Lecture 14, ACT 1

  • What is the magnitude of the magnetic field at the center of a loop of radius R, carrying current I?

  • To calculate the magnetic field at the center, we must use the Biot-Savart Law:

  • Two nice things about calculating B at the center of the loop:

    • Idxis always perpendicular to r

    • r is a constant (=R)

Magnetic Field of ¥ Straight Wire

  • Calculate field at distance R from wire using Ampere's Law:

´

  • Choose loop to be circle of radius R centered on the wire in a plane ^ to wire.

  • Why?

    • Magnitude of B is constant (fcn of R only)

    • Direction of B is parallel to the path.

  • Current enclosed by path =I

  • Ampere's Law simplifies the calculation thanks to symmetry of the current! ( axial/cylindrical )

What is the magnetic field Bx(b) at point b, just inside the cylinder as shown?

  • Just inside the cylinder, the total current enclosed by the Ampere loop will be I in the +z direction!

  • Therefore, the magnetic field at b will just be minus the magnetic field at a!!

  • The direction of the magnetic field at the current loop is in the -z direction.

  • The forces on the top and bottom segments of the loop DO indeed cancel!!

  • A current I flows in the positive y direction in an infinite wire; a current I also flows in the loop as shown in the diagram.

    • What is Fx, net force on the loop in the x-direction?

Lecture 14, ACT 3

  • You may have remembered from a previous ACT that the net force on a current loop in a constant magnetic field is zero.

  • However, the magnetic field produced by the infinite wire is not a constant field!!

  • The forces on the left and right segments of the loop DO NOT cancel!!

    • The left segment of the loop is in a larger magnetic field.

    • Therefore, Fleft > Fright

    • What is the relation between the magnetic field at R = 6a for the two cases (L=left, R=right)?

  • Ampere’s Law can be used to find the field in both cases.

  • The Amperian loop in each case is a circle of radius R=6a in the plane of the screen.

  • The field in each case has cylindrical symmetry, being everywhere tangent to the circle.

  • Therefore the field at R=6a depends only on the total current enclosed!!

  • In each case, a total current I is enclosed.

    • What is the relation between the magnetic field at R = 6a for the two cases (L=left, R=right)?

  • Once again, the field depends only on how much current is enclosed.

B Field of ¥ Current Sheet

  • Consider an ¥ sheet of current described by n wires/length each carrying current i into the screen as shown. Calculate the B field.

  • What is the direction of the field?

  • A solenoid is defined by a current I flowing through a wire which is wrapped n turns per unit length on a cylinder of radius a and length L.

B Field of a Solenoid

  • A constant magnetic field can (in principle) be produced by an ¥ sheet of current. In practice, however, a constant magnetic field is often produced by a solenoid.

  • Ifa <<L, the B field is to first order contained within the solenoid, in the axial direction, and of constant magnitude. In this limit, we can calculate the field using Ampere's Law.

B Field of a ¥ Solenoid

  • To calculate the B field of the ¥ solenoid using Ampere's Law, we need to justify the claim that the B field is 0 outside the solenoid.

  • To do this, view the ¥ solenoid from the side as 2 ¥ current sheets.

  • The fields are in the same direction in the region between the sheets (inside the solenoid) and cancel outside the sheets (outside the solenoid).

  • Draw square path of side w:

(c) Bz(A) > 0

(b) Bz(A) = 0

(a) Bz(A) < 0

  • The right current loop gives rise to Bz <0 at point A.

  • The left current loop gives rise to Bz >0 at point A.

  • From symmetry, the magnitudes of the fields must be equal.

  • Therefore, B(A) = 0!

(c) Bz(B) > 0

(b) Bz(B) = 0

(a) Bz(B) < 0

  • The signs of the fields from each loop are the same at B as they are at A!

  • However, point B is closer to the right loop, so its field wins!
