A Note To The Instructor...
The solutions here are somewhat brief, as they are designed for the instructor, not for the student.
Check with the publishers before electronically posting any part of these solutions; website, ftp, or
server access must be restricted to your students.
I have been somewhat casual about subscripts whenever it is obvious that a problem is one
dimensional, or that the choice of the coordinate system is irrelevant to the numerical solution.
Although this does not change the validity of the answer, it will sometimes obfuscate the approach
if viewed by a novice.
There are some traditional formula, such as
2
2
vx = v0x + 2ax x,
which are not used in the text. The worked solutions use only material from the text, so there may
be times when the solution here seems unnecessarily convoluted and drawn out. Yes, I know an
easier approach existed. But if it was not in the text, I did not use it here.
I also tried to avoid reinventing the wheel. There are some exercises and problems in the text
which build upon previous exercises and problems. Instead of rederiving expressions, I simply refer
you to the previous solution.
I adopt a diﬀerent approach for rounding of signiﬁcant ﬁgures than previous authors; in particular, I usually round intermediate answers. As such, some of my answers will diﬀer from those in
the back of the book.
Exercises and Problems which are enclosed in a box also appear in the Student’s Solution Manual
with considerably more detail and, when appropriate, include discussion on any physical implications
of the answer. These student solutions carefully discuss the steps required for solving problems, point
out the relevant equation numbers, or even specify where in the text additional information can be
found. When two almost equivalent methods of solution exist, often both are presented. You are
encouraged to refer students to the Student’s Solution Manual for these exercises and problems.
However, the material from the Student’s Solution Manual must not be copied.

E25-1
The charge transferred is
Q = (2.5 × 104 C/s)(20 × 10−6 s) = 5.0 × 10−1 C.
E25-2 Use Eq. 25-4:

E25-3 Use Eq. 25-4:
F =

= 2.74 N.
(0.123 m)2
E25-4 (a) The forces are equal, so m1 a1 = m2 a2 , or
m2 = (6.31×10−7 kg)(7.22 m/s2 )/(9.16 m/s2 ) = 4.97×10−7 kg.
(b) Use Eq. 25-4:
q=
E25-5
(6.31×10−7 kg)(7.22 m/s2 )(3.20×10−3 m)2
= 7.20×10−11 C

(b) In part (a) we found F12 ; to solve part (b) we need to ﬁrst ﬁnd F13 . Since q3 = q2 and
r13 = r12 , we can immediately conclude that F13 = F12 .
We must assess the direction of the force of q3 on q1 ; it will be directed along the line which
connects the two charges, and will be directed away from q3 . The diagram below shows the directions.

= 3.07 N.

E25-6 Originally F0 = CQ2 = 0.088 N, where C is a constant. When sphere 3 touches 1 the
0
charge on both becomes Q0 /2. When sphere 3 the touches sphere 2 the charge on each becomes
(Q0 + Q0 /2)/2 = 3Q0 /4. The force between sphere 1 and 2 is then
F = C(Q0 /2)(3Q0 /4) = (3/8)CQ2 = (3/8)F0 = 0.033 N.

E25-7 The forces on q3 are F31 and F32 . These forces are given by the vector form of Coulomb’s

are straightforward to ﬁnd. The contributions from the upper left charge require slightly more work.

E25-9 The magnitude of the force on the negative charge from each positive charge is
F = (8.99×109 N · m2 /C2 )(4.18×10−6 C)(6.36×10−6 C)/(0.13 m)2 = 14.1 N.
The force from each positive charge is directed along the side of the triangle; but from symmetry
only the component along the bisector is of interest. This means that we need to weight the above
answer by a factor of 2 cos(30◦ ) = 1.73. The net force is then 24.5 N.
E25-10 Let the charge on one sphere be q, then the charge on the other sphere is Q = (52.6 ×
10−6 C) − q. Then

= F,
4π 0 r2
(8.99×109 N·m2 /C2 )q(52.6×10−6 C − q) = (1.19 N)(1.94 m)2 .
Solve this quadratic expression for q and get answers q1 = 4.02×10−5 C and q2 = 1.24×10−6 N.
E25-11 This problem is similar to Ex. 25-7. There are some additional issues, however. It is
easy enough to write expressions for the forces on the third charge

The only way to satisfy the vector nature of the above expression is to have ˆ31 = ±ˆ32 ; this means
r
r
that q3 must be collinear with q1 and q2 . q3 could be between q1 and q2 , or it could be on either
side. Let’s resolve this issue now by putting the values for q1 and q2 into the expression:

r
Since squared quantities are positive, we can only get this to work if ˆ31 = ˆ32 , so q3 is not between
r
r
q1 and q2 . We are then left with
2
2
r32 = (3.07)r31 ,
so that q3 is closer to q1 than it is to q2 . Then r32 = r31 + r12 = r31 + 0.618 m, and if we take the
square root of both sides of the above expression,
r31 + (0.618 m) =
(3.07)r31 ,
(0.618 m) =
(3.07)r31 − r31 ,
(0.618 m) = 0.752r31 ,
0.822 m = r31

E25-12 The magnitude of the magnetic force between any two charges is kq 2 /a2 , where a =
0.153 m. The force between each charge is directed along the side of the triangle; but from symmetry
only the component along the bisector is of interest. This means that we need to weight the above
answer by a factor of 2 cos(30◦ ) = 1.73. The net force on any charge is then 1.73kq 2 /a2 .
The length of the angle bisector, d, is given by d = a cos(30◦ ).
The distance from any charge to the center of the equilateral triangle is x, given by x2 =
(a/2)2 + (d − x)2 . Then
x = a2 /8d + d/2 = 0.644a.
The angle between the strings and the plane of the charges is θ, given by
sin θ = x/(1.17 m) = (0.644)(0.153 m)/(1.17 m) = 0.0842,
or θ = 4.83◦ .
The force of gravity on each ball is directed vertically and the electric force is directed horizontally.
The two must then be related by
tan θ = F E /F G ,
so
1.73(8.99×109 N · m2 /C2 )q 2 /(0.153 m)2 = (0.0133 kg)(9.81 m/s2 ) tan(4.83◦ ),
or q = 1.29×10−7 C.
E25-13 On any corner charge there are seven forces; one from each of the other seven charges.
The net force will be the sum. Since all eight charges are the same all of the forces will be repulsive.
We need to sketch a diagram to show how the charges are labeled.

The magnitude of the force of charge 2 on charge 1 is
F12 =
1 q2
2 ,
4π 0 r12
where r12 = a, the length of a side. Since both charges are the same we wrote q 2 . By symmetry we
expect that the magnitudes of F12 , F13 , and F14 will all be the same and they will all be at right
angles to each other directed along the edges of the cube. Written in terms of vectors the forces

E25-14 (a) Yes. Changing the sign of y will change the sign of Fy ; since this is equivalent to
putting the charge q0 on the “other” side, we would expect the force to also push in the “other”
direction.

called q in that problem. In either case the distance from q0 will be the same regardless of the sign
of q; if q = Q then q will be on the right, while if q = −Q then q will be on the left.

E25-18 You must solve Ex. 16 and Ex. 17 before solving this problem.
If all charges are positive then moving q0 oﬀ axis will result in a net force away from the axis.
That’s unstable.
If q = −Q then both q and Q are on the same side of q0 . Moving q0 closer to q will result in the
attractive force growing faster than the repulsive force, so q0 will move away from equilibrium.

so Q = 3.07×10−6 C.
E25-21 In each case we conserve charge by making sure that the total number of protons is the
same on both sides of the expression. We also need to conserve the number of neutrons.
(a) Hydrogen has one proton, Beryllium has four, so X must have ﬁve protons. Then X must be
Boron, B.
(b) Carbon has six protons, Hydrogen has one, so X must have seven. Then X is Nitrogen, N.
(c) Nitrogen has seven protons, Hydrogen has one, but Helium has two, so X has 7 + 1 − 2 = 6
protons. This means X is Carbon, C.

(b) The penny has enough electrons to make a total charge of −1.37×105 C. The fraction is then

E25-29 The mass of water is (250 cm3 )(1.00 g/cm ) = 250 g. The number of moles of water is
(250 g)/(18.0 g/mol) = 13.9 mol. The number of water molecules is (13.9 mol)(6.02×1023 mol−1 ) =
8.37×1024 . Each molecule has ten protons, so the total positive charge is
Q = (8.37×1024 )(10)(1.60×10−19 C) = 1.34×107 C.
E25-30 The total positive charge in 0.250 kg of water is 1.34×107 C. Mary’s imbalance is then
q1 = (52.0)(4)(1.34×107 C)(0.0001) = 2.79×105 C,
while John’s imbalance is
q2 = (90.7)(4)(1.34×107 C)(0.0001) = 4.86×105 C,

(b) We need
(5.71 × 1013 C)/(1.60 × 10−19 C) = 3.57 × 1032

(3.57 × 1032 )(1.67 × 10−27 kg) = 5.97 × 1065 kg.
Ignoring the mass of the electron (why not?) we can assume that hydrogen is all protons, so we
need that much hydrogen.

The solution is q2 = 3.0 µC or q2 = −1.0 µC. Then q1 = −1.0 µC or q1 = 3.0 µC.

P25-2 The electrostatic force on Q from each q has magnitude qQ/4π 0 a2 , where a is the length
of the side of the square. The magnitude of the vertical (horizontal) component of the force of Q on
√
Q is 2Q2 /16π 0 a2 .

The total distance is L, so r31 + r32 = L, or r31 = L/3 and r32 = 2L/3.
Now that we have found the position of the third charge we need to ﬁnd the magnitude. The
second and third charges both exert a force on the ﬁrst charge; we want this net force on the ﬁrst
charge to be zero, so

which has solution q3 = −4q/9. The negative sign is because the force between the ﬁrst and second
charge must be in the opposite direction to the force between the ﬁrst and third charge.
(b) Consider what happens to the net force on the middle charge if is is displaced a small distance
z. If the charge 3 is moved toward charge 1 then the force of attraction with charge 1 will increase.
But moving charge 3 closer to charge 1 means moving charge 3 away from charge 2, so the force of
attraction between charge 3 and charge 2 will decrease. So charge 3 experiences more attraction to
ward the charge that it moves toward, and less attraction to the charge it moves away from. Sounds
unstable to me.

The alpha particle has a positive charge, this means that it will experience an electric force which
is in the same direction as the electric ﬁeld. Since the gravitational force is down, the electric force,
and consequently the electric ﬁeld, must be directed up.
E26-4 (a) E = F/q = (3.0×10−6 N)/(2.0×10−9 C) = 1.5×103 N/C.
(b) F = Eq = (1.5×103 N/C)(1.60×10−19 C) = 2.4×10−16 N.

E26-8 If the charges on the line x = a where +q and −q instead of +2q and −2q then at the
center of the square E = 0 by symmetry. This simpliﬁes the problem into ﬁnding E for a charge +q
at (a, 0) and −q at (a, a). This is a dipole, and the ﬁeld is given by Eq. 26-11. For this exercise we

E26-9 The charges at 1 and 7 are opposite and can be eﬀectively replaced with a single charge of
−6q at 7. The same is true for 2 and 8, 3 and 9, on up to 6 and 12. By symmetry we expect the
ﬁeld to point along a line so that three charges are above and three below. That would mean 9:30.

E26-11 Treat the two charges on the left as one dipole and treat the two charges on the right as
a second dipole. Point P is on the perpendicular bisector of both dipoles, so we can use Eq. 26-12

Notice we used an electric ﬁeld strength of E = 3 × 106 N/C, which is the ﬁeld at air breaks down
and sparks happen.
(b) We want to ﬁnd out how many atoms are on the surface; if a is the cross sectional area of
one atom, and N the number of atoms, then A = N a is the surface area of the disk. The number
of atoms is

(1.04 × 10−7 C)/(1.6 × 10−19 C) = 6.5 × 1011
electrons. (We are ignoring the sign of the charge here.) If each surface atom can have at most one
excess electron, then the fraction of atoms which are charged is
(6.5 × 1011 )/(1.31 × 1017 ) = 4.96 × 10−6 ,
which isn’t very many.

is W = F d, where F = Eq is the magnitude of the electric force on the electron and d is the distance
through which the electron moves. Combining,
W = F · d = q E · d,
which gives the work done by the electric ﬁeld on the electron. The electron originally possessed a
1
kinetic energy of K = 2 mv 2 , since we want to bring the electron to a rest, the work done must be
negative. The charge q of the electron is negative, so E and d are pointing in the same direction,
and E · d = Ed.

order of 1.6 × 10−19 C. If so, the likely number of fundamental charges on each of the drops is shown
below in a table arranged like the one in the book:

The total number of charges is 87, while the total charge is 142.69 × 10−19 C, so the average charge
per quanta is 1.64 × 10−19 C.

E26-34 Because of the electric ﬁeld the acceleration toward the ground of a charged particle is
not g, but g ± Eq/m, where the sign depends on the direction of the electric ﬁeld.

expression by this, and then

E26-35 The ink drop travels an additional time t = d/vx , where d is the additional horizontal

pE = (2.5 × 10−28 C · m)(3.4 × 106 N/C) = 8.5 × 10−22 N · m.
The only thing we care about is the angle.
(a) For the parallel case θ = 0, so sin θ = 0, and τ = 0.
(b) For the perpendicular case θ = 90◦ , so sin θ = 1, and τ = 8.5 × 10−22 N · m..

P26-5 A monopole ﬁeld falls oﬀ as 1/r2 . A dipole ﬁeld falls oﬀ as 1/r3 , and consists of two
oppositely charge monopoles close together. A quadrupole ﬁeld (see Exercise 11 above or read
Problem 4) falls oﬀ as 1/r4 and (can) consist of two otherwise identical dipoles arranged with antiparallel dipole moments. Just taking a leap of faith it seems as if we can construct a 1/r6 ﬁeld
behavior by extending the reasoning.
First we need an octopole which is constructed from a quadrupole. We want to keep things as
simple as possible, so the construction steps are
1. The monopole is a charge +q at x = 0.
2. The dipole is a charge +q at x = 0 and a charge −q at x = a. We’ll call this a dipole at
x = a/2
3. The quadrupole is the dipole at x = a/2, and a second dipole pointing the other way at
x = −a/2. The charges are then −q at x = −a, +2q at x = 0, and −q at x = a.
4. The octopole will be two stacked, oﬀset quadrupoles. There will be −q at x = −a, +3q at
x = 0, −3q at x = a, and +q at x = 2a.
5. Finally, our distribution with a far ﬁeld behavior of 1/r6 . There will be +q at x = 2a, −4q at
x = −a, +6q at x = 0, −4q at x = a, and +q at x = 2a.
P26-6 The vertical component of E is simply half of Eq. 26-17. The horizontal component is

Since the vertical and horizontal components are equal then E makes an angle of 45◦ .
P26-7 (a) Swap all positive and negative charges in the problem and the electric ﬁeld must reverse
direction. But this is the same as ﬂipping the problem over; consequently, the electric ﬁeld must
point parallel to the rod. This only holds true at point P , because point P doesn’t move when you
ﬂip the rod.
25
(b) We are only interested in the vertical component of the ﬁeld as contributed from each point
on the rod. We can integrate only half of the rod and double the answer, so we want to evaluate

P26-9 The key statement is the second italicized paragraph on page 595; the number of ﬁeld
lines through a unit cross-sectional area is proportional to the electric ﬁeld strength. If the exponent
is n, then the electric ﬁeld strength a distance r from a point charge is
E=
kq
,
rn
and the total cross sectional area at a distance r is the area of a spherical shell, 4πr2 . Then the
number of ﬁeld lines through the shell is proportional to
EA =
kq
4πr2 = 4πkqr2−n .
rn
Note that the number of ﬁeld lines varies with r if n = 2. This means that as we go farther from
the point charge we need more and more ﬁeld lines (or fewer and fewer). But the ﬁeld lines can only
start on charges, and we don’t have any except for the point charge. We have a problem; we really
do need n = 2 if we want workable ﬁeld lines.
P26-10 The distance traveled by the electron will be d1 = a1 t2 /2; the distance traveled by the
proton will be d2 = a2 t2 /2. a1 and a2 are related by m1 a1 = m2 a2 , since the electric force is the
same (same charge magnitude). Then d1 + d2 = (a1 + a2 )t2 /2 is the 5.00 cm distance. Divide by
the proton distance, and then

This is a real answer, so this means the electron either hits the top plate, or it misses both plates.
The time taken to reach the height of the top plate is

In this time the electron has moved a horizontal distance of

This is clearly on the upper plate.

(d) In each case the ﬁeld is uniform so we can simply evaluate ΦE = E · A, where A has six
parts, one for every face. The faces, however, have the same size but are organized in pairs with
opposite directions. These will cancel, so the total ﬂux is zero in all three cases.
E27-3
(a) The ﬂat base is easy enough, since according to Eq. 27-7,
ΦE =
E · dA.
There are two important facts to consider in order to integrate this expression. E is parallel to the
axis of the hemisphere, E points inward while dA points outward on the ﬂat base. E is uniform, so
it is everywhere the same on the ﬂat base. Since E is anti-parallel to dA, E · dA = −E dA, then
E · dA = −
ΦE =
E dA.
Since E is uniform we can simplify this as
ΦE = −
dA = −EA = −πR2 E.
E dA = −E
The last steps are just substituting the area of a circle for the ﬂat side of the hemisphere.
(b) We must ﬁrst sort out the dot product
E
dA
R
θ
φ
We can simplify the vector part of the problem with E · dA = cos θE dA, so
ΦE =
E · dA =
cos θE dA
Once again, E is uniform, so we can take it out of the integral,
ΦE =
cos θE dA = E
cos θ dA
Finally, dA = (R dθ)(R sin θ dφ) on the surface of a sphere centered on R = 0.

E27-6 The total ﬂux through the sphere is
ΦE = (−1 + 2 − 3 + 4 − 5 + 6)(×103 N · m2 /C) = 3×103 N · m2 /C.
The charge inside the die is (8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m2 )(3×103 N · m2 /C) = 2.66×10−8 C.
E27-7 The total ﬂux through a cube would be q/ 0 . Since the charge is in the center of the cube
we expect that the ﬂux through any side would be the same, or 1/6 of the total ﬂux. Hence the ﬂux
through the square surface is q/6 0 .
E27-8 If the electric ﬁeld is uniform then there are no free charges near (or inside) the net. The
ﬂux through the netting must be equal to, but opposite in sign, from the ﬂux through the opening.
The ﬂux through the opening is Eπa2 , so the ﬂux through the netting is −Eπa2 .
E27-9 There is no ﬂux through the sides of the cube. The ﬂux through the top of the cube is
(−58 N/C)(100 m)2 = −5.8×105 N · m2 /C. The ﬂux through the bottom of the cube is
(110 N/C)(100 m)2 = 1.1×106 N · m2 /C.
The total ﬂux is the sum, so the charge contained in the cube is
q = (8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m2 )(5.2×105 N · m2 /C) = 4.60×10−6 C.
E27-10 (a) There is only a ﬂux through the right and left faces. Through the right face
ΦR = (2.0 m2 )ˆ · (3 N/C · m)(1.4 m)ˆ = 8.4 N · m2 /C.
j
j
The ﬂux through the left face is zero because y = 0.
30
E27-11 There are eight cubes which can be “wrapped” around the charge. Each cube has three
external faces that are indistinguishable for a total of twenty-four faces, each with the same ﬂux
ΦE . The total ﬂux is q/ 0 , so the ﬂux through one face is ΦE = q/24 0 . Note that this is the ﬂux
through faces opposite the charge; for faces which touch the charge the electric ﬁeld is parallel to
the surface, so the ﬂux would be zero.
E27-12 Use Eq. 27-11,
λ = 2π 0 rE = 2π(8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m2 )(1.96 m)(4.52×104 N/C) = 4.93×10−6 C/m.
E27-13 (a) q = σA = (2.0×10−6 C/m2 )π(0.12 m)(0.42 m) = 3.17×10−7 C.
(b) The charge density will be the same! q = σA = (2.0 × 10−6 C/m2 )π(0.08 m)(0.28 m) =
1.41×10−7 C.
E27-14 The electric ﬁeld from the sheet on the left is of magnitude E l = σ/2 0 , and points directly
away from the sheet. The magnitude of the electric ﬁeld from the sheet on the right is the same,
but it points directly away from the sheet on the right.
(a) To the left of the sheets the two ﬁelds add since they point in the same direction. This means
that the electric ﬁeld is E = −(σ/ 0 )ˆ
i.
(b) Between the sheets the two electric ﬁelds cancel, so E = 0.
(c) To the right of the sheets the two ﬁelds add since they point in the same direction. This

E27-15 The electric ﬁeld from the plate on the left is of magnitude E l = σ/2 0 , and points directly
toward the plate. The magnitude of the electric ﬁeld from the plate on the right is the same, but it
points directly away from the plate on the right.
(a) To the left of the plates the two ﬁelds cancel since they point in the opposite directions. This
means that the electric ﬁeld is E = 0.
(b) Between the plates the two electric ﬁelds add since they point in the same direction. This
means that the electric ﬁeld is E = −(σ/ 0 )ˆ
i.
(c) To the right of the plates the two ﬁelds cancel since they point in the opposite directions.
This means that the electric ﬁeld is E = 0.
E27-16 The magnitude of the electric ﬁeld is E = mg/q. The surface charge density on the plates
is σ = 0 E = 0 mg/q, or

E27-17 We don’t really need to write an integral, we just need the charge per unit length in the

indicates that the ﬁeld is pointing inward toward the axis of the cylinder.

law states
q enc
E · dA =

Since there is spherical symmetry the electric ﬁeld is normal to the spherical Gaussian surface, and
it is everywhere the same on this surface. The dot product simpliﬁes to E · dA = E dA, while since
E is a constant on the surface we can pull it out of the integral, and we end up with

where q is the point charge in the center. Now dA = 4πr2 , where r is the radius of the Gaussian
surface, so

(b) Repeat the above steps, except put the Gaussian surface outside the conducting shell. Keep
it centered on the charge. Two things are diﬀerent from the above derivation: (1) r is bigger, and
37
(2) there is an uncharged spherical conducting shell inside the Gaussian surface. Neither change will
aﬀect the surface integral or q enc , so the electric ﬁeld outside the shell is still
E=
q
,
4π 0 r2
(c) This is a subtle question. With all the symmetry here it appears as if the shell has no eﬀect;
the ﬁeld just looks like a point charge ﬁeld. If, however, the charge were moved oﬀ center the ﬁeld
inside the shell would become distorted, and we wouldn’t be able to use Gauss’ law to ﬁnd it. So
the shell does make a diﬀerence.
Outside the shell, however, we can’t tell what is going on inside the shell. So the electric ﬁeld
outside the shell looks like a point charge ﬁeld originating from the center of the shell regardless of
where inside the shell the point charge is placed!
(d) Yes, q induces surface charges on the shell. There will be a charge −q on the inside surface
and a charge q on the outside surface.
(e) Yes, as there is an electric ﬁeld from the shell, isn’t there?
(f) No, as the electric ﬁeld from the outside charge won’t make it through a conducting shell.
The conductor acts as a shield.
(g) No, this is not a contradiction, because the outside charge never experienced any electrostatic
attraction or repulsion from the inside charge. The force is between the shell and the outside charge.

The repulsive electrostatic forces must exactly balance the attractive gravitational forces.

(b) The electric ﬁeld in the hole is given by Eh = E − Eb , where E is the ﬁeld from part (a) and
Eb is the ﬁeld that would be produced by the matter that would have been in the hole had the hole
not been there. Then

P27-15 If a point is an equilibrium point then the electric ﬁeld at that point should be zero.
If it is a stable point then moving the test charge (assumed positive) a small distance from the
equilibrium point should result in a restoring force directed back toward the equilibrium point. In
other words, there will be a point where the electric ﬁeld is zero, and around this point there will be
an electric ﬁeld pointing inward. Applying Gauss’ law to a small surface surrounding our point P ,
we have a net inward ﬂux, so there must be a negative charge inside the surface. But there should
be nothing inside the surface except an empty point P , so we have a contradiction.
P27-16 (a) Follow the example on Page 618. By symmetry E = 0 along the median plane. The
charge enclosed between the median plane and a surface a distance x from the plane is q = ρAx.
Then
E = ρAx/ 0 A = ρA/ 0 .

from the plane is is q = ρAd/2, regardless of x. The
E = ρAd/2/ 0 A = ρd/2 0 .

which is basically Eq. 28-7. The separation r = 2.82 × 10−15 m.
Bringing in the third part requires work against the force of repulsion between the third charge

The diﬀerence is then VA − VB = −3850 V.

about distances, and not directions.

E28-22 q = 1.37×105 C, so

In this problem r is the radius of the Earth, so at the surface of the Earth the potential is

E28-24 Use Eq. 28-22:

(b) Does it do what we expect when d = 0? I expect it the diﬀerence to go to zero as the
two points A and B get closer together. The numerator will go to zero as d gets smaller. The
denominator, however, stays ﬁnite, which is a good thing. So yes, Va − VB → 0 as d → 0.
E28-26 (a) Since both charges are positive the electric potential from both charges will be positive.
There will be no ﬁnite points where V = 0, since two positives can’t add to zero.
(b) Between the charges the electric ﬁeld from each charge points toward the√
other, so E will

vanish when q/x2 = 2q/(d − x)2 . This happens when d − x = 2x, or x = d/(1 + 2).

E28-27 The distance from C to either charge is 2d/2 = 1.39×10−2 m.

(b) W = qδV = (1.91×10−6 C)(2.76×106 V) = 5.27 J.
(c) Don’t forget about the potential energy of the original two charges!
U0 = (8.99×109 N · m2 /C2 )
(2.13×10−6 C)2
= 2.08 J
(1.96×10−2 m)
Add this to the answer from part (b) to get 7.35 J.
E28-28 The potential is given by Eq. 28-32; at the surface V s = σR/2 0 , half of this occurs when
R2 + z 2 − z = R/2,
R2 + z 2 = R2 /4 + Rz + z 2 ,

E28-36 Draw the wires so that they are perpendicular to the plane of the page; they will then

E28-37 (a) |VB − VA | = |W/q| = |(3.94 × 10−19 J)/(1.60 × 10−19 C)| = 2.46 V. The electric ﬁeld
did work on the electron, so the electron was moving from a region of low potential to a region of
high potential; or VB > VA . Consequently, VB − VA = 2.46 V.
(b) VC is at the same potential as VB (both points are on the same equipotential line), so
VC − VA = VB − VA = 2.46 V.
(c) VC is at the same potential as VB (both points are on the same equipotential line), so
VC − VB = 0 V.
E28-38 (a) For point charges r = q/4π 0 V , so
r = (8.99×109 N · m2 /C2 )(1.5×10−8 C)/(30 V) = 4.5 m
(b) No, since V ∝ 1/r.

