Question

A circular loop of wire with radius of 1.0 m lies in the xy plane. A uniform 1.0 T external magnetic field is directed along the z axis. The wire is a conductor, and carries current of 1.0 Amperes. What is the tension (or compression) in the wire due to the external field?

Answer #1

The loop may be divided into a large number of small length
elements. When a current I is passed through the loop placed in the
magnetic field such that the plane of the loop is perpendicular to
field, then force on each element is

dF=Idl×B=IdlBsin90o=IdlB

Perpendicular to current element Idl as well as magnetic field

B. Hence, the loop opens into a circle.

Consider an element of length dl of circle of radius r, making an angle alpha at centre.

If T is the tension in the wire, then force toward
centre:

2Tsin2α=IBdl

For small angle α,sin2α=2α

2T⋅2α=IBdl

T=αIBdl=IBr(∴α=rdl)

=IB(2π1)(∴l=2πr)

=1×1×(2×3.14×1)=6.28N

is the distance from the centre of the loop, and k is a
positive constant.

(ii) Calculate the magnetic flux Φm through the loop
as a function of time t. ...

A two-turn circular wire loop of radius 0.737 m lies in a plane
perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field of magnitude 0.591 T. If
the entire wire is reshaped from a twoturn circle to a one-turn
circle in 0.116 s (while remaining in the same plane), what is the
magnitude of the average induced emf E in the wire during this
time? Use Faraday’s law in the form E = − ∆(N Φ) ∆t . Answer in
units of V.

Two long, parallel, current-carrying wires lie in an
xy-plane. The first wire lies on the line y =
0.310 m and carries a current of 25.5 A in the +x
direction. The second wire lies along the x-axis. The
wires exert attractive forces on each other, and the force per unit
