physics 8b

A piece of wire with mass per unit length 88 g/m runs horizontally at right angles to a horizontal magnetic field. A 6.5A current in the wire results in its being suspended against gravity.
What is the magnetic field strength?

  1. force= mg= ILB
    mg/IL = B

    m/L is given as .088kg/meter
    g is well known
    I is given.

  2. Use the equation F=IL X B that relates force on a current in a magnetic field.

    Knowing the mass of the wire (.08)kg and the acceleration due to grav (9.8m/s^2) relate the two forces and solve for the variable B.

    Because the cross product of L and B is 1 the relation is pretty simple.

    (9.8)(.08)=5.8B
