Chapter 20 Problem
The magnetization within a bar of some metal alloy is 3.7105 A/m at an H field of 63 A/m.
Calculate the following: (a) The magnetic susceptibility. (b) The magnetic permeability (in
H/m). (c) The magnetic flux density within this material (in tesla). (0: 410-7 H/m)
An iron bar magnet having a coercivity of 4600 A/m is to be demagnetized. If the bar is
inserted within a cylindrical wire coil 0.15 m long and having 230 turns, what electric current
is required to generate the necessary magnetic field?
Assume that the commercial iron (99.95 wt% Fe) listed in Table 20.5 below just reaches the
point of saturation when inserted within a coil 0.2 m long having 220 turns and carrying a
current of 11 A. Compute the saturation magnetization. The value of the permeability of a
vacuum is 1.25710-6 H/m.
Determine the Bohr magnetons associated with an iron atom, given that the saturation
magnetization is 1.7106 A/m, that iron has a BCC crystal structure, and that unit cell edge
length is 0.2866 nm. (B: 9.2710-24 Am2)
Estimate (a) the saturation magnetization, and (b) the saturation flux density of nickel ferrite
[(NiFe2O4)8], which has a unit cell edge length of 0.8337 nm. Values of the permeability of a
vacuum and for the Bohr magneton are 1.25710-6 H/m and 9.2710-24 Am2, respectively. Use
data given in Table 20.4 below.
The chemical formula for manganese ferrite may be written as (MnFe2O4)8 because there are
eight formula units per unit cell. If this material has a saturation magnetization of 5.0105 A/m
and a density of 5.19 g/cm3, estimate the number of Bohr magnetons associated with each
Mn2+ ion. (B: 9.2710-24 Am2, AMn: 54.94 g/mol, AFe: 55.85 g/mol, AO: 16.00 g/mol, NA:
A cobalt-nickel alloy is desired that has a saturation magnetization of 1.3106 A/m. Specify its
composition in weight percent nickel. Cobalt has a HCP crystal structure with c/a ratio of
1.635, whereas the maximum solubility of Ni in Co at room temperature is approximately 35
wt%. Assume that the unit cell volume for this alloy is the same as for pure Co, and the radius
of Co is 0.125 nm. For cobalt and nickel, the net magnetic moments per atom are 1.72 and 0.60
Bohr magnetons, respectively. The atomic radius of cobalt is 0.125 nm. (B: 9.2710-24 Am2,
ACo: 58.93 g/mol, ANi: 58.69 g/mol)

□ A relatively small hysteresis loop.
□ A relatively large hysteresis loop.
□ Magnetization and demagnetization may be achieved using relatively low applied fields.
□ Magnetization and demagnetization require relatively high applied fields.

□ Copper.