E28-42 Originally V = q/4π 0 r, where r is the radius of the smaller sphere.
(a) Connecting the spheres will bring them to the same potential, or V1 = V2 .
(b) q1 + q2 = q; V1 = q1 /4π 0 r and V2 = q2 /4π 0 2r; combining all of the above q2 = 2q1 and
q1 = q/3 and q2 = 2q/3.
E28-43 (a) q = 4πR2 σ, so V = q/4π 0 R = σR/ 0 , or
V = (−1.60×10−19 C/m2 )(6.37×106 m)/(8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m2 ) = 0.115 V
(b) Pretend the Earth is a conductor, then E = σ/epsilon0 , so
E = (−1.60×10−19 C/m2 )/(8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m2 ) = 1.81×10−8 V/m.
E28-44 V = q/4π 0 R, so
V = (8.99×109 N · m2 /C2 )(15×10−9 C)/(0.16 m) = 850 V.
E28-45 (a) q = 4π 0 RV = 4π(8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m2 )(0.152 m)(215 V) = 3.63×10−9 C

r = (8.99×109 N · m2 /C2 )(31.5×10−9 C)/(1.20×103 V) = 0.236 m.
That is (0.236 m) − (0.162 m) = 0.074 m above the surface.

Now that’s a fairly small charge. But if the radius were decreased by a factor of 100, so would
the charge (1.10 µC). Consequently, smaller metal balls can be raised to higher potentials with less
charge.
(b) The electric ﬁeld near the surface of the ball is a function of the surface charge density,

P28-5 The total electric potential energy of the system is the sum of the three interaction pairs.

P28-14 The spheres are small compared to the separation distance. Assuming only one sphere at
a potential of 1500 V, the charge would be
q = 4π 0 rV = 4π(8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m)(0.150 m)(1500 V) = 2.50×10−8 C.
The potential from the sphere at a distance of 10.0 m would be
V = (1500 V)
(0.150 m)
= 22.5 V.
(10.0 m)
This is small compared to 1500 V, so we will treat it as a perturbation. This means that we can
assume that the spheres have charges of
q = 4π 0 rV = 4π(8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m)(0.150 m)(1500 V + 22.5 V) = 2.54×10−8 C.
P28-15 Calculating the fraction of excess electrons is the same as calculating the fraction of
excess charge, so we’ll skip counting the electrons. This problem is eﬀectively the same as Exercise
28-47; we have a total charge that is divided between two unequal size spheres which are at the same
potential on the surface. Using the result from that exercise we have
q1 =
Qr1
,
r2 + r1
where Q = −6.2 nC is the total charge available, and q1 is the charge left on the sphere. r1 is the
radius of the small ball, r2 is the radius of Earth. Since the fraction of charge remaining is q1 /Q,
we can write

q = 4π 0 rV = 4π(8.85×10−12 C2 /N · m2 )(1.08×10−2 m)(1000 V) = 1.20×10−9 C.
The number of decays required to build up this charge is
n = 2(1.20×10−9 C)/(1.60×10−19 C) = 1.50×1010 .
The extra factor of two is because only half of the decays result in an increase in charge. The time
required is
t = (1.50×1010 )/(3.70×108 s−1 ) = 40.6 s.

P28-18 (a) Outside of an isolated charged spherical object E = q/4π 0 r2 and V = q/4π 0 r.
Then E = V /r. Consequently, the sphere must have a radius larger than r = (9.15×106 V)/(100×
106 V/m) = 9.15×10−2 m.
(b) The power required is (320×10−6 C/s)(9.15×106 V) = 2930 W.

as the charge which passes through a cross section of this resistor.
(b) The number of electrons is given by (1330 C)/(1.60 × 10−19 C) = 8.31 × 1021 electrons.
E29-2 Q/t = (200×10−6 A/s)(60s/min)/(1.60×10−19 C) = 7.5×1016 electrons per minute.

have positive charge then the current density is in the same direction as the velocity.
(b) We need an area to calculate the current.
E29-4 (a) j = i/A = (123×10−12 A)/π(1.23×10−3 m)2 = 2.59×10−5 A/m2 .

E29-8 (a) The total current is
i = (3.50×1015 /s + 2.25×1015 /s)(1.60×10−19 C) = 9.20×10−4 A.

(c) The drift speed is v = j/en = i/Aen, so
v = (12 A)/π(2.6×10−3 m)2 (1.6×10−19 C)(8.49×1028 /m3 ) = 4.16×10−5 m/s.
The electrons will move 1 cm in (1.0×10−2 m)/(4.16×10−5 m/s) = 240 s.

(b) The speed of the particles in the beam is given by v = 2K/m, so
v=
2(22.4 MeV)/4(932 MeV/c2 ) = 0.110c.
It takes (0.180 m)/(0.110)(3.00×108 m/s) = 5.45×10−9 s for the beam to travel 18.0 cm. The number
of charges is then
N = it/q = (250×10−9 A)(5.45×10−9 s)/(3.2×10−19 C) = 4260.

(b) The number of charges is N = q/e, the total energy absorbed by the block is then
∆U = (28.0×109 eV)(9.50×10−5 C)/e = 2.66×106 J.

The resistance when on is (2.90 V)/(0.310 A) = 9.35 Ω. The temperature is given by
T = 20◦ C + (9.35 Ω − 1.12 Ω)/(1.12 Ω)(4.5×10−3 /◦ C) = 1650◦ C.
P29-9 Originally we have a resistance R1 made out of a wire of length l1 and cross sectional area
A1 . The volume of this wire is V1 = A1 l1 . When the wire is drawn out to the new length we have
l2 = 3l1 , but the volume of the wire should be constant so

We will use the results of Exercise 29-17,
R − R0 = R0 αav (T − T0 ).
To save on subscripts we will drop the “av” notation, and just specify whether it is carbon “c” or
iron “i”.
The disks will be eﬀectively in series, so we will add the resistances to get the total. Looking
only at one disk pair, we have

= R0,c + R0,i + (R0,c αc + R0,i αi ) (T − T0 ).
This last equation will only be constant if the coeﬃcient for the term (T − T0 ) vanishes. Then
R0,c αc + R0,i αi = 0,
but R = ρL/A, and the disks have the same cross sectional area, so

This is the equivalent capacitance for the entire arrangement.
E30-12 For one capacitor q = C∆V = (25.0×10−6 F)(4200 V) = 0.105 C. There are three capacitors, so the total charge to pass through the ammeter is 0.315 C.

series capacitors, the charge on the equivalent capacitor is the same as the charge on each of the
capacitors. This statement is wrong in the Student Solutions!
(c) The potential diﬀerence across the equivalent capacitor is not the same as the potential
diﬀerence across each of the individual capacitors. We need to apply q = C∆V to each capacitor

E30-16 (a) The maximum potential across any individual capacitor is 200 V; so there must be
at least (1000 V)/(200 V) = 5 series capacitors in any parallel branch. This branch would have an
equivalent capacitance of C eq = C/5 = (2.0×10−6 F)/5 = 0.40×10−6 F.
(b) For parallel branches we add, which means we need (1.2×10−6 F)/(0.40×10−6 F) = 3 parallel
branches of the combination found in part (a).
E30-17 Look back at the solution to Ex. 30-10. If C3 breaks down electrically then the circuit is
eﬀectively two capacitors in parallel.
(b) ∆V = 115 V after the breakdown.
(a) q1 = (10.3×10−6 F)(115 V) = 1.18×10−3 C.
E30-18 The 108µF capacitor originally has a charge of q = (108×10−6 F)(52.4 V) = 5.66×10−3 C.
After it is connected to the second capacitor the 108µF capacitor has a charge of q = (108 ×
10−6 F)(35.8 V) = 3.87×10−3 C. The diﬀerence in charge must reside on the second capacitor, so the
capacitance is C = (1.79×10−3 C)/(35.8 V) = 5.00×10−5 F.
E30-19 Consider any junction other than A or B. Call this junction point 0; label the four nearest
junctions to this as points 1, 2, 3, and 4. The charge on the capacitor that links point 0 to point 1 is
q1 = C∆V01 , where ∆V01 is the potential diﬀerence across the capacitor, so ∆V01 = V0 − V1 , where
V0 is the potential at the junction 0, and V1 is the potential at the junction 1. Similar expressions
exist for the other three capacitors.
For the junction 0 the net charge must be zero; there is no way for charge to cross the plates of
the capacitors. Then q1 + q2 + q3 + q4 = 0, and this means
C∆V01 + C∆V02 + C∆V03 + C∆V04 = 0
or
∆V01 + ∆V02 + ∆V03 + ∆V04 = 0.
Let ∆V0i = V0 − Vi , and then rearrange,

10−6 F) = 89.0 V.
The potential across the parallel segment is then (112 V) − (89.0 V) = 23.0 V. So [∆V ]1 =
[∆V ]2 = 23.0 V.
Then q1 = (10.3×10−6 F)(23.0 V) = 2.37×10−4 C and q2 = (4.80×10−6 F)(23.0 V) = 1.10×10−4 C..

C = 2π(8.85×10−12 F/m)(2.6)
1.0×103 m
= 8.63×10−8 F.
ln(0.588/0.11)
E30-34 (a) U = C (∆V )2 /2, C = κe 0 A/d, and ∆V /d is less than or equal to the dielectric
strength (which we will call S). Then ∆V = Sd and
U=

κe 0 AdS 2 ,

so the volume is given by
V = 2U/κe 0 S 2 .
This quantity is a minimum for mica, so
V = 2(250×103 J)/(5.4)(8.85×10−12 F/m)(160×106 V/m)2 = 0.41 m3 .

κe = 2(250×103 J)/(0.087m3 )(8.85×10−12 F/m)(160×106 V/m)2 = 25.

ln(b/a)
The factor of κe is introduced because there is now a dielectric (the Pyrex drinking glass) between
the plates. We can look back to Table 29-2 to get the dielectric properties of Pyrex. The capacitance
of our “glass” is then
C = 2π(8.85×10−12 F/m)(4.7)
(0.15 m)

E30-37 (a) Insert the slab so that it is a distance a above the lower plate. Then the distance
between the slab and the upper plate is d − a − b. Inserting the slab has the same eﬀect as having
two capacitors wired in series; the separation of the bottom capacitor is a, while that of the top
capacitor is d − a − b.
The bottom capacitor has a capacitance of C1 = 0 A/a, while the top capacitor has a capacitance
of C2 = 0 A/(d − a − b). Adding these in series,

The capacitance of the cylindrical capacitor is from Eq. 30-11,
C=
2π 0 L

ln(b/a)
If the cylinders are very close together we can write b = a + d, where d, the separation between the
cylinders, is a small number, so
C=

ln ((a + d)/a)
ln (1 + d/a)
Expanding according to the hint,
C≈
2π 0 L
2πa 0 L
=
d/a
d
Now 2πa is the circumference of the cylinder, and L is the length, so 2πaL is the area of a cylindrical
plate. Hence, for small separation between the cylinders we have
C≈
which is the expression for the parallel plates.

αs = 2αa = 2(23×10−6 /C◦ ) = 46×10−6 /C◦ .
P30-3 Insert the slab so that it is a distance d above the lower plate. Then the distance between
the slab and the upper plate is a−b−d. Inserting the slab has the same eﬀect as having two capacitors
wired in series; the separation of the bottom capacitor is d, while that of the top capacitor is a−b−d.
The bottom capacitor has a capacitance of C1 = 0 A/d, while the top capacitor has a capacitance
of C2 = 0 A/(a − b − d). Adding these in series,

So the capacitance of the system after putting the slab in is C =

P30-4 The potential diﬀerence between any two adjacent plates is ∆V . Each interior plate has a
charge q on each surface; the exterior plate (one pink, one gray) has a charge of q on the interior
surface only.
The capacitance of one pink/gray plate pair is C = 0 A/d. There are n plates, but only n − 1
plate pairs, so the total charge is (n − 1)q. This means the total capacitance is C = 0 (n − 1)A/d.
P30-5 Let ∆V0 = 96.6 V.
As far as point e is concerned point a looks like it is originally positively charged, and point d is
originally negatively charged. It is then convenient to deﬁne the charges on the capacitors in terms
of the charges on the top sides, so the original charge on C1 is q 1,i = C1 ∆V0 while the original charge
on C2 is q 2,i = −C2 ∆V0 . Note the negative sign reﬂecting the opposite polarity of C2 .
(a) Conservation of charge requires
q 1,i + q 2,i = q 1,f + q 2,f ,
but since q = C∆V and the two capacitors will be at the same potential after the switches are closed
we can write
C1 ∆V0 − C2 ∆V0 = C1 ∆V + C2 ∆V,
(C1 − C2 ) ∆V0 = (C1 + C2 ) ∆V,
C1 − C2
∆V0 = ∆V.
C1 + C2
With numbers,
∆V = (96.6 V)
(1.16 µF) − (3.22 µF)
= −45.4 V.
(1.16 µF) + (3.22 µF)
76
The negative sign means that the top sides of both capacitor will be negatively charged after the
switches are closed.
(b) The charge on C1 is C1 ∆V = (1.16 µF)(45.4 V) = 52.7µC.
(c) The charge on C2 is C2 ∆V = (3.22 µF)(45.4 V) = 146µC.
P30-6 C2 and C3 form an eﬀective capacitor with equivalent capacitance Ca = C2 C3 /(C2 + C3 ).
The charge on C1 is originally q0 = C1 ∆V0 . After throwing the switch the potential across C1
is given by q1 = C1 ∆V1 . The same potential is across Ca ; q2 = q3 , so q2 = Ca ∆V1 . Charge is
conserved, so q1 + q2 = q0 . Combining some of the above,
∆V1 =

P30-7 (a) If terminal a is more positive than terminal b then current can ﬂow that will charge the
capacitor on the left, the current can ﬂow through the diode on the top, and the current can charge
the capacitor on the right. Current will not ﬂow through the diode on the left. The capacitors are
eﬀectively in series.
Since the capacitors are identical and series capacitors have the same charge, we expect the
capacitors to have the same potential diﬀerence across them. But the total potential diﬀerence
across both capacitors is equal to 100 V, so the potential diﬀerence across either capacitor is 50 V.
The output pins are connected to the capacitor on the right, so the potential diﬀerence across
the output is 50 V.
(b) If terminal b is more positive than terminal a the current can ﬂow through the diode on the
left. If we assume the diode is resistanceless in this conﬁguration then the potential diﬀerence across
it will be zero. The net result is that the potential diﬀerence across the output pins is 0 V.
In real life the potential diﬀerence across the diode would not be zero, even if forward biased. It
will be somewhere around 0.5 Volts.

the top part is
∆V t = (2.52×10−5 C)/(3.0×10−6 F) = 8.4 V,
and then the charge on the top two capacitors is q1 = (1.0 × 10−6 F)(8.4 V) = 8.4 × 10−6 C and
q2 = (2.0×10−6 F)(8.4 V) = 1.68×10−5 C. The potential diﬀerence across the bottom part is
∆V t = (2.52×10−5 C)/(7.0×10−6 F) = 3.6 V,
and then the charge on the top two capacitors is q1 = (3.0 × 10−6 F)(3.6 V) = 1.08 × 10−5 C and
q2 = (4.0×10−6 F)(3.6 V) = 1.44×10−5 C.
P30-10 Let ∆V = ∆Vxy . By symmetry ∆V2 = 0 and ∆V1 = ∆V4 = ∆V5 = ∆V3 = ∆V /2.

But there are two capacitors, so the total energy stored is 2U = U0 /2 = 2.0 J.
(b) Good question. Current had to ﬂow through the connecting wires to get the charge from one
capacitor to the other. Originally the second capacitor was uncharged, so the potential diﬀerence
across that capacitor would have been zero, which means the potential diﬀerence across the connecting wires would have been equal to that of the ﬁrst capacitor, and there would then have been
energy dissipation in the wires according to
P = i2 R.
That’s where the missing energy went.

P30-16 A small surface area element dA carries a charge dq = q dA/4πR2 . There are three forces
on the elements which balance, so
p(V0 /V )dA + q dq/4π 0 R2 = p dA,
or
3
pR0 + q 2 /16π 2 0 R = pR3 .
This can be rearranged as

q 2 = 16π 2 0 pR(R3 − R0 ).
P30-17 The magnitude of the electric ﬁeld in the cylindrical region is given by E = λ/2π 0 r,
where λ is the linear charge density on the anode. The potential diﬀerence is given by ∆V =
(λ/2π 0 ) ln(b/a), where a is the radius of the anode b the radius of the cathode. Combining, E =
∆V /r ln(b/a), this will be a maximum when r = a, so
∆V = (0.180×10−3 m) ln[(11.0×10−3 m)/(0.180×10−3 m)](2.20×106 V/m) = 1630 V.

E31-5 Go all of the way around the circuit. It is a simple one loop circuit, and although it does
not matter which way we go around, we will follow the direction of the larger emf. Then
(150 V) − i(2.0 Ω) − (50 V) − i(3.0 Ω) = 0,
where i is positive if it is counterclockwise. Rearranging,
100 V = i(5.0 Ω),
or i = 20 A.
Assuming the potential at P is VP = 100 V, then the potential at Q will be given by
VQ = VP − (50 V) − i(3.0 Ω) = (100 V) − (50 V) − (20 A)(3.0 Ω) = −10 V.
E31-6 (a) Req = (10 Ω) + (140 Ω) = 150 Ω. i = (12.0 V)/(150 Ω) = 0.080 A.
(b) Req = (10 Ω) + (80 Ω) = 90 Ω. i = (12.0 V)/(90 Ω) = 0.133 A.
(c) Req = (10 Ω) + (20 Ω) = 30 Ω. i = (12.0 V)/(30 Ω) = 0.400 A.
E31-7 (a) Req = (3.0 V − 2.0 V)/(0.050 A) = 20 Ω. Then R = (20 Ω) − (3.0 Ω) − (3.0 Ω) = 14 Ω.
(b) P = i∆V = i2 R = (0.050 A)2 (14 Ω) = 3.5×10−2 W.
E31-8 (5.0 A)R1 = ∆V . (4.0 A)(R1 +2.0 Ω) = ∆V . Combining, 5R1 = 4R1 +8.0 Ω, or R1 = 8.0 Ω.
E31-9 (a) (53.0 W)/(1.20 A) = 44.2 V.
(b) (1.20 A)(19.0 Ω) = 22.8 V is the potential diﬀerence across R. Then an additional potential
diﬀerence of (44.2 V) − (22.8 V) = 21.4 V must exist across C.
(c) The left side is positive; it is a reverse emf.
E31-10 (a) The current in the resistor is (9.88 W)/(0.108 Ω) = 9.56 A. The total resistance of
the circuit is (1.50 V)/(9.56 A) = 0.157 Ω. The internal resistance of the battery is then (0.157 Ω) −
(0.108 Ω) = 0.049 Ω.
(b) (9.88 W)/(9.56 A) = 1.03 V.

We assign directions to the currents through the four resistors as shown in the ﬁgure.

2

Since the ammeter has no resistance the potential at a is the same as the potential at b. Consequently the potential diﬀerence (∆V b ) across both of the bottom resistors is the same, and the
potential diﬀerence (∆V t ) across the two top resistors is also the same (but diﬀerent from the
bottom). We then have the following relationships:
∆V t + ∆V b
i1 + i2
∆Vj
= E,
= i3 + i4 ,
= i j Rj ,
where the j subscript in the last line refers to resistor 1, 2, 3, or 4.
For the top resistors,
∆V1 = ∆V2 implies 2i1 = i2 ;
while for the bottom resistors,
∆V3 = ∆V4 implies i3 = i4 .
Then the junction rule requires i4 = 3i1 /2, and the loop rule requires
(i1 )(2R) + (3i1 /2)(R) = E or i1 = 2E/(7R).
The current that ﬂows through the ammeter is the diﬀerence between i2 and i4 , or 4E/(7R) −
3E/(7R) = E/(7R).
E31-12 (a) Deﬁne the current i1 as moving to the left through r1 and the current i2 as moving
to the left through r2 . i3 = i1 + i2 is moving to the right through R. Then there are two loop
equations:
E1
E2
= i1 r1 + i3 R,
= (i3 − i1 )r2 + i3 R.
Multiply the top equation by r2 and the bottom by r1 and then add:
r2 E1 + r1 E2 = i3 r1 r2 + i3 R(r1 + r2 ),
which can be rearranged as
i3 =
r2 E1 + r1 E2
.
r1 r2 + Rr1 + Rr2
(b) There is only one current, so
E1 + E2 = i(r1 + r2 + R),
or
i=
E1 + E2
.
r1 + r 2 + R
83
E31-13 (a) Assume that the current ﬂows through each source of emf in the same direction as
the emf. The the loop rule will give us three equations
E1 − i1 R1 + i2 R2 − E2 − i1 R1
E2 − i2 R2 + i3 R1 − E3 + i3 R1
E1 − i1 R1 + i3 R1 − E3 + i3 R1 − i1 R1
= 0,
= 0,
= 0.
The junction rule (looks at point a) gives us i1 + i2 + i3 = 0. Use this to eliminate i2 from the second
loop equation,
E2 + i1 R2 + i3 R2 + 2i3 R1 − E3 = 0,
and then combine this with the the third equation to eliminate i3 ,
2
E1 R2 − E3 R2 + 2i3 R1 R2 + 2E2 R1 + 2i3 R1 R2 + 4i3 R1 − 2E3 R1 = 0,
or
i3 =
2E3 R1 + E3 R2 − E1 R2 − 2E2 R1
= 0.582 A.
2
4R1 R2 + 4R1
Then we can ﬁnd i1 from
i1 =
E3 − E2 − i3 R2 − 2i3 R1
= −0.668 A,
R2
where the negative sign indicates the current is down.
Finally, we can ﬁnd i2 = −(i1 + i3 ) = 0.0854 A.
(b) Start at a and go to b (ﬁnal minus initial!),
+i2 R2 − E2 = −3.60 V.
E31-14 (a) The current through the circuit is i = E/(r + R). The power delivered to R is then
P = i∆V = i2 R = E 2 R/(r + R)2 . Evaluate dP/dR and set it equal to zero to ﬁnd the maximum.
Then

E31-15 (a) We ﬁrst use P = F v to ﬁnd the power output by the electric motor. Then P =
(2.0 N)(0.50 m/s) = 1.0 W.
The potential diﬀerence across the motor is ∆V m = E − ir. The power output from the motor is
the rate of energy dissipation, so P m = ∆V m i. Combining these two expressions,
= (E − ir) i,
= Ei − i2 r,
0 = −i2 r + Ei − P m ,
0 = (0.50 Ω)i2 − (2.0 V)i + (1.0 W).
Pm
Rearrange and solve for i,
i=
(2.0 V) ±
(2.0 V)2 − 4(0.50 Ω)(1.0 W)
,
2(0.50 Ω)
84
which has solutions i = 3.4 A and i = 0.59 A.
(b) The potential diﬀerence across the terminals of the motor is ∆V m = E − ir which if i = 3.4 A
yields ∆V m = 0.3 V, but if i = 0.59 A yields ∆V m = 1.7 V. The battery provides an emf of 2.0 V; it
isn’t possible for the potential diﬀerence across the motor to be larger than this, but both solutions
seem to satisfy this constraint, so we will move to the next part and see what happens.
(c) So what is the signiﬁcance of the two possible solutions? It is a consequence of the fact that
power is related to the current squared, and with any quadratics we expect two solutions. Both
are possible, but it might be that only one is stable, or even that neither is stable, and a small
perturbation to the friction involved in turning the motor will cause the system to break down. We
will learn in a later chapter that the eﬀective resistance of an electric motor depends on the speed
at which it is spinning, and although that won’t aﬀect the problem here as worded, it will aﬀect the
physical problem that provided the numbers in this problem!
E31-16 req = 4r = 4(18 Ω) = 72 Ω. The current is i = (27 V)/(72 Ω) = 0.375 A.
E31-17 In parallel connections of two resistors the eﬀective resistance is less than the smaller
resistance but larger than half the smaller resistance. In series connections of two resistors the
eﬀective resistance is greater than the larger resistance but less than twice the larger resistance.
Since the eﬀective resistance of the parallel combination is less than either single resistance
and the eﬀective resistance of the series combinations is larger than either single resistance we can
conclude that 3.0 Ω must have been the parallel combination and 16 Ω must have been the series
combination.
The resistors are then 4.0 Ω and 12 Ω resistors.
E31-18 Points B and C are eﬀectively the same point!
(a) The three resistors are in parallel. Then req = R/3.
(b) See (a).
(c) 0, since there is no resistance between B and C.
E31-19 Focus on the loop through the battery, the 3.0 Ω, and the 5.0 Ω resistors. The loop rule
yields
(12.0 V) = i[(3.0 Ω) + (5.0 Ω)] = i(8.0 Ω).
The potential diﬀerence across the 5.0 Ω resistor is then
∆V = i(5.0 Ω) = (5.0 Ω)(12.0 V)/(8.0 Ω) = 7.5 V.
E31-20 Each lamp draws a current of (500 W)/(120 V) = 4.17 A. Furthermore, the fuse can
support (15 A)/(4.17 A) = 3.60 lamps. That is a maximum of 3.
E31-21 The current in the series combination is is = E/(R1 + R2 ). The power dissipated is
P s = iE = E 2 /(R1 + R2 ).
In a parallel arrangement R1 dissipates P1 = i1 E = E 2 /R1 . A similar expression exists for R2 ,
so the total power dissipated is P p = E 2 (1/R1 + 1/R2 ).
The ratio is 5, so 5 = P p /P s = (1/R1 + 1/R2 )(R1 + R2 ), or 5R1 R2 = (R1 + R2 )2 . Solving for
R2 yields 2.618R1 or 0.382R1 . Then R2 = 262 Ω or R2 = 38.2 Ω.
85
E31-22 Combining n identical resistors in series results in an equivalent resistance of req = nR.
Combining n identical resistors in parallel results in an equivalent resistance of req = R/n. If the
resistors are arranged in a square array consisting of n parallel branches of n series resistors, then
the eﬀective resistance is R. Each will dissipate a power P , together they will dissipate n2 P .
So we want nine resistors, since four would be too small.
E31-23

(a) Work through the circuit one step at a time. We ﬁrst “add” R2 , R3 , and R4 in

Reﬀ
42.0 Ω 61.6 Ω 75.0 Ω
18.7 Ω
We then “add” this resistance in series with R1 ,
Reﬀ = (112 Ω) + (18.7 Ω) = 131 Ω.
(b) The current through the battery is i = E/R = (6.22 V)/(131 Ω) = 47.5 mA. This is also the
current through R1 , since all the current through the battery must also go through R1 .
The potential diﬀerence across R1 is ∆V1 = (47.5 mA)(112 Ω) = 5.32 V. The potential diﬀerence
across each of the three remaining resistors is 6.22 V − 5.32 V = 0.90 V.
The current through each resistor is then
i2

i4
= (0.90 V)/(42.0 Ω) = 21.4 mA,
= (0.90 V)/(61.6 Ω) = 14.6 mA,
= (0.90 V)/(75.0 Ω) = 12.0 mA.
E31-24 The equivalent resistance of the parallel part is r = R2 R/(R2 + R). The equivalent
resistance for the circuit is r = R1 + R2 R/(R2 + R). The current through the circuit is i = E/r.
The potential diﬀerence across R is ∆V = E − i R1 , or

Set dP/dR = 0, the solution is R = R1 R2 /(R1 + R2 ).
E31-25 (a) First “add” the left two resistors in series; the eﬀective resistance of that branch is
2R. Then “add” the right two resistors in series; the eﬀective resistance of that branch is also 2R.

