We wish to find a symbolic expression for the current in the inductor for time $t>0 .$ Let this current be called $I$ and choose it to be downward in the inductor in Figure $\mathrm{P} 32.66$ . Identify $I_{1}$ as the current to the right through $R_{1}$ and $I_{2}$ as the current downward through $R_{2}$ . (a) Use Kirchhoff's junction rule to find a relation among the three currents. (b) Use Kirchhoff's loop rule around the left loop to find another relationship. (c) Use Kirchhoff's loop rule around the outer loop to find a third relationship. (d) Eliminate $I_{\text { and }} I_{2}$ among the three equations to find an equation involving only the current $I$ . (e) Compare the equation in part (d) with Equation 32.6 in the text. Use this comparison to rewrite Equation 32.7 in the text for the situation in this problem and show that
$$
\begin{array}{c}{I(t)=\frac{\varepsilon}{R_{1}}\left[1-e^{-(R / I) t ]}\right.} \\ {\text { where } R^{\prime}=R_{1} R_{2} /\left(R_{1}+R_{2}\right)}\end{array}

Problem 69

Problems 69 through 72 apply ideas from this and earlier chapters to some properties of superconductors, which were introduced in Section 27.5.
Review. A novel method of storing energy has been proposed. A huge underground superconducting coil, 1.00 $\mathrm{km}$ in diameter, would be fabricated. It would carry a maximum current of 50.0 $\mathrm{kA}$ through each winding of a $150-$ turn $\mathrm{Nb}_{3} \mathrm{Sn}$ solenoid. (a) If the inductance of this huge coil were $50.0 \mathrm{H},$ what would be the total energy stored? (b) What would be the compressive force per unit length acting between two adjacent windings 0.250 $\mathrm{m}$ apart?

Problem 70

Problems 69 through 72 apply ideas from this and earlier chapters to some properties of superconductors, which were introduced in Section 27.5.
Review. In an experiment carried out by S. C. Collins between 1955 and 1958 , a current was maintained in a superconducting lead ring for 2.50 yr with no observed loss, even though there was no energy input. If the inductance of the ring were $3.14 \times 10^{-8} \mathrm{H}$ and the sensitivity of the experiment were 1 part in $10^{9},$ what was the maximum resistance of the ring? Suggestion: Treat the ring as an $R L$ circuit carrying decaying current and recall that the approximation $e^{-x} \approx 1-x$ is valid for small $x$ .

Problem 71

Problems 69 through 72 apply ideas from this and earlier chapters to some properties of superconductors, which were introduced in Section 27.5.
Review. The use of superconductors has been proposed for power transmission lines. A single coaxial cable (Fig. P32.71) coakial cable (Fig. P32.71) could carry a power of $1.00 \times 10^{3} \mathrm{MW}$ (the output of a large power a distance of $1.00 \times 10^{3} \mathrm{km}$ without loss. An inner wire of radius $a=$ $2.00 \mathrm{cm},$ made from the superconductor $\mathrm{Nb}_{3} \mathrm{Sn}$ , carries the current $I$ in one direction. A surrounding superconducting cylinder of radius $b=5.00 \mathrm{cm}$ would carry the return current $I .$ In such a system, what is the magnetic field (a) at the surface of the inner conductor and (b) at the inner surface of the outer conductor? (c) How much energy would be stored in the magnetic field in the space between the conductors in a $1.00 \times 10^{3} \mathrm{km}$ superconducting line? (d) What is the pressure exerted on the outer conductor due to the current in the inner conductor?

