Correct answer: 950 . 714 V. Explanation: Let : s = 6 . 1% = 0 . 061 , c = 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s , m e = 9 . 10939 × 10 − 31 kg , and q e = 1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C . The speed of the electron is v = 0 . 061 c = 0 . 061 ( 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s ) = 1 . 82873 × 10 7 m / s , By conservation of energy 1 2 m e v 2 = − ( − q e ) Δ V Δ V = m e v 2 2 q e = ( 9 . 10939 × 10 − 31 kg ) × ( 1 . 82873 × 10 7 m / s ) 2 2 (1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C) = 950 . 714 V . 002 10.0 points (a) A test charge + q is brought to a point A a distance r from the center of a sphere having a net charge + Q . (b) Next, a test charge +5 q is brought to a point B a distance 5 r from the center of the sphere. Compared with the electrostatic potential energy of configuration (a), the potential en- ergy in configuration (b) is 1. smaller. 2. the same. correct 3. greater. Explanation: U A = k Qq r and U B = k Q (5 q ) 5 r = U A 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points An electron gun fires electrons at the screen of a television tube. The electrons start from rest and are accelerated through a potential difference of 13500 V. The charge and mass on an electron are 1 . 6 × 10 − 19 C and 9 . 11 × 10 − 31 kg, respectively. What is the energy of the electrons when they hit the screen? Correct answer: 2 . 16 × 10 − 15 J. Explanation: Let : Δ V = 13500 V .

Correct answer: 6 . 88625 × 10 7 m / s. Explanation: Let : Δ V = 13500 V , e = 1 . 6 × 10 − 19 C , and m e = 9 . 11 × 10 − 31 kg . – HW3 – Tsoi – (60250) 2 e Δ V = 1 2 mv 2 v = radicalbigg 2 e Δ V m e = radicalBigg 2 (1 . 6 × 10 − 19 C) (13500 V) 9 . 11 × 10 − 31 kg = 6 . 88625 × 10 7 m / s . 005 10.0 points Four positive charges of magnitude q are ar- ranged at the corners of a square, as shown. At the center C of the square, the potential due to one charge alone is V , and the electric field due to one charge alone has magnitude E . b b b b b C + q + q + q + q Which of the following correctly gives the electric potential and the magnitude of the electric field at the center of the square due to all four charges?