E31-26 The resistance of the second resistor is r2 = (2.4 V)/(0.001 A) = 2400 Ω. The potential
diﬀerence across the ﬁrst resistor is (12 V) − (2.4 V) = 9.6 V. The resistance of the ﬁrst resistor is
(9.6 V)/(0.001 A) = 9600 Ω.

The allowed range for the ratio r2 /r1 is between 0.5625 and 0.5957.
We can choose any standard resistors we want, and we could use any tolerance, but then we
will need to check our results. 22Ω and 39Ω would work; as would 27Ω and 47Ω. There are other
choices.
E31-28 Consider any junction other than A or B. Call this junction point 0; label the four
nearest junctions to this as points 1, 2, 3, and 4. The current through the resistor that links
point 0 to point 1 is i1 = ∆V01 /R, where ∆V01 is the potential diﬀerence across the resistor, so
∆V01 = V0 − V1 , where V0 is the potential at the junction 0, and V1 is the potential at the junction
1. Similar expressions exist for the other three resistor.
For the junction 0 the net current must be zero; there is no way for charge to accumulate on the
junction. Then i1 + i2 + i3 + i4 = 0, and this means
∆V01 /R + ∆V02 /R + ∆V03 /R + ∆V04 /R = 0
or
∆V01 + ∆V02 + ∆V03 + ∆V04 = 0.
Let ∆V0i = V0 − Vi , and then rearrange,
4V0 = V1 + V2 + V3 + V4 ,
or
V0 =
1
(V1 + V2 + V3 + V4 ) .

E31-29 The current through the radio is i = P/∆V = (7.5 W)/(9.0 V) = 0.83 A. The radio
was left one for 6 hours, or 2.16×104 s. The total charge to ﬂow through the radio in that time is
(0.83 A)(2.16×104 s) = 1.8×104 C.
E31-30 The power dissipated by the headlights is (9.7 A)(12.0 V) = 116 W. The power required
by the engine is (116 W)/(0.82) = 142 W, which is equivalent to 0.190 hp.

We want to apply either Eq. 31-21,
PR = i2 R,
or Eq. 31-22,
PR = (∆VR )2 /R,
depending on whether we are in series (the current is the same through each bulb), or in parallel
(the potential diﬀerence across each bulb is the same. The brightness of a bulb will be measured by
P , even though P is not necessarily a measure of the rate radiant energy is emitted from the bulb.
(b) If the bulbs are in parallel then PR = (∆VR )2 /R is how we want to compare the brightness.
The potential diﬀerence across each bulb is the same, so the bulb with the smaller resistance is
brighter.
(b) If the bulbs are in series then PR = i2 R is how we want to compare the brightness. Both
bulbs have the same current, so the larger value of R results in the brighter bulb.
One direct consequence of this can be tried at home. Wire up a 60 W, 120 V bulb and a 100 W,
120 V bulb in series. Which is brighter? You should observe that the 60 W bulb will be brighter.

Traversing the circuit we have
E − ir1 + E − ir2 − iR = 0,

r 1 + r2 + R

r2 − r 1 + R
r1 + r 2 + R
This quantity will only vanish if r2 − r1 + R = 0, or r1 = R + r2 . Since r1 > r2 this is actually
possible; R = r1 − r2 .
P31-3
∆V = E − iri and i = E/(ri + R), so
∆V = E

There are then two simultaneous equations:
(0.10 V)(500 Ω) + (0.10 V)ri = E(500 Ω)
and
(0.16 V)(1000 Ω) + (0.16 V)ri = E(1000 Ω),

(a) The emf of the battery can be found from
E = iri + ∆V l = (10 A)(0.05 Ω) + (12 V) = 12.5 V
(b) Assume that resistance is not a function of temperature. The resistance of the headlights is
then
rl = (12.0 V)/(10.0 A) = 1.2 Ω.
The potential diﬀerence across the lights when the starter motor is on is
∆V l = (8.0 A)(1.2 Ω) = 9.6 V,
and this is also the potential diﬀerence across the terminals of the battery. The current through the
battery is then
E − ∆V
(12.5 V) − (9.6 V)
i=

so the current through the motor is 50 Amps.

ρA = rA A/L = (76.2×10−6 Ω)(91.0×10−4 m2 )/(42.6 m) = 1.63×10−8 Ω · m,
and
ρB = rB A/L = (35.0×10−6 Ω)(91.0×10−4 m2 )/(42.6 m) = 7.48×10−9 Ω · m.
(b) The current is i = ∆V /(rA + rB ) = (630 V)/(111.2 µΩ) = 5.67×106 A. The current density
is then
j = (5.67×106 A)/(91.0×10−4 m2 ) = 6.23×108 A/m2 .
(c) EA = ρA j = (1.63×10−8 Ω · m)(6.23×108 A/m2 ) = 10.2 V/m and EB = ρB j = (7.48×10−9 Ω ·

P31-6 Set up the problem with the traditional presentation of the Wheatstone bridge problem.
Then the symmetry of the problem (ﬂip it over on the line between x and y) implies that there is no
current through r. As such, the problem is equivalent to two identical parallel branches each with
two identical series resistances.
Each branch has resistance R + R = 2R, so the overall circuit has resistance

P31-8 (a) The loop through R1 is trivial: i1 = E2 /R1 = (5.0 V)/(100 Ω) = 0.05 A. The loop
through R2 is only slightly harder: i2 = (E2 + E3 − E1 )/R2 = 0.06 A.
(b) ∆Vab = E3 + E2 = (5.0 V) + (4.0 V) = 9.0 V.
P31-9 (a) The three way light-bulb has two ﬁlaments (or so we are told in the question). There
are four ways for these two ﬁlaments to be wired: either one alone, both in series, or both in
parallel. Wiring the ﬁlaments in series will have the largest total resistance, and since P = V 2 /R
this arrangement would result in the dimmest light. But we are told the light still operates at the
lowest setting, and if a ﬁlament burned out in a series arrangement the light would go out.
We then conclude that the lowest setting is one ﬁlament, the middle setting is another ﬁlament,
and the brightest setting is both ﬁlaments in parallel.
(b) The beauty of parallel settings is that then power is additive (it is also addictive, but that’s
a diﬀerent ﬁeld.) One ﬁlament dissipates 100 W at 120 V; the other ﬁlament (the one that burns
out) dissipates 200 W at 120 V, and both together dissipate 300 W at 120 V.
The resistance of one ﬁlament is then

P31-10 We can assume that R “contains” all of the resistance of the resistor, the battery and the
ammeter, then
R = (1.50 V)/(1.0 m/A) = 1500 Ω.
For each of the following parts we apply R + r = ∆V /i, so
(a) r = (1.5 V)/(0.1 mA) − (1500 Ω) = 1.35×104 Ω,
(b) r = (1.5 V)/(0.5 mA) − (1500 Ω) = 1.5×103 Ω,
(c) r = (1.5 V)/(0.9 mA) − (1500 Ω) = 167Ω.
(d) R = (1500 Ω) − (18.5 Ω) = 1482 Ω

The potential diﬀerence across R1 is then

while ∆V3 = E − ∆V1 , or

∆V1 + ∆V2 = ∆VS + ∆VX ; if Va = Vb , then ∆V1 = ∆VS . Using the ﬁrst expression,
ia (R1 + R2 ) = ib (RS + RX ),
using the second,

Dividing the ﬁrst by the second,

We don’t really care what happened with the potential diﬀerence, since knowing the change in
resistance of the wire should give all the information we need.
The volume of the wire is a constant, even upon drawing the wire out, so LA = L0 A0 ; the
product of the length and the cross sectional area must be a constant.
Resistance is given by R = ρL/A, but A = L0 A0 /L, so the length of the wire is

All of the paths which involve left hand turns are positive particles (path 1); those paths which

The gravitational force on the proton is
mg = (1.7×10−27 kg)(9.8 m/s2 ) = 1.7×10−26 N.
The ratio is then 7.6×109 . If, however, you carry the number of signiﬁcant digits for the intermediate

so the true mass of the particle is (9.43×10−27 kg)/(1.42) = 6.64×10−27 kg. The number of nucleons
present in this particle is then (6.64×10−27 kg)/(1.67×10−27 kg) = 3.97 ≈ 4. The charge was +2,
which implies two protons, the other two nucleons would be neutrons, so this must be an alpha

Use of an appropriate right hand rule will indicate that the current must be directed to the right
in order to have a magnetic force directed upward.
E32-30 F = iLB sin θ = (5.12 × 103 A)(100 m)(58 × 10−6 T) sin(70◦ ) = 27.9 N. The direction is
horizontally west.
E32-31 (a) We use Eq. 32-26 again, and since the (horizontal) axle is perpendicular to the
vertical component of the magnetic ﬁeld,

(c) If such a train were to be developed the rails would melt well before the train left the station.

E32-32 F = idB, so a = F/m = idB/m. Since a is constant, v = at = idBt/m. The direction is

E32-34 The magnetic force will have two components: one will lift vertically (Fy = F sin α), the
other push horizontally (Fx = F cos α). The rod will move when Fx > µ(W − Fy ). We are interested
in the minimum value for F as a function of α. This occurs when

This happens when µ = tan α. Then α = arctan(0.58) = 30◦ , and
F =
(0.58)(1.15 kg)(9.81 m/s2 )
= 5.66 N
cos(30◦ ) + (0.58) sin(30◦ )
is the minimum force. Then B = (5.66 N)/(53.2 A)(0.95 m) = 0.112 T.
E32-35 We choose that the ﬁeld points from the shorter side to the longer side.
(a) The magnetic ﬁeld is parallel to the 130 cm side so there is no magnetic force on that side.
The magnetic force on the 50 cm side has magnitude
FB = iLB sin θ,
where θ is the angle between the 50 cm side and the magnetic ﬁeld. This angle is larger than 90◦ ,
but the sine can be found directly from the triangle,
sin θ =
(120 cm)
= 0.923,
(130 cm)
and then the force on the 50 cm side can be found by
FB = (4.00 A)(0.50 m)(75.0×10−3 T)
(120 cm)
= 0.138 N,
(130 cm)
and is directed out of the plane of the triangle.
The magnetic force on the 120 cm side has magnitude
FB = iLB sin θ,
where θ is the angle between the 1200 cm side and the magnetic ﬁeld. This angle is larger than
180◦ , but the sine can be found directly from the triangle,
sin θ =
(−50 cm)
= −0.385,
(130 cm)
and then the force on the 50 cm side can be found by
FB = (4.00 A)(1.20 m)(75.0×10−3 T)
and is directed into the plane of the triangle.
(b) Look at the three numbers above.

E32-36 τ = N iAB sin θ, so
τ = (20)(0.1 A)(0.12 m)(0.05 m)(0.5 T) sin(90◦ − 33◦ ) = 5.0×10−3 N · m.
E32-37 The external magnetic ﬁeld must be in the plane of the clock/wire loop. The clockwise
current produces a magnetic dipole moment directed into the plane of the clock.
(a) Since the magnetic ﬁeld points along the 1 pm line and the torque is perpendicular to both
the external ﬁeld and the dipole, then the torque must point along either the 4 pm or the 10 pm line.
Applying Eq. 32-35, the direction is along the 4 pm line. It will take the minute hand 20 minutes
to get there.
(b) τ = (6)(2.0 A)π(0.15 m)2 (0.07 T) = 0.059 N · m.

P32-1 Since F must be perpendicular to B then B must be along k. The magnitude of v is

But since there is no acceleration in the ˆ or k direction this must be oﬀset by the electric ﬁeld.
j
Consequently, two of the electric ﬁeld components are Ey = −6.00 V/m and Ez = 4.80 V/m. The
third component of the electric ﬁeld is the source of the acceleration, so
Ex = max /q = (9.11×10−31 kg)(2.00×1012 m/s2 )/(−1.60×10−19 C) = −11.4 V/m.
P32-3 (a) Consider ﬁrst the cross product, v × B. The electron moves horizontally, there is a
component of the B which is down, so the cross product results in a vector which points to the left
of the electron’s path.
But the force on the electron is given by F = qv × B, and since the electron has a negative charge
the force on the electron would be directed to the right of the electron’s path.
(b) The kinetic energy of the electrons is much less than the rest mass energy, so this is nonrelativistic motion. The speed of the electron is then v = 2K/m, and the magnetic force on the
electron is FB = qvB, where we are assuming sin θ = 1 because the electron moves horizontally
through a magnetic ﬁeld with a vertical component. We can ignore the eﬀect of the magnetic ﬁeld’s
horizontal component because the electron is moving parallel to this component.
The acceleration of the electron because of the magnetic force is then

P32-6 The ions are given a kinetic energy K = q∆V ; they are then deﬂected with a radius of

v=
2K/m =
2(22.5 eV)(1.60×10−19 J/eV)/(9.11×10−31 kg) = 2.81×106 m/s.
The velocity can written in terms of components which are parallel and perpendicular to the magnetic
ﬁeld. Then
v|| = v cos θ and v⊥ = v sin θ.
The pitch is the parallel distance traveled by the electron in one revolution, so
p = v|| T = (2.81×106 m/s) cos(65.5◦ )(7.86×10−8 s) = 9.16 cm.
(c) The radius of the helical path is given by Eq. 32-10, except that we use the perpendicular

P32-17 The torque on a current carrying loop depends on the orientation of the loop; the
maximum torque occurs when the plane of the loop is parallel to the magnetic ﬁeld. In this case the
magnitude of the torque is from Eq. 32-34 with sin θ = 1—
τ = N iAB.
The area of a circular loop is A = πr2 where r is the radius, but since the circumference is C = 2πr,
we can write
C2
A=

The circumference is not the length of the wire, because there may be more than one turn. Instead,
C = L/N , where N is the number of turns.

P32-18 dF = i dL × B; the direction of dF will be upward and somewhat toward the center. L

and we are interested is a distance r = d. The electric ﬁeld at that distance is
E=

4π 0 r2
where in both of the above expressions q is the charge of the source proton.
On the receiving end is the other proton, and the force on that proton is given by
F = q(E + v × B).
The velocity is the same as that of the ﬁrst proton (otherwise they wouldn’t be moving side by side.)
This velocity is then perpendicular to the magnetic ﬁeld, and the resulting direction for the cross
product will be opposite to the direction of E. Then for balance,

E33-2 B = µ0 i/2πd = (4π ×10−7 T · m/A)(120 A)/2π(6.3 m) = 3.8×10−6 T. This will deﬂect the
compass needle by as much as one degree. However, there is unlikely to be a place on the Earth’s
surface where the magnetic ﬁeld is 210 µT. This was likely a typo, and should probably have been
21.0 µT. The deﬂection would then be some ten degrees, and that is signiﬁcant.

E33-13 There are four current segments that could contribute to the magnetic ﬁeld. The straight

toward or directly away from the point P .
That leaves the two rounded segments. Each contribution to B can be found by starting with
Eq. 33-21, or µ0 iθ/4πb. The direction is out of the page.

the plane of the small loop is also perpendicular to the plane of the large loop, the magnetic ﬁeld is

torque on the small loop is

(a) The force on the projectile is given by the integral of
dF = i dl × B
over the length of the projectile (which is w). The magnetic ﬁeld strength can be found from adding
together the contributions from each rail. If the rails are circular and the distance between them is
small compared to the length of the wire we can use Eq. 33-13,
B=
µ0 i
,
2πx
where x is the distance from the center of the rail. There is one problem, however, because these
are not wires of inﬁnite length. Since the current stops traveling along the rail when it reaches the
projectile we have a rod that is only half of an inﬁnite rod, so we need to multiply by a factor of
1/2. But there are two rails, and each will contribute to the ﬁeld, so the net magnetic ﬁeld strength
between the rails is
µ0 i

B=

In that last term we have an expression that is a measure of the distance from the center of the
lower rail in terms of the distance x from the center of the upper rail.
The magnitude of the force on the projectile is then

The current through the projectile is down the page; the magnetic ﬁeld through the projectile is
into the page; so the force on the projectile, according to F = il × B, is to the right.

F =

(0.067 m) + (0.012 m)

The speed of the rail can be found from either energy conservation so we ﬁrst ﬁnd the work done
on the projectile,
W = F d = (6.65×103 N)(4.0 m) = 2.66×104 J.
This work results in a change in the kinetic energy, so the ﬁnal speed is
v=
2K/m =
2(2.66×104 J)/(0.010 kg) = 2.31×103 m/s.
E33-24 The contributions from the left end and the right end of the square cancel out. This leaves
the top and the bottom. The net force is the diﬀerence, or

The solenoid has a length of 1.33 m, so the total number of turns is
N = nL = (1.00×103 /m−1 )(1.33 m) = 1330,
and since each turn has a length of one circumference, then the total length of the wire which makes
up the solenoid is (1330)π(0.026 m) = 109 m.

B · ds = 5µ0 i0 .
E33-31 (a) The path is clockwise, so a positive current is into page. The net current is 2.0 A out,
so B · ds = −µ0 i0 = −2.5×10−6 T · m.

equation will reduce to 2πrB, just like in Eq. 33-32. The right hand side, however, depends on
the net current enclosed which is the current i in the center wire minus the fraction of the current
enclosed in the outer conductor. The cross sectional area of the outer conductor is π(a2 − b2 ), so

E33-35 The magnitude of the magnetic ﬁeld due to the cylinder will be zero at the center of
the cylinder and µ0 i0 /2π(2R) at point P . The magnitude of the magnetic ﬁeld ﬁeld due to the
wire will be µ0 i/2π(3R) at the center of the cylinder but µ0 i/2πR at P . In order for the net
ﬁeld to have diﬀerent directions in the two locations the currents in the wire and pipe must be in
diﬀerent direction. The net ﬁeld at the center of the pipe is µ0 i/2π(3R), while that at P is then
µ0 i0 /2π(2R) − µ0 i/2πR. Set these equal and solve for i;
i/3 = i0 /2 − i,

so B cannot have an abrupt change.

B · h = 0. If the integral is performed in a counterclockwise direction (it must, since the sense

There is only one loop, and we want to evaluate this expression for t = 2.0 s, so
|E| = (1) (12 mWb/s2 )(2.0 s) + (7 mWb/s) = 31 mV.
(b) This part isn’t harder. The magnetic ﬂux through the loop is increasing when t = 2.0 s. The
induced current needs to ﬂow in such a direction to create a second magnetic ﬁeld to oppose this
increase. The original magnetic ﬁeld is out of the page and we oppose the increase by pointing the
other way, so the second ﬁeld will point into the page (inside the loop).
By the right hand rule this means the induced current is clockwise through the loop, or to the
left through the resistor.

so E = (2.0 V) + (2.3 V) = 4.3 V.
E34-11 (a) The induced emf, as a function of time, is given by Eq. 34-5, E(t) = −dΦB (t)/dt
This emf drives a current through the loop which obeys E(t) = i(t)R Combining,

(b) No. The induced current could have increased from zero to some positive value, then decreased
to zero and became negative, so that the net charge to ﬂow through the resistor was zero. This
would be like sloshing the charge back and forth through the loop.
E34-12 ∆P hiB = 2ΦB = 2N BA. Then the charge to ﬂow through is
q = 2(125)(1.57 T)(12.2×10−4 m2 )/(13.3 Ω) = 3.60×10−2 C.

E34-14 Use Eq. 34-6: E = BDv = (55×10−6 T)(1.10 m)(25 m/s) = 1.5×10−3 V.
E34-15 If the angle doesn’t vary then the ﬂux, given by
Φ=B·A
is constant, so there is no emf.
E34-16 (a) Use Eq. 34-6: E = BDv = (1.18T)(0.108 m)(4.86 m/s) = 0.619 V.
(b) i = (0.619 V)/(0.415 Ω) = 1.49 A.

(e) P = F v = (0.190 V)(4.86 m/s) = 0.923 W.
E34-17 The magnetic ﬁeld is out of the page, and the current through the rod is down. Then Eq.
32-26 F = iL × B shows that the direction of the magnetic force is to the right; furthermore, since
everything is perpendicular to everything else, we can get rid of the vector nature of the problem
and write F = iLB. Newton’s second law gives F = ma, and the acceleration of an object from rest
results in a velocity given by v = at. Combining,
v(t) =
iLB
t.
m
E34-18 (b) The rod will accelerate as long as there is a net force on it. This net force comes from
F = iLB. The current is given by iR = E − BLv, so as v increases i decreases. When i = 0 the rod
stops accelerating and assumes a terminal velocity.
(a) E = BLv will give the terminal velocity. In this case, v = E/BL.
E34-19
E34-20 The acceleration is a = Rω 2 ; since E = BωR2 /2, we can ﬁnd
a = 4E 2 /B 2 R3 = 4(1.4 V)2 /(1.2 T)2 (5.3×10−2 m)3 = 3.7×104 m/s2 .
E34-21 We will use the results of Exercise 11 that were worked out above. All we need to do is
ﬁnd the initial ﬂux; ﬂipping the coil up-side-down will simply change the sign of the ﬂux.
So
ΦB (0) = B · A = (59 µT)(π)(0.13 m)2 sin(20◦ ) = 1.1×10−6 Wb.

The ﬂux through the loop is given by

but since the magnetic ﬁeld from the long straight wire goes through the loop perpendicular to the

The current will be this emf divided by the resistance R. The “back-of-the-book” answer is somewhat
diﬀerent; the answer is expressed in terms of D instead if t. The two answers are otherwise identical.
E34-24 (a) The area of the triangle is A = x2 tan θ/2. In this case x = vt, so
ΦB = B(vt)2 tan θ/2,
and then
E = 2Bv 2 t tan θ/2,
(b) t = E/2Bv 2 tan θ/2, so
t=

E34-25 E = N BAω, so
ω=

= 39.4 rad/s.
(97)(0.33 T)(0.0190 m2 )
That’s 6.3 rev/second.
E34-26 (a) The frequency of the emf is the same as the frequency of rotation, f .
(b) The ﬂux changes by BA = Bπa2 during a half a revolution. This is a sinusoidal change, so
the amplitude of the sinusoidal variation in the emf is E = ΦB ω/2. Then E = Bπ 2 a2 f .
E34-27 We can use Eq. 34-10; the emf is E = BAω sin ωt, This will be a maximum when
sin ωt = 1. The angular frequency, ω is equal to ω = (1000)(2π)/(60) rad/s = 105 rad/s The
maximum emf is then
E = (3.5 T) [(100)(0.5 m)(0.3 m)] (105 rad/s) = 5.5 kV.
E34-28 (a) The amplitude of the emf is E = BAω, so
A = E/2πf B = (150 V)/2π(60/s)(0.50 T) = 0.798m2 .
(b) Divide the previous result by 100. A = 79.8 cm2 .
E34-29 dΦB /dt = A dB/dt = A(−8.50 mT/s).
(a) For this path
E · ds = −dΦB /dt = − − π(0.212 m)2 (−8.50 mT/s) = −1.20 mV.
(b) For this path
E · ds = −dΦB /dt = − − π(0.323 m)2 (−8.50 mT/s) = −2.79 mV.
123
(c) For this path
E · ds = −dΦB /dt = − − π(0.323 m)2 (−8.50 mT/s) − π(0.323 m)2 (−8.50 mT/s) = 1.59 mV.
E34-30 dΦB /dt = A dB/dt = A(−6.51 mT/s), while E · ds = 2πrE.
(a) The path of integration is inside the solenoid, so
E=

The induced electric ﬁeld can be found from applying Eq. 34-13,
E · ds = −
dΦB
.
dt
We start with the left hand side of this expression. The problem has cylindrical symmetry, so the
induced electric ﬁeld lines should be circles centered on the axis of the cylindrical volume. If we
choose the path of integration to lie along an electric ﬁeld line, then the electric ﬁeld E will be
parallel to ds, and E will be uniform along this path, so
E · ds =
E ds = E
ds = 2πrE,
where r is the radius of the circular path.
Now for the right hand side. The ﬂux is contained in the path of integration, so ΦB = Bπr2 .
All of the time dependence of the ﬂux is contained in B, so we can immediately write
2πrE = −πr2
dB
r dB
or E = −
.
dt
2 dt
What does the negative sign mean? The path of integration is chosen so that if our right hand ﬁngers
curl around the path our thumb gives the direction of the magnetic ﬁeld which cuts through the
path. Since the ﬁeld points into the page a positive electric ﬁeld would have a clockwise orientation.
Since B is decreasing the derivative is negative, but we get another negative from the equation
above, so the electric ﬁeld has a positive direction.
Now for the magnitude.
E = (4.82×10−2 m)(10.7×10−3 T /s)/2 = 2.58×10−4 N/C.
The acceleration of the electron at either a or c then has magnitude
a = Eq/m = (2.58×10−4 N/C)(1.60×10−19 C)/(9.11×10−31 kg) = 4.53×107 m/s2 .
P34-1 The induced current is given by i = E/R. The resistance of the loop is given by R = ρL/A,
where A is the cross sectional area. Combining, and writing in terms of the radius of the wire, we
have
πr2 E
i=

ρL
124
The length of the wire is related to the radius of the wire because we have a ﬁxed mass. The total
volume of the wire is πr2 L, and this is related to the mass and density by m = δπr2 L. Eliminating
r we have
mE
i=
.
ρδL2
The length of the wire loop is the same as the circumference, which is related to the radius R of the
loop by L = 2πR. The emf is related to the changing ﬂux by E = −dΦB /dt, but if the shape of the
loop is ﬁxed this becomes E = −A dB/dt. Combining all of this,
i=
mA dB

ρδ(2πR)2 dt
We dropped the negative sign because we are only interested in absolute values here.

