Chapter 25: Sections 1, 2, 3abc, 4-7. Assignment: Solutions posted on Wednesday, February 7. Quiz may be given on or after Tuesday, February 13. 1. In an electron gun of an oscilloscope or TV set, an electron starts from rest at the surface of electrode 1 and is accelerated towards electrode 2, passing through a small hole there. The electrodes are connected to a voltage source that keeps a constant potential difference Δ V (usually referred to as just V ) between them. (a) Label the terminals of the voltage source + and . Which electrode is at a higher electric potential? (b) If the distance between the electrodes was increased while keeping Δ V fixed, how would the electric field between the electrodes change? Please explain. (c) What effect would the change described in the previous part have on the final speed of an electron passing through the hole in electrode 2? Please explain. voltage source V 1 2 2. A spherical metal shell with inner radius b and outer radius c has a net charge of + . Q (a) Write an expression for the electric field E r as a function of distance r from the shell’s center for each of the three regions: r c > , b r c < < , and r b < . Let positve and negative values of E r refer to directions away from and towards the shell’s center, respectively.

    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.
