Chapter 14: Magnetism

Brent Royuk


Concordia University

Magnets l.jpg


  • Magnets are caused by moving charges.

    • Permanent Magnets vs. Electromagnets

  • Magnets always have two poles, north and south.

  • Like poles repel, opposites attract.

Magnets3 l.jpg


  • North means north-seeking, so Earth’s north pole is what kind of pole?

  • But any pole attracts metal: Why?

  • Bar magnets are dipoles. Can there be a monopole?

  • History: lodestones and magnetic compasses. Remember Magnesia?

  • Permanent magnets vs. electromagnets: More later

What s wrong with this picture l.jpg

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Earth s magnetic field l.jpg

Earth’s Magnetic Field

  • Probably caused by currents of molten core

  • Drift and reversals

    • Last reversal: 780,000 years ago

Magnetic fields l.jpg

Magnetic Fields

  • The magnetic field B surrounds magnets analogously to the electric field

  • Is there an analog to Coulomb’s Law? No, the B-field is more complicated.

B field lines l.jpg



B-Field Lines

  • Field line mapping: What defines a field line?

  • The direction of the line is always from N to S.

Electromagnetism l.jpg


  • H. C. Oersted, 1820

    • Current-carrying wires exert a force on each other

    • k’ = 1 x 10-7 N/A2

Electromagnets l.jpg


  • The Long, Straight Wire

    • How long is it?

Another Right-Hand Rule:

The Permeability of Free Space:

o = 4 x 10-7 Tm/A


Long straight wire l.jpg

Long Straight Wire

  • What direction is the B-field a) above both wires, b) below both wires, and c) between the wires?

Magnetic force on a moving charge l.jpg

Magnetic Force on a Moving Charge

  • A moving charge moving in a perpendicular direction through a B-field experiences a force perpendicular to its motion

  • Qualitative: FqvB sin 

Electric field units l.jpg

Electric Field Units

  • [B] = [F/qv]

  • 1 N/Am  1 tesla (T)

    • Neutron star: 108

    • Big magnet: 1.5

    • Small bar magnet: .01

    • Earth’s magnetic field: 5 x 10-5

    • Interstellar space: 10-10

    • Magnetically shielded room: 10-13

Magnetic force on a moving charge13 l.jpg

Magnetic Force on a Moving Charge

  • F=qvB sin 

    • Note that the force is maximum when perpendicular, minimum at parallel. Weird.

  • What is the significance of a field line for a moving charge?

  • Example: An electron moves at right angles to a magnetic field of 0.12 T. What is its speed if the force exerted on it is 8.9 x 10-15 N?

  • Have you ever brought a magnet near a CRT screen?

Direction of the magnetic force l.jpg

Direction of the Magnetic Force

The Right Hand Rule

  • Wrap or Point from v to B

  • In/Out conventions

  • Positive vs. Negative

What s wrong with this picture15 l.jpg

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Force on a wire l.jpg

Force on a Wire

  • In the picture below, the wire is deflected downward. Which side of the magnet is a north pole?

  • The monstrosity

Loops solenoids l.jpg

Loops & Solenoids

  • Loops concentrate magnetic effects.

  • What is the direction of the B-field in the vicinity of a current-carrying loop?

  • Solenoids contain multiple loops.

    • Solenoids increase magnetic fields.

    • Solenoids increase the force felt by current-carrying wires.

Application loudspeakers l.jpg

Application: Loudspeakers

  • A modulated current is sent to a voice coil, which experiences a force from a magnet that is transmitted onto a speaker cone.

Application the galvanometer l.jpg

Application: The Galvanometer

  • Torque on a coil of current loops is balanced by a spring.

  • Galvanometers can be configured as voltmeters or ammeters.

Motors l.jpg


  • Problem: How do you run a motor with DC electricity?

    • The commutator

Motors21 l.jpg


Increase the flux with multiple armatures

Faraday s law l.jpg

Faraday’s Law

  • What does this mean?

  • “What good is a baby?”

  • “One day, sir, you may tax it.”

Magnetic flux l.jpg

Magnetic Flux

  • Water pipe analogy

    • Flow through a butterfly net

  •  = BA

  • Can be visualized as the number of field lines passing through a current loop

    • Orientation matters too.

  • Unit: 1 weber (Wb) = 1 T m2

  • Ways flux can change

    • Relative motion, Changing field strength, Changing orientation, Changing area of loop

Changing flux l.jpg

Changing Flux

  • Faraday: 1830, an induced emf is produced by a changing flux in a circuit loop.

  • Demo

Changing field strength l.jpg

Changing Field Strength

  • When is current induced?

  • Demo

Applications l.jpg


  • Dynamic (Induction) Microphone

Applications27 l.jpg


  • Guitar Pickups

Lenz s law l.jpg

Lenz’s Law

  • Lenz’s Law: An induced current always flows in a direction that opposes the change that caused it.

Eddy currents l.jpg

Eddy Currents

  • Magnet in tube

  • Monstrosity

Eddy currents30 l.jpg

Eddy Currents

Generators l.jpg


What’s the difference between a motor and a generator?

Back emf l.jpg

Back EMF

  • There is a “braking effect” caused by a generator that is a voltage that resists the changing current, and it’s called Back EMF.

  • When motors are spun by electricity, they generate a back EMF

    • Maximum current occurs during the startup of an electric motor.

    • “Cold-cranking amps.”

  • Generators have a counter torque.

    • Hand-crank generator

Transformers l.jpg


  • Place two solenoids side-by-side.

  • How can a DC voltage in one produce a voltage in the other?

  • How can an AC voltage in one produce a voltage in the other?

Transformers34 l.jpg


  • Get two coils to share the same changing flux and their voltages will differ by the number of turns in the coils.

  • The transformer relations:

Transformers35 l.jpg


  • Step-Up vs. Step-Down

  • Isolation Transformers

  • Suppose that our neon transformer draws 4 A of current. How much current does it supply to the discharge tube?

    • Neon transformers have an inductor in series with the transformer. Why?

Transformer energy loss l.jpg

Transformer Energy Loss

  • Losses can come from flux leaks, self-induction, resistive heating.

    • Mechanical losses: Transformer hum

  • Eddy currents can be minimized with laminated cores.