P34-2 For the lower surface B · A = (76×10−3 T)(π/2)(0.037 m)2 cos(62◦ ) = 7.67×10−5 Wb. For
the upper surface B · A = (76×10−3 T)(π/2)(0.037 m)2 cos(28◦ ) = 1.44×10−4 Wb.. The induced emf
is then
E = (7.67×10−5 Wb + 1.44×10−4 Wb)/(4.5×10−3 s) = 4.9×10−2 V.
P34-3 (a) We are only interested in the portion of the ring in the yz plane. Then E = (3.32×

(b) From c to b. Point your right thumb along −x to oppose the increasing B ﬁeld. Your right
ﬁngers will curl from c to b.
P34-4 E ∝ N A, but A = πr2 and N 2πr = L, so E ∝ 1/N . This means use only one loop to
maximize the emf.
P34-5 This is a integral best performed in rectangular coordinates, then dA = (dx)(dy). The
magnetic ﬁeld is perpendicular to the surface area, so B · dA = B dA. The ﬂux is then

But a = 2.0 cm, so this becomes

The emf around the square is given by
dΦB
= −(3.2×10−5 Wb/s2 )t,
dt
and at t = 2.5 s this is −8.0×10−5 V. Since the magnetic ﬁeld is directed out of the page, a positive
emf would be counterclockwise (hold your right thumb in the direction of the magnetic ﬁeld and
your ﬁngers will give a counter clockwise sense around the loop). But the answer was negative, so
the emf must be clockwise.

It is given that B = 0.785 T, r = 1.23 m, and dr/dt = −7.50×10−2 m/s. The negative sign indicate

E = −2π(1.23 m)(0.785 T)(−7.50×10−2 m/s) = 0.455 V.
P34-8 (a) dΦB /dt = B dA/dt, but dA/dt is ∆A/∆t, where ∆A is the area swept out during one

P34-11 It does say approximate, so we will be making some rather bold assumptions here. First
we will ﬁnd an expression for the emf. Since B is constant, the emf must be caused by a change in
the area; in this case a shift in position. The small square where B = 0 has a width a and sweeps
around the disk with a speed rω. An approximation for the emf is then E = Barω. This emf causes
a current. We don’t know exactly where the current ﬂows, but we can reasonably assume that it
occurs near the location of the magnetic ﬁeld. Let us assume that it is constrained to that region of
the disk. The resistance of this portion of the disk is the approximately
R=
1L
1 a

where we have assumed that the current is ﬂowing radially when deﬁning the cross sectional area of
the “resistor”. The induced current is then (on the order of)
E
Barω

R
1/(σt)
This current experiences a breaking force according to F = BIl, so
F = B 2 a2 rωσt,
where l is the length through which the current ﬂows, which is a.
Finally we can ﬁnd the torque from τ = rF , and
τ = B 2 a2 r2 ωσt.
127
P34-12 The induced electric ﬁeld in the ring is given by Eq. 34-11: 2πRE = |dΦB /dt|. This

Actually, it should be pointed out that ∆P hiB refers to the change in ﬂux from external sources. The
current induced in the wire will produce a ﬂux which will exactly oﬀset ∆P hiB so that the net ﬂux
through the superconducting ring is ﬁxed at the value present when the ring became superconducting.
P34-13 Assume that E does vary as the picture implies. Then the line integral along the path
shown must be nonzero, since E · l on the right is not zero, while it is along the three other sides.
Hence E · dl is non zero, implying a change in the magnetic ﬂux through the dotted path. But it
doesn’t, so E cannot have an abrupt change.

µ = (7.00 A)π(0.20 m)2 + (7.00 A)π(0.30 m)2 = 2.86 A · m2 .
(b) Reversing the current reverses the moment, so

(a) The result from Problem 33-4 for a square loop of wire was
B(z) =
4µ0 ia2
.
π(4z 2 + a2 )(4z 2 + 2a2 )1/2
For z much, much larger than a we can ignore any a terms which are added to or subtracted from
z terms. This means that
4z 2 + a2 → 4z 2 and (4z 2 + 2a2 )1/2 → 2z,
but we can’t ignore the a2 in the numerator.
The expression for B then simpliﬁes to
B(z) =
µ0 ia2
,
2πz 3
which certainly looks like Eq. 35-4.
(b) We can rearrange this expression and get
B(z) =
µ0
ia2 ,
2πz 3
where it is rather evident that ia2 must correspond to µ, the dipole moment, in Eq. 35-4. So that
must be the answer.

E35-10 1.50 g of water has (2)(6.02 × 1023 )(1.5)/(18) = 1.00 × 1023 hydrogen nuclei. If all are

E35-12 The mass of the bar is

The number of atoms in the bar is
N = (6.02×1023 )(50.1 g)/(55.8 g) = 5.41×1023 .
The dipole moment of the bar is then
µ = (5.41×1023 )(2.22)(9.27×10−24 J/T) = 11.6 J/T.
(b) The torque on the magnet is τ = (11.6 J/T)(1.53 T) = 17.7 N · m.

The magnetic dipole moment is given by µ = M V , Eq. 35-13. Then

E35-14 (a) The original ﬁeld is B0 = µ0 in. The ﬁeld will increase to B = κm B0 , so the increase is
∆B = (κ1 − 1)µ0 in = (3.3×10−4 )(4π×10−7 N/A2 )(1.3 A)(1600/m) = 8.6×10−7 T.
(b) M = (κ1 − 1)B0 /µ0 = (κ1 − 1)in = (3.3×10−4 )(1.3 A)(1600/m) = 0.69 A/m.

E35-16 The Curie temperature of iron is 770◦ C, which is 750◦ C higher than the surface temperature. This occurs at a depth of (750◦ C)/(30 C◦ /km) = 25 km.
E35-17 (a) Look at the ﬁgure. At 50% (which is 0.5 on the vertical axis), the curve is at
B0 /T ≈ 0.55 T/K. Since T = 300 K, we have B0 ≈ 165 T.
(b) Same ﬁgure, but now look at the 90% mark. B0 /T ≈ 1.60 T/K, so B0 ≈ 480 T.
(c) Good question. I think both ﬁelds are far beyond our current abilities.
E35-18 (a) Look at the ﬁgure. At 50% (which is 0.5 on the vertical axis), the curve is at B0 /T ≈
0.55 T/K. Since B0 = 1.8 T, we have T ≈ (1.8 T)/(0.55 T/K) = 3.3 K.
(b) Same ﬁgure, but now look at the 90% mark. B0 /T ≈ 1.60 T/K, so T ≈ (1.8 T)/(1.60 T/K) =
1.1 K.
E35-19 Since (0.5 T)/(10 K) = 0.05 T/K, and all higher temperatures have lower values of the
ratio, and this puts all points in the region near where Curie’s Law (the straight line) is valid, then
the answer is yes.

E35-22 ΦB = (43×10−6 T)(295, 000×106 m2 ) = 1.3×107 Wb.
E35-23 (a) We’ll assume, however, that all of the iron atoms are perfectly aligned. Then the
dipole moment of the earth will be related to the dipole moment of one atom by
µEarth = N µFe ,
where N is the number of iron atoms in the magnetized sphere. If mA is the relative atomic mass
of iron, then the total mass is

4π(14×106 g/m )(2.1×10−23 J/T)(6.0×1023 /mol)
(b) The fractional volume is the cube of the fractional radius, so the answer is

E35-25 This problem is eﬀectively solving 1/r3 = 1/2 for r measured in Earth radii. Then
r = 1.26rE , and the altitude above the Earth is (0.26)(6.37×106 m) = 1.66×106 m.
E35-26 The radial distance from the center is r = (6.37×106 m) − (2900×103 m) = 3.47×106 m.

The inclination is given by

E35-28 The ﬂux out the “other” end is (1.6×10−3 T)π(0.13 m)2 = 85µWb. The net ﬂux through
the surface is zero, so the ﬂux through the curved surface is 0 − (85µWb) − (−25µWb) = −60µWb..
The negative indicates inward.
E35-29 The total magnetic ﬂux through a closed surface is zero. There is inward ﬂux on faces
one, three, and ﬁve for a total of -9 Wb. There is outward ﬂux on faces two and four for a total of
+6 Wb. The diﬀerence is +3 Wb; consequently the outward ﬂux on the sixth face must be +3 Wb.

P35-1 We can imagine the rotating disk as being composed of a number of rotating rings of
radius r, width dr, and circumference 2πr. The surface charge density on the disk is σ = q/πR2 ,
and consequently the (diﬀerential) charge on any ring is
dq = σ(2πr)(dr) =

P35-2 (a) The sphere can be sliced into disks. The disks can be sliced into rings. Each ring has
some charge qi , radius ri , and mass mi ; the period of rotation for a ring is T = 2π/ω, so the current
in the ring is qi /T = ωqi /2π. The magnetic moment is

µi = (ωqi /2π)πri = ωqi ri /2.

Note that this is closely related to the expression for angular momentum of a ring: li = ωmi ri .
Equating,
µi = qi li /2mi .
If both mass density and charge density are uniform then we can write qi /mi = q/m,
µ=
dµ = (q/2m)
dl = qL/2m
For a solid sphere L = ωI = 2ωmR2 /5, so

P35-6 (a) Let x = µB/kT . Adopt the convention that N+ refers to the atoms which have parallel

N+ = N ex /(ex + e−x ),
and
N− = N e−x /(ex + e−x ),
Note that the denominators are necessary so that N+ + N− = N . Finally,
M = µ(N+ − N− ) = µN

E36-19 (a) When the switch is just closed there is no current through the inductor. So i1 = i2 is
given by

i1 =

R1 + R2
(10 Ω) + (20 Ω)
(b) A long time later there is current through the inductor, but it is as if the inductor has no
eﬀect on the circuit. Then the eﬀective resistance of the circuit is found by ﬁrst ﬁnding the equivalent
resistance of the parallel part
1/(30 Ω) + 1/(20 Ω) = 1/(12 Ω),
and then ﬁnding the equivalent resistance of the circuit
(10 Ω) + (12 Ω) = 22 Ω.
Finally, i1 = (100 V)/(22 Ω) = 4.55 A and
∆V2 = (100 V) − (4.55 A)(10 Ω) = 54.5 V;
consequently, i2 = (54.5 V)/(20 Ω) = 2.73 A. It didn’t ask, but i2 = (4.55 A) − (2.73 A) = 1.82 A.
(c) After the switch is just opened the current through the battery stops, while that through the
inductor continues on. Then i2 = i3 = 1.82 A.
(d) All go to zero.
E36-20 (a) For toroids L = µ0 N 2 h ln(b/a)/2π. The number of turns is limited by the inner radius:
N d = 2πa. In this case,
N = 2π(0.10 m)/(0.00096 m) = 654.
The inductance is then
L=
(4π×10−7 H/m)(654)2 (0.02 m) (0.12 m)
ln
= 3.1×10−4 H.
2π
(0.10 m)
(b) Each turn has a length of 4(0.02 m) = 0.08 m. The resistance is then
R = N (0.08 m)(0.021 Ω/m) = 1.10 Ω
The time constant is
τL = L/R = (3.1×10−4 H)/(1.10 Ω) = 2.8×10−4 s.
E36-21 (I) When the switch is just closed there is no current through the inductor or R2 , so the
potential diﬀerence across the inductor must be 10 V. The potential diﬀerence across R1 is always
10 V when the switch is closed, regardless of the amount of time elapsed since closing.
(a) i1 = (10 V)/(5.0 Ω) = 2.0 A.
(b) Zero; read the above paragraph.
(c) The current through the switch is the sum of the above two currents, or 2.0 A.
(d) Zero, since the current through R2 is zero.
(e) 10 V, since the potential across R2 is zero.
(f) Look at the results of Exercise 36-17. When t = 0 the rate of change of the current is
di/dt = E/L. Then
di/dt = (10 V)/(5.0 H) = 2.0 A/s.
(II) After the switch has been closed for a long period of time the currents are stable and the
inductor no longer has an eﬀect on the circuit. Then the circuit is a simple two resistor parallel
network, each resistor has a potential diﬀerence of 10 V across it.
139
(a) Still 2.0 A; nothing has changed.
(b) i2 = (10 V)/(10 Ω) = 1.0 A.
(c) Add the two currents and the current through the switch will be 3.0 A.
(d) 10 V; see the above discussion.
(e) Zero, since the current is no longer changing.
(f) Zero, since the current is no longer changing.
E36-22 U = (71 J/m3 )(0.022 m3 ) = 1.56 J. Then using U = i2 L/2 we get
i=

2(1.56 J)/(0.092 H) = 5.8 A.
E36-23 (a) L = 2U/i2 = 2(0.0253 J)/(0.062 A)2 = 13.2 H.
(b) Since the current is squared in the energy expression, doubling the current would quadruple
the energy. Then i = 2i0 = 2(0.062 A) = 0.124 A.
E36-24 (a) B = µ0 in and u = B 2 /2µ0 , or
u = µ0 i2 n2 /2 = (4π×10−7 N/A2 )(6.57 A)2 (950/0.853 m)2 /2 = 33.6 J/m3 .
(b) U = uAL = (33.6 J/m3 )(17.2×10−4 m2 )(0.853 m) = 4.93×10−2 J.
E36-25 uB = B 2 /2µ0 , and from Sample Problem 33-2 we know B, hence
uB =

ﬁnd the energy contained is
U = (3.98×10−15 J/m3 )(9.46×1016 m)3 = 3.4×1036 J

E36-28 The rate of internal energy increase in the resistor is given by P = i∆VR . The rate of
energy storage in the inductor is dU/dt = Li di/dt = i∆VL . Since the current is the same through
both we want to ﬁnd the time when ∆VR = ∆VL . Using Eq. 36-15 we ﬁnd
1 − e−t/τL = e−t/τL ,
ln 2 = t/τL ,
so t = (37.5 ms) ln 2 = 26.0 ms.

E36-37 Closing a switch has the eﬀect of “shorting” out the relevant circuit element, which
eﬀectively removes it from the circuit. If S1 is closed we have τC = RC or C = τC /R, if instead S2

E36-40 The period of oscillation is T = 2π LC = 2π (52.2mH)(4.21µF) = 2.95 ms. It requires
one-quarter period for the capacitor to charge, or 0.736 ms.
E36-41 (a) An LC circuit oscillates so that the energy is converted from all magnetic to all
electrical twice each cycle. It occurs twice because once the energy is magnetic with the current
ﬂowing in one direction through the inductor, and later the energy is magnetic with the current
ﬂowing the other direction through the inductor.
The period is then four times 1.52µs, or 6.08µs.

E36-50 The key here is that UE = C(∆V )2 /2. We want to charge a capacitor with one-ninth the
capacitance to have three times the potential diﬀerence. Since 32 = 9, it is reasonable to assume
that we want to take all of the energy from the ﬁrst capacitor and give it to the second. Closing
S1 and S2 will not work, because the energy will be shared. Instead, close S2 until the capacitor
has completely discharged into the inductor, then simultaneously open S2 while closing S1 . The
inductor will then discharge into the second capacitor. Open S1 when it is “full”.

P36-6 (a) So long as the fuse is not blown there is eﬀectively no resistance in the circuit. Then
the equation for the current is E = L di/dt, but since E is constant, this has a solution i = Et/L.
The fuse blows when t = imax L/E = (3.0 A)(5.0 H)/(10 V) = 1.5 s.
(b) Note that once the fuse blows the maximum steady state current is 2/3 A, so there must be
an exponential approach to that current.
P36-7 The initial rate of increase is di/dt = E/L. Since the steady state current is E/R, the
current will reach the steady state value in a time given by E/R = i = Et/L, or t = L/R. But that’s

E37-1
The frequency, f , is related to the angular frequency ω by
ω = 2πf = 2π(60 Hz) = 377 rad/s
The current is alternating because that is what the generator is designed to produce. It does this
through the conﬁguration of the magnets and coils of wire. One complete turn of the generator will
(could?) produce one “cycle”; hence, the generator is turning 60 times per second. Not only does
this set the frequency, it also sets the emf, since the emf is proportional to the speed at which the
coils move through the magnetic ﬁeld.
E37-2 (a) XL = ωL, so
f = XL /2πL = (1.28×103 Ω)/2π(0.0452 H) = 4.51×103 /s.
(b) XC = 1/ωC, so
C = 1/2πf XC = 1/2π(4.51×103 /s)(1.28×103 Ω) = 2.76×10−8 F.
(c) The inductive reactance doubles while the capacitive reactance is cut in half.
√
E37-3 (a) XL = XC implies ωL = 1/ωC or ω = 1/ LC, so
ω = 1/ (6.23×10−3 H)(11.4×10−6 F) = 3750 rad/s.
(b) XL = ωL = (3750 rad/s)(6.23×10−3 H) = 23.4 Ω
(c) See (a) above.
E37-4 (a) im = E/XL = E/ωL, so
im = (25.0 V)/(377 rad/s)(12.7 H) = 5.22×10−3 A.
(b) The current and emf are 90◦ out of phase. When the current is a maximum, E = 0.
(c) ωt = arcsin[E(t)/E m ], so
ωt = arcsin
(−13.8 V)
= 0.585 rad.
(25.0 V)
and
i = (5.22×10−3 A) cos(0.585) = 4.35×10−3 A.
(d) Taking energy.
E37-5 (a) The reactance of the capacitor is from Eq. 37-11, XC = 1/ωC. The AC generator
from Exercise 4 has E = (25.0 V) sin(377 rad/s)t. So the reactance is
XC =
1
1
=
= 647 Ω.
ωC
(377 rad/s)(4.1µF)
The maximum value of the current is found from Eq. 37-13,
im =
(∆VC )max )
(25.0 V)
=
= 3.86×10−2 A.
XC
(647 Ω)
(b) The generator emf is 90◦ out of phase with the current, so when the current is a maximum
the emf is zero.
151
(c) The emf is -13.8 V when
ωt = arcsin
(−13.8 V)
= 0.585 rad.
(25.0 V)
The current leads the voltage by 90◦ = π/2, so
i = im sin(ωt − φ) = (3.86×10−2 A) sin(0.585 − π/2) = −3.22×10−2 A.
(d) Since both the current and the emf are negative the product is positive and the generator is
supplying energy to the circuit.
E37-6 R = (ωL − 1/omegaC)/ tan φ and ω = 2πf = 2π(941/s) = 5910 rad/s , so
R=
(5910 rad/s)(88.3×10−3 H) − 1/(5910 rad/s)(937×10−9 F)
= 91.5 Ω.
tan(75◦ )
E37-7
E37-8 (a) XL doesn’t change, so XL = 87 Ω.
(b) XC = 1/ωC = 1/2π(60/s)(70×10−6 F) = 37.9Ω.
(c) Z = (160 Ω)2 + (87 Ω − 37.9 Ω)2 = 167 Ω.
(d) im = (36 V)/(167 Ω) = 0.216 A.
(e) tan φ = (87 Ω − 37.9 Ω)/(160 Ω) = 0.3069, so
φ = arctan(0.3069) = 17◦ .
E37-9 A circuit is considered inductive if XL > XC , this happens when im lags E m . If, on the
other hand, XL < XC , and im leads E m , we refer to the circuit as capacitive. This is discussed on
page 850, although it is slightly hidden in the text of column one.
(a) At resonance, XL = XC . Since XL = ωL and XC = 1/ωC we expect that XL grows with
increasing frequency, while XC decreases with increasing frequency.
Consequently, at frequencies above the resonant frequency XL > XC and the circuit is predominantly inductive. But what does this really mean? It means that the inductor plays a major role in
the current through the circuit while the capacitor plays a minor role. The more inductive a circuit
is, the less signiﬁcant any capacitance is on the behavior of the circuit.
For frequencies below the resonant frequency the reverse is true.
(b) Right at the resonant frequency the inductive eﬀects are exactly canceled by the capacitive
eﬀects. The impedance is equal to the resistance, and it is (almost) as if neither the capacitor or
inductor are even in the circuit.
E37-10 The net y component is XC − XL . The net x component is R. The magnitude of the
resultant is
Z = R2 + (XC − XL )2 ,
while the phase angle is
tan φ =
−(XC − XL )
.
R
E37-11 Yes.
At resonance ω = 1/ (1.2 H)(1.3×10−6 F) = 800 rad/s and Z = R. Then im = E/Z =
(10 V)/(9.6 Ω) = 1.04 A, so
[∆VL ]m = im XL = (1.08 A)(800 rad/s)(1.2 H) = 1000 V.
152
E37-12 (a) Let O = XL − XC and A = R, then H 2 = A2 + O2 = Z 2 , so
sin φ = (XL − XC )/Z
and
cos φ = R/Z.
E37-13 (a) The voltage across the generator is the generator emf, so when it is a maximum from
Sample Problem 37-3, it is 36 V. This corresponds to ωt = π/2.
(b) The current through the circuit is given by i = im sin(ωt − φ). We found in Sample Problem
37-3 that im = 0.196 A and φ = −29.4◦ = 0.513 rad.
For a resistive load we apply Eq. 37-3,
∆VR = im R sin(ωt − φ) = (0.196 A)(160Ω) sin((π/2) − (−0.513)) = 27.3 V.
(c) For a capacitive load we apply Eq. 37-12,
∆VC = im XC sin(ωt − φ − π/2) = (0.196 A)(177Ω) sin(−(−0.513)) = 17.0 V.
(d) For an inductive load we apply Eq. 37-7,
∆VL = im XL sin(ωt − φ + π/2) = (0.196 A)(87Ω) sin(π − (−0.513)) = −8.4 V.
(e) (27.3 V) + (17.0 V) + (−8.4 V) = 35.9 V.
E37-14 If circuit 1 and 2 have the same resonant frequency then L1 C1 = L2 C2 . The series
combination for the inductors is
L = L1 + L2 ,
The series combination for the capacitors is
1/C = 1/C1 + 1/C2 ,
so
C1 C2
L1 C1 C2 + L2 C2 C1
=
= L1 C1 ,
C1 + C2
C1 + C2
which is the same as both circuit 1 and 2.
LC = (L1 + L2 )
E37-15 (a) Z = (125 V)/(3.20 A) = 39.1 Ω.
(b) Let O = XL − XC and A = R, then H 2 = A2 + O2 = Z 2 , so
cos φ = R/Z.
Using this relation,
R = (39.1 Ω) cos(56.3◦ ) = 21.7 Ω.
(c) If the current leads the emf then the circuit is capacitive.

(c) irms = (120 V)/(12.4 Ω) = 9.67 A.
√
E37-21 The rms value of any sinusoidal quantity is related to the maximum value by 2 v rms =
√
vmax . Since this factor of 2 appears in all of the expressions, we can conclude that if the rms values
are equal then so are the maximum values. This means that
(∆VR )max = (∆VC )max = (∆VL )max
or im R = im XC = im XL or, with one last simpliﬁcation, R = XL = XC . Focus on the right hand
side of the last equality. If XC = XL then we have a resonance condition, and the impedance (see
Eq. 37-20) is a minimum, and is equal to R. Then, according to Eq. 37-21,
im =
Em
,
R
which has the immediate consequence that the rms voltage across the resistor is the same as the
rms voltage across the generator. So everything is 100 V.
√
E37-22 (a) The antenna is “in-tune” when the impedance is a minimum, or ω = 1/ LC. So
f = ω/2π = 1/2π
(8.22×10−6 H)(0.270×10−12 F) = 1.07×108 Hz.
(b) irms = (9.13 µV)/(74.7 Ω) = 1.22×10−7 A.
(c) XC = 1/2πf C, so
VC = iXC = (1.22×10−7 A)/2π(1.07×108 Hz)(0.270 ×10−12 F) = 6.72×10−4 V.
154
E37-23 Assuming no inductors or capacitors in the circuit, then the circuit eﬀectively behaves as
a DC circuit. The current through the circuit is i = E/(r + R). The power delivered to R is then
P = i∆V = i2 R = E 2 R/(r + R)2 . Evaluate dP/dR and set it equal to zero to ﬁnd the maximum.
Then
r−R

(r + R)3
which has the solution r = R.
E37-24 (a) Since P av = im 2 R/2 = E m 2 R/2Z 2 , then P av is a maximum when Z is a minimum, and
√
vise-versa. Z is a minimum at resonance, when Z = R and f = 1/2π LC. When Z is a minimum
C = 1/4π 2 f 2 L = 1/4π 2 (60 Hz)2 (60 mH) = 1.2×10−7 F.
(b) Z is a maximum when XC is a maximum, which occurs when C is very small, like zero.
(c) When XC is a maximum P = 0. When P is a maximum Z = R so
P = (30 V)2 /2(5.0 Ω) = 90 W.
(d) The phase angle is zero for resonance; it is 90◦ for inﬁnite XC or XL .
(e) The power factor is zero for a system which has no power. The power factor is one for a
system in resonance.

E37-26 (a) The energy stored in the capacitor is a function of the charge on the capacitor; although
the charge does vary with time it varies periodically and at the end of the cycle has returned to the

next.
(b) The energy stored in the inductor is a function of the current in the inductor; although the

maximum current), we have XL = 2R and XC = R.
From Eq. 37-18,

or φ = 45◦ .
(b) The impedance of the circuit, in terms of the resistive element, is
√
Z = R2 + (XL − XC )2 = R2 + (2R − R)2 = 2 R.
But E m = im Z, so Z = (34.4 V)/(0.320 A) = 108Ω. Then we can use our previous work to ﬁnds that
R = 76Ω.

