Reversing magnet polarity to increase/decrease Eddy currents?

I have a cast iron wheel with magnets around the inner radius as a braking mechanism. If I were to add additional magnets around the outer radius, would the amount of Eddy currents increase or crease ...

Magnetic Dipole from 'Current' in LC Circuit

We can work out the 'current' in an LC (series) circuit by creating and solving an ODE: $$I\frac{1}{LC}+\ddot{I}=0$$ This provides us with a sinusoidal resonant response to any initial current. ...

Current Loops VS Permanent Magnets

I'm having a hard time understanding the big connection between permanent magnets and current loops. I am aware that they both have the same magnetic field and therefore it can be said that a current ...

Force/torque on a current loop due to its own magnetic field?

A current loop generates a magnetic field all around itself as shown in picture. My question is: does this magnetic field produce mechanical effects (force or torque) on the loop itself? If so, what ...

Work on current loop placed in a magnetic field: how can there be work done against magnetic forces? [duplicate]

I'm facing some doubts while studying the lecture on magnetic dipole potential energy http://www.feynmanlectures.caltech.edu/II_15.html - "15–1 The forces on a current loop; energy of a dipole". When ...

Magnetic dipole moment of toroid

Question: Must every magnetic configuration have a north and south pole? Answer: Not necessarily. True only if the source of the field has a net non-zero magnetic moment. This is not so for a toroid ...

Magnetic field current loop [duplicate]

Why does a loop of irregular shape carrying current located in a magnetic field change to a circular shape? Will this always happen assuming the wire to be flexible? Even when the force is inwards? ...

Contradicting forces on a circular loop under current in magnetic field?

I have the following general conceptual concern. Think of a thin conducting loop of radius $R$ placed in the $x$-$y$-plane at $z=0$. There is a homogeneous current density $\vec{j}$ running through ...

does the current's direction on a loop with a magnetic field affect the torque?

I have a question in my book The question is very easy, but then my solutions manual gave me unexpected answers I don't get how in d) they conclude the vectors go in the opposite direction, but in b)...
