PHYS208 Fundamentals of Physics II

Hint for Ch. 30, 39P

a) Use the result for the magnetic field about a long straight wire; use superposition to find the magnetic field at each point on the projectile. Integrate along the length of the projectile to get the total force on it.

b) The work done by the magnetic force will go into kinetic energy of the projectile.
