    7. [Serway.20.3.25] Over a region where the vertical component of the Earth's magnetic field is 40.0 µT directed downward, a 10.0-m length of wire is held in an east-west direction and moved horizontally to the north with a speed of 40.0 m/s.

    8. [SF5 20.P.10.] The flexible loop in Figure P20.10 has a radius of 12 cm and is in a magnetic field of strength 0.12 T. The loop is grasped at points A and B and stretched until it closes. If it takes 0.18 s to close the loop, find the magnitude of the average induced emf in it during this time.

    9. [SF5 20.P.17.] Consider the arrangement shown in Figure P20.17. Assume that R = 6.0 and = 1.0 m, and that a uniform 2.5 T magnetic field is directed into the page. At what speed should the bar be moved to produce a current of 0.50 A in the resistor?

    10. [SF5 20.P.18.] Over a region where the vertical component of the Earth's magnetic field is 40.0 µT directed downward, a 100.00 m length of wire is held in an east-west direction and moved horizontally to the north with a speed of 50.0 m/s. Calculate the potential difference between the ends of the wire, and determine which end is positive.
    mV (potential difference)

    11. [SF5 20.P.21.] A bar magnet is held above the center of a wire loop in a horizontal plane, as shown in Figure P20.21. The south end of the magnet is toward the loop. The magnet is dropped.

    12. [SF5 21.P.35.] A step-up transformer is designed to have an output voltage of 2200 V (rms) when the primary is connected across a 110 V (rms) source.

    (b) If a load resistor across the secondary draws a current of 1.5 A, what is the current in the primary, assuming ideal conditions?

    13. [SF5 21.P.37.] A transformer on a pole near a factory steps the voltage down from 3600 V to 120 V. The transformer is to deliver 1700 kW to the factory at 88% efficiency.
    (a) Find the power delivered to the primary.

    14. [SF5 21.P.48.] An AC adapter for a telephone answering unit uses a transformer to reduce the line voltage of 120 V to a voltage of 8.0 V. The rms current delivered to the answering system is 380 milliamps.

    15. A force F is applied to a conducting rod so that the rod slides with constant speed v=4.64 m/s over a frictionless pair of parallel conducting rails that are separated by a distance l= 0.27 m. The rod and railsahve negligible resistance, but the rails are connected by a resistance R= 16.2 ohms. There is a uniform magnetic field B= 0.124 T perpendicular to and directed out of the plane of the paper.

    What is the direction of the induced current in the resistor R.

    I know this is alot, but all I need are just the formulas.. I cant find them in my stupid book or anywhere online!!!

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I don't know what formulas you need; all I see are a bunch of totally unworked homework problems.

    <just read the sticky post> Is this for more theoretical stuff or what? Sorry, I'm just having problems figuring these out =P sorry for the bother.

    You have listed 16 problems all of which can be solved by a little thought and applying a formula from your textbook. If you honestly have no idea how even to start then you need more help that we can give you here. Go immediately to your teacher and throw yourself on his/her mercy!

    Or to put it more nicely!

    We're here to help you solve problems, not to solve problems for you. In nearly every circumstance, the most effective form of help is for you to present your thoughts on a problem and where you get stuck, and we can help you through it so the next time you won't get stuck.

    You mentioned you just need formula; let me demonstrate "good" help vs "bad" help with a sample problem:


    You throw a ball straight up, and it takes 5 seconds before it hits the ground. At what velocity did you throw it?

    Bad help:

    You: "What formula do I use?"
    Us: "Use [itex]\Delta x = v_0 \Delta t + (1/2) a \Delta t^2[/itex]"

    Good help:

    You: "I know that the net displacement of the ball is 0, and the acceleration is [itex]-9.8 m/s^2[/itex], and the problem gives me the change in time... I know there's a formula that lets me solve for initial velocity given these, but I can't find it!"
    Us: "Use [itex]\Delta x = v_0 \Delta t + (1/2) a \Delta t^2[/itex]"

    This should be added to Sticky