P37-4 When the switch is open the circuit is an LRC circuit. In position 1 the circuit is an RLC
circuit, but the capacitance is equal to the two capacitors of C in parallel, or 2C. In position 2 the
circuit is a simple LC circuit with no resistance.
The impedance when the switch is in position 2 is Z2 = |ωL − 1/ωC|. But
Z2 = (170 V)/(2.82 A) = 60.3 Ω.
The phase angle when the switch is open is φ0 = 20◦ . But
tan φ0 =

so R = (60.3 Ω)/ tan(20◦ ) = 166 Ω.
The phase angle when the switch is in position 1 is
tan φ1 =

so ωL − 1/ω2C = (166 Ω) tan(10◦ ) = 29.2 Ω. Equating the ωL part,

(−60.3 Ω) + 1/ωC,

Finally,
L=
(−60.3Ω) + 1/(377 rad/s)(1.48×10−5 F)

P37-5 All three wires have emfs which vary sinusoidally in time; if we choose any two wires the
phase diﬀerence will have an absolute value of 120◦ . We can then choose any two wires and expect
(by symmetry) to get the same result. We choose 1 and 2. The potential diﬀerence is then
V1 − V2 = V m (sin ωt − sin(ωt − 120◦ )) .
We need to add these two sine functions to get just one. We use

(c) The current amplitude will be halved when the impedance is doubled, or when Z = 2R. This
occurs when 3R2 = (ωL − 1/ωC)2 , or

The power is directly related to the brightness; if the bulb is to be varied in brightness by a factor of
5 then it would have a minimum power of 200 W. The rms current through the bulb at this power
would be
irms = P/R = (200 W)/(14.4 Ω) = 3.73 A.
The impedance of the circuit must have been
Z=

irms
(3.73 A)
The inductive reactance would then be
XL =
Z 2 − R2 =
(32.2 Ω)2 − (14.4 Ω)2 = 28.8 Ω.
Finally, the inductance would be
L = XL /ω = (28.8 Ω)/(2π(60.0 s−1 )) = 7.64 H.
(b) One could use a variable resistor, and since it would be in series with the lamp a value of
32.2 Ω − 14.4Ω = 17.8 Ω
would work. But the resistor would get hot, while on average there is no power radiated from a pure
inductor.

The intensity I is that of the incident beam; the reﬂected beam will have an intensity (1 − f )I.
Each beam will contribute to the energy density— I/c and (1 − f )I/c, respectively. Add these two
energy densities to get the net energy density outside the surface. The result is (2 − f )I/c, which is
the left hand side of the pressure relation above.

can integrate it in any order we want. We want to do the t integration ﬁrst, because an integral over

then the ﬁngers of the right hand grip ion the direction of the magnetic ﬁeld lines. E is directed
parallel to the wire in the direction of the current. S is found from the cross product of these two,

S · dA is only evaluated on the surface of the cylinder, not the end caps. S is everywhere parallel
to dA, so the dot product reduces to S dA; S is uniform, so it can be brought out of the integral;
dA = 2πal on the surface.
Hence,

E39-1 Both scales are logarithmic; choose any data point from the right hand side such as

and another from the left hand side such as
c = f λ ≈ (1×1021 Hz)(3×10−13 m) = 3×108 m/s.
E39-2 (a) f = v/λ = (3.0×108 m/s)/(1.0×104 )(6.37×106 m) = 4.7×10−3 Hz. If we assume that
this is the data transmission rate in bits per second (a generous assumption), then it would take 140
days to download a web-page which would take only 1 second on a 56K modem!

E39-4 Don’t simply take reciprocal of linewidth! f = c/λ, so δf = (−c/λ2 )δλ. Ignore the negative,
and
δf = (3.00×108 m/s)(0.010×10−9 m)/(632.8×10−9 m)2 = 7.5×109 Hz.
E39-5 (a) We refer to Fig. 39-6 to answer this question. The limits are approximately 520 nm
and 620 nm.
(b) The wavelength for which the eye is most sensitive is 550 nm. This corresponds to to a
frequency of
f = c/λ = (3.00 × 108 m/s)/(550 × 10−9 m) = 5.45 × 1014 Hz.
This frequency corresponds to a period of T = 1/f = 1.83 × 10−15 s.
E39-6 f = c/λ. The number of complete pulses is f t, or
f t = ct/λ = (3.00×108 m/s)(430×10−12 s)/(520×10−9 m) = 2.48×105 .

E39-8 (a) t = (150×103 m)/(3×108 m/s) = 5×10−4 s.
(b) The distance traveled by the light is (1.5×1011 m) + 2(3.8×108 m), so
t = (1.51×1011 m)/(3×108 m/s) = 503 s.
(c) t = 2(1.3×1012 m)/(3×108 m/s) = 8670 s.
(d) 1054 − 6500 ≈ 5400 BC.
E39-9 This is a question of how much time it takes light to travel 4 cm, because the light traveled
from the Earth to the moon, bounced oﬀ of the reﬂector, and then traveled back. The time to travel
4 cm is ∆t = (0.04 m)/(3 × 108 m/s) = 0.13 ns. Note that I interpreted the question diﬀerently than
the answer in the back of the book.

E39-10 Consider any incoming ray. The path of the ray can be projected onto the xy plane, the
xz plane, or the yz plane. If the projected rays is exactly reﬂected in all three cases then the three
dimensional incoming ray will be reﬂected exactly reversed. But the problem is symmetric, so it is
suﬃcient to show that any plane works.
Now the problem has been reduced to Sample Problem 39-2, so we are done.
E39-11 We will choose the mirror to lie in the xy plane at z = 0. There is no loss of generality
in doing so; we had to deﬁne our coordinate system somehow. The choice is convenient in that
any normal is then parallel to the z axis. Furthermore, we can arbitrarily deﬁne the incident ray
to originate at (0, 0, z1 ). Lastly, we can rotate the coordinate system about the z axis so that the
reﬂected ray passes through the point (0, y3 , z3 ).
The point of reﬂection for this ray is somewhere on the surface of the mirror, say (x2 , y2 , 0). This
distance traveled from the point 1 to the reﬂection point 2 is
d12 =
(0 − x2 )2 + (0 − y2 )2 + (z1 − 0)2 =
2
2
x2 + y2 + z1
2
and the distance traveled from the reﬂection point 2 to the ﬁnal point 3 is
d23 =
(x2 − 0)2 + (y2 − y3 )2 + (0 − z3 )2 =
2
x2 + (y2 − y3 )2 + z3 .
2
The only point which is free to move is the reﬂection point, (x2 , y2 , 0), and that point can only
move in the xy plane. Fermat’s principle states that the reﬂection point will be such to minimize
the total distance,
d12 + d23 =
2
2
x2 + y2 + z1 +
2
2
x2 + (y2 − y3 )2 + z3 .
2
We do this minimization by taking the partial derivative with respect to both x2 and y2 . But
we can do part by inspection alone. Any non-zero value of x2 can only add to the total distance,
regardless of the value of any of the other quantities. Consequently, x2 = 0 is one of the conditions
for minimization.
We are done! Although you are invited to ﬁnish the minimization process, once we know that
x2 = 0 we have that point 1, point 2, and point 3 all lie in the yz plane. The normal is parallel to
the z axis, so it also lies in the yz plane. Everything is then in the yz plane.

E39-13 (a) θ1 = 38◦ .

E39-17 The speed of light in a substance with index of refraction n is given by v = c/n. An
electron will then emit Cerenkov radiation in this particular liquid if the speed exceeds

E39-18 Since t = d/v = nd/c, ∆t = ∆n d/c. Then
∆t = (1.00029 − 1.00000)(1.61×103 m)/(3.00×108 m/s) = 1.56×10−9 s.

trigonometry,
(1.14 m)
tan θ1 =

E39-23 The ray of light from the top of the smokestack to the life ring is θ1 , where tan θ1 = L/h
with h the height and L the distance of the smokestack.
Snell’s law gives n1 sin θ1 = n2 sin θ2 , so
θ1 = arcsin[(1.33) sin(27◦ )/(1.00)] = 37.1◦ .
Then L = h tan θ1 = (98 m) tan(37.1◦ ) = 74 m.
E39-24 The length of the shadow on the surface of the water is
x1 = (0.64 m)/ tan(55◦ ) = 0.448 m.
The ray of light which forms the “end” of the shadow has an angle of incidence of 35◦ , so the ray
travels into the water at an angle of
θ2 = arcsin
(1.00)
sin(35◦ )
(1.33)
= 25.5◦ .
The ray travels an additional distance
x2 = (2.00 m − 0.64 m)/ tan(90◦ − 25.5◦ ) = 0.649 m
The total length of the shadow is
(0.448 m) + (0.649 m) = 1.10 m.

E39-27 Use the results of Ex. 39-35. The apparent thickness of the carbon tetrachloride layer, as
viewed by an observer in the water, is
dc,w = nw dc /nc = (1.33)(41 mm)/(1.46) = 37.5 mm.
The total “thickness” from the water perspective is then (37.5 mm) + (20 mm) = 57.5 mm. The
apparent thickness of the entire system as view from the air is then
dapp = (57.5 mm)/(1.33) = 43.2 mm.

This is always a positive number, so dL/dx = 0 is a minimum.

This is always a positive number, so dL/dx = 0 is a minimum.
E39-32 (a) The angle of incidence on the face ac will be 90◦ − φ. Total internal reﬂection occurs
when sin(90◦ − φ) > 1/n, or
φ < 90◦ − arcsin[1/(1.52)] = 48.9◦ .
(b) Total internal reﬂection occurs when sin(90◦ − φ) > nw /n, or
φ < 90◦ − arcsin[(1.33)/(1.52)] = 29.0◦ .

(1.667)
(b) Critical angles only exist when “attempting” to travel from a medium of higher index of
refraction to a medium of lower index of refraction; in this case from A to B.
E39-34 If the ﬁre is at the water’s edge then the light travels along the surface, entering the
water near the ﬁsh with an angle of incidence of eﬀectively 90◦ . Then the angle of refraction in
the water is numerically equivalent to a critical angle, so the ﬁsh needs to look up at an angle of
θ = arcsin(1/1.33) = 49◦ with the vertical. That’s the same as 41◦ with the horizontal.
178
E39-35 Light can only emerge from the water if it has an angle of incidence less than the critical
angle, or
θ < θc = arcsin 1/n = arcsin 1/(1.33) = 48.8◦ .
The radius of the circle of light is given by r/d = tan θc , where d is the depth. The diameter is twice
this radius, or
2(0.82 m) tan(48.8◦ ) = 1.87 m.
E39-36 The refracted angle is given by n sin θ1 = sin(39◦ ). This ray strikes the left surface with
an angle of incidence of 90◦ − θ1 . Total internal reﬂection occurs when
sin(90◦ − θ1 ) = 1/n;
but sin(90◦ − θ1 ) = cos θ1 , so we can combine and get tan θ = sin(39◦ ) with solution θ1 = 32.2◦ . The
index of refraction of the glass is then
n = sin(39◦ )/ sin(32.2) = 1.18.
E39-37 The light strikes the quartz-air interface from the inside; it is originally “white”, so if
the reﬂected ray is to appear “bluish” (reddish) then the refracted ray should have been “reddish”
(bluish). Since part of the light undergoes total internal reﬂection while the other part does not,
then the angle of incidence must be approximately equal to the critical angle.
(a) Look at Fig. 39-11, the index of refraction of fused quartz is given as a function of the
wavelength. As the wavelength increases the index of refraction decreases. The critical angle is a
function of the index of refraction; for a substance in air the critical angle is given by sin θc = 1/n.
As n decreases 1/n increases so θc increases. For fused quartz, then, as wavelength increases θc also
increases.
In short, red light has a larger critical angle than blue light. If the angle of incidence is midway
between the critical angle of red and the critical angle of blue, then the blue component of the light
will experience total internal reﬂection while the red component will pass through as a refracted ray.
So yes, the light can be made to appear bluish.
(b) No, the light can’t be made to appear reddish. See above.
(c) Choose an angle of incidence between the two critical angles as described in part (a). Using
a value of n = 1.46 from Fig. 39-11,
θc = sin−1 (1/1.46) = 43.2◦ .
Getting the eﬀect to work will require considerable sensitivity.
E39-38 (a) There needs to be an opaque spot in the center of each face so that no refracted ray
emerges. The radius of the spot will be large enough to cover rays which meet the surface at less
than the critical angle. This means tan θc = r/d, where d is the distance from the surface to the
spot, or 6.3 mm. Since
θc = arcsin 1/(1.52) = 41.1◦ ,
then r = (6.3 mm) tan(41.1◦ ) = 5.50 mm.
(b) The circles have an area of a = π(5.50 mm)2 = 95.0 mm2 . Each side has an area of (12.6 mm)2 ;
the fraction covered is then (95.0 mm2 )/(12.6 mm)2 = 0.598.
E39-39 For u

∆f = −f0 u/c = −u/λ0 ,
so
u = λ0 ∆f = (0.211 m)∆f.

E39-40 c = f λ, so 0 = f ∆λ + λ∆f . Then ∆λ/λ = −∆f /f . Furthermore, f0 − f , from Eq. 39-21,

This corresponds to a velocity parameter of

This is a case of small numbers, so we’ll use the formula that you derived in Exercise 39-40:
∆λ = λβ = (553 nm)(6.7×10−6 ) = 3.7×10−3 nm.

P39-3 sin(30◦ )/(4.0 m/s) = sin θ/(3.0 m/s). Then θ = 22◦ . Water waves travel more slowly in
shallower water, which means they always bend toward the normal as they approach land.
P39-4 (a) If the ray is normal to the water’s surface then it passes into the water undeﬂected.
Once in the water the problem is identical to Sample Problem 39-2. The reﬂected ray in the water
is parallel to the incident ray in the water, so it also strikes the water normal, and is transmitted
normal.
(b) Assume the ray strikes the water at an angle θ1 . It then passes into the water at an angle
θ2 , where
nw sin θ2 = na sin θ1 .
Once the ray is in the water then the problem is identical to Sample Problem 39-2. The reﬂected
ray in the water is parallel to the incident ray in the water, so it also strikes the water at an angle
θ2 . When the ray travels back into the air it travels with an angle θ3 , where
nw sin θ2 = na sin θ3 .
Comparing the two equations yields θ1 = θ3 , so the outgoing ray in the air is parallel to the incoming
ray.
182
P39-5
(a) As was done in Ex. 39-25 above we use the small angle approximation of
sin θ ≈ θ ≈ tan θ
The incident angle is θ; if the light were to go in a straight line we would expect it to strike a
distance y1 beneath the normal on the right hand side. The various distances are related to the
angle by
θ ≈ tan θ ≈ y1 /t.
The light, however, does not go in a straight line, it is refracted according to (the small angle
approximation to) Snell’s law, n1 θ1 = n2 θ2 , which we will simplify further by letting θ1 = θ, n2 = n,
and n1 = 1, θ = nθ2 . The point where the refracted ray does strike is related to the angle by
θ2 ≈ tan θ2 = y2 /t. Combining the three expressions,
y1 = ny2 .
The diﬀerence, y1 − y2 is the vertical distance between the displaced ray and the original ray as
measured on the plate glass. A little algebra yields
y1 − y2
= y1 − y1 /n,
= y1 (1 − 1/n) ,
n−1
= tθ
.
n
The perpendicular distance x is related to this diﬀerence by
cos θ = x/(y1 − y2 ).
In the small angle approximation cos θ ≈ 1 − θ2 /2. If θ is suﬃciently small we can ignore the square
term, and x ≈ y2 − y1 .
(b) Remember to use radians and not degrees whenever the small angle approximation is applied.
Then

x = (1.0 cm)(0.175 rad)

(a) At the top layer,
n1 sin θ1 = sin θ;
at the next layer,
n2 sin θ2 = n1 sin θ1 ;
at the next layer,
n3 sin θ3 = n2 sin θ2 .
Combining all three expressions,
n3 sin θ3 = sin θ.
◦
(b) θ3 = arcsin[sin(50 )/(1.00029)] = 49.98◦ . Then shift is (50◦ ) − (49.98◦ ) = 0.02◦ .
P39-7 The “big idea” of Problem 6 is that when light travels through layers the angle that it
makes in any layer depends only on the incident angle, the index of refraction where that incident
angle occurs, and the index of refraction at the current point.
That means that light which leaves the surface of the runway at 90◦ to the normal will make an
angle
n0 sin 90◦ = n0 (1 + ay) sin θ
183
at some height y above the runway. It is mildly entertaining to note that the value of n0 is unimportant, only the value of a!
The expression

P39-9 (a) Before adding the drop of liquid project the light ray along the angle θ so that θ = 0.
Increase θ slowly until total internal reﬂection occurs at angle θ1 . Then
ng sin θ1 = 1
is the equation which can be solved to ﬁnd ng .
Now put the liquid on the glass and repeat the above process until total internal reﬂection occurs
at angle θ2 . Then
ng sin θ2 = nl .
Note that ng < ng for this method to work.
(b) This is not terribly practical.
P39-10 Let the internal angle at Q be θQ . Then n sin θQ = 1, because it is a critical angle. Let
the internal angle at P be θP . Then θP + θQ = 90◦ . Combine this with the other formula and

P39-11 (a) The fraction of light energy which escapes from the water is dependent on the critical
angle. Light radiates in all directions from the source, but only that which strikes the surface at an

n1 sin θ1 = sin θ.
The beam then travels inside the ﬁber until it hits the cladding interface; it does so at an angle of

n1 sin θc = n2 ,
or if
sin(90◦ − θ1 ) ≥ n2 /n1 ,

P39-15 We can assume the airplane speed is small compared to the speed of light, and use Eq.
39-21. ∆f = 990 Hz; so
|∆f | = f0 u/c = u/λ0 ,
hence u = (990/s)(0.12 m) = 119 m/s. The actual answer for the speed of the airplane is half this
because there were two Doppler shifts: once when the microwaves struck the plane, and one when the
reﬂected beam was received by the station. Hence, the plane approaches with a speed of 59.4 m/s.
187
E40-1 (b) Since i = −o, vi = di/dt = −do/dt = −vo .
(a) In order to change from the frame of reference of the mirror to your own frame of reference
you need to subtract vo from all velocities. Then your velocity is vo − v0 = 0, the mirror is moving
with velocity 0 − vo = −vo and your image is moving with velocity −vo − vo = −2vo .
E40-2 You are 30 cm from the mirror, the image is 10 cm behind the mirror. You need to focus
40 cm away.
E40-3 If the mirror rotates through an angle α then the angle of incidence will increase by an
angle α, and so will the angle of reﬂection. But that means that the angle between the incident
angle and the reﬂected angle has increased by α twice.
E40-4 Sketch a line from Sarah through the right edge of the mirror and then beyond. Sarah can
see any image which is located between that line and the mirror. By similar triangles, the image
of Bernie will be d/2 = (3.0 m)/2 = 1/5 m from the mirror when it becomes visible. Since i = −o,
Bernie will also be 1.5 m from the mirror.
E40-5 The images are fainter than the object. Several sample rays are shown.
E40-6 The image is displaced. The eye would need to look up to see it.
E40-7 The apparent depth of the swimming pool is given by the work done for Exercise 3925, dapp = d/n The water then “appears” to be only 186 cm/1.33 = 140 cm deep. The apparent
distance between the light and the mirror is then 250 cm + 140 cm = 390 cm; consequently the
image of the light is 390 cm beneath the surface of the mirror.
E40-8 Three. There is a single direct image in each mirror and one more image of an image in
one of the mirrors.
188
E40-9 We want to know over what surface area of the mirror are rays of light reﬂected from the
object into the eye. By similar triangles the diameter of the pupil and the diameter of the part of
the mirror (d) which reﬂects light into the eye are related by
(5.0 mm)
d
=

(10 cm)
(24 cm) + (10 cm)
which has solution d = 1.47 mm The area of the circle on the mirror is
A = π(1.47 mm)2 /4 = 1.7 mm2 .
E40-10 (a) Seven; (b) Five; and (c) Two. This is a problem of symmetry.
E40-11 Seven. Three images are the ones from Exercise 8. But each image has an image in the
ceiling mirror. That would make a total of six, except that you also have an image in the ceiling
mirror (look up, eh?). So the total is seven!
E40-12 A point focus is not formed. The envelope of rays is called the caustic. You can see a
similar eﬀect when you allow light to reﬂect oﬀ of a spoon onto a table.
E40-13 The image is magniﬁed by a factor of 2.7, so the image distance is 2.7 times farther from
the mirror than the object. An important question to ask is whether or not the image is real or
virtual. If it is a virtual image it is behind the mirror and someone looking at the mirror could see
it. If it were a real image it would be in front of the mirror, and the man, who serves as the object
and is therefore closer to the mirror than the image, would not be able to see it.
So we shall assume that the image is virtual. The image distance is then a negative number.

1/i = 1/f − 1/o = 1/(20) − 1/(10) = 1/(−20);
m = −i/o = −(−20)/(10) = 2; the image is virtual and upright.
(b) m = +1 for plane mirrors only; r = ∞ for ﬂat surface; f = ∞/2 = ∞; i = −o = −10; the
image is virtual and upright.
(c) If f is positive the mirror is concave; r = 2f = +40;
1/i = 1/f − 1/o = 1/(20) − 1/(30) = 1/(60);
m = −i/o = −(60)/(30) = −2; the image is real and inverted.
(d) If m is negative then the image is real and inverted; only Concave mirrors produce real images
(from real objects); i = −mo = −(−0.5)(60) = 30;
1/f = 1/o + 1/i = 1/(30) + 1/(60) = 1/(20);
r = 2f = +40.
(e) If r is negative the mirror is convex; f = r/2 = (−40)/2 = −20;
1/o = 1/f − 1/i = 1/(−20) − 1/(−10) = 1/(20);
m = −(−10)/(20) = 0.5; the image is virtual and upright.
(f) If m is positive the image is virtual and upright; if m is less than one the image is reduced,
but only convex mirrors produce reduced virtual images (from real objects); f = −20 for convex
mirrors; r = 2f = −40; let i = −mo = −o/10, then
1/f = 1/o + 1/i = 1/o − 10/o = −9/o,
so o = −9f = −9(−20) = 180; i = −o/10 = −(180)/10 = −18.
(g) r is negative for convex mirrors, so r = −40; f = r/2 = −20; convex mirrors produce only
virtual upright images (from real objects); so i is negative; and
1/o = 1/f − 1/i = 1/(−20) − 1/(−4) = 1/(5);
m = −i/o = −(−4)/(5) = 0.8.
(h) Inverted images are real; only concave mirrors produce real images (from real objects);
inverted images have negative m; i = −mo = −(−0.5)(24) = 12;
1/f = 1/o + 1/i = 1/(24) + 1/(12) = 1/(8);
r = 2f = 16.

E40-16 Use the angle deﬁnitions provided by Eq. 40-8. From triangle OaI we have
α + γ = 2θ,
while from triangle IaC we have
β + θ = γ.

α − γ = −2β.

E40-17 (a) Consider the point A. Light from this point travels along the line ABC and will be
parallel to the horizontal center line from the center of the cylinder. Since the tangent to a circle
deﬁnes the outer limit of the intersection with a line, this line must describe the apparent size.
(b) The angle of incidence of ray AB is given by
sin θ1 = r/R.
The angle of refraction of ray BC is given by
sin θ2 = r∗ /R.
Snell’s law, and a little algebra, yields
n1 sin θ1

r∗

In the last line we used the fact that n2 = 1, because it is in the air, and n1 = n, the index of
refraction of the glass.
E40-18 This problem requires repeated application of (n2 − n1 )/r = n1 /o + n2 /i. All dimensioned
variables below (r, i, o) are measured in centimeters.
(a)
(1.5) − (1.0) (1.0)

= −0.08333,

so i = (1.5)/(−0.08333) = −18, and the image is virtual.
(b)
(1.0)
(1.5)

= −0.015385,
(10)
(−13)
so r = (1.5 − 1.0)/(−0.015385) = −32.5, and the image is virtual.
(c)
(1.5) − (1.0)
(1.5)
−
= 0.014167,
(30)
(600)
191
so o = (1.0)/(0.014167) = 71. The image was real since i > 0.
(d) Rearrange the formula to solve for n2 , then

which has any solution for n2 ! Since i < 0 the image is virtual.
(e)
(1.5) (1.0)
+
= −0.016667,
(10)
(−6)
so r = (1.0 − 1.5)/(−0.016667) = 30, and the image is virtual.
(f)
(1.0)
(1.0) − (1.5)
−

(−30)
(−7.5)
so o = (1.5)/(0.15) = 10. The image was virtual since i < 0.
(g)
(1.0) − (1.5) (1.5)
−
= −3.81×10−2 ,
(30)
(70)
so i = (1.0)/(−3.81×10−2 ) = −26, and the image is virtual.
(h) Solving Eq. 40-10 for n2 yields
n2 = n1
so
n2 = (1.5)
1/o + 1/r
,
1/r − 1/i
1/(100) + 1/(−30)
= 1.0
1/(−30) − 1/(600)
and the image is real.
E40-19 (b) If the beam is small we can use Eq. 40-10. Parallel incoming rays correspond to an
object at inﬁnity. Solving for n2 yields
n2 = n1
1/o + 1/r
,
1/r − 1/i
so if o → ∞ and i = 2r, then
n2 = (1.0)
1/∞ + 1/r
= 2.0
1/r − 1/2r
(c) There is no solution if i = r!

so the image is located 12 cm from the thin lens, on the same side as the object.
E40-22 For a double convex lens r1 > 0 and r2 < 0 (see Fig. 40-21 and the accompanying text).
Then the problem states that r2 = −r1 /2. The lens maker’s equation can be applied to get

f

r2
=
3(n − 1)

r1
so r1 = 3(n − 1)f = 3(1.5 − 1)(60 mm) = 90 mm, and r2 = −45 mm.
E40-23 The object distance is essentially o = ∞, so 1/f = 1/o + 1/i implies f = i, and the image
forms at the focal point. In reality, however, the object distance is not inﬁnite, so the magniﬁcation
is given by m = −i/o ≈ −f /o, where o is the Earth/Sun distance. The size of the image is then
hi = ho f /o = 2(6.96×108 m)(0.27 m)/(1.50×1011 m) = 2.5 mm.
The factor of two is because the sun’s radius is given, and we need the diameter!
E40-24 (a) The ﬂat side has r2 = ∞, so 1/f = (n − 1)/r, where r is the curved side. Then
f = (0.20 m)/(1.5 − 1) = 0.40 m.
(b) 1/i = 1/f − 1/o = 1/(0.40 m) − 1/(0.40 m) = 0. Then i is ∞.
E40-25 (a) 1/f = (1.5 − 1)[1/(0.4 m) − 1/(−0.4 m)] = 1/(0.40 m).
(b) 1/f = (1.5 − 1)[1/(∞) − 1/(−0.4 m)] = 1/(0.80 m).
(c) 1/f = (1.5 − 1)[1/(0.4 m) − 1/(0.6 m)] = 1/(2.40 m).
(d) 1/f = (1.5 − 1)[1/(−0.4 m) − 1/(0.4 m)] = 1/(−0.40 m).
(e) 1/f = (1.5 − 1)[1/(∞) − 1/(0.8 m)] = 1/(−0.80 m).
(f) 1/f = (1.5 − 1)[1/(0.6 m) − 1/(0.4 m)] = 1/(−2.40 m).
E40-26 (a) 1/f = (n − 1)[1/(−r) − 1/r], so 1/f = 2(1 − n)/r. 1/i = 1/f − 1/o so if o = r, then
1/i = 2(1 − n)/r − 1/r = (1 − 2n)/r,
so i = r/(1 − 2n). For n > 0.5 the image is virtual.
(b) For n > 0.5 the image is virtual; the magniﬁcation is
m = −i/o = −r/(1 − 2n)/r = 1/(2n − 1).

