Select the answer that best completes the question.
1. A long wire that carries a current I is bent into five loops as shown in the figure.

If the observer could "see" the magnetic field inside this arrangement of loops, how would it appear?


Answer:
2. A wire, connected to a battery and switch, passes through the center of a long current-carrying solenoid as shown in the drawing.

A.There is no effect on the wire.
B.The wire is pushed downward.
C.The wire is pushed upward.
D.The wire is pushed into the plane of the paper.
E.The wire is pushed out of the plane of the paper.
3. Two loops carry equal currents I in the same direction. The loops are held in the positions shown in the figure and are then released. Which one of the following statements correctly describes the subsequent behavior of the loops?

A.Both loops move to the left.
B.The loops remain in the positions shown.
C.The top loop moves to the right; the bottom loop moves to the right.
D.The loops repel each other.
E.The loops attract each other.
4. Four long, straight wires are parallel to each other; and their cross-section forms a square. Each side of the square is 0.02 m as shown in the figure.

6. Two loops carry equal currents I in the same direction. They are held in the positions shown in the figure and project above and below the plane of the paper. The point P lies exactly halfway between them on the line that joins their centers. The centers of the loops and the point P lie in the plane of the paper. Which one of the figures below shows the position of a compass needle if the compass were placed in the plane of the paper at P?



Answer:
