• Magnetic monopoles?

Perhaps there exist magnetic charges, just like electric charges.

Such an entity would be called a magnetic monopole (having + or magnetic charge).

How can you isolate this magnetic charge?

Try cutting a bar magnet in half:

Magnetism

Even an individual electron has a magnetic “dipole”!

• Many searches for magnetic monopoles—the existence of which would explain (within framework of QM) the quantization of electric charge (argument of Dirac)
• No monopoles have ever been found:

Intrinsic “spin” of electrons (more important effect)

• Source of magnetic field
• What is the source of magnetic fields, if not magnetic charge?
• Answer: electric charge in motion!
• e.g., current in wire surrounding cylinder (solenoid) produces very similar field to that of bar magnet.
• Therefore, understanding source of field generated by bar magnet lies in understanding currents at atomic level within bulk matter.

Force and Torque on a Current Loop

• Plane of loop : magnetic moment (cont’d)

The same magnetic dipole moment formulae work for any shape of planar loop.

Any such loop can be filled by a rectangular mesh as in the sketch. Each sub-loop is made to carry the current NI. You will now see that all the interior wires have zero current and are of no consequence. Nevertheless, each sub-loop contributes to μ in proportion to its area.

Force and Torque on a Current Loop

• Potential energy of a magnetic dipole

Work done by the torque when the magnetic

moment is rotated by df :

In analogy to the case of an electric dipole

in Chapter 22, we define a potential energy:

Potential energy of a magnetic

dipole at angle f to a magnetic

field

Current increased

• μ=I • Area increases
• Torque fromBincreases
• Angle of needle increases

Current decreased

• μdecreases
• Torque fromBdecreases
• Angle of needle decreases

Applications

• Galvanometer

We have seen that a magnet can exert a torque on a loop of current – aligns the loop’s “dipole moment” with the field.

• In this picture the loop (and hence the needle) wants to rotate clockwise
• The spring produces a torque in the opposite direction
• The needle will sit at its equilibrium position

Applications

• Motor

Slightly tip the loop

Restoring force from the magnetic

torque

Oscillations

Now turn the current off, just as the loop’s μ is aligned with B

Loop “coasts” around until itsμ is ~antialigned withB

Turn current back on

Magnetic torque gives another kick to the loop

VS I

t

Applications

• Motor (cont’d)
• Even better
• Have the current change directions every half rotation
• Torque acts the entire time
• Two ways to change current in loop:
• Use a fixed voltage, but change the circuit (e.g., break connection every half cycle
•  DC motors
• 2. Keep the current fixed, oscillate the source voltage
• AC motors

Applications

• Definition of ampere

The chosen definition is that for a = L = 1m, The ampere is made to be such that F2 = 2×10−7 N when I1=I2=1 ampere

This choice does two things (1) it makes the ampere (and also the volt) have very convenient magnitudes for every day life and (2) it fixes the size of μ0 = 4π×10−7. Note ε0 = 1/(μ0c2). All the other units follow almost automatically.

Ampere’s Law

• Ampere’s law : A circular path
• Consider any circular path of radius R centered on the wire carrying current I.
• Evaluate the scalar product B·ds around this path.
• Note that B and ds are parallel at all points along the path.
• Also the magnitude of B is constant on this path. So the sum of all the B·ds terms around the circle is

Applications of Ampere’s Law

• Magnetic field by a long cylindrical conductor

A long straight wire of radius R carries a steady current I that is uniformly distributed through the cross-section of the wire. Outside R.

In region where r< Rchoose a circle of radius r centered on the wire as a path of integration. Along this path, B is again constantin magnitude and is always parallel to the path.

• Now Itot≠I.
• However, current is uniform over the cross-section of the wire.
• Fraction of the current I enclosed by the circle of radius r < R equals the ratio of the area of the circle of radius r and the cross section of the wire R2.

Applications of Ampere’s Law

• Magnetic field by a solenoid

When the coils of the solenoid are closely spaced, each turn can be regarded as a circular loop, and the net magnetic field is the vector sum of the magnetic field for each loop. This produces a magnetic field that is approximately constant inside the solenoid, and nearly zero outside the solenoid.

I

Applications of Ampere’s Law

• Magnetic field by a solenoid (cont’d)

The ideal solenoid is approached when the coils are very close together and the length of the solenoid is much greater than its radius. Then we can approximate the magnetic field as constant inside and zero outside the solenoid.

I

Applications of Ampere’s Law

• Magnetic field by a solenoid (cont’d)

Use Ampère’s Law to find B inside an ideal solenoid.

Applications of Ampere’s Law

• Magnetic field by a toroid

A toroid can be considered as a solenoid “bent” into a circle as shown. We can apply Ampère’s law along the circular path inside the toroid.

Exercises

• Problem 1

The wire semicircles shown in Fig. have radii a and b. Calculate the net

magnetic field that the current in the wires produces at point P.

I

Since point P is located at a symmetric position

with respect to the two straight sections where the

current I moves (anti)parallel to the radial direction.

So there is no contributions from these segments.

The contribution from the semicircle of radius a is

a half of that from a complete circle of the same radius:

Similarly the contribution from the semicircle of radius b is:

From principle of superposition, the net magnetic field at point P is:

each carrying current I are laid side-by-side to form an

infinite current sheet. The conductors lie in the xy-plane,

are parallel to the y-axis and carry current in the +y

direction. There are n conductors per unit length measured

along the x-axis. (a) What are the magnitude and direction

of the magnetic a distance a below the current sheets?

• Below sheet, all the magnetic
