Consider 2 spheres on equal radius a, each carrying a total charge Q. Sphere 1 is made of metal and sphere 2 of plastic (uniformly distributed). (a) Whar are the electric fields inside both sphere ? (b) About outside the spheres ? (c) Explain your results in term of how charges behave. 2. Find C for a a cylindrical capacitor of length L inner radius a and outer radius b . (Hint: first, use gauss’s Law to get the electric field). 3. Consider the circuit on the right. (a) Draw the potential V from point1 to point 4. (b) Draw the current between 1 and 4. 4. We have two identical light bulbs. First I hook them up in series. Then I hook them up in parallel. In which case are the bulbs brighter? (The resistors represent light bulbs whose brightness is proportional to P = I 2 R through the resistor.). Please explain your answer. 5. Consider the circuit at right after the switch is closed (a) What is the initial current I? (b) What

### What students are saying

• 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.
