 To find the locations of large curl in each of these fields, imagine that the field lines represent the flow lines of a fluid. To aid this thought experiment, imagine holding a tiny paddlewheel at each point in the flow.

If the flow would cause the paddlewheel to rotate, the center of the wheel marks a point of nonzero curl. The direction of the curl is along the axis of the paddlewheel as a vector, curl must have both magnitude and direction. By convention, the positive-curl direction is determined by the right-hand rule: if you curl the fingers of your right hand along the circulation, your thumb points in the direction of positive curl.

Using the paddlewheel test, you can see that points 1, 2, and 3 in Figure 3. The uniform flow around point 6 in Figure 3. If the curl of the field at a point has a large x-component, it means that the field has significant circulation about that point in the y—z plane. The overall direction of the curl represents the axis about which the rotation is greatest, with the sense of the rotation given by the right-hand rule.

Figure 3. Looking now at Ay, you can see that it is positive below the point of interest and negative above, so it is decreasing along the z axis. The situation in Figure 3. The value of the x-component of the curl is therefore small in this case.

You can understand that by looking at the field lines for the electric dipole shown in Figure 3. Imagine moving along a closed path that follows one of the electric field lines diverging from the positive charge, such as the dashed line shown in the figure.

Thus, the field of the electric dipole, like all electrostatic fields, has no curl. Electric fields induced by changing magnetic fields are very different, as you can see in Figure 3.

Wherever a changing magnetic field exists, a circulating electric field is induced. Unlike charge-based electric fields, induced fields have no origination or termination points — they are continuous and circulate back on themselves. You may also encounter two types of problems that can be solved using this equation. Here are two examples of such problems. Make a plot of the emf induced in the loop as it enters, moves through, and exits the region of the magnetic field. If the current in the solenoid increases linearly from 80 to mA in 2 s, what is the maximum current induced in the loop?

How fast must this coil rotate for the induced emf to reach 5V? Find the induced emf in a square loop of wire of side s lying in the plane of the current-carrying wire at a distance d, as shown in the figure. Then in , French physicist Andre-Marie Ampere heard that in Denmark Hans Christian Oersted had deflected a compass needle by passing an electric current nearby, and within one week Ampere had begun quantifying the relationship between electric currents and magnetic fields.

More importantly, it was the presence of this term in the equation now called the Ampere—Maxwell law that allowed Maxwell to discern the electro- magnetic nature of light and to develop a comprehensive theory of electromagnetism. As always, you should begin by reviewing the main idea of the Ampere—Maxwell law: An electric current or a changing electric flux through a surface produces a circulating magnetic field around any path that bounds that surface.

In other words, a magnetic field is produced along a path if any current is enclosed by the path or if the electric flux through any surface bounded by the path changes over time. It is important that you understand that the path may be real or purely imaginary — the magnetic field is produced whether the path exists or not. So if you moved your measuring device in a way that kept the distance to the wire constant, say by circling around the wire as shown in Figure 4.

Now imagine keeping track of the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field as you move around the wire in tiny increments. Making this process continuous by letting the path increment shrink Magnetic field strength depends Field strength only on distance meter and magnetic Weaker field N S from wire compass Stronger field Long straight wire carrying steady current Magnetic field direction I Magnetic field is along circular path strength is constant along this path Figure 4.

The Ampere—Maxwell law 87 l0 The permeability of free space The constant of proportionality between the magnetic circulation on the left side of the Ampere—Maxwell law and the enclosed current and rate of flux change on the right side is l0, the permeability of free space. This form of the Ampere— Maxwell law is general, so long as you consider all currents bound as well as free.

One interesting difference between the effect of dielectrics on electric fields and the effect of magnetic substances on magnetic fields is that the magnetic field is actually stronger than the applied field within many magnetic materials. The reason for this is that these materials become magnetized when exposed to an external magnetic field, and the induced magnetic field is in the same direction as the applied field, as shown in Figure 4.

Diamagnetic materials have lr slightly less than 1. Examples of diamagnetic materials include gold and silver, which have lr of approximately 0. One example of a paramagnetic material is aluminum with lr of 1. The situation is more complex for ferromagnetic materials, for which the permeability depends on the applied magnetic field. Typical max- imum values of permeability range from several hundred for nickel and cobalt to over for reasonably pure iron. As this expression makes clear, adding an iron core to a solenoid may increase the inductance by a factor of or more.

Like electrical permittivity, the magnetic permeability of any medium is a fundamental parameter in the determination of the speed with which an electromagnetic wave propagates through that medium.

This makes it possible to determine the speed of light in a vacuum simply by measuring l0 and e0 using an inductor and a capacitor; an experiment for which, to paraphrase Maxwell, the only use of light is to see the instruments. However, consider for a moment the paths and currents shown in Figure 4. The easiest way to answer that question is to imagine a membrane stretched across the path, as shown in Figure 4.

