1. [MI02 18.RQ.12.alt01.] 2/2 points | 3/4 submissions Last Response | Show Details All Responses Notes A steady-state current flows through the Nichrome wire in the circuit shown in Figure 18.64. Figure 18.64 Before attempting to answer these question, draw a copy of this diagram. All of the locations indicated by letters are inside the wire. (a) On your diagram, show the electric field at the locations indicated, paying attention to relative magnitude. (b) Carefully draw pluses and minuses on your diagram to show the approximate surface charge distribution that produces the electric field you drew. Make your drawing show clearly the differences between regions of high surface charge density and regions of low surface charge density. Use your diagram to answer the following question: Which of the following statments about this circuit are true? [_] [_] The magnitude of the electric field inside the wire is larger at location G than at location C . [x] [x] The electric field points to the left at location A . [_] [_] There is excess charge on the surface of the wire near the batteries, but nowhere else. [_] [_] Inside the metal wire the magnitude of the electric field is zero. [_] [_] There is no excess charge on the surface of the wire. [x]
