Problem P. 4263. (May 2010)

P. 4263. The rate of change of the current in a toroidal coil is 10 A/s. The number of turns of the coil is 2000, its cross section is 2 cm2, and the radius of its central circle is 0.5 m. At what acceleration does a proton or an electron starts to move if it is initially at the centre of the toroidal coil?

Hint: The electric field generated by the varying magnetic field of the toroidal coil is similar to the magnetic field generated by a circular current.

Megoldás. \(\displaystyle a=\frac{\mu_{0}}{4\pi}\,\frac{Q}{m}\frac{NA}{4r^2\pi}\frac{\Delta I}{\Delta t}\), melynek segítségével a megadott adatokkal protonra \(\displaystyle 1,\!5\cdot 10^{2}\) \(\displaystyle m/s^2\), elektronra \(\displaystyle 2,\!8\cdot 10^{5}\) \(\displaystyle m/s^2\) gyorsulást kapunk.
