If you need a constant not given here or do not understand a
problem, please ask me about it. No notes, books, etc. may be
used during this exam.

1. (10 points)
Quote Gauss's, Ampere's, and Faraday's laws, and explain
how you can use the similarities among them to help remember the
forms. Which law plays for the calculation of magnetic fields a role
equivalent to that played by Gauss's Law for the calculation of
electric fields. (You needn't know which name goes with which law).
2. [From homework] A rectangular loop of wire of width d and
length l has a resistance R and lies in a plane which also contains
a very long straight wire parallel to the length (l) of the loop and a
distance s away. If the current in the wire decreases from
I to zero in a time t , what is the current induced in the rectangular
2
loop? Assume no initial current in the loop. Prove that the magnetic
field due to the wire is given by mu I (t) / (2 pi x), x being
0 wire
the magnitude of the distance of the observation point from the wire.
3. What is the force exerted on the wire in the problem above if
the rectangular loop carries a current I and the wire carries a
1
constant current I ? [You can solve this problem using only magnetic
2
fields known from problem 2].
4. (a) What is the effective impedance
-------V cos(omega t)----
of the circuit to the right? Give Z in the | 0 |

(b) What is the absolute magnitude | ____L____ |
|___/ \___________|
of the impedance? \____C____/
(c) What would be the resonant
frequency of this circuit (i. e. for what
value of omega is I lowest)?
(d) How is the circuit oversimplified?