There is only one solution to this problem, but sometimes there are two, and other times there are
none!
E40-30 (a) Real images (from real objects) are only produced by converging lenses.
(b) Since hi = −h0 /2, then i = o/2. But d = i+o = o+o/2 = 3o/2, so o = 2(0.40 m)/3 = 0.267 m,
and i = 0.133 m.
(c) 1/f = 1/o + 1/i = 1/(0.267 m) + 1/(0.133 m) = 1/(0.0889 m).
E40-31 Step through the exercise one lens at a time. The object is 40 cm to the left of a
converging lens with a focal length of +20 cm. The image from this ﬁrst lens will be located by

o
(20 cm) (40 cm)
40 cm
so i = 40 cm. Since i is positive it is a real image, and it is located to the right of the converging
lens. This image becomes the object for the diverging lens.
The image from the converging lens is located 40 cm - 10 cm from the diverging lens, but it is
located on the wrong side: the diverging lens is “in the way” so the rays which would form the image
hit the diverging lens before they have a chance to form the image. That means that the real image
from the converging lens is a virtual object in the diverging lens, so that the object distance for the
diverging lens is o = −30 cm.
The image formed by the diverging lens is located by solving

o
(−15 cm) (−30 cm)
−30 cm
or i = −30 cm. This would mean the image formed by the diverging lens would be a virtual image,
and would be located to the left of the diverging lens.
The image is virtual, so it is upright. The magniﬁcation from the ﬁrst lens is
m1 = −i/o = −(40 cm)/(40 cm)) = −1;
195
the magniﬁcation from the second lens is
m2 = −i/o = −(−30 cm)/(−30 cm)) = −1;
which implies an overall magniﬁcation of m1 m2 = 1.
E40-32 (a) The parallel rays of light which strike the lens of focal length f will converge on the
focal point. This point will act like an object for the second lens. If the second lens is located a
distance L from the ﬁrst then the object distance for the second lens will be L − f . Note that this
will be a negative value for L < f , which means the object is virtual. The image will form at a point
1/i = 1/(−f ) − 1/(L − f ) = L/f (f − L).
Note that i will be positive if L < f , so the rays really do converge on a point.
(b) The same equation applies, except switch the sign of f . Then
1/i = 1/(f ) − 1/(L − f ) = L/f (L − f ).
This is negative for L < f , so there is no real image, and no converging of the light rays.
(c) If L = 0 then i = ∞, which means the rays coming from the second lens are parallel.
E40-33 The image from the converging lens is found from

i1
(0.58 m) (1.12 m)
1.20 m
so i1 = 1.20 m, and the image is real and inverted.
This real image is 1.97 m − 1.20 m = 0.77 m in front of the plane mirror. It acts as an object
for the mirror. The mirror produces a virtual image 0.77 m behind the plane mirror. This image is
upright relative to the object which formed it, which was inverted relative to the original object.
This second image is 1.97 m + 0.77 m = 2.74 m away from the lens. This second image acts as an
object for the lens, the image of which is found from

i3
(0.58 m) (2.74 m)
0.736 m
so i3 = 0.736 m, and the image is real and inverted relative to the object which formed it, which was
inverted relative to the original object. So this image is actually upright.
E40-34 (a) The ﬁrst lens forms a real image at a location given by
1/i = 1/f − 1/o = 1/(0.1 m) − 1/(0.2 m) = 1/(0.2 m).
The image and object distance are the same, so the image has a magniﬁcation of 1. This image is
0.3 m − 0.2 m = 0.1 m from the second lens. The second lens forms an image at a location given by
1/i = 1/f − 1/o = 1/(0.125 m) − 1/(0.1 m) = 1/(−0.5 m).
Note that this puts the ﬁnal image at the location of the original object! The image is magniﬁed by
a factor of (0.5 m)/(0.1 m) = 5.
(c) The image is virtual, but inverted.
196
E40-35 If the two lenses “pass” the same amount of light then the solid angle subtended by each
lens as seen from the respective focal points must be the same. If we assume the lenses have the
same round shape then we can write this as do /f o = de /f e . Then

or de = (72 mm)/36 = 2 mm.
E40-36 (a) f = (0.25 m)/(200) ≈ 1.3 mm. Then 1/f = (n − 1)(2/r) can be used to ﬁnd r;
r = 2(n − 1)f = 2(1.5 − 1)(1.3 mm) = 1.3 mm.
(b) The diameter would be twice the radius. In eﬀect, these were tiny glass balls.
E40-37 (a) In Fig. 40-46(a) the image is at the focal point. This means that in Fig. 40-46(b)
i = f = 2.5 cm, even though f = f . Solving,

(c) m = −(17.3)/(5.5) = −3.1.
(d) mθ = (25 cm)/(7.7 cm) = 3.2.
(e) M = mmθ = −10.
E40-39 Microscope magniﬁcation is given by Eq. 40-33. We need to ﬁrst ﬁnd the focal length
of the objective lens before we can use this formula. We are told in the text, however, that the
microscope is constructed so the at the object is placed just beyond the focal point of the objective
lens, then f ob ≈ 12.0 mm. Similarly, the intermediate image is formed at the focal point of the
eyepiece, so f ey ≈ 48.0 mm. The magniﬁcation is then
m=
−s(250 mm)
(285 mm)(250 mm)
=−
= 124.
f ob f ey
(12.0 mm)(48.0 mm)
A more accurate answer can be found by calculating the real focal length of the objective lens, which
is 11.4 mm, but since there is a huge uncertainty in the near point of the eye, I see no point in trying
to be more accurate than this.
P40-1 The old intensity is Io = P/4πd2 , where P is the power of the point source. With the
mirror in place there is an additional amount of light which needs to travel a total distance of 3d
in order to get to the screen, so it contributes an additional P/4π(3d)2 to the intensity. The new
intensity is then
In = P/4πd2 + P/4π(3d)2 = (10/9)P/4πd2 = (10/9)Io .

P40-3 (b) There are two ends to the object of length L, one of these ends is a distance o1 from
the mirror, and the other is a distance o2 from the mirror. The images of the two ends will be
located at i1 and i2 .
Since we are told that the object has a short length L we will assume that a diﬀerential approach
to the problem is in order. Then
L = ∆o = o1 − o2 and L = ∆i = i1 − i2 ,

P40-4 The left surface produces an image which is found from n/i = (n − 1)/R − 1/o, but since
the incoming rays are parallel we take o = ∞ and the expression simpliﬁes to i = nR/(n − 1). This
image is located a distance o = 2R − i = (n − 2)R/(n − 1) from the right surface, and the image
produced by this surface can be found from
1/i = (1 − n)/(−R) − n/o = (n − 1)/R − n(n − 1)/(n − 2)R = 2(1 − n)/(n − 2)R.
Then i = (n − 2)R/2(n − 1).
P40-5 The “1” in Eq. 40-18 is actually nair ; the assumption is that the thin lens is in the air. If

This last expression is a quadratic, and we would expect to get two solutions for o. These solutions
will be of the form “something” plus/minus “something else”; the distance between the two locations
for o will evidently be twice the “something else”, which is then
d = o+ − o− =
(−D)2 − 4(f D) =
D(D − 4f ).
(b) The ratio of the image sizes is m+ /m− , or i+ o− /i− o+ . Now it seems we must ﬁnd the actual
values of o+ and o− . From the quadratic in part (a) we have

P40-9 (a) The angular size of each lens is the same when viewed from the shared focal point. This
means W1 /f1 = W2 /f2 , or
W2 = (f2 /f1 )W1 .
(b) Pass the light through the diverging lens ﬁrst; choose the separation of the lenses so that
the focal point of the converging lens is at the same location as the focal point of the diverging lens
which is on the opposite side of the diverging lens.
(c) Since I ∝ 1/A, where A is the area of the beam, we have I ∝ 1/W 2 . Consequently,
I2 /I1 = (W1 /W2 )2 = (f1 /f2 )2

P40-11 We’ll solve the problem by ﬁnding out what happens if you put an object in front of the
combination of lenses.
Let the object distance be o1 . The ﬁrst lens will create an image at i1 , where

This image will act as an object for the second lens.
If the ﬁrst image is real (i1 positive) then the image will be on the “wrong” side of the second
lens, and as such the real image will act like a virtual object. In short, o2 = −i1 will give the correct
sign to the object distance when the image from the ﬁrst lens acts like an object for the second lens.
The image formed by the second lens will then be at

Which is at the same point as i1 !. This means it will act as an object o3 in the lens, and, reversing

images formed; each is real, same size, and inverted. Three inversions nets an inverted image. The
ﬁnal image at O is therefore inverted.

P40-15 We want the maximum linear motion of the train to move no more than 0.75 mm on the
ﬁlm; this means we want to ﬁnd the size of an object on the train that will form a 0.75 mm image.
The object distance is much larger than the focal length, so the image distance is approximately
equal to the focal length. The magniﬁcation is then m = −i/o = (3.6 cm)/(44.5 m) = −0.00081.
The size of an object on the train that would produce a 0.75 mm image on the ﬁlm is then
0.75 mm/0.00081 = 0.93 m.
How much time does it take the train to move that far?
t=

= 25 ms.
(135 km/hr)(1/3600 hr/s)
P40-16 (a) The derivation leading to Eq. 40-34 depends only on the fact that two converging
optical devices are used. Replacing the objective lens with an objective mirror doesn’t change
anything except the ray diagram.
(b) The image will be located very close to the focal point, so |m| ≈ f /o, and

length, of the mirror!

E41-1
In this problem we look for the location of the third-order bright fringe, so
θ = sin−1
mλ
(3)(554 × 10−9 m)
= sin−1
= 12.5◦ = 0.22 rad.
d
(7.7 × 10−6 m)
E41-2 d1 sin θ = λ gives the ﬁrst maximum; d2 sin θ = 2λ puts the second maximum at the location
of the ﬁrst. Divide the second expression by the ﬁrst and d2 = 2d1 . This is a 100% increase in d.
E41-3 ∆y = λD/d = (512×10−9 m)(5.4 m)/(1.2×10−3 m) = 2.3×10−3 m.
E41-4 d = λ/ sin θ = (592×10−9 m)/ sin(1.00◦ ) = 3.39×10−5 m.
E41-5 Since the angles are very small, we can assume sin θ ≈ θ for angles measured in radians.
If the interference fringes are 0.23◦ apart, then the angular position of the ﬁrst bright fringe
is 0.23◦ away from the central maximum. Eq. 41-1, written with the small angle approximation
in mind, is dθ = λ for this ﬁrst (m = 1) bright fringe. The goal is to ﬁnd the wavelength which
increases θ by 10%. To do this we must increase the right hand side of the equation by 10%, which
means increasing λ by 10%. The new wavelength will be λ = 1.1λ = 1.1(589 nm) = 650 nm
E41-6 Immersing the apparatus in water will shorten the wavelengths to λ/n. Start with d sin θ0 =
λ; and then ﬁnd θ from d sin θ = λ/n. Combining the two expressions,
θ = arcsin[sin θ0 /n] = arcsin[sin(0.20◦ )/(1.33)] = 0.15◦ .
E41-7 The third-order fringe for a wavelength λ will be located at y = 3λD/d, where y is measured
from the central maximum. Then ∆y is
y1 − y2 = 3(λ1 − λ2 )D/d = 3(612×10−9 m − 480×10−9 m)(1.36 m)/(5.22×10−3 m) = 1.03×10−4 m.
E41-8 θ = arctan(y/D);
λ = d sin θ = (0.120 m) sin[arctan(0.180 m/2.0 m)] = 1.08×10−2 m.
Then f = v/λ = (0.25 m/s)/(1.08×10−2 m) = 23 Hz.

A variation of Eq. 41-3 is in order:

(m = 9). Then
λ(50 cm)
18 mm = y9 − y0 = 9
,
(0.15 mm)
or λ = 6×10−4 mm = 600 nm.
E41-10 The “maximum” maxima is given by the integer part of
m = d sin(90◦ )/λ = (2.0 m)/(0.50 m) = 4.
Since there is no integer part, the “maximum” maxima occurs at 90◦ . These are point sources
radiating in both directions, so there are two central maxima, and four maxima each with m = 1,
m = 2, and m = 3. But the m = 4 values overlap at 90◦ , so there are only two. The total is 16.
203
E41-11
This ﬁgure should explain it well enough.
E41-12 ∆y = λD/d = (589×10−9 m)(1.13 m)/(0.18×10−3 m) = 3.70×10−3 m.
E41-13 Consider Fig. 41-5, and solve it exactly for the information given. For the tenth bright
fringe r1 = 10λ + r2 . There are two important triangles:
2
r2 = D2 + (y − d/2)2
and
2
r1 = D2 + (y + d/2)2
Solving to eliminate r2 ,
D2 + (y + d/2)2 =
D2 + (y − d/2)2 + 10λ.
This has solution
y = 5λ
4D2 + d2 − 100λ2

E41-14 (a) ∆x = c/∆t = (3.00×108 m/s)/(1×10−8 s) = 3 m.
(b) No.

E41-15 Leading by 90◦ is the same as leading by a quarter wavelength, since there are 360◦ in a
circle. The distance from A to the detector is 100 m longer than the distance from B to the detector.
Since the wavelength is 400 m, 100 m corresponds to a quarter wavelength.
So a wave peak starts out from source A and travels to the detector. When it has traveled a
quarter wavelength a wave peak leaves source B. But when the wave peak from A has traveled
a quarter wavelength it is now located at the same distance from the detector as source B, which
means the two wave peaks arrive at the detector at the same time.
They are in phase.
E41-16 The ﬁrst dark fringe involves waves π radians out of phase. Each dark fringe after that
involves an additional 2π radians of phase diﬀerence. So the mth dark fringe has a phase diﬀerence
of (2m + 1)π radians.

E41-18 The resultant quantity will be of the form A sin(ωt + β). Solve the problem by looking at
t = 0; then y1 = 0, but x1 = 10, and y2 = 8 sin 30◦ = 4 and x2 = 8 cos 30 = 6.93. Then the resultant
is of length
A = (4)2 + (10 + 6.93)2 = 17.4,
and has an angle β given by
β = arctan(4/16.93) = 13.3◦ .
E41-19 (a) We want to know the path length diﬀerence of the two sources to the detector.
Assume the detector is at x and the second source is at y = d. The distance S1 D is x; the
√
√
distance S2 D is x2 + d2 . The diﬀerence is x2 + d2 − x. If this diﬀerence is an integral number
of wavelengths then we have a maximum; if instead it is a half integral number of wavelengths we
have a minimum. For part (a) we are looking for the maxima, so we set the path length diﬀerence
equal to mλ and solve for xm .
x2 + d2 − xm

2mλ
The ﬁrst question we need to ask is what happens when m = 0. The right hand side becomes
indeterminate, so we need to go back to the ﬁrst line in the above derivation. If m = 0 then d2 = 0;
since this is not true in this problem, there is no m = 0 solution.
In fact, we may have even more troubles. xm needs to be a positive value, so the maximum
allowed value for m will be given by
m2 λ2 < d2 ,
m < d/λ = (4.17 m)/(1.06 m) = 3.93;
but since m is an integer, m = 3 is the maximum value.
205
The ﬁrst three maxima occur at m = 3, m = 2, and m = 1. These maxima are located at
x3

(4.17 m)2 − (3)2 (1.06 m)2

= 3.04 m,
2(2)(1.06 m)
(4.17 m)2 − (1)2 (1.06 m)2
= 7.67 m.
2(1)(1.06 m)
=
=
Interestingly enough, as m decreases the maxima get farther away!
(b) The closest maxima to the origin occurs at x = ±6.94 cm. What then is x = 0? It is a local
minimum, but the intensity isn’t zero. It corresponds to a point where the path length diﬀerence is
3.93 wavelengths. It should be half an integer to be a complete minimum.
E41-20 The resultant can be written in the form A sin(ωt + β). Consider t = 0. The three
components can be written as
10 sin 0◦ = 0,
14 sin 26◦ = 6.14,
4.7 sin(−41◦ ) = −3.08,
0 + 6.14 − 3.08 = 3.06.

and
Then A =
(3.06)2 + (26.2)2 = 26.4 and β = arctan(3.06/26.2) = 6.66◦ .
E41-21 The order of the indices of refraction is the same as in Sample Problem 41-4, so
d = λ/4n = (620 nm)/4(1.25) = 124 nm.
E41-22 Follow the example in Sample Problem 41-3.

m − 1/2
m − 1/2
m − 1/2
The result is only in the visible range when m = 3, so λ = 492 nm.
E41-23 (a) Light from above the oil slick can be reﬂected back up from the top of the oil layer
or from the bottom of the oil layer. For both reﬂections the light is reﬂecting oﬀ a substance with
a higher index of refraction so both reﬂected rays pick up a phase change of π. Since both waves
have this phase the equation for a maxima is
1
1
2d + λn + λn = mλn .
2
2
Remember that λn = λ/n, where n is the index of refraction of the thin ﬁlm. Then 2nd = (m − 1)λ
is the condition for a maxima. We know n = 1.20 and d = 460 nm. We don’t know m or λ. It might
206
seem as if there isn’t enough information to solve the problem, but we can. We need to ﬁnd the
wavelength in the visible range (400 nm to 700 nm) which has an integer m. Trial and error might
work. If λ = 700 nm, then m is
m=
2nd
2(1.20)(460 nm)
+1=
+ 1 = 2.58
λ
(700 nm)
But m needs to be an integer. If we increase m to 3, then
λ=
2(1.20)(460 nm)
= 552 nm
(3 − 1)
which is in the visible range. So the oil slick will appear green.
(b) One of the most profound aspects of thin ﬁlm interference is that wavelengths which are
maximally reﬂected are minimally transmitted, and vice versa. Finding the maximally transmitted
wavelengths is the same as ﬁnding the minimally reﬂected wavelengths, or looking for values of m
that are half integer.
The most obvious choice is m = 3.5, and then
λ=
2(1.20)(460 nm)
= 442 nm.
(3.5 − 1)
E41-24 The condition for constructive interference is 2nd = (m − 1/2)λ. Assuming a minimum
value of m = 1 one ﬁnds
d = λ/4n = (560 nm)/4(2.0) = 70 nm.
E41-25 The top surface contributes a phase diﬀerence of π, so the phase diﬀerence because of the
thickness is 2π, or one complete wavelength. Then 2d = λ/n, or d = (572 nm)/2(1.33) = 215 nm.
E41-26 The wave reﬂected from the ﬁrst surface picks up a phase shift of π. The wave which is
reﬂected oﬀ of the second surface travels an additional path diﬀerence of 2d. The interference will
be bright if 2d + λn /2 = mλn results in m being an integer.
m = 2nd/λ + 1/2 = 2(1.33)(1.21×10−6 m)/(585×10−9 m) + 1/2 = 6.00,
so the interference is bright.
E41-27 As with the oil on the water in Ex. 41-23, both the light which reﬂects oﬀ of the acetone
and the light which reﬂects oﬀ of the glass undergoes a phase shift of π. Then the maxima for
reﬂection are given by 2nd = (m − 1)λ. We don’t know m, but at some integer value of m we have
λ = 700 nm. If m is increased by exactly 1 then we are at a minimum of λ = 600 nm. Consequently,
2
2(1.25)d = (m − 1)(700 nm) and 2(1.25)d = (m − 1/2)(600 nm),
we can set these two expressions equal to each other to ﬁnd m,
(m − 1)(700 nm) = (m − 1/2)(600 nm),
so m = 4. Then we can ﬁnd the thickness,
d = (4 − 1)(700 nm)/2(1.25) = 840 nm.
207
E41-28 The wave reﬂected from the ﬁrst surface picks up a phase shift of π. The wave which is
reﬂected oﬀ of the second surface travels an additional path diﬀerence of 2d. The interference will
be bright if 2d + λn /2 = mλn results in m being an integer. Then 2nd = (m − 1/2)λ1 is bright, and
2nd = mλ2 is dark. Divide one by the other and (m − 1/2)λ1 = mλ2 , so
m = λ1 /2(λ1 − λ2 ) = (600 nm)/2(600 nm − 450 nm) = 2,
then d = mλ2 /2n = (2)(450 nm)/2(1.33) = 338 nm.
E41-29 Constructive interference happens when 2d = (m − 1/2)λ. The minimum value for m is
m = 1; the maximum value is the integer portion of 2d/λ+1/2 = 2(4.8×10−5 m)/(680×10−9 m)+1/2 =
141.67, so mmax = 141. There are then 141 bright bands.
E41-30 (a) A half wavelength phase shift occurs for both the air/water interface and the water/oil
interface, so if d = 0 the two reﬂected waves are in phase. It will be bright!
(b) 2nd = 3λ, or d = 3(475 nm)/2(1.20) = 594 nm.
E41-31 There is a phase shift on one surface only, so the bright bands are given by 2nd = (m −
1/2)λ. Let the ﬁrst band be given by 2nd1 = (m1 − 1/2)λ. The last bright band is then given by
2nd2 = (m1 + 9 − 1/2)λ. Subtract the two equations to get the change in thickness:
∆d = 9λ/2n = 9(630 nm)/2(1.50) = 1.89 µm.
E41-32 Apply Eq. 41-21: 2nd = mλ. In one case we have
2nair = (4001)λ,
in the other,
2nvac = (4000)λ.
Equating, nair = (4001)/(4000) = 1.00025.

(n + 19.5)/(n − 0.5) = (0.368 cm/0.162 cm)2 = 5.16
which can be rearranged to yield
n=
19.5 + 5.16 × 0.5
= 5.308.
5.16 − 1
Oops! That should be an integer, shouldn’t it? The above work is correct, which means that there
really aren’t bright bands at the speciﬁed locations. I’m just going to gloss over that fact and solve
for R using the value of m = 5.308. Then
R = r2 /(m − 1/2)λ = (0.162 cm)2 /(5.308 − 0.5)(546 nm) = 1.00 m.
Well, at least we got the answer which is in the back of the book...
E41-36 Pretend the ship is a two point source emitter, one h above the water, and one h below
the water. The one below the water is out of phase by half a wavelength. Then d sin θ = λ, where
d = 2h, gives the angle for theta for the ﬁrst minimum.
λ/2h = (3.43 m)/2(23 m) = 7.46×10−2 = sin θ ≈ H/D,
so D = (160 m)/(7.46×10−2 ) = 2.14 km.
E41-37 The phase diﬀerence is 2π/λn times the path diﬀerence which is 2d, so
φ = 4πd/λn = 4πnd/λ.
We are given that d = 100×10−9 m and n = 1.38.

E41-39 When M2 moves through a distance of λ/2 a fringe has will be produced, destroyed, and

(b) Placing the cellophane over one slit will cause the interference pattern to shift to the left or
right, but not disappear or change size. How does it shift? Since we are picking up 2.5 waves then
we are, in eﬀect, swapping bright fringes for dark fringes.
P41-2
The change in the optical path length is d − d/n, so 7λ/n = d(1 − 1/n), or

We actually did this problem in Exercise 41-27, although slightly diﬀerently. One maxi2(1.32)d = (m − 1/2)(679 nm),
the other is
2(1.32)d = (m + 1/2)(485 nm).
Set these equations equal to each other,
(m − 1/2)(679 nm) = (m + 1/2)(485 nm),
and ﬁnd m = 3. Then the thickness is
d = (3 − 1/2)(679 nm)/2(1.32) = 643 nm.
P41-8
(a) Since we are concerned with transmission there is a phase shift for two rays, so
2d = mλn
The minimum thickness occurs when m = 1; solving for d yields
d=

2(1.55)
(b) The wavelengths are diﬀerent, so the other parts have diﬀering phase diﬀerences.
(c) The nearest destructive interference wavelength occurs when m = 1.5, or
λ = 2nd = 2(1.55)1.5(169×10−9 m) = 393×10−9 m.
This is blue-violet.
211
P41-9 It doesn’t matter if we are looking at bright are dark bands. It doesn’t even matter if we
concern ourselves with phase shifts. All that cancels out. Consider 2δd = δmλ; then
δd = (10)(480 nm)/2 = 2.4 µm.
P41-10
(a) Apply 2d = mλ. Then
d = (7)(600×10−9 m)/2 = 2100×10−9 m.
(b) When water seeps in it introduces an extra phase shift. Point A becomes then a bright fringe,
and the equation for the number of bright fringes is 2nd = mλ. Solving for m,
m = 2(1.33)(2100×10−9 m)/(600×10−9 m) = 9.3;
this means that point B is almost, but not quite, a dark fringe, and there are nine of them.

