1 PHYS 1304 Mid-term Exam Name ID 1. (Total 30 points) Two point charges, q 1 and q 2 , are fixed in space. The distance between the two charges is d . Here q 1 = 2.0 μC, q 2 = 8.0 μC, and d = 9.0 cm. 1 μC = 10 -6 C. (a, 20 points) Find the point in space that is close to the two charges where the electric field is 0. (b, 10 points) Now you move a charge q 3 from infinitely far away to this point, how much work you have to do during this process when q 3 = 1.0 μC? The Coulomb constant k e = 8.99×10 9 N · m 2 /C 2 . (c, bonus 5 points, do it when you have time in the end) Is q 3 in a stable or unstable equilibrium condition? Would your answer change if q 3 = -1.0 μC?

2 PHYS 1304 Mid-term Exam Name ID 1. (30 points) Two infinitely large plates made of insulating material (ignore its dielectric property) are placed distance D apart, parallel to each other. The thickness of each plate is d . One plate has a volume charge density ρ (assuming positive charge), the other -

Find (a, 20 points) the current through each resister, (b, 5 points) the power consumed by the 4.0 ohm resistor, (c, 5 points) the energy stored in the capacitor. (d, 10 points) If we start the time when the switch S is thrown open (this is the moment when t = 0), calculate the current in each resistor as a function of time t , with t 0.
