02 Oscillating Sphere
A light sphere with a conducting surface is suspended from a thin wire. When the sphere is rotated about its vertical axis (thereby twisting the wire) and then released, it starts to oscillate. Investigate how the presence of a magnetic field affects the motion.

  • Torque on a Spinning Hollow Sphere in a Uniform Magnetic Field

    The torque on a spinning spherical conducting shell of arbitrary thickness in a uniform magnetic field is calculated in terms of the magnetic vector potential.