E42-1 λ = a sin θ = (0.022 mm) sin(1.8◦ ) = 6.91×10−7 m.
E42-2 a = λ/ sin θ = (0.10×10−9 m)/ sin(0.12×10−3 rad/2) = 1.7 µm.
E42-3 (a) This is a valid small angle approximation problem: the distance between the points
on the screen is much less than the distance to the screen. Then
θ≈
(0.0162 m)
= 7.5 × 10−3 rad.
(2.16 m)
(b) The diﬀraction minima are described by Eq. 42-3,
a sin θ = mλ,
a sin(7.5 × 10 rad) = (2)(441 × 10−9 m),
a = 1.18 × 10−4 m.
−3
E42-4 a = λ/ sin θ = (633×10−9 m)/ sin(1.97◦ /2) = 36.8 µm.
E42-5 (a) We again use Eq. 42-3, but we will need to throw in a few extra subscripts to
distinguish between which wavelength we are dealing with. If the angles match, then so will the sine
of the angles. We then have sin θa,1 = sin θb,2 or, using Eq. 42-3,
(1)λa
(2)λb
=
,
a
a
from which we can deduce λa = 2λb .
(b) Will any other minima coincide? We want to solve for the values of ma and mb that will be
integers and have the same angle. Using Eq. 42-3 one more time,
mb λ b
ma λa
=
,
a
a
and then substituting into this the relationship between the wavelengths, ma = mb /2. whenever mb
is an even integer ma is an integer. Then all of the diﬀraction minima from λa are overlapped by a
minima from λb .
E42-6 The angle is given by sin θ = 2λ/a. This is a small angle, so we can use the small angle
approximation of sin θ = y/D. Then
y = 2Dλ/a = 2(0.714 m)(593×10−9 m)/(420×10−6 m) = 2.02 mm.
E42-7 Small angles, so y/D = sin θ = λ/a. Then
a = Dλ/y = (0.823 m)(546×10−9 m)/(5.20×10−3 m/2) = 1.73×10−4 m.
E42-8 (b) Small angles, so ∆y/D = ∆mλ/a. Then
a = ∆mDλ/∆y = (5 − 1)(0.413 m)(546×10−9 m)/(0.350×10−3 m) = 2.58 mm.
(a) θ = arcsin(λ/a) = arcsin[(546×10−9 m)/(2.58 mm)] = 1.21×10−2◦ .
E42-9 Small angles, so ∆y/D = ∆mλ/a. Then
∆y = ∆mDλ/a = (2 − 1)(2.94 m)(589×10−9 m)/(1.16×10−3 m) = 1.49×10−3 m.
214
E42-10 Doubling the width of the slit results in a narrowing of the diﬀraction pattern. Since the
width of the central maximum is eﬀectively cut in half, then there is twice the energy in half the
space, producing four times the intensity.
E42-11
(a) This is a small angle approximation problem, so
θ = (1.13 cm)/(3.48 m) = 3.25 × 10−3 rad.
(b) A convenient measure of the phase diﬀerence, α is related to θ through Eq. 42-7,

E42-12 Consider Fig. 42-11; the angle with the vertical is given by (π − φ)/2. For Fig. 42-10(d)
the circle has wrapped once around onto itself so the angle with the vertical is (3π −φ)/2. Substitute
α into this expression and the angel against the vertical is 3π/2 − α.
Use the result from Problem 42-3 that tan α = α for the maxima. The lowest non-zero solution
is α = 4.49341 rad. The angle against the vertical is then 0.21898 rad, or 12.5◦ .

d

1.22(540 × 10−9 )
(4.90 × 10−3 m)

(b) The linear separation is y = θD = (1.34 × 10−4 rad)(163×103 m) = 21.9 m.
E42-15 (a) Rayleigh’s criterion for resolving images (Eq. 42-11) requires that two objects have

1.22(562 × 10−9 )
(5.00 × 10−3 m)

(b) Once again, this is a small angle, so we can use the small angle approximation to ﬁnd the
distance to the car. In that case θR = y/D, where y is the headlight separation and D the distance
to the car. Solving,
D = y/θR = (1.42 m)/(1.37 × 10−4 rad) = 1.04 × 104 m,
or about six or seven miles.
215
E42-16 y/D = 1.22λ/a; or
D = (5.20×10−3 m)(4.60×10−3 /m)/1.22(542×10−9 m) = 36.2 m.

1.22(565 × 10−9 m)

The smallest objects resolvable on the Moon’s surface by this telescope have a size y where
y = DθR = (3.84 × 108 m)(1.36 × 10−7 rad) = 52.2 m
E42-18 y/D = 1.22λ/a; or
y = 1.22(1.57×10−2 m)(6.25×103 m)/(2.33 m) = 51.4 m
E42-19 y/D = 1.22λ/a; or
D = (4.8×10−2 m)(4.3×10−3 /m)/1.22(0.12×10−9 m) = 1.4×106 m.
E42-20 y/D = 1.22λ/a; or
d = 1.22(550×10−9 m)(160×103 m)/(0.30 m) = 0.36 m.
E42-21
Using Eq. 42-11, we ﬁnd the minimum resolvable angular separation is given by
θR = sin−1
1.22λ
d
= sin−1
1.22(475 × 10−9 m)
(4.4 × 10−3 m)
= 1.32 × 10−4 rad
The dots are 2 mm apart, so we want to stand a distance D away such that
D > y/θR = (2 × 10−3 m)/(1.32 × 10−4 rad) = 15 m.
E42-22 y/D = 1.22λ/a; or
y = 1.22(500×10−9 m)(354×103 m)/(9.14 m/2) = 4.73×10−2 m.
E42-23 (a) λ = v/f . Now use Eq. 42-11:
θ = arcsin 1.22
(1450 m/s)
(25×103 Hz)(0.60 m)
= 6.77◦ .
(b) Following the same approach,
θ = arcsin 1.22
(1450 m/s)
(1×103 Hz)(0.60 m)
has no real solution, so there is no minimum.
216
E42-24 (a) λ = v/f . Now use Eq. 42-11:
θ = arcsin 1.22
(3×108 m/s)
(220×109 Hz)(0.55 m)
= 0.173◦ .
This is the angle from the central maximum; the angular width is twice this, or 0.35◦ .
(b) use Eq. 42-11:
(0.0157 m)
θ = arcsin 1.22
= 0.471◦ .
(2.33 m)
This is the angle from the central maximum; the angular width is twice this, or 0.94◦ .

The linear separation of the fringes is given by
∆y
λ
λD
= ∆θ = or ∆y =
D
d
d
for suﬃciently small d compared to λ.
E42-26 (a) d sin θ = 4λ gives the location of the fourth interference maximum, while a sin θ =
λ gives the location of the ﬁrst diﬀraction minimum. Hence, if d = 4a there will be no fourth
interference maximum!
(b) Since d sin θmi = mi λ gives the interference maxima and a sin θmd = md λ gives the diﬀraction
minima, and d = 4a, then whenever mi = 4md there will be a missing maximum.
E42-27 (a) The central diﬀraction envelope is contained in the range
θ = arcsin
λ
a
This angle corresponds to the mth maxima of the interference pattern, where
sin θ = mλ/d = mλ/2a.
Equating, m = 2, so there are three interference bands, since the m = 2 band is “washed out” by
the diﬀraction minimum.
(b) If d = a then β = α and the expression reduces to
Iθ
sin2 α
,
α2
sin2 (2α)
= Im
,
2α2
2
sin α
= 2I m
,
α
= I m cos2 α
where α = 2α , which is the same as replacing a by 2a.
E42-28 Remember that the central peak has an envelope width twice that of any other peak.
Ignoring the central maximum there are (11 − 1)/2 = 5 fringes in any other peak envelope.
217
E42-29 (a) The ﬁrst diﬀraction minimum is given at an angle θ such that a sin θ = λ; the order
of the interference maximum at that point is given by d sin θ = mλ. Dividing one expression by the
other we get d/a = m, with solution m = (0.150)/(0.030) = 5. The fact that the answer is exactly 5
implies that the ﬁfth interference maximum is squelched by the diﬀraction minimum. Then there are
only four complete fringes on either side of the central maximum. Add this to the central maximum
and we get nine as the answer.
(b) For the third fringe m = 3, so d sin θ = 3λ. Then β is Eq. 42-14 is 3π, while α in Eq. 42-16
is

πa 3λ
α=

so the relative intensity of the third fringe is, from Eq. 42-17,

y = mλD/a. Then
y = (10)(632.8×10−9 m)(2.65 m)/(1.37×10−3 m) = 1.224×10−2 m.
The separation is twice this, or 2.45 cm.
P42-2 If a
λ then the diﬀraction pattern is extremely tight, and there is eﬀectively no light at
P . In the event that either shape produces an interference pattern at P then the other shape must
produce an equal but opposite electric ﬁeld vector at that point so that when both patterns from
both shapes are superimposed the ﬁeld cancel.
But the intensity is the ﬁeld vector squared; hence the two patterns look identical.

This equals zero whenever sin α = 0 or α cos α = sin α; the former is the case for a minima while the
latter is the case for the maxima. The maxima case can also be written as
tan α = α.
(b) Note that as the order of the maxima increases the solutions get closer and closer to odd
integers times π/2. The solutions are
α = 0, 1.43π, 2.46π, etc.
(c) The m values are m = α/π − 1/2, and correspond to
m = 0.5, 0.93, 1.96, etc.
These values will get closer and closer to integers as the values are increased.

The outgoing beam strikes the moon with a circular spot of radius

π(1.3 m)2 = 5.6×10−6 .
Finally, P2 /P0 = 3×10−11 .
P42-5 (a) The ring is reddish because it occurs at the blue minimum.
(b) Apply Eq. 42-11 for blue light:
d = 1.22λ/ sin θ = 1.22(400 nm)/ sin(0.375◦ ) = 70 µm.
(c) Apply Eq. 42-11 for red light:
θ = arcsin (1.22(700 nm)/(70 µm)) ≈ 0.7◦ ,
which occurs 3 lunar radii from the moon.
P42-6 The diﬀraction pattern is a property of the speaker, not the interference between the speakers. The diﬀraction pattern should be unaﬀected by the phase shift. The interference pattern,
however, should shift up or down as the phase of the second speaker is varied.
P42-7 (a) The missing fringe at θ = 5◦ is a good hint as to what is going on. There should be
some sort of interference fringe, unless the diﬀraction pattern has a minimum at that point. This
would be the ﬁrst minimum, so
a sin(5◦ ) = (440 × 10−9 m)
would be a good measure of the width of each slit. Then a = 5.05 × 10−6 m.
219
(b) If the diﬀraction pattern envelope were not present we could expect that the fourth interference maxima beyond the central maximum would occur at this point, and then
d sin(5◦ ) = 4(440 × 10−9 m)
yielding
d = 2.02 × 10−5 m.

N = D/d = (2.86×10−2 m)/(2.235×10−6 m) = 12, 800.
E43-3 We want to ﬁnd a relationship between the angle and the order number which is linear.

On my calculator I get the best straight line ﬁt as

which means that
λ = (0.302)(1.73 µm) = 522 nm.
E43-4 Although an approach like the solution to Exercise 3 should be used, we’ll assume that each
measurement is perfect and error free. Then randomly choosing the third maximum,

It doesn’t take much imagination to recognize that the second and third order maxima were given.
(b) If the fourth order maxima is missing it must be because the diﬀraction pattern envelope has
a minimum at that point. Any fourth order maxima should have occurred at sin θ4 = 0.4. If it is a
diﬀraction minima then
a sin θm = mλ where sin θm = 0.4
We can solve this expression and ﬁnd

The minimum width is when m = 1, or a = 1.5 µm.
(c) The visible orders would be integer values of m except for when m is a multiple of four.
E43-6 (a) Find the maximum integer value of m = d/λ = (930 nm)/(615 nm) = 1.5, hence
m = −1, 0, +1; there are three diﬀraction maxima.
(b) The ﬁrst order maximum occurs at
θ = arcsin(615 nm)/(930 nm) = 41.4◦ .
The width of the maximum is
δθ =

(1120)(930 nm) cos(41.4◦ )
or 0.0451◦ .

E43-9
A grating with 400 rulings/mm has a slit separation of
d=
1
= 2.5 × 10−3 mm.
400 mm−1
To ﬁnd the number of orders of the entire visible spectrum that will be present we need only consider
the wavelength which will be on the outside of the maxima. That will be the longer wavelengths, so
we only need to look at the 700 nm behavior. Using Eq. 43-1,
d sin θ = mλ,
and using the maximum angle 90◦ , we ﬁnd
m<
(2.5 × 10−6 m)
d
=
= 3.57,
λ
(700 × 10−9 m)
so there can be at most three orders of the entire spectrum.
E43-10 In this case d = 2a. Since interference maxima are given by sin θ = mλ/d while diﬀraction
minima are given at sin θ = m λ/a = 2m λ/d then diﬀraction minima overlap with interference
maxima whenever m = 2m . Consequently, all even m are at diﬀraction minima and therefore
vanish.
E43-11 If the second-order spectra overlaps the third-order, it is because the 700 nm second-order
line is at a larger angle than the 400 nm third-order line.
Start with the wavelengths multiplied by the appropriate order parameter, then divide both side
by d, and ﬁnally apply Eq. 43-1.

regardless of the value of d.
E43-12 Fig. 32-2 shows the path length diﬀerence for the right hand side of the grating as d sin θ.
If the beam strikes the grating at ang angle ψ then there will be an additional path length diﬀerence
of d sin ψ on the right hand side of the ﬁgure. The diﬀraction pattern then has two contributions to
the path length diﬀerence, these add to give
d(sin θ + sin psi) = mλ.
E43-13
E43-14 Let d sin θi = λi and θ1 + 20◦ = θ2 . Then
sin θ2 = sin θ1 cos(20◦ ) + cos θ1 sin(20◦ ).
Rearranging,
sin θ2 = sin θ1 cos(20◦ ) +
1 − sin2 θ1 sin(20◦ ).
Substituting the equations together yields a rather nasty expression,
λ2
λ1
=
cos(20◦ ) +
d
d
1 − (λ1 /d)2 sin(20◦ ).
223
Rearranging,
2
(λ2 − λ1 cos(20◦ )) = d2 − λ2 sin2 (20◦ ).
1
Use λ1 = 430 nm and λ2 = 680 nm, then solve for d to ﬁnd d = 914 nm. This corresponds to 1090
rulings/mm.
E43-15 The shortest wavelength passes through at an angle of
θ1 = arctan(50 mm)/(300 mm) = 9.46◦ .
This corresponds to a wavelength of
λ1 =
(1×10−3 m) sin(9.46◦ )
= 470×10−9 m.
(350)
The longest wavelength passes through at an angle of
θ2 = arctan(60 mm)/(300 mm) = 11.3◦ .
This corresponds to a wavelength of
λ2 =
(1×10−3 m) sin(11.3◦ )
= 560×10−9 m.
(350)
E43-16 (a) ∆λ = λ/R = λ/N m, so
∆λ = (481 nm)/(620 rulings/mm)(5.05 mm)(3) = 0.0512 nm.
(b) mm is the largest integer smaller than d/λ, or
mm ≤ 1/(481×10−9 m)(620 rulings/mm) = 3.35,
so m = 3 is highest order seen.

Our resolving power is then R = 1000.

(b) The resolving power of the grating needs to be at least R = 1000 for the third-order line; see

N=

so the width of the grating (or at least the part that is being used) is 333(9.98 µm) = 3.3 mm.
E43-22 (a) Condition (1) is satisﬁed if
d ≥ 2(600 nm)/ sin(30◦ ) = 2400 nm.
The dispersion is maximal for the smallest d, so d = 2400 nm.

2 sin(28.1◦ )
Bragg reﬂection is given by Eq. 43-12
2d sin θ = mλ,
where the angles are measured not against the normal, but against the plane. The value of d depends
on the family of planes under consideration, but it is at never larger than a0 , the unit cell dimension.
We are looking for the smallest angle; this will correspond to the largest d and the smallest m.
That means m = 1 and d = 0.313 nm. Then the minimum angle is
θ = sin−1
(1)(29.3 × 10−12 m)
= 2.68◦ .
2(0.313 × 10−9 m)
E43-26 2d/λ = sin θ1 and 2d/2λ = sin θ2 . Then
θ2 = arcsin[2 sin(3.40◦ )] = 6.81◦ .
E43-27
We apply Eq. 43-12 to each of the peaks and ﬁnd the product
mλ = 2d sin θ.
The four values are 26 pm, 39 pm, 52 pm, and 78 pm. The last two values are twice the ﬁrst two,
so the wavelengths are 26 pm and 39 pm.
E43-28 (a) 2d sin θ = mλ, so
d=
(3)(96.7 pm)
= 171 pm.
2 sin(58.0◦ )
(b) λ = 2(171 pm) sin(23.2◦ )/(1) = 135 pm.
E43-29 The angle against the face of the crystal is 90◦ − 51.3◦ = 38.7◦ . The wavelength is
λ = 2(39.8 pm) sin(38.7◦ )/(1) = 49.8 pm.
E43-30 If λ > 2d then λ/2d > 1. But
λ/2d = sin θ/m.
This means that sin θ > m, but the sine function can never be greater than one.
E43-31 There are too many unknowns. It is only possible to determine the ratio d/λ.
E43-32 A wavelength will be diﬀracted if mλ = 2d sin θ. The possible solutions are

E43-34 Diﬀraction occurs when 2d sin θ = mλ. The angles in this case are then given by
sin θ = m
(0.125×10−9 m)
= (0.248)m.
2(0.252×10−9 m)
There are four solutions to this equation. They are 14.4◦ , 29.7◦ , 48.1◦ , and 82.7◦ . They involve
rotating the crystal from the original orientation (90◦ − 42.4◦ = 47.6◦ ) by amounts

P43-1 Since the slits are so narrow we only need to consider interference eﬀects, not diﬀraction
eﬀects. There are three waves which contribute at any point. The phase angle between adjacent
waves is
φ = 2πd sin θ/λ.
We can add the electric ﬁeld vectors as was done in the previous chapters, or we can do it in a
diﬀerent order as is shown in the ﬁgure below.
Then the vectors sum to
E(1 + 2 cos φ).
We need to square this quantity, and then normalize it so that the central maximum is the maximum.
Then

three slit case is smaller.
∆θ ≈
P43-3 (a) and (b) A plot of the intensity quickly reveals that there is an alternation of large
maximum, then a smaller maximum, etc. The large maxima are at φ = 2nπ, the smaller maxima
are half way between those values.
(c) The intensity at these secondary maxima is then
I = Im
(1 + 4 cos π + 4 cos2 π)
Im

Note that the minima are not located half-way between the maxima!
P43-4 Covering up the middle slit will result in a two slit apparatus with a slit separation of 2d.
The half width, as found in Problem 41-5, is then
∆θ = λ/2(2d), = λ/4d,
which is narrower than before covering up the middle slit by a factor of 3.2/4 = 0.8.
P43-5 (a) If N is large we can treat the phasors as summing to form a ﬂexible “line” of length
N δE. We then assume (incorrectly) that the secondary maxima occur when the loop wraps around
on itself as shown in the ﬁgures below. Note that the resultant phasor always points straight up.
This isn’t right, but it is close to reality.
228
The length of the resultant depends on how many loops there are. For k = 0 there are none.
For k = 1 there are one and a half loops. The circumference of the resulting circle is 2N δE/3, the
diameter is N δE/3π. For k = 2 there are two and a half loops. The circumference of the resulting
circle is 2N δE/5, the diameter is N δE/5π. The pattern for higher k is similar: the circumference
is 2N δE/(2k + 1), the diameter is N δE/(k + 1/2)π.
The intensity at this “approximate” maxima is proportional to the resultant squared, or
(N δE)2

This is almost, but not quite, one of Heisenberg’s uncertainty relations!
P43-7 (b) We sketch parallel lines which connect centers to form almost any right triangle similar
to the one shown in the Fig. 43-18. The triangle will have two sides which have integer multiple
√
lengths of the lattice spacing a0 . The hypotenuse of the triangle will then have length h2 + k 2 a0 ,
where h and k are the integers. In Fig. 43-18 h = 2 while k = 1. The number of planes which cut
the diagonal is equal to h2 + k 2 if, and only if, h and k are relatively prime. The inter-planar spacing

P43-8 The middle layer cells will also diﬀract a beam, but this beam will be exactly π out of phase
with the top layer. The two beams will then cancel out exactly because of destructive interference.
230
E44-1 (a) The direction of propagation is determined by considering the argument of the sine
function. As t increases y must decrease to keep the sine function “looking” the same, so the wave
is propagating in the negative y direction.
(b) The electric ﬁeld is orthogonal (perpendicular) to the magnetic ﬁeld (so Ex = 0) and the
direction of motion (so Ey = 0); Consequently, the only non-zero term is Ez . The magnitude of E
will be equal to the magnitude of B times c. Since S = E × B/µ0 , when B points in the positive
x direction then E must point in the negative z direction in order that S point in the negative y
direction. Then
Ez = −cB sin(ky + ωt).
(c) The polarization is given by the direction of the electric ﬁeld, so the wave is linearly polarized
in the z direction.
E44-2 Let one wave be polarized in the x direction and the other in the y direction. Then the net
2
2
electric ﬁeld is given by E 2 = Ex + Ey , or
2
E 2 = E0 sin2 (kz − ωt) + sin2 (kz − ωt + β) ,
where β is the phase diﬀerence. We can consider any point in space, including z = 0, and then
average the result over a full cycle. Since β merely shifts the integration limits, then the result is
independent of β. Consequently, there are no interference eﬀects.
E44-3 (a) The transmitted intensity is I0 /2 = 6.1×10−3 W/m2 . The maximum value of the electric
ﬁeld is
Em =
2µ0 cI =
2(1.26×10−6 H/m)(3.00×108 m/s)(6.1×10−3 W/m2 ) = 2.15 V/m.
(b) The radiation pressure is caused by the absorbed half of the incident light, so
p = I/c = (6.1×10−3 W/m2 )/(3.00×108 m/s) = 2.03×10−11 Pa.
E44-4 The ﬁrst sheet transmits half the original intensity, the second transmits an amount proportional to cos2 θ. Then I = (I0 /2) cos2 θ, or
θ = arccos
2I/I0 = arccos
2(I0 /3)/I0 35.3◦ .
E44-5 The ﬁrst sheet polarizes the un-polarized light, half of the intensity is transmitted, so
I1 = 1 I0 .

The second sheet transmits according to Eq. 44-1,
I2 = I1 cos2 θ =
1
1
I0 cos2 (45◦ ) = I0 ,

and the transmitted light is polarized in the direction of the second sheet.
The third sheet is 45◦ to the second sheet, so the intensity of the light which is transmitted
through the third sheet is

I3 = I2 cos2 θ = I0 cos2 (45◦ ) = I0 .

231
E44-6 The transmitted intensity through the ﬁrst sheet is proportional to cos2 θ, the transmitted
intensity through the second sheet is proportional to cos2 (90◦ − θ) = sin2 θ. Then
I = I0 cos2 θ sin2 θ = (I0 /4) sin2 2θ,
or

arcsin 4I/I0 = arcsin

Note that 70.4◦ is also a valid solution!
θ=
4(0.100I0 )/I0 = 19.6◦ .

an amount proportional to cos2 θ, where θ = 30◦ . Then

E44-8 The ﬁrst sheet transmits an amount proportional to cos2 θ, where θ = 58.8◦ . The second
sheet transmits an amount proportional to cos2 (90◦ − θ) = sin2 θ. Then
I = I0 cos2 θ sin2 θ = (43.3 W/m2 ) cos2 (58.8◦ ) sin2 (58.8◦ ) = 8.50 W/m2 .
E44-9 Since the incident beam is unpolarized the ﬁrst sheet transmits 1/2 of the original intensity.
The transmitted beam then has a polarization set by the ﬁrst sheet: 58.8◦ to the vertical. The second
sheet is horizontal, which puts it 31.2◦ to the ﬁrst sheet. Then the second sheet transmits cos2 (31.2◦ )
of the intensity incident on the second sheet. The ﬁnal intensity transmitted by the second sheet
can be found from the product of these terms,
I = (43.3 W/m2 )

cos2 (31.2◦ ) = 15.8 W/m2 .
E44-10 θp = arctan(1.53/1.33) = 49.0◦ .
E44-11 (a) The angle for complete polarization of the reﬂected ray is Brewster’s angle, and is
given by Eq. 44-3 (since the ﬁrst medium is air)
θp = tan−1 n = tan−1 (1.33) = 53.1◦ .
(b) Since the index of refraction depends (slightly) on frequency, then so does Brewster’s angle.
E44-12 (b) Since θr + θp = 90◦ , θp = 90◦ − (31.8 ) = 58.2◦ .
(a) n = tan θp = tan(58.2◦ ) = 1.61.
E44-13 The angles are between
θp = tan−1 n = tan−1 (1.472) = 55.81◦ .
and
θp = tan−1 n = tan−1 (1.456) = 55.52◦ .
E44-14 The smallest possible thickness t will allow for one half a wavelength phase diﬀerence for
the o and e waves. Then ∆nt = λ/2, or
t = (525×10−9 m)/2(0.022) = 1.2×10−5 m.
232
E44-15 (a) The incident wave is at 45◦ to the optical axis. This means that there are two
components; assume they originally point in the +y and +z direction. When they travel through
the half wave plate they are now out of phase by 180◦ ; this means that when one component is in
the +y direction the other is in the −z direction. In eﬀect the polarization has been rotated by 90◦ .
(b) Since the half wave plate will delay one component so that it emerges 180◦ “later” than it
should, it will in eﬀect reverse the handedness of the circular polarization.
(c) Pretend that an unpolarized beam can be broken into two orthogonal linearly polarized
components. Both are then rotated through 90◦ ; but when recombined it looks like the original
beam. As such, there is no apparent change.
E44-16 The quarter wave plate has a thickness of x = λ/4∆n, so the number of plates that can
be cut is given by
N = (0.250×10−3 m)4(0.181)/(488×10−9 m) = 371.
P44-1 Intensity is proportional to the electric ﬁeld squared, so the original intensity reaching the
eye is I0 , with components I h = (2.3)2 I v , and then
I0 = I h + I v = 6.3I v or I v = 0.16I0 .
Similarly, I h = (2.3)2 I v = 0.84I0 .
(a) When the sun-bather is standing only the vertical component passes, while
(b) when the sun-bather is lying down only the horizontal component passes.
P44-2 The intensity of the transmitted light which was originally unpolarized is reduced to I u /2,
regardless of the orientation of the polarizing sheet. The intensity of the transmitted light which
was originally polarized is between 0 and I p , depending on the orientation of the polarizing sheet.
Then the maximum transmitted intensity is I u /2 + I p , while the minimum transmitted intensity is
I u /2. The ratio is 5, so
I u /2 + I p
Ip
5=
=1+2 ,
I u /2
Iu
or I p /I u = 2. Then the beam is 1/3 unpolarized and 2/3 polarized.
P44-3
Each sheet transmits a fraction
cos2 α = cos2
θ
N
.
There are N sheets, so the fraction transmitted through the stack is
cos2
θ
N
N
.
We want to evaluate this in the limit as N → ∞.
As N gets larger we can use a small angle approximation to the cosine function,

cos x ≈ 1 − x2 for x

The the transmitted intensity is
1−

2N
.

