1 Physics 9 Fall 2009 Homework 10  s 1. Chapter 35  Exercise 14 The magnetic field of an electromagnetic wave in a vacuum is B z = (3.00 µt ) sin (( ) x ωt ), where x is in m and t is in s. What are the wave s (a) wavelength, (b) frequency, and (c) electric field amplitude? The general expression for the general wave is B (x, t) = B 0 sin (kx ωt), where B 0 is the amplitude, k = 2π/λ is the wave number, and ω = 2πf is the angular frequency. So, (a) The wavelength λ = 2π = 2π = 2π 10 7 = m. k 10 7 (b) The wave is moving at the speed of light, c, and in general the speed of a wave is v = λf. So, λf = c, or f = c. So, f = c = = Hz. λ λ 2π 10 7 (c) For any electromagnetic wave, E = cb, and so the amplitude E 0 = cb 0. Thus, E 0 = cb 0 = = 900 V/m. 1
2 2. Chapter 35  Exercise 15 The electric field of an electromagnetic wave in a vacuum is E y = (20.0V/m) cos (( ) x ωt ), where x is in m and t is in s. What are the wave s (a) wavelength, (b) frequency, and (c) magnetic field amplitude? Again, the general expression for the general wave is E (x, t) = E 0 sin (kx ωt), where E 0 is the amplitude, k = 2π/λ is the wave number, and ω = 2πf is the angular frequency. So, everything is defined as before. (a) The wavelength λ = 2π = 2π = m. k (b) The wave is moving at the speed of light, c, and in general the speed of a wave is v = λf. So, λf = c, or f = c. So, f = c = = Hz. λ λ (c) For any electromagnetic wave, E = cb, and so the amplitude B 0 = E 0 /c. Thus, B 0 = E 0 c = 20 = T
3 3. Chapter 35  Problem 30. What electric field strength and direction will allow the electron in the figure to pass through this region of space without being deflected? The magnetic force points down by the righthandrule (noting that the electron carries a negative charge). So, the applied electric field has to cancel this force, and so E has to point downward, pulling the electron up. The force balances when F E = F M, or qe = qvb, which gives E = vb. Plugging in the numbers gives E = ( ) (0.010) = V/m, pointing down. 3
4 4. Chapter 35  Problem 35. The magnetic field inside a 4.0 cmdiameter superconducting solenoid varies sinusoidally between 8.0 T and 12.0 T at a frequency of 10 Hz. (a) What is the maximum electric field strength at a point 1.5 cm from the solenoid axis? (b) What is the value of B the instant E reaches its maximum value? Faraday s law says that E d s = d dt B d A. For the solenoid, the electric field circles around inside the solenoid, so at a distance r < R, E d s = E (2πr) = d (B dt (πr2 r )), and so E = 2Ḃ. So, we just need B (t). The field varies sinusoidally from 8 to 12 T, so the correct expression is where B C is a constant magnetic field. B (t) = B C + B 0 sin (2πft) = sin (20πt), r (a) So, E = 2Ḃ, and taking the derivative gives Ḃ = 40π cos (20πt), and so E = 20πr cos (20πt) V/m, which has it s maximum value when 20πt = π, 3π,. In this case the cosine term is 1, and so E max = 20πr V/m. So, at r = 1.5 cm, then E max = 20π (0.015) = 0.94 V/m. (b) The electric field reaches a maximum when 20πt = π, 3π, 5π,, for which the sine function is zero. So, when the electric field reaches it s maximum, the B = B C + B 0 sin (π) = B C, or B = 10 T. 4
5 5. Chapter 35  Problem 37. A wire with conductivity σ carries current I. The current is increasing at the rate di/dt. (a) Show that there is a displacement current in the wire equal to (ɛ 0 /σ) (di/dt). (b) Evaluate the displacement current for a copper wire in which the current is increasing at A/s. dφ (a) The displacement current is I disp = ɛ E 0. Now, in general, I = JA, where J dt is the current density. But, we also know from Ohm s law, that J = σe. So, I = JA = (σe) A = σ (EA). But, for this simple case, EA = Φ E is the electric flux. So, we have that I = σφ E. Now, taking the time derivative of this expression gives di = σ dφ E. Comparing dt dt this to the definition for the displacement current we see that I disp = ɛ 0 di σ dt. (b) For copper, σ = Ω 1 m 1, and so I disp = ɛ 0 di σ dt = = A. 5
6 6. Chapter 35  Problem 51. The intensity of sunlight reaching the earth is 1360 W/m 2. Assuming that all the sunlight is absorbed, what is the radiation pressure force on the earth? Give your answer in newtons and as a fraction of the sun s gravitational force on the earth. The total force on the earth is F rad = p rad A, where p rad is the radiation pressure, and A is the crosssectional area of the earth, A = πre 2. Here, R E = 6400 km is the radius of the earth. Now, the radiation pressure is p rad = I, where I is the intensity of the c radiation. So, the total radiation force is F frad = πr2 E I c = π ( ) = N. This seems large, but let s compare it to the gravitational force, F g = GmEM. Here re 2 G = is Newton s gravitational constant, m E = kg is the mass of the earth, M = kg is the solar mass, and r E = m is the orbital radius of the earth. So, F rad F g = πr2 E r2 E I Gcm E M = So, the radiation force is times as large as the gravitational force. Of course, it makes sense that this force should be much weaker since we are in a stable orbit around the sun and aren t being blown away by the radiation pressure. 6
