How Does One Understand this Motional Emf by Invoking the Lorentz Force Acting on the Free Charge Carriers of the Conductor? - Physics


How does one understand this motional emf by invoking the Lorentz force acting on the free charge carriers of the conductor? Explain.



The magnetic force `(qvecvxxvecB)`component of the Lorentz force is responsible for motional electromotive force. When a conductor is moved through a magnetic field, the magnetic force tries to push the free electrons through the wire, and this creates the motional EMF.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?

Using the concept of force between two infinitely long parallel current carrying conductors, define one ampere of current.

An electron beam projected along the positive x-axis deflects along the positive y-axis. If this deflection is caused by a magnetic field, what is the direction of the field? Can we conclude that the field is parallel to the z-axis?

An electron is moving along the positive x-axis. You want to apply a magnetic field for a short time so that the electron may reverse its direction and move parallel to the negative x-axis. This can be done by applying the magnetic field along

(b) z-axis
(c) y-axis only
(d) z-axis only

Two parallel, long wires carry currents i1 and i2 with i1 > i2. When the currents are in the same direction, the magnetic field at a point midway between the wires is 10 µT. If the direction of i2 is reversed, the field becomes 30 µT. The ratio i1/i2 is
