Chapter 23 23.4 What is the magnitude of a point charge that would create and electric field of 1.00N/C at points 1.00m away. E = q 4 p e 0 r 2 q = 4 p e 0 r 2 E = 1.112 10 - 10 C 23.7 An atom of plutonium-239 has a nuclear radius of 6.64fm and atomic number Z=94. Assuming that the positive charge is distributed uniformly within the nucleus, what are the magnitude and direction of the electric field at the surface of the nucleus due to the positive charge. Outside a uniformly charged sphere, the field looks like that of a point charge at the center of the sphere. E = q 4 p e 0 r 2 = 94 1.6 10 - 19 C 4 p e 0 (6.64 10 - 15 m ) 2 = 3.07 10 21 N / C ! 23.11 In Fig. 23-28, what is the magnitude of the electric field at point P due to the four point charges shown? The fields due to the two +5q charges cancel exactly. We only need consider the fields due to the +3q and -12q charges.

16. Find the magnitude and direction of the electric field at point P due to the electric dipole. You may assume that r>>d +q -q (0,d/2) (0,-d/2) (r,0) We begin by writing the exact field. r E = r E + + r E - = q 4 p e 0 r + 2 ˆ r + - q 4 p e 0 r - 2 ˆ r - r r + = ( r - 0) ˆ i + (0 - d 2 ) ˆ j r + = r 2 + ( d 2 ) 2 ˆ r + = r r + r + = r ˆ i - d 2 ˆ j r 2 + ( d 2 ) 2 r r - = ( r - 0) ˆ i + (0 - ( - d 2 )) ˆ j r - = r 2 + ( d 2 ) 2 ˆ r - = r r - r - = r ˆ i + d 2 ˆ j r 2 + ( d 2 ) 2 We can substitute in. In the last step, since d/2r is very small we ignore this term. Remember that the direction of p is in the +j direction in this problem (from - to + charge).

Ring 1 has uniform charge q 1 and radius R; ring 2 has uniform charge q 2 and the same radius R. The rings are separated by a distance 3R. The net electric field at P on the common line at a distance R from ring 1 is zero. What is the ratio q 1 / q 2 ?

    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.
