Physics 21 Fall 2007 Solution to HW-4 (B) The total flux does not depend on the size of the cube. 22.2 A flat sheet is in the shape of a rectangle with sides of length 0.400 m and 0.600 m. The sheet is immersed in a uniform electric field of magnitude E that is directed at 20 degrees from the plane of the sheet. Find the magnitude of the electric flux through the sheet. 22.24 A point charge of charge - Q is located in the center of a spherical cavity or radius r inside an insulating spherical charged solid. The charge density in the solid is ρ . (A) Calculate the magnitude of the electric field inside the solid at a distance d > r from the center of the cavity. (B) Find the direction of the electric field at the distance d inside the solid. 22.36 A long line carrying a uniform linear charge density λ runs parallel to and d = 10.0 cm from the surface of a large flat plastic sheet that has a uniform surface charge density of σ (negative charge) on one side. Find the location of all points

Between the line and plane is not possible 22.44 A conducting spherical shell with inner radius a and outer radius b has a positive point charge Q at its center. The total charge on the shell is -3 Q , and it is insulated from its surroundings. Find E ( r ) for (A) r < a , (B) a < r < b and (C) r > b . Find (D) σ on the inner surface at a and (E) on the outer surface at b . Flux out of a Cube A point charge of magnitude Q is at the center of a cube with sides of length L . (A) What is the electric flux through each of the six faces of the cube? (B) What if L changes? (A) NB : This problem involves an insulator, which can have a uniform volume charge density. Compare problem 22.44, which involves a conductor, inside of which E = 0. d A 70 o NB: The angle between d A and E is 70 o . E...
