Chapter 26 1. (a) The charge that passes through any cross section is the product of the current and time. Since 4.0 min = (4.0 min)(60 s/min) = 240 s, q = it = (5.0 A)(240 s) = 1.2 10 3 C. (b) The number of electrons N is given by q = Ne , where e is the magnitude of the charge on an electron. Thus, N = q / e = (1200 C)/(1.60 10 –19 C) = 7.5 10 21 . 2. We adapt the discussion in the text to a moving two-dimensional collection of charges. Using for the charge per unit area and w for the belt width, we can see that the transport of charge is expressed in the relationship i = vw , which leads to i vw 100 10 30 50 10 6 7 10 6 2 6 A m s m C m 2 b gc h . . 3. Suppose the charge on the sphere increases by q in time t . Then, in that time its potential increases by V q r 4 0 , where r is the radius of the sphere. This means q r V 4 0 . Now, q = ( i in i out ) t , where i in is the current entering the sphere and i out is the current leaving. Thus, t q i i r V i i in out in out m V F / m A A s. 4 010 1000 8 99 10 10000020 10000000 56 10 0 9 3 . . . . . b gb g c hb g 4. We express the magnitude of the current density vector in SI units by converting the diameter values in mils to inches (by dividing by 1000) and then converting to meters (by multiplying by 0.0254) and finally using 1069

CHAPTER 26 J i A i R i D 2 2 4 . For example, the gauge 14 wire with D = 64 mil = 0.0016 m is found to have a (maximum safe) current density of J = 7.2 10 6 A/m 2 . In fact, this is the wire with the largest value of J allowed by the given data. The values of J in SI units are plotted below as a function of their diameters in mils. 5. (a) The magnitude of the current density is given by J = nqv d , where n is the number of particles per unit volume, q is the charge on each particle, and v d is the drift speed of the particles. The particle concentration is n = 2.0 10 8 /cm 3 = 2.0 10 14 m –3 , the charge is q = 2 e = 2(1.60 10 –19 C) = 3.20 10 –19 C, and the drift speed is 1.0 10 5 m/s.

### 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.
