# What is the value of induced magnetic field?

## Homework Statement

Two coencenteric metalic shell has inner radius $r_1$ outer radius $r_2$. We place along axis infinity wire has $\lambda$ charge in per unit length. The inner region of metalic shells inserted with relative permabilitty coefficent $\epsilon$. This system rotates with $\omega$ angular velocity. What is the value of induced magnetic field?

## The Attempt at a Solution

\rho_b=-\nabla.{P}

P=(\epsilon-1)\epsilon_0.E

E=\lambda\div({2\pi.\epsilon\epsilon_0.r})

If we placed to first equation we get:

\rho_b=0

\sigma_b=P.n

where is n is unit vector
for outer metalic shell:

\sigma_b(r_2)=P(r_2)=(\epsilon-1)\epsilon_0\lambda\div({2\pi.\epsilon\epsilon_0.r_2})

for inner metalic shell:

\sigma_b(r_1)=-P(r_1)=-(\epsilon-1)\epsilon_0\lambda\div({2\pi.\epsilon\epsilon_0.r_1})

For charge for the inner shell

\sigma_1.2\pi.r_1.h=q_1

For charge for the outer shell

\sigma_2.2\pi.r_2.h=q_2

For current

i=q/T

when we calculate current inner and outer's effect of magnetic field canceled. Where is the mistake if there is? Or what variables cause to magnetic field? HELP PLEASE

Your work looks good, but you didn't show how you are calculating the B field. Are you getting that B = 0 everywhere?

sorry, i will continue:
$\sigma_2$ positive, $\sigma_1$ is negative; so current of outer sphere is anticlockwise, current of inner sphere is clockwise.

i_1=q_1\div{T}=\sigma_1.2.\pi.r_1h\div{2\pi/\omega}=\sigma_1.\omega.r_1.h

i_2=q_2\div{T}=\sigma_2.2.\pi.r_2h\div{2\pi/\omega}=\sigma_2.\omega.r_2.h

The direction of magnetic field is up. now lets consider the r<$r_1$ region. We think this system like selenoid.

B=\mu_0.i\div{h}

In the this region magnetic field directions are opposite and canceled. Also in the region $r>r_2$ canceled. But the magnetic field in the region$r_2>r>r$ they don't canceled. (I found my mistake)

B_1=0 for this region.TSny pointed out.

B_2=\mu_0.\sigma_2.\omega.r_2.h\div{h}=\mu_0.\sigma_2.\omega.r_2

And i obtain

B=\mu_0.\omega.\sigma_2.r_2

If i put \sigma_2. value:

B=\mu_0.\omega.(\epsilon-1)\lambda\div({2\epsilon.\pi})

Do you see any error in my calculations?

That all looks correct to me.

so thanks

Oh wait. Sorry. I think you are right that B = 0 for $r< r_1$ and $r > r_2$. But I don't think you have the correct expression for $r_1 < r < r_2.$.

For an ideal solenoid, what is B outside the solenoid?

ohhh yes you are correct i'll edit now.

$B=\mu_0.\omega.(\epsilon-1)\lambda\div({2\epsilon.\pi})$
OK.
