**Unit 4 Day 3 – Magnetic Dipole Moment & Applications**

Magnetic Torque Magnetic Dipole Moment Potential Energy of a Magnetic Dipole Magnetic Moment of a Hydrogen Atom Applications of magnetic Dipole Moment

2
Magnetic Torque When a loop of wire carrying a current is placed in a uniform magnetic field, the magnetic force will produce a torque on the loop, causing it to rotate This is the principle behind motors, analog voltmeters, and etc.

3
**Magnetic Torque The torque on the dipole is:**

If the coil consists of N loops the current increases by N·I

4
Magnetic Torque If the coil makes an angle θ with the magnetic field, the magnetic force remains the same but the lever arm is reduced from ½b to ½bsinθ Torque is always in the direction of the net force Although this formula was derived for a rectangular coil, it is valid for any shape of flat coil

5
**Magnetic Dipole Moment**

The quantity NIA in the torque formula is called the “magnetic dipole moment” Where the direction of A is in the direction of μ Therefore, in vector form, torque is expressed as:

6
**Magnetic Dipole Potential Energy**

Remember the torque on an electric dipole: The electric potential energy of the electric dipole is: Hence, the magnetic potential energy of a magnetic dipole is:

7
**Magnetic Moment of a Hydrogen Atom**

vt The hydrogen atom consists of a (-) charged electron orbiting a (+) charged proton The Coulombic force of attraction is the equivalent of the centripetal force keeping the electron in orbit FC
