```Magnetism
There are two basic ideas in our introductory study of magnetism.
● An electric charge experiences a magnetic force when moving in magnetic field.
● A moving charge produces magnetic field
FIRST THINGS FIRST: THEIR MAJESTY THEMSELVES - MAGNETS
http://www-spof.gsfc.nasa.gov/Education/Imagnet.html
The ancient Greeks, originally those near the city of Magnesia, and also the early
Chinese knew about strange and rare stones (possibly chunks of iron ore struck by
lightning) with the power to attract iron. A steel needle stroked with such a
"lodestone" became "magnetic" as well, and around 1000 the Chinese found that
such a needle, when freely suspended, pointed north-south - compass.
The magnetic compass soon spread to Europe. Columbus used it when he
crossed the Atlantic ocean, noting not only that the needle deviated slightly from
exact north (as indicated by the stars) but also that the deviation changed during the
voyage. Around 1600 William Gilbert, physician to Queen Elizabeth I of England,
proposed an explanation: the Earth itself was a giant magnet, with its magnetic
poles some distance away from its geographic ones (i.e. near the points defining
the axis around which the Earth turns).
Experience: compass needle rotating in the Earth’s magnetic field
Facts: every magnet, regardless of its shape, has two poles, called
north pole and south pole, which exert forces on each other in a
manner analogous to electrical charges. The force between like poles
is repulsive, and the force between opposite poles is attractive.
Magnets are Cool!

Contrary to the electric dipole, which we can pull apart and isolate + and – charge,
we can NEVER pull apart magnetic dipole. When we cut magnet in two we end up
with two smaller dipoles. If we keep on cutting, more magnets will be produced,
EACH with north and south pole.

Earth’s A Magnet!
The poles received their names because of the behavior of a magnet in the
presence of the Earth’s magnetic field. The pole of a magnetic needle that points
to the north of the Earth is called north pole. So, magnetic pole which is in the
geographic north is magnetically south pole.
Don’t freak out:
Earth's magnetic field has flipped many
times over the last billion years.
No Magnetic Charges


Magnetic Fields are created by moving electric charge!
Where is the moving charge?

electrons (more

The Magnetic Field
A magnetic field is said to exist at a point if a compass
needle placed there experiences a force.
We’ll give definition of mag. field intensity B soon.
You can peek – couple of slides later.
The direction of the magnetic field at any location is the direction in
which the north pole of the compass needle points at that location.
Field Lines of Bar Magnet
Magnetic field lines don’t start or stop.
There are no magnetic charges
(monopoles)
But don’t be confused if you see pictures on the right
Magnetic Field Lines

The Magnetic Field – strength and direction
The strength/magnitude of mag. field at any point we define in terms
of the force exerted on a charged particle moving with a velocity v
A charged particle moving in a magnetic field experiences a
(magnetic) force that is perpendicular to the particle’s velocity and,
surprisingly, to the magnetic field itself.
Lorentz Force Law, named after the Dutch physicist of the late 19th and early
20th century Hendrik Antoon Lorentz.
The magnitude of the magnetic force on a moving, charged particle is
F = qvB sin q

velocity and the magnetic field)

Examples of the Lorentz Force
Two important applications of the Lorentz force are
1) the trajectory of a charged particle in a uniform magnetic field and
2) the force on a current-carrying conductor.

Question
Each chamber has a unique magnetic field. A
positively charged particle enters chamber 1
with velocity v1= 75 m/s up, and follows the
dashed trajectory.

v = 75 m/s
q = +25 mC
What is the speed of the particle in chamber 2?
1) v2 < v1
2) v2 = v1
3) v2 > v1
Magnetic force is always perpendicular to velocity, so it changes direction,
not speed of particle.

2) Suppose that we have a piece of wire carrying charges
(again, we'll assume it's positive charges moving around). A
number of charges, Dq, moves a distance L in some duration of
time, Dt. The force acting on these charges is:
 
 Dq 
L
F = D qvB sin q = D q
B sin q = 
L B sin q

Dt
 Dt 
F = ILB sinq
This new form of Lorentz law we call the MACROSCOPIC FORM of Lorentz
Force Law. We don't have to go down to the microscopic level and look at
individual charges and look at their individual speeds. All we have to do is look
at a wire, determine its length and the current it carries and we can tell the
magnetic force acting on that piece of wire!
Direction of the force:
Put your RIGHT hand fingers in the
direction of the conventional current. Curl
them towards the direction of the
magnetic field. Your thumb will point in
the direction of magnetic force.

Force between wires carrying current
Current-carrying wires create magnetic fields
Magnetic fields exert a force on current-carrying wires
Current carrying wires exert forces on each other!
Two current-carrying wires exert magnetic forces on one another
We already saw that if we put a current carrying wire into a magnetic field it will
feel a force....so what will happen when we put two current carrying wires
together!?!?! One will create magnetic field that the other will feel a force from,
and vice versa! Let us see what is going on.
