2 1. True/False [10 points, no partial credit] Mark T (True) or F (False) in the space at the right of each statement. NOTE: You should mark a statement TRUE only if it is always true . (a) As the temperature of a metal wire is increased, its resistance decreases because its electrons move more rapidly in their thermal motions. (b) An electron in a conductor can never feel an electric force. (c) As current passes through the filament of a light bulb, electrons are converted into heat and light. (d) The voltage drop around a closed loop in a circuit can be nonzero provided this loop involves a capacitor. (e) A positively charged object cannot feel an electric force from a neutral object. (f) If a region of space contains no charges, the electric field must be zero everywhere on the boundary of this region. (g) If the electric field is zero throughout some region of space, the electric potential has the same value everywhere in this region. (h) An electron placed between the plates of a charged parallel-plate capacitor cannot move in a straight line. (j)
