Physics 21 Spring 2008 January 23, 2008 HW-6 Solutions 6-1. (HRW 24-111) Point charges of equal magnitudes (25 nC) and opposite signs are placed on diagonally opposite corners of a rectangle. Point A is the unoccupied corner nearest the positive charge, and point B is the other unoccupied corner. Determine the potential difference V B - V A. Solution: We denote q = 25 × 10 –9 C, y = 0.6 m, x = 0.8 m, with V = the net potential (assuming V 0 as r ).

(HRW 25-1) The two metal objects in Fig. 25-25 have net charges of +70 pC and 70 pC, which result in a 20 V potential difference between them. (a) What is the capacitance of the system? (b) If the charges are changed to +200 pC and 200 pC, what does the capacitance become? (c) What does the potential difference become?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
