Two magnets are placed near each other on a space station orbiting Earth. Their north and south poles are facing each other. Which statement explains what will happen to the magnets A. They will be attracted because they are in each other's electric field. B. They will be attracted because they are in each other's magnetic field. C. They will be repelled because they are in each other's gravitational field. D. They will be repelled because they are in each other's magnetic field.

Consider a long (aka infinite) conducting wire, with a diameter of 1 mm. It is charged with a linear charge density of +8 nC/m. There also exists a point charge of 13 nC at a distance of 4cm above the wire. What is the electric field at point P, 8 cm below the wire? What is the maximum mass of a -15nC point charge such that it is suspended in place at point P? (Hint for second question, you are balancing the electric force and gravity.)

In the structure shown below, all flux lines in the core are assumed to cross the air gap. The structure dimensions are as follows: core cross-sectional area Am = 20 cm2, mean-path length em = 40 cm, eg = 2 mm, and N = 75 turns. The iron-core permeability can be assumed to be constant with ur = 4500. The coil current i (-30 A) is below the saturation level. Calculate the flux density in the air gap, (a) including the reluctance of the core as well as that of the air gap and (b) ignoring the core reluctance in comparison to the reluctance of the air gap.
