# Dependency between force F and length L (Magnetic Field)

• superjose
In summary, the experiment showed a direct relationship between Force F and Length L of the conductor, indicating that the force exerted by the magnetic field is directly proportional to the applied intensity and the length of the conductor.

## Homework Statement

Verify the possible dependency between force F and Length L of the conductor. For this, you will put six different plates, each one with different length from the conductor. You need to verify that by measuring F forces exerted by the magnetic field B, maintaining the same circulant current i. We can do the experiment by giving i a value of 3.0 A.

Graph the results, what conclusions can you obtain from it?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Since this is a theoretical question, I'd say that the force exerted by the magnetic field is directly proportional to the applied intensity and the length of the conductor.

Is this correct? I have my doubts...

I'll leave the graph below. Please note that this was made without very precise instruments (scale of 0.01cm precision). The point of the experiment was to use a magnetic plate in which I would have injected some current (3.0 A in this case) with an external power supply.

I would then measure the force F with a spring scale.From the graph, we can see that as the length of the conductor increases, the force F also increases. This indicates that there is a direct relationship between Force F and Length L of the conductor. Thus, we can conclude that the force exerted by the magnetic field is indeed directly proportional to the applied intensity and the length of the conductor.

## What is the relationship between force and length in a magnetic field?

In a magnetic field, the force (F) acting on an object is directly proportional to the length (L) of the object. This means that as the length increases, the force also increases.

## How does the strength of a magnetic field affect the force on an object?

The strength of a magnetic field has a direct impact on the force exerted on an object. The stronger the magnetic field, the greater the force on the object will be.

## What is the equation for calculating the force in a magnetic field?

The equation for calculating the force (F) in a magnetic field is F = BIL, where B is the strength of the magnetic field, I is the current, and L is the length of the object.

## Can an object experience a force in a magnetic field if it is not moving?

Yes, an object can still experience a force in a magnetic field even if it is not moving. This is because the force is dependent on the strength of the magnetic field and the length of the object, not its motion.

## What factors can affect the dependency between force and length in a magnetic field?

The dependency between force and length in a magnetic field can be affected by the strength of the magnetic field, the current passing through the object, and the orientation of the object in the magnetic field.
