Problem 14PE

Integrated Concepts (a) A lightning bolt produces a rapidly varying magnetic field. If the bolt strikes the earth vertically and acts like a current in a long straight wire, it will induce a voltage in a loop aligned like that in Figure 23.57(b). What voltage is induced in a 1.00 m diameter loop 50.0 m from a 2.00×106 A lightning strike, if the current falls to zero in 25.0 μs ? (b) Discuss circumstances under which such a voltage would produce noticeable consequences.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 14PE

a.)  The induced voltage is 251 V

b.) Consider an example of the ring which is the alternator in your car. If you were driving during a lightning storm and this large bolt of lightning hit...
