Homework #10: Due Friday, April 10, by 5:00pm.
That's all for homework #10.
- An aluminum strip 2.0cm wide and 2.0mm thick is placed in a magnetic field with B=3.50Tesla. A current of 4.25A is set up in the strip. The strip is oriented along the x-axis with the current running towards the negative x-axis. The magnetic field points in the negative z direction.
- Draw this situation, labeling the direction of the current and the sides of the aluminum strip that becomes positively and negatively charged.
- What is the magnitude of the Hall field E and Hall voltage V (or "Hall potential"=Φ) that appears across the strip?
- problem 6.73. Note that 1 gauss=10-4T. "gauss" is the cgs (centimeters-grams-seconds) unit for the B field, while Tesla is the mks (meters-kilograms-seconds) unit that we use.
