The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points The work needed to carry a 1 C charge from point A to point B is 10 J. Calculate the potential difference between point A and B. Correct answer: 10 V. Explanation: Let : q = 1 C and W = 10 J . The work is W = q V V = W q = 10 J 1 C = 10 V . keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A particle with charge 4 C is located on the xaxis at the point 4 cm , and a second particle with charge 8 C is placed on the xaxis at 8 cm . The Coulomb constant is 8 . 9875 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 . 2 4 6 8 10 2 4 6 8 10 4 C 8 C 5 C x (cm) What is the magnitude of the total elec trostatic force on a third particle with charge 5 C placed on the xaxis at 2 cm? Correct answer: 349 . 514 N. Explanation: Let : q 1 = 4 C = 4 10 6 C , q 2 = 8 C = 8 10 6 C , q 3 = 5 C = 5 10 6 C , x 1 = 4 cm = . 04 m , x 2 = 8 cm = . 08 m , and x 3 = 2 cm = . 02 m . Coulombs law (in vector form) for the elec tric force exerted by a charge q 1 on a second charge q 3 , written ~ F 13 is ~ F 13 = k e q 1 q 3 r 2 r 13 , where r 13 is a unit vector directed from q 1 to q 3 ; i.e. , ~r 13 = ~r 3 ~r 1 . x 13 = x 3 x 1 = ( 2 cm) ( 4 cm) = 0 . 02 m x 23 = x 3 x 2 = ( 2 cm) ( 8 cm) = 0 . 06 m x 13 = x 3 x 1 p ( x 3 x 1 ) 2 = + x 23 = x 3 x 2 p ( x 3 x 2 ) 2 = + Since the forces are collinear, the force on the third particle is the algebraic sum of the forces between the first and third and the second and third particles. ~ F = ~ F 13 + ~ F 23 = k e q 1 r 2 13 r 13 + q 2 r 2 23 r 23 q 3 = 8 . 9875 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 ( 4 10 6 C) (0 . 02 m) 2 (+ ) + (8 10 6 C) (0 . 06 m) 2 (+ ) ( 5 10 6 C) = (449 . 375 N) + ( 99 . 8611 N) = 349 . 514 N k ~ F k = 349 . 514 N . keywords: 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Daniels, Matthew Quiz 1 Due: Sep 21 2006, 11:00 pm Inst: Ditmire 2 A wire that has a uniform linear charge den sity of 1 . 7 C / m is bent into the shape as shown below, with radius 1 . 3 m. 2 . 6 m 2 . 6 m p 1 . 3 m The Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 . Find the electrical potential at point p . Correct answer: 81570 . 9 V. Explanation: Let : = 1 . 7 C / m = 1 . 7 10 6 C / m , R = 1 . 3 m , 2 R = 2 . 6 m , and k e = 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 . 2 R 2 R p R Let p be the origin.
