Problem 8

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a noninvasive technique used to stimulate regions of the human brain. A small coil is placed on the scalp, and a brief burst of current in the coil produces a rapidly changing magnetic field inside the brain.

Medical devices implanted inside the body are often powered using transcutaneous energy transfer (TET), a type of wireless charging using a pair of closely spaced coils. An emf is generated around a coil inside the body by varying the current through a nearby coil outside the body, producing a changing magnetic flux.

Problem 63

The magnetic field shown in Figure P20.63 has a uniform magnitude of 25.0 mT directed into the paper. The initial diameter of the kink is 2.00 cm. (a) The wire is quickly pulled taut, and the kink shrinks to a diameter of zero in 50.0 ms. Determine the average voltage induced between endpoints A and B. Include the polarity. (b) Suppose the kink is undisturbed, but the magnetic field increases to 100 $\mathrm{mT}$ in $4.00 \times$ $10^{-3}$ s. Determine the average voltage across terminals $A$ and $B,$ including polarity, during this period.

Problem 64

An aluminum ring of radius 5.00 $\mathrm{cm}$ and resistance $3.00 \times$ $10^{-4} \Omega$ is placed around the top of a long air-core solenoid with 1000 turns per meter and a smaller radius of $3.00 \mathrm{cm},$ as in Figure $\mathrm{P} 20.64 .$ If the current in the solenoid is increasing at a constant rate of $270 . \mathrm{A} / \mathrm{s}$ , what is the induced current in the ring? Assume the magnetic field produced by the solenoid over the area at the end of the solenoid is one-half as strong as the field at the center of the solenoid. Assume also the solenoid produces a negligible field outside its cross-sectional area.

Problem 65

In Figure $\mathrm{P} 20.65$ the rolling axle of length 1.50 $\mathrm{m}$ is pushed along horizontal rails at a constant speed $v=3.00 \mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s}$ . A resistor $R=0.400 \Omega$ is connected to the rails at points $a$ and $b,$ directly opposite each other. (The wheels make good electrical contact with the rails, so the axle, rails, and $R$ form a closed-loop circuit. The only significant resistance in the circuit is $R$ ) A uniform magnetic field $B=0.800 \mathrm{T}$ is directed vertically downward. (a) Find the induced current I in the resistor. (b) What horizontal force $\overrightarrow{\mathbf{F}}$ is required to keep the axle rolling at constant speed? (c) Which end of the resistor, $a$ or $b,$ is at the higher electric potential? (d) After the axle rolls past the resistor, does the current in $R$ reverse direction? Explain your answer.

Problem 66

An $N$ -turn square coil with side $\ell$ and resistance $R$ is pulled to the right at constant speed $v$ in the positive $x$ -direction in the presence of a uniform magnetic field $B$ acting perpendicular to the coil, as shown in Figure $\mathrm{P} 20.66$ . At $t=0$ , the right side of the coil is at the edge of the field. After a time $t$ has elapsed, the entire coil is in the region where $B=0 .$ In terms of the quantities $N, B, \ell, v,$ and $R,$ find symbolic expressions for $(a)$ the magnitude of the induced emf in the loop during the time interval $t,(\mathrm{b})$ the magnitude of the induced current in the coil, (c) the power delivered to the coil, and (d) the force required to remove the coil from the field. (e) What is the direction of the induced current in the loop? (f) What is the direction of the magnetic force on the loop while it is being pulled out of the field?

Problem 67

A conducting rectangular loop of mass $M,$ resistance $R,$ and dimensions $w$ by $\ell$ falls from rest into a magnetic field $\overrightarrow{\mathbf{B}},$ as shown in Figure $\mathrm{P} 20.67$ . During the time interval before the top edge of the loop reaches the field, the loop approaches a terminal speed $v_{\mathrm{T}}$ (a) Show that
$$v_{T}=\frac{M g R}{B^{2} w^{2}}$$
(b) Why is $v_{T}$ proportional to $R ?$
(c) Why is it inversely proportional to $B^{2} ?$
