18.77. Set Up: With air between the layers, and The energy density in the electric field is The volume of a shell of thickness t and average radius R is The volume of a solid sphere of radius R is With the dielectric present, and Solve: (a) (b) The outer wall of the cell is at higher potential, since it has positive charge. (c) For the cell, and The volume of the cell wall is The total electric field in the cell wall is (d) and 18.78. Set Up: Let a be the initial situation, where the alpha particle is very far from the gold nucleus and has kinetic energy At a the gold nucleus has zero kinetic energy. Let b be at the distance of closest approach, when the distance between the two particles is Conservation of energy says The alpha particle has charge and the gold nucleus has charge Solve: and since at the distance of closest approach the alpha particle has momentar- ily come to rest. since is very large. Conservation of energy gives 18.79.

    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.
