### Induced EMF of a rectangular loop should be zero?

Considering the shape of a rectangular loop in a changing magnetic field: The induced $\epsilon$ would be zero? Since a rectangular loop is a combination of wires in series to create such a shape. ...

### Transmission line model proof?

Why 2 distributed lines is represented with series inductor and resistor along with parallel capacitor and resistor? What is the motivation for that? In circuit theory I Knew the assumptions to ...

### Feynman path integral interpretation of the Aharonov Bohm effect [closed]

I have recently been reading about the interpretation of the Aharonov-Bohm effect via Feynman's path integral (see viXra:1403.0950). I do not know whether I am missing something, but I do not ...

### Will non-ferrous materials like Gold that have been magnetised by a slight electric current become attracted to much more powerful permanent magnets?

If a magnet interacts with Gold it will magnetise it to a very slight degree but if the gold is in turn magnetised by passing a generally weak current through it will the gold more easily attract ...

### Why does a laserbeam bent downwards when shined through a solution of salt?

When you have a aquarium with salt on the bottom and add water to it the salt will solute in water, but most of it will initially probably stay more or less down. Now is you shine a laserbeam through ...

### Appears the world more reddish due to our vitreous body in our eyes?

Our vitreous body in our eye consist mostly of water. The refractive index of water is 1.33. If ligth is refracted the frequency stays the same but the wavelength will get shorter to equal to the ...

### How does a charged body sense the presence of another charged body? [duplicate]

If a charged body B is placed within the electric field of another charged body A,then B senses a repulsive or attractive force exerted by A. But how does this information actually transfer from A to ...

### Motion of Thompson's jumping ring

Thompson's jumping ring experiment is set up as follows: There is a force acting on the ring $F(x)$ where $x$ is the vertical displacement. The force is due to the $90^\circ$ out of phase flux ...

### Why isn't cosmic microwave background radiation on Earth drowned out by thermal noise

The Penzias/Wilson experiment, which detected the CMB, doesn't sound feasible given thermal noise. When Penzias and Wilson reduced their data they found a low, steady, mysterious noise that ...

### Electron traveling through gravitational and magnetic field

When an electron travels through a magnetic field it experiences the Lorentz force. The force acting on the electron causes an acceleration and therefore Cyclotron radiation is emitted. After reading ...

### Magnet gyroscopic force spin

I was wondering whether a magnet exerts any measurable gyroscopic effects. I understand that magnetism is caused by alignment of spins of electrons which have angular momentum. (I realise that that ...

### Simple Explanation of Kondo Effect

Does anyone have a simple explanation of the Kondo Effect? (i.e. a simple physical picture + maybe equations to think of?) My current understanding is this: If we consider an electron scattering ...

### Cavity resonator modelling and simulation of em fields inside the cavity

I want to model a cylindrical cavity resonator and study the different modes of em fields inside it using MATLAB/COMSOL. Please refer me books/articles or other resources so that I can achieve my goal....

### Force on a magnetic dipole due to a magnetic field

Imagine a solenoid which has current $i$ and is producing a magnetic field $B$ which equals $$B=\mu N i$$ Now, imagine we put a small cylindrical magnet at the end of the solenoid. Then because at ...

### Why do planets not radiate EM waves in their orbits?

Despite being overall near-netural, I would expect the individual electrons and proton to radiate long EM waves as we accelerate around the Sun or rotate around our poles. Is the acceleration so small ...

### Magnetic flux density of a solenoidal electromagnet

I am designing an electromagnet which will be used to test magnetic sensors. So I used to formula found at hyperphysics which relates the magnetic field flux density to the number of turns, the ...

### Invariance of Maxwell's Equations under inverting variables - Reference and use

Some months ago, an ArXiv paper mentioned in passing that Maxwell's Equations were invariant under reciprocating the variables, or at least this results in a dual set of Maxwell Equations. (Actually I ...
