The Electromagnetic Force
If a magnetic field and an electric field are simultaneously
present, their forces obey the superposition principle and

When B, E, and v are mutually

The magnitudes do not have to be
equal, of course. But by adjusting E or
B you can set this up so the net force is
zero.
Set FE = qE equal to FB = qvB:
qE = qvB
Hence with the pictured orientation of fields and velocity, the
particle will travel in a straight line if v = E / B.

•This means that measuring the Hall voltage lets you work out the
drift velocity.
•Moreover, using J=nevd and I=JA (with A the slab’s crosssectional area) gives vd=I/(Ane) and so VH=IBd/Ane . Measuring
the Hall voltage lets you find the density of conduction electrons.

Magnetic Force on a Current
• Force on one charge
F = q vd x B
• Forces on all charges in a length
L of a conductor:
F = n A L q vd x B
• Use I = n q vd A and define a
vector L whose length is L, and has
the same direction as the current I.

Torque & Magnetic Dipole
By analogy with electric dipoles, for which:
  p  E
The expression,
  IA  B
implies the a current loop acts as a magnetic dipole!
Here  IA is the magnetic dipole moment,
and

Potential Energy of a Magnetic Dipole
By further analogy with electric dipoles:
UE  p  E
So for a magnetic dipole (a current loop)

UB   B
The potential energy is due to the fact that the magnetic field
tends to align the current loop perpendicular to the field.
Nonuniform Fields and Curved Conductors

current paths.
• If this is not the case, we must build up using calculus.

To find the force exerted by a
non-uniform magnetic field on a
curved current we divide the
conductor in small sections dL and
on every section dL.
dF = dL I x B
Then, for the total length of
the curved conductor in a
non-uniform magnetic field
F =  dF =  dL I x B
