### Finite rod aligned with a time varying magnetic field

A finite length rod is aligned parallel with a magnetic field that has a changing magnitude (let's say a sinusoidal change), given the conductivity and permeability of the rod and assume a large ...

### Determine stationary angular velocity of wheel with circuit in magnetic field

I have a wheel (free to spin around the $z-$axis) with four spokes that is connected by sliding contacts to a circuit with $U_0 = 0,72V$. Also, there is a B-Field parallel to the $z-$axis For the ...

### Torque per unit length on infinite rotating charged cylinder

For homework I have the following question, but I am stuck on finding the torque on the cylinder. An infinite cylinder of radius $R$ carries a uniform surface charge $\sigma$. We start rotating the ...

### How do I use the direction of a cross product?

The question is: An electron is projected at a speed of $3.70×10^6\text{ m/s}$ in the $u=\frac{(i+j+k)}{\sqrt3}$ direction into a uniform magnetic field $\vec {B} = 6.43 i + 3.43 j −8.29 k$. ...

### Work done by magnetic field on magnetic dipole

In the above slide, it reads that $W=\int\mu B sin(\theta)d\theta=\mu B cos(\theta)$. But, I thought that $\int\mu B sin(\theta)d\theta=-\mu B cos(\theta)$ by some calculus calculation. Can ...

### Sphere in homogenou magnetic field

I have to find out the magnetic dipole moment of sphere in homogenou magnetic field in the limit $\mu_r\rightarrow+\infty$. I don't know what does the condition $\mu_r\rightarrow+\infty$ mean. Does ...

### Freely Falling Bar in a Magnetic Field

I have a horizontal bar on vertical rails and we can consider that does not exist any friction. Perpendicular to the plane of the rails it exists a magnetic field $B$. I am asked to find the ...

### Magnetic field inside finite solenoid

In my book they don't really derive the equation of the magnetic field inside of a finite solenoid. They just give me equation 1 and image and the end result, equation 2. ...

### Why doesn't Lenz's law predict the behavior of a rod on springs in a magnetic field?

This comes from one of the free response questions from the AP Physics B 2014 exam. 5. (15 points) A conducting rod of mass $m$ and length $L$ hangs at rest from two identical conducting ...