Problem 72

Problems 69 through 72 apply ideas from this and earlier chapters to some properties of superconductors, which were introduced in Section 27.5.
Review. A fundamental property of a type I superconducting material is perfect diamagnetism, or demonstration of the Meissner effect, illustrated in Figure 30.27 in Section 30.6 and described as follows. If a sample of superconducting material is placed into an externally produced magnetic field or is cooled to become superconducting while it in a magnetic field, electric currents appear on the surface of the sample. The currents have precisely the strength and orientation required to make the total magnetic field be
zero throughout the interior of the sample. This problem will help you understand the magnetic force that can then act on the sample. Compare this problem with Problem 63 in Chapter 26 , pertaining to the force attracting a perfect dielectric into a strong electric field. A vertical solenoid with a length of 120 $\mathrm{cm}$ and a diameter of 2.50 $\mathrm{cm}$ consists of 1400 turns of copper wire carrying a counterclockwise current (when viewed from above) of 2.00 $\mathrm{A}$ as shown in Figure $\mathrm{P} 32.72 \mathrm{a}$ . (a) Find the magnetic field in the vacuum inside the solenoid. (b) Find the
energy density of the magnetic field. Now a superconducting bar 2.20 $\mathrm{cm}$ in diameter is inserted partway into the solenoid. Its upper end is far outside the solenoid, where the magnetic field is negligible. The lower end of the bar is deep inside the solenoid. (c) Explain how you identify the direction required for the current on the curved surface of the bar so that the total magnetic field is zero within the bar. The field created by the supercurrents is sketched in Figure $\mathrm{P} 32.72 \mathrm{b}$ , and the total field is sketched in Figure $\mathrm{P} 32.72 \mathrm{c} .$ (d) The field of the solenoid exerts a force on the current in the superconductor. Explain how you determine the direction of the force on the bar. (e) Noting that the units $J / \mathrm{m}^{3}$ of energy density are the same as the units $\mathrm{N} / \mathrm{m}^{2}$ of pressure, calculate the magnitude of the force by multiplying the energy density of the solenoid field times the area of the bottom end of the superconducting bar.

(b) Evaluate your result from part (a) for $B_{0}=5.00 \times 10^{-5} \mathrm{T}$ and $R=6.00 \times 10^{6} \mathrm{m},$ values appropriate for the Earth's magnetic field.

Problem 74

In earlier times when many households received nondigital television signals from an antenna, the lead-in wires from the antenna were often constructed in the form of two parallel wires (Fig. P32.74). The two wires carry currents of equal magnitude in opposite directions. The center-to-center separation of the wires is w, and a is their radius. Assume w is large enough compared with a that the wires carry the current uniformly distributed over their surfaces and negligible magnetic field exists inside the wires. (a) Why does this configuration of conductors have an inductance? (b) What constitutes the flux loop for this
configuration? (c) Show that the inductance of a length x of this type of lead-in is
$$
L=\frac{\mu_{0} x}{\pi} \ln \left(\frac{w-a}{a}\right)
$$

In Figure $\mathrm{P} 32.76,$ the battery has emf $\mathcal{E}=18.0 \mathrm{V}$ and the other circuit elements have values $L=0.400 \mathrm{H}, R_{1}=$ $2.00 \mathrm{k} \Omega,$ and $R_{2}=6.00 \mathrm{k} \Omega .$ The switch is closed for $t<0,$ and steady-state conditions are established. The switch is then opened at $t=0 .$ (a) Find the emf across $L$ immediately after $t=0 .$ (b) Which end of the coil, $a$ or $b,$ is at the higher potential?

Problem 77

To prevent damage from arcing in an electric motor, a discharge resistor is sometimes placed in parallel with the armature. If the motor is suddenly unplugged while running, this resistor limits the voltage that appears across the armature coils. Consider a $12.0-\mathrm{V}$ DC motor with an armature that has a resistance of 7.50$\Omega$ and an inductance of 450 $\mathrm{mH}$ . Assume the magnitude of the self-induced emf in the armature coils is 10.0 $\mathrm{V}$ when the motor is running at normal speed. (The equivalent circuit for the armature is shown in Fig. P32.77.) Calculate the maximum resistance $R$
that limits the voltage across the armature to 80.0 $\mathrm{V}$ when the motor is unplugged.