7 7. Chapter 35  Problem 52. A laser beam shines straight up onto a flat, black foil with a mass of 25 µg. What laser power is needed to levitate the foil? The foil will be balanced when the gravitational force is exactly canceled by the radiation pressure force, F g = F R. Now, in terms of the radiation pressure, p R, we have F R = p R A = P A = P, where P is the power of the radiation source, and we recalled Ac c that p R = P/Ac. So, F R = P = mg = F c g, or P = mcg. Thus, P = mcg = ( ) ( ) (9.8) = 73.5 W. 7
8 8. Chapter 35  Problem 54. You ve recently read about a chemical laser that generates a 20 cmdiameter, 25 MW laser beam. One day, after physics class, you start to wonder if you could use the radiation pressure from this laser beam to launch small payloads into orbit. To see if this might be feasible, you do a quick calculation of the acceleration of a 20 cmdiameter, 100 kg, perfectly absorbing block. What speed would such a block have if pushed horizontally 100 m along a frictionless track by such a laser? The radiation pressure creates a force on the block, F R = p R A, where A is the area of the beam. This produces an acceleration, a = F R /m = p RA, and is constant. This m acceleration leads to a final velocity vf 2 = v2 i + 2a x, which says that v f = 2a x = 2pR A x m = 2P x mc, since v i = 0, and we have replaced p R A = P/c, where P is the power of the laser. Plugging in the numbers gives 2P x 2 (25 10 v f = = 6 ) (100) = m/s, mc 100 ( ) which is pretty slow! This isn t the best way to launch payloads! 8
9 9. Chapter 35  Problem 55. An 80 kg astronaut has gone outside his space capsule to do some repair work. Unfortunately, he forgot to lock his safety tether in place, and he has drifted 5.0 m away from the capsule. Fortunately, he has a 1000 W portable laser with fresh batteries that will operate for 1.0 hr. His only chance is to accelerate himself toward the space capsule by firing the laser in the opposite direction. he has a 10 hr supply of oxygen. Can he make it? The laser produces a radiation force, F R = p R A = P/c, where P is the power of the laser. This produces a constant acceleration, a = F R /m = P, but it only lasts for an mc hour (the battery life of the laser). After this time, the astronaut will have picked up a final velocity of v f = at = P t, after having gone a distance x = 1 mc 2 at2 = P 2mc t2. After this he will just coast along at the same constant velocity. Let s see if he can make it. After the first hour, the astronaut is traveling at a speed of v = P t mc and he has travelled a distance x = P 2mc t2 = = (1000) (3600) = m/s, (80) ( ) (3600)2 = m. So, he still has to travel a distance = 4.73 m, and he only has 9 hours left to do it. Can he make it? Coasting along at the speed v, to travel the remaining distance would take t = distance speed = 4.73 = 31, 533 s = 8.76 hours This time is just barely under the remaining 9 hours, so he can just make it! 9
10 10. Chapter 35  Problem 60. Large quantities of dust should have been left behind after the creation of the solar system. Larger dust particles, comperable in size to soot and sand grains, are common. They creat shooting stars when the collide with the earth s atmosphere. But very small dust particles are conspicuously absent. Astronmers believe that the very small dust particles have been blown out of the solar system by the sun. By comparing the forces on dust particles, determine the diameter of the smallest dust particles that can remain in the solar system over long periods of time. Assume that the dust particles are spherical, black, and have a density of 2000 kg/m 3. The sun emits electromagnetic radiation with power W. The sun gravitationally attracts the dust particles, while its radiation pressure pushes them away. In order for the dust to stay, F rad F g. Now, the gravitational force is F g = GmdustM, where m r 2 dust is the mass of the dust particle, which we can write in terms of the density and radius as m dust = 4 3 πρr3, and M is the solar mass. Thus, F g = 4π GM ρr3. 3 r 2 Now, the radiation force is given in terms of the radiation pressure and crosssectional area of the dust particle as F rad = p rad A dust = I c πr2. Here we have reexpressed the force in terms of the intensity of the radiation. The intensity is the power of the sun, P, divided by the area over which the power is spread out. This area is just a sphere with radius equal to the earth s orbital radius, so A = 4πr 2. So, F rad = P 4c In order for the dust to stay in the solar system, F rad F g, so R dust r 2. 4π 3 or, upon solving for R dust, we have GM ρr 3 r 2 P 4c R dust r 2 R dust 3P 16πGM cρ. With numbers, we have R dust 3P 16πGM cρ = 3 ( ) 16π ( ) ( ) ( ) (2000) = m. So, any particles bigger than µm are more strongly attracted to the sun than they are repelled by the radiation pressure. Particles smaller than this will be pushed out of the solar system. So, if the biggest radius is µm, then the biggest diameter is µm. 10
