet. At maximum torque, the magnetic field of the loop of current carrying wire is at 90 o. The net force on the loop is the vector sum of all of the forces acting on all of the sides. When a loop with current is placed in a magnetic field, the loop will rotate such that its normal becomes aligned with the externally applied magnetic field.

Torque on a Current Carrying Coil (cont.) What is the contribution of forces from the two shorter sides (w)? F = IwB sin (90 o – ) Note 1:  is the angle that the normal to the wire makes with the direction of the magnetic field. Note 2: Due to symmetry, the forces on the two shorter sides will cancel each other out (Use RHR #1). L w I Axis of rotation X X

Torque on a Current Carrying Coil (cont.) What is the contribution of torque from the two longer sides (L)? F = BIL for each side since L is always perpendicular to B. The magnitude of the torque due to these forces is:  = BIL (½w sin) + BIL (½w sin) = BILw sin(1) Note: Since Lw = the area of the loop (A), (1) reduces to:  = IAB sin For a winding with N turns, this formula can be rewritten:  = NIAB sin

DC Motor DC Electric Motor Armature – Part of the motor that spins that contains windings and an iron core. External Magnetic Field – Electromagnet or permanent magnet that provides an attractive and repulsive force to drive armature. Split Ring Commutator – Brushes and split ring that provide the electrical connection to the armature from the external electrical source.

Key Ideas Lorentz Force: A charge moving perpendicular to a magnetic field will experience a force. Charged particles moving perpendicular to a magnetic field will travel in a circular orbit. The magnetic force does not change the kinetic energy of a moving charged particle – only direction. The magnetic field (B) is a vector quantity with the unit of Tesla Use right hand rules to determine the relationship between the magnetic field, the velocity of a positively charged particle and the resulting force it experiences.