The enclosed current is then just the net current that penetrates the membrane. By convention, the right-hand rule determines whether a current is counted as positive or negative: if you wrap the fingers of your right hand around the path in the a b c I1 C1 I2 C2 I3 C3 Figure 4. Thus, the enclosed current in Figure 4. Using the membrane approach and right-hand rule, you should be able to see that the enclosed current is zero in both Figure 4.

No net current is enclosed in Figure 4. An important concept for you to understand is that the enclosed current is exactly the same irrespective of the shape of the surface you choose, provided that the path of integration is a boundary edge of that surface. The surfaces shown in Figure 4. Notice that in Figure 4. In Figure 4.

The surface in Figure 4. Selection of alternate surfaces and determining the enclosed current is more than just an intellectual diversion. In that case, a changing magnetic flux through any surface was found to induce a cir- culating electric field along a boundary path for that surface. Purely by symmetry, you might suspect that a changing electric flux through a surface will induce a circulating magnetic field around a boundary of that surface.

For one thing, the magnetic fields induced by changing electric flux are extremely weak and are therefore very difficult to measure, so in the nineteenth century there was no experimental evidence on which to base such a law. In addition, symmetry is not always a reliable predictor between electricity and magnetism; the universe is rife with individual electric charges, but apparently devoid of the magnetic equivalent.

To better understand the relationship between magnetic fields and electric currents, Maxwell worked out an elaborate conceptual model in which magnetic fields were represented by mechanical vortices and electric currents by the motion of small particles pushed along by the whirling vortices.

That source is the changing electric flux in the Ampere—Maxwell law. This last approach is the most common, and is the one explained in this section. Consider the circuit shown in Figure 4. When the switch is closed, a current I flows as the battery charges the capacitor. Yet the Amperian loop is a boundary to both surfaces, and the integral of the magnetic field around that loop must be same no matter which surface you choose.

You should note that this inconsistency occurs only while the capacitor is charging. No current flows before the switch is thrown, and after the capacitor is fully charged the current returns to zero. In both of these circumstances, the enclosed current is zero through any surface you can imagine. With more than a little hindsight, we might phrase our question this way: since no conduction current flows between the capacitor plates, what else might be going on in that region that would serve as the source of a magnetic field?

By shaping your surface carefully, as in Figure 4. Moreover a current-like quantity is exactly what you might expect to be the additional source of the magnetic field around your surface boundary. Fortunately, several interesting and realistic geom- etries possess the requisite symmetry, including long current-carrying wires and parallel-plate capacitors.

Even for complex geometries, you may be able to use the Biot—Savart law to discern the field direction by eliminating some of the components through symmetry considerations. Now ask yourself, what would happen if you reversed the direction of the current flow. Moreover, your friend, still looking in her original direction, would see the current running away from her, but with the magnetic field pointing away from the wire.

This inconsistency is resolved if the magnetic field circles around the wire, having no radial component at all. In the absence of external evidence, this kind of logical reasoning is your best guide to designing useful Amperian loops. Therefore, for problems involving a straight wire, the logical choice for your loop is a circle centered on the wire.

How big should you make your loop? The Ampere—Maxwell law 97 Amperian loop go through that location. In other words, the loop radius should be equal to the distance from the wire at which you intend to find the value of the magnetic field. The following example shows how this works. Example 4. Problem: A long, straight wire of radius r0 carries a steady current I uniformly distributed throughout its cross-sectional area. To find the magnetic field within the wire, you can apply the same logic and use a smaller loop, as shown by Amperian loop 2 in Figure 4.

The Ampere—Maxwell law 99 Example 4. Problem: A battery with potential difference DV charges a circular parallel-plate capacitor of capacitance C and plate radius r0 through a wire with resistance R. Find the rate of change of the electric flux between the plates as a function of time and the magnetic field at a distance r from the center of the plates. Solution: From Equation 4. So you should begin by determining how the charge on a capacitor plate changes with time as the capacitor is charged.

The radius of this loop is r, the distance from the center of the plates at which you are trying to find the magnetic field. Of course, not all of the flux between the plates passes through this loop, so you will have to modify your expression for the flux change accordingly.

The Ampere—Maxwell law 4. The two terms on the right side represent the electric current density and the time rate of change of the electric field. These terms are discussed in detail in the following sections.

For now, make sure you grasp the main idea of the differential form of the Ampere—Maxwell law: A circulating magnetic field is produced by an electric current and by an electric field that changes with time.

All magnetic fields, whether produced by electrical currents or by changing electric fields, circulate back upon themselves and form continuous loops. In addition all fields that circulate back on themselves must include at least one location about which the path integral of the field is nonzero.
