Physics 2426 Midterm Chapters 21 - 29 Brad Moore – Web Sample (Summer 2010) Name: Section: Select the response that best answers the given statement. Be sure to write all final multiple choice answers on your Scantron answer sheet. 1) When atom A loses an electron to atom B, A) atom A acquires more neutrons than atom B. B) atom A becomes a negative ion and atom B becomes a positive ion. C) atom A acquires less neutrons than atom B. D) atom A becomes more negative than atom B. E) atom A becomes a positive ion and atom B becomes a negative ion. 2) Three point charges are located at the following positions: Q 1 = 2.00 μC at x = 1.00 m; Q 2 = 3.00 μC at x = 0; Q 3 = -5.00 μC at x = -1.00 m. What is the magnitude of the force on the 3.00-μC charge? A) 5.40 × 10 -2 N B) 0.158 N C) 0.189 N D) 0.135 N E) 8.10 × 10 -2 N 3) Consider a spherical Gaussian surface of radius R centered at the origin. A charge Q is placed inside the sphere. Where should the charge be located to maximize the magnitude of the flux of the electric field through the Gaussian surface? A) at x = 0, y = 0, z = R/2 B) at x = 0, y = R/2, z = 0 C) at x = R/2, y = 0, z = 0 D) at the origin E) The flux does not depend on the position of the charge as long as it is inside the sphere 4) A charge q = 2 μC is placed at the origin in a region where there is already a uniform electric field = (100 N/C) î. Calculate the flux of the net electric field through a Gaussian sphere of radius R = 10 cm centered at the origin. A) 5.52 × 10 5 N m 2 /C B) 0.565 × 10 5 N m 2 /C C) 2.26 × 10 5 N m 2 /C D) 1.13 × 10 5 N m 2 /C E) 0 1

    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.
