Unformatted text preview: Physics 21 Fall, 2004 Solution, Hour Exam #1 The graders for the problems were: 1 Pagan, 2 Lowe, 3 Shaffer, 4 Wentzel, 5 Hickman For questions about the grading, see the grader by Oct. 1. Problem 1. 1 Ω 4 Ω 2 Ω 2 Ω I 1 I 3 I 2 1 V 8 V 9 V 1 2 (a) Write the loop and node equations needed to determine the currents I 1 , I 2 , and I 3 in the circuit shown. Indicate clearly the loop used to determine each loop equation. node: I 2 = I 1 + I 3 loop 1: 9 − I 1 − 2 I 1 − 4 I 2 = 0 loop 2: 8 − 2 I 3 − 1 − 4 I 2 = 0 (b) Determine the currents by explicit solution of the equa tions. You must show your work. Rearrange loop 1 and loop 2 equations: loop 1: 3 I 1 + 4 I 2 = 9 loop 2: 4 I 2 + 2 I 3 = 7 Use the node equation to eliminate I 3 = I 2 − I 1 : 3 I 1 + 4 I 2 = 9 (1) − 2 I 1 + 6 I 2 = 7 (2) Multiply (1) by 2 and (2) by 3; add and solve for I 2 . Substitute back for I 1 then I 3 . Results are I 1 = 1 . 0 A , I 2 = 1 . 5 A , I 3 = 0 . 5 A Problem 2. The circular ring of charge shown in the di agram is in the xy plane centered at the origin and has a radius R . A total charge of Q is spread uniformly around the ring. R P (x=0,y=0,z) y z x Q θ (a) Find an expression for the linear charge density λ on the ring. λ = Total charge circumference = Q 2 πR (b) Give the components of the vector shown in the diagram from the point on the ring at angle θ (with respect to the x axis) to the point P ....
