Young North Carolina State University About this Assignment Due: Monday, February 13 , 2006 07:30 AM EST Current Score: 29 out of 29 Question Score Submissions Made: 5 out of 5 Submission Options Description Potential at a location ; potential differences in regions with varying fields; potential and field inside an insulator iew: All esponses otes pts 1 2/2 2 2/2 4/4 1. A highly charged piece of metal (with uniform potential throughout) tends to spark at places where the radius of curvature is small, or at places where there are sharp points. The breakdown electric field strength for air is about 3 10 6 V/m. (a) What is the maximum possible potential of a metal sphere of 8 cm radius in air? (That is, what is the potential at the surface of the sphere, relative to infinity?) 2.4e5 [2.40e+05] volts (b) What is the maximum possible potential of a metal sphere of only 0.2 mm radius? 600 [600] volts Solution or Explanation: At the surface of the sphere, E = 3e6 V/m. Solve for q, then find V at the surface of the sphere. iew: All esponses otes pts 1 2/2 2 2/2 3 1/1 4 1/1 5 2/2 8/8 2.