This expression can also be expanded in a binomial expansion to get
1 − 2N
1 θ2
,
2 N2
which in the limit as N → ∞ approaches 1.
The stack then transmits all of the light which makes it past the ﬁrst ﬁlter. Assuming the light
is originally unpolarized, then the stack transmits half the original intensity.
P44-4 (a) Stack several polarizing sheets so that the angle between any two sheets is suﬃciently
small, but the total angle is 90◦ .
(b) The transmitted intensity fraction needs to be 0.95. Each sheet will transmit a fraction
cos2 θ, where θ = 90◦ /N , with N the number of sheets. Then we want to solve
0.95 = cos2 (90◦ /N )
N
for N . For large enough N , θ will be small, so we can expand the cosine function as
cos2 θ = 1 − sin2 θ ≈ 1 − θ2 ,
so
0.95 ≈ 1 − (π/2N )2
N
≈ 1 − N (π/2N )2 ,
which has solution N = π 2 /4(0.05) = 49.
P44-5 Since passing through a quarter wave plate twice can rotate the polarization of a linearly
polarized wave by 90◦ , then if the light passes through a polarizer, through the plate, reﬂects oﬀ the
coin, then through the plate, and through the polarizer, it would be possible that when it passes
through the polarizer the second time it is 90◦ to the polarizer and no light will pass. You won’t see
the coin.
On the other hand if the light passes ﬁrst through the plate, then through the polarizer, then is
reﬂected, the passes again through the polarizer, all the reﬂected light will pass through he polarizer
and eventually work its way out through the plate. So the coin will be visible.
Hence, side A must be the polarizing sheet, and that sheet must be at 45◦ to the optical axis.
P44-6
(a) The displacement of a ray is given by
tan θk = yk /t,
so the shift is
∆y = t(tan θe − tan θo ).

The shift is then
∆y = (1.12×10−2 m) (tan(24.94) − tan(22.21)) = 6.35×10−4 m.
(b) The e-ray bends less than the o-ray.
(c) The rays have polarizations which are perpendicular to each other; the o-wave being polarized
along the direction of the optic axis.
(d) One ray, then the other, would disappear.
234
P44-7 The method is outline in Sample Problem 44-24; use a polarizing sheet to pick out the o-ray
or the e-ray.

E45-1
(a) The energy of a photon is given by Eq. 45-1, E = hf , so
E = hf =
hc
.
λ
Putting in “best” numbers
hc =
(6.62606876×10−34 J · s)
(2.99792458×108 m/s) = 1.23984×10−6 eV · m.
(1.602176462×10−19 C)
This means that hc = 1240 eV · nm is accurate to almost one part in 8000!
(b) E = (1240 eV · nm)/(589 nm) = 2.11 eV.
E45-2 Using the results of Exercise 45-1,
λ=
(1240 eV · nm)

(0.60 eV)
which is in the infrared.
E45-3 Using the results of Exercise 45-1,
E1 =
(1240 eV · nm)

(375 nm)
E2 =
(1240 eV · nm)

(580 nm)
and
The diﬀerence is ∆E = (3.307 eV) − (2.138 eV) = 1.17 eV.
E45-4 P = E/t, so, using the result of Exercise 45-1,
P = (100/s)
(1240 eV · nm)
= 230 eV/s.
(540 nm)
That’s a small 3.68×10−17 W.
E45-5 When talking about the regions in the sun’s spectrum it is more common to refer to
wavelengths than frequencies. So we will use the results of Exercise 45-1(a), and solve
λ = hc/E = (1240 eV · nm)/E.
The energies are between E = (1.0×1018 J)/(1.6×10−19 C) = 6.25 eV and E = (1.0×1016 J)/(1.6×
10−19 C) = 625 eV. These energies correspond to wavelengths between 198 nm and 1.98 nm; this is
the ultraviolet range.
E45-6 The energy per photon is E = hf = hc/λ. The intensity is power per area, which is energy
per time per area, so

But R = n/t is the rate of photons per unit time. Since h and c are constants and I and A are equal
for the two beams, we have R1 /λ1 = R2 /λ2 , or
R1 /R2 = λ1 /λ2 .
236
E45-7 (a) Since the power is the same, the bulb with the larger energy per photon will emits
fewer photons per second. Since longer wavelengths have lower energies, the bulb emitting 700 nm
must be giving oﬀ more photons per second.
(b) How many more photons per second? If E1 is the energy per photon for one of the bulbs,
then N1 = P/E1 is the number of photons per second emitted. The diﬀerence is then

E45-8 Using the results of Exercise 45-1, the energy of one photon is
E=

(630 nm)
The total light energy given oﬀ by the bulb is

E45-9 Apply Wien’s law, Eq. 45-4, λmax T = 2898 µm · K; so
T =
(2898 µm · K)
= 91×106 K.
(32×10−12 m)
Actually, the wavelength was supposed to be 32 µm. Then the temperature would be 91 K.
E45-10 Apply Wien’s law, Eq. 45-4, λmax T = 2898 µm · K; so
λ=
(2898 µm · K)

(0.0020 K)
This is in the radio region, near 207 on the FM dial.
E45-11 The wavelength of the maximum spectral radiancy is given by Wien’s law, Eq. 45-4,
λmax T = 2898 µm · K.
Applying to each temperature in turn,
(a) λ = 1.06×10−3 m, which is in the microwave;
(b) λ = 9.4×10−6 m, which is in the infrared;
(c) λ = 1.6×10−6 m, which is in the infrared;
(d) λ = 5.0×10−7 m, which is in the visible;
(e) λ = 2.9×10−10 m, which is in the x-ray;
(f) λ = 2.9×10−41 m, which is in a hard gamma ray.
237
E45-12 (a) Apply Wien’s law, Eq. 45-4, λmax T = 2898 µm · K.; so
λ=

(5800 K)
That’s blue-green.
(b) Apply Wien’s law, Eq. 45-4, λmax T = 2898 µm · K.; so
T =

E45-13 I = σT 4 and P = IA. Then
P = (5.67×10−8 W/m2 · K4 )(1900 K)4 π(0.5×10−3 m)2 = 0.58 W.
E45-14 Since I ∝ T 4 , doubling T results in a 24 = 16 times increase in I. Then the new power
level is
(16)(12.0 mW) = 192 mW.

We know the ratio of the spectral radiancies at two diﬀerent wavelengths. Dividing the above

λ5 ehc/λ2 kT − 1

where λ1 = 200 nm and λ2 = 400 nm. We can considerably simplify this expression if we let
x = ehc/λ2 kT ,
because since λ2 = 2λ1 we would have
ehc/λ1 kT = e2hc/λ2 kT = x2 .
Then we get

E45-17 We’ll use the results of Exercise 45-1. Visible red light has an energy of
E=
(1240 eV · nm)
= 1.9 eV.
(650 nm)
The substance must have a work function less than this to work with red light. This means that
only cesium will work with red light. Visible blue light has an energy of
E=
(1240 eV · nm)
= 2.75 eV.
(450 nm)
This means that barium, lithium, and cesium will work with blue light.
E45-18 Since K m = hf − φ,
K m = (4.14×10−15 eV · s)(3.19×1015 Hz) − (2.33 eV) = 10.9 eV.

Since this energy is less than than the minimum energy required to remove an electron then the

(b) The minimum kinetic energy is zero; the electron just barely makes it oﬀ the surface.
(c) V s = K m /q = 2.0 V.

(4.92 eV + 2.28 eV)
239
E45-22 (a) K m = qV s and K m = hc/λ − φ. We have two diﬀerent values for qV s and λ, so
subtracting this equation from itself yields
q(V s,1 − V s,2 ) = hc/λ1 − hc/λ2 .

E45-29 The initial momentum of the system is the momentum of the photon, p = h/λ. This

P45-1 The radiant intensity is given by Eq. 45-3, I = σT 4 . The power that is radiated through
the opening is P = IA, where A is the area of the opening. But energy goes both ways through the
opening; it is the diﬀerence that will give the net power transfer. Then

P net = (I0 − I1 )A = σA T0 − T1 .

That’s 2980◦ C.
(b) The rate that energy is radiated oﬀ is given by dQ/dt = mC dT /dt. The mass is found from
m = ρV , where V is the volume. This can be combined with the power expression to yield

P45-3 Light from the sun will “heat-up” the thin black screen. As the temperature of the screen
increases it will begin to radiate energy. When the rate of energy radiation from the screen is equal
to the rate at which the energy from the sun strikes the screen we will have equilibrium. We need
ﬁrst to ﬁnd an expression for the rate at which energy from the sun strikes the screen.
The temperature of the sun is T S . The radiant intensity is given by Eq. 45-3, I S = σT S 4 . The
total power radiated by the sun is the product of this radiant intensity and the surface area of the
sun, so
P S = 4πrS 2 σT S 4 ,
244
where rS is the radius of the sun.
Assuming that the lens is on the surface of the Earth (a reasonable assumption), then we can
ﬁnd the power incident on the lens if we know the intensity of sunlight at the distance of the Earth
from the sun. That intensity is

where rl is the radius of the lens. All of the energy that strikes the lens is focused on the image, so
the power incident on the lens is also incident on the image.
The screen radiates as the temperature increases. The radiant intensity is I = σT 4 , where T is
the temperature of the screen. The power radiated is this intensity times the surface area, so
P = IA = 2πri 2 σT 4 .
The factor of “2” is because the screen has two sides, while ri is the radius of the image. Set this
equal to P lens ,

The radius of the image of the sun divided by the radius of the sun is the magniﬁcation of the
lens. But magniﬁcation is also related to image distance divided by object distance, so

Distances should be measured from the lens, but since the sun is so far from the Earth, we won’t be
far oﬀ in stating o ≈ RE . Since the object is so far from the lens, the image will be very, very close
to the focal point, so we can also state i ≈ f . Then

A steady state planet temperature requires that the energy from the sun arrive at the same rate
as the energy is radiated from the planet. The intensity of the energy from the sun a distance r

Bragg reﬂection occurs when 2d sin θ = λ, so

First, the rule for exponents
ei(a+b) = eia eib .
Then apply Eq. 46-12, eiθ = cos θ + i sin θ,
cos(a + b) + i sin(a + b) = (cos a + i sin a)(sin b + i sin b).
Expand the right hand side, remembering that i2 = −1,
cos(a + b) + i sin(a + b) = cos a cos b + i cos a sin b + i sin a cos b − sin a sin b.
Since the real part of the left hand side must equal the real part of the right and the imaginary part
of the left hand side must equal the imaginary part of the right, we actually have two equations.
They are
cos(a + b) = cos a cos b − sin a sin b
and
sin(a + b) = cos a sin b + sin a cos b.

The answer is correct, but the units make it almost useless. We can divide by the electron charge to
express this in electron volts, and then E = 1900 MeV. Note that this is an extremely relativistic
quantity, so the energy expression loses validity.

these problems. Multiplying the top and the bottom of the energy expression by c2 we get

The transition energy is

This must be part of the Lyman series, so the higher state must be
En = (10.20 eV) − (13.6 eV) = −3.4 eV.
That would correspond to n = 2.
E47-15 The binding energy is the energy required to remove the electron. If the energy of the
electron is negative, then that negative energy is a measure of the energy required to set the electron
free.
The ﬁrst excited state is when n = 2 in Eq. 47-21. It is not necessary to re-evaluate the constants
in this equation every time, instead, we start from
En =

where E1 = −13.60 eV.

Then the ﬁrst excited state has energy

E=

λ
(1281.8 nm)
The ﬁnal state of the hydrogen must have an energy of no more than −0.96739, so the largest
possible n of the ﬁnal state is
n<
13.60 eV/0.96739 eV = 3.75,
so the ﬁnal n is 1, 2, or 3. The initial state is only slightly higher than the ﬁnal state. The jump
from n = 2 to n = 1 is too large (see Exercise 15), any other initial state would have a larger energy
diﬀerence, so n = 1 is not the ﬁnal state.
So what level might be above n = 2? We’ll try
n=
13.6 eV/(3.4 eV − 0.97 eV) = 2.36,
which is so far from being an integer that we don’t need to look farther. The n = 3 state has energy
13.6 eV/9 = 1.51 eV. Then the initial state could be
n=
13.6 eV/(1.51 eV − 0.97 eV) = 5.01,
which is close enough to 5 that we can assume the transition was n = 5 to n = 3.
(b) This belongs to the Paschen series.
E47-18 In Exercise 47-21 we show that the hydrogen levels can be written as
En = −(13.6 eV)/n2 .
(a) The transition energy is
∆E = E4 − E1 = (13.6 eV)(1/12 − 1/42 ) = 12.8 eV.
(b) All transitions n → m are allowed for n ≤ 4 and m < n. The transition energy will be of the
form
En − Em = (13.6 eV)(1/m2 − 1/n2 ).
The six possible results are 12.8 eV, 12.1 eV, 10.2 eV, 2.55 eV, 1.89 eV, and 0.66 eV.

E47-21 In order to have an inelastic collision with the 6.0 eV neutron there must exist a transition
with an energy diﬀerence of less than 6.0 eV. For a hydrogen atom in the ground state E1 = −13.6 eV
the nearest state is
E2 = (−13.6 eV)/(2)2 = −3.4 eV.
Since the diﬀerence is 10.2 eV, it will not be possible for the 6.0 eV neutron to have an inelastic
collision with a ground state hydrogen atom.
E47-22 (a) The atom is originally in the state n given by
n=

The state with an excitation energy of 10.2 eV, is
n=

The transition energy is then

while ms can be either −1/2 or 1/2. There are 14 possible states.
E47-44 n must be greater than l, so n ≥ 4. |ml | must be less than or equal to l, so |ml | ≤ 3. ms
is −1/2 or 1/2.
E47-45
If ml = 4 then l ≥ 4. But n ≥ l + 1, so n > 4. We only know that ms = ±1/2.

E47-46 There are 2n2 states in a shell n, so if n = 5 there are 50 states.
E47-47 Each is in the n = 1 shell, the l = 0 angular momentum state, and the ml = 0 state. But
one is in the state ms = +1/2 while the other is in the state ms = −1/2.

values for ml . If n = 1, the sum is 1. If n = 2, the sum is 1 + 3 = 4. If n = 3, the sum is 1 + 3 + 5 = 9.
The pattern is clear, the sum is n2 . But there are two spin states, so the number of states is 2n2 .

photon has an energy of 25.0 keV. The electron is now a 25.0 keV electron, and on the next collision
again loses loses half of its energy to a photon, then this photon has an energy of 12.5 keV. On the
third collision the electron loses the remaining energy, so this photon has an energy of 12.5 keV. The
wavelengths of these photons will be given by
λ=

which is a variation of Exercise 45-1.
E48-10 (a) The x-ray will need to knock free a K shell electron, so it must have an energy of at
least 69.5 keV.

E48-15 (a) The ground state question is fairly easy. The n = 1 shell is completely occupied by
the ﬁrst two electrons. So the third electron will be in the n = 2 state. The lowest energy angular
momentum state in any shell is the s sub-shell, corresponding to l = 0. There is only one choice for
ml in this case: ml = 0. There is no way at this level of coverage to distinguish between the energy
of either the spin up or spin down conﬁguration, so we’ll arbitrarily pick spin up.
(b) Determining the conﬁguration for the ﬁrst excited state will require some thought. We could
assume that one of the K shell electrons (n = 1) is promoted to the L shell (n = 2). Or we could
assume that the L shell electron is promoted to the M shell. Or we could assume that the L shell
electron remains in the L shell, but that the angular momentum value is changed to l = 1. The
question that we would need to answer is which of these possibilities has the lowest energy.
The answer is the last choice: increasing the l value results in a small increase in the energy of
multi-electron atoms.
E48-16 Refer to Sample Problem 47-6:

E48-17 We will assume that the ordering of the energy of the shells and sub-shells is the same.
That ordering is
1s < 2s < 2p < 3s < 3p < 4s < 3d < 4p < 5s < 4d < 5p
< 6s < 4f < 5d < 6p < 7s < 5f < 6d < 7p < 8s.
If there is no spin the s sub-shell would hold 1 electron, the p sub-shell would hold 3, the d sub-shell
5, and the f sub-shell 7. inert gases occur when a p sub-shell has ﬁlled, so the ﬁrst three inert gases
would be element 1 (Hydrogen), element 1 + 1 + 3 = 5 (Boron), and element 1 + 1 + 3 + 1 + 3 = 9
(Fluorine).
Is there a pattern? Yes. The new inert gases have half of the atomic number of the original inert
gases. The factor of one-half comes about because there are no longer two spin states for each set
of n, l, ml quantum numbers.
We can save time and simply divide the atomic numbers of the remaining inert gases in half:
element 18 (Argon), element 27 (Cobalt), element 43 (Technetium), element 59 (Praseodymium).
E48-18 The pattern is
2 + 8 + 8 + 18 + 18 + 32 + 32+?
or
2(12 + 22 + 22 + 33 + 33 + 42 + 42 + x2 )
The unknown is probably x = 5, the next noble element is probably
118 + 2 · 52 = 168.
E48-19 (a) Apply Eq. 47-23, which can be written as
En =

For the valence electron of sodium n = 3,
Z=
(5.14 eV)(3)2
= 1.84,
(13.6 eV)
while for the valence electron of potassium n = 4,
Z=
(4.34 eV)(4)2
= 2.26,
(13.6 eV)
(b) The ratios with the actual values of Z are 0.167 and 0.119, respectively.
E48-20 (a) There are three ml states allowed, and two ms states. The ﬁrst electron can be in
any one of these six combinations of M1 and m2 . The second electron, given no exclusion principle,
could also be in any one of these six states. The total is 36. Unfortunately, this is wrong, because
we can’t distinguish electrons. Of this total of 36, six involve the electrons being in the same state,
while 30 involve the electron being in diﬀerent states. But if the electrons are in diﬀerent states,
then they could be swapped, and we won’t know, so we must divide this number by two. The total
number of distinguishable states is then
(30/2) + 6 = 21.
(b) Six. See the above discussion.

E48-21 (a) The Bohr orbits are circular orbits of radius rn = a0 n2 (Eq. 47-20). The electron is

(b) In reality the magnetic moments depend on the angular momentum quantum number, not
the principle quantum number. Although the Bohr theory correctly predicts the magnitudes, it does
not correctly predict when these values would occur.
E48-22 (a) Apply Eq. 48-14:

E48-24 (a) ∆U = 2µB, or
∆U = 2(5.79×10−5 eV/T)(0.520 T) = 6.02×10−5 eV.
(b) f = E/h = (6.02×10−5 eV)(4.14×10−15 eV · s) = 1.45×1010 Hz.
(c) λ = c/f = (3×108 m/s)/(1.45×1010 Hz) = 2.07×10−2 m.
E48-25 The energy change can be derived from Eq. 48-13; we multiply by a factor of 2 because
the spin is completely ﬂipped. Then
∆E = 2µz Bz = 2(9.27×10−24 J/T)(0.190 T) = 3.52×10−24 J.
The corresponding wavelength is

This is somewhere near the microwave range.
E48-26 The photon has an energy E = hc/λ. This energy is related to the magnetic ﬁeld in the

E48-27 Applying the results of Exercise 45-1,
E=

(800nm)
The production rate is then
R=

E48-28 (a) x = (3×108 m/s)(12×10−12 s) = 3.6×10−3 m.
(b) Applying the results of Exercise 45-1,
E=
(1240 eV · nm)
= 1.786 eV.
(694.4nm)
The number of photons in the pulse is then
N = (0.150J)/(1.786 eV)(1.6×10−19 J/eV) = 5.25×1017 .
E48-29 We need to ﬁnd out how many 10 MHz wide signals can ﬁt between the two wavelengths.

The number of signals that can be sent in this range is

(10 × 106 Hz)
That’s quite a number of television channels.
E48-30 Applying the results of Exercise 45-1,
E=
(1240 eV · nm)
= 1.960 eV.
(632.8nm)
The number of photons emitted in one minute is then
N=
(2.3×10−3 W)(60 s)
= 4.4×1017 .
(1.960 eV)(1.6×10−19 J/eV)
E48-31 Apply Eq. 48-19. E1 3 − E1 1 = 2(1.2 eV).. The ratio is then
−5
n1 3
= e−(2.4 eV)/(8.62×10 eV/K)(2000 K) = 9×10−7 .
n1 1
E48-32 (a) Population inversion means that the higher energy state is more populated; this can
only happen if the ratio in Eq. 48-19 is greater than one, which can only happen if the argument of
the exponent is positive. That would require a negative temperature.
(b) If n2 = 1.1n1 then the ratio is 1.1, so
T =
E48-33
(−2.26 eV
= −2.75×105 K.
(8.62×10−5 eV/K) ln(1.1)
(a) At thermal equilibrium the population ratio is given by
N2
e−E2 /kT

N1
e 1
But ∆E can be written in terms of the transition photon wavelength, so this expression becomes
N2 = N1 e−hc/λkT .
Putting in the numbers,
−5
N2 = (4.0×1020 )e−(1240 eV·nm)/(582 nm)(8.62×10 eV/K)(300 K)) = 6.62×10−16 .
That’s eﬀectively none.
(b) If the population of the upper state were 7.0×1020 , then in a single laser pulse

λ1 (λ1 + 130 pm) = (62 pm)(2λ1 + 130 pm),

This equation has solutions
λ1 = 86.8 pm and − 92.8 pm.
Only the positive answer has physical meaning. The energy of this ﬁrst photon is then
E1 =
(1240 keV · pm)
= 14.3 keV.
(86.8 pm)
(a) After this ﬁrst photon is emitted the electron still has a kinetic energy of
20.0 keV − 14.3 keV = 5.7 keV.
(b) We found the energy and wavelength of the ﬁrst photon above. The energy of the second
photon must be 5.7 keV, with wavelength
λ2 = (86.8 pm) + 130 pm = 217 pm.

P48-2
Originally,
1
γ=
1−
(2.73×108 m/s)2 /(3×108 m/s)2
= 2.412.
The energy of the electron is
E0 = γmc2 = (2.412)(511 keV) = 1232 keV.
Upon emitting the photon the new energy is
E = (1232 keV) − (43.8 keV) = 1189 keV,
so the new gamma factor is
γ = (1189 keV)/(511 keV) = 2.326,
and the new speed is
v = c 1 − 1/(2.326)2 = (0.903)c.
P48-3 Switch to a reference frame where the electron is originally at rest.
Momentum conservation requires
0 = pλ + pe = 0,
while energy conservation requires
mc2 = Eλ + Ee .
Rearrange to
Ee = mc2 − Eλ .
Square both sides of this energy expression and
2
Eλ − 2Eλ mc2 + m2 c4

Eλ − 2Eλ mc2
p2 c2 − 2Eλ mc2
λ

But the momentum expression can be used here, and the result is
−2Eλ mc2 = 0.
Not likely.
P48-4 (a) In the Bohr theory we can assume that the K shell electrons “see” a nucleus with charge
Z. The L shell electrons, however, are shielded by the one electron in the K shell and so they “see”
a nucleus with charge Z − 1. Finally, the M shell electrons are shielded by the one electron in the
K shell and the eight electrons in the K shell, so they “see” a nucleus with charge Z − 9.

P48-6 (a) We can assume that the K shell electron “sees” a nucleus of charge Z − 1, since the
other electron in the shell screens it. Then, according to the derivation leading to Eq. 47-22,
rK = a0 /(Z − 1).
(b) The outermost electron “sees” a nucleus screened by all of the other electrons; as such Z = 1,
and the radius is
r = a0
P48-7 We assume in this crude model that one electron moves in a circular orbit attracted to
the helium nucleus but repelled from the other electron. Look back to Sample Problem 47-6; we
need to use some of the results from that Sample Problem to solve this problem.
The factor of e2 in Eq. 47-20 (the expression for the Bohr radius) and the factor of (e2 )2 in Eq.
47-21 (the expression for the Bohr energy levels) was from the Coulomb force between the single
electron and the single proton in the nucleus. This force is
F =
e2
.
4π 0 r2
In our approximation the force of attraction between the one electron and the helium nucleus is
F1 =
2e2
.
4π 0 r2
The factor of two is because there are two protons in the helium nucleus.
There is also a repulsive force between the one electron and the other electron,
F2 =
e2
,
4π 0 (2r)2
285
where the factor of 2r is because the two electrons are on opposite side of the nucleus.
The net force on the ﬁrst electron in our approximation is then

state energy of a helium atom in this approximation is
E0 = −2
49
(13.6 eV) = −83.3eV.

(c) Removing one electron will allow the remaining electron to move closer to the nucleus. The
energy of the remaining electron is given by the Bohr theory for He+ , and is
E He+ = (4)(−13.60 eV) = 54.4 eV,
so the ionization energy is 83.3 eV - 54.4 eV = 28.9 eV. This compares well with the accepted value.

there is no impurity.

level is close to the top of the band gap the impurity is a donor.
The third sample is an intrinsic semiconductor: it is a semiconductor because the lower band is

The fourth sample is a conductor; although the band gap is large, the lower band is not completely

The ﬁfth sample is a conductor: the Fermi level is above the bottom of the upper band.
The sixth one is an extrinsic p-type semiconductor: it is a semiconductor because the lower band

E50-8 239 Pu is composed of 94 protons and 239 − 94 = 145 neutrons. The combined mass of the
free particles is
M = Zmp + N mn = (94)(1.007825 u) + (145)(1.008665 u) = 240.991975 u.
The binding energy is the diﬀerence
E B = (240.991975 u − 239.052156 u)(931.5 MeV/u) = 1806.9 MeV,
and the binding energy per nucleon is then
(1806.9 MeV)/(239) = 7.56 MeV.
E50-9 62 Ni is composed of 28 protons and 62 − 28 = 34 neutrons. The combined mass of the
free particles is
M = Zmp + N mn = (28)(1.007825 u) + (34)(1.008665 u) = 62.513710 u.
The binding energy is the diﬀerence
E B = (62.513710 u − 61.928349 u)(931.5 MeV/u) = 545.3 MeV,
and the binding energy per nucleon is then
(545.3 MeV)/(62) = 8.795 MeV.
E50-10 (a) Multiply each by 1/1.007825, so
m1H = 1.00000,
m12C = 11.906829,
and
m238U = 236.202500.
E50-11 (a) Since the binding energy per nucleon is fairly constant, the energy must be proportional
to A.
(b) Coulomb repulsion acts between pairs of protons; there are Z protons that can be chosen as
ﬁrst in the pair, and Z − 1 protons remaining that can make up the partner in the pair. That makes
for Z(Z − 1) pairs. The electrostatic energy must be proportional to this.
(c) Z 2 grows faster than A, which is roughly proportional to Z.
E50-12 Solve

E50-14 (a) To remove a proton,
E = [(1.007825) + (3.016049) − (4.002603)] (931.5 MeV) = 19.81 MeV.
To remove a neutron,
E = [(1.008665) + (2.014102) − (3.016049)] (931.5 MeV) = 6.258 MeV.
To remove a proton,
E = [(1.007825) + (1.008665) − (2.014102)] (931.5 MeV) = 2.224 MeV.
(b) E = (19.81 + 6.258 + 2.224)MeV = 28.30 MeV.
(c) (28.30 MeV)/4 = 7.07 MeV.
E50-15 (a) ∆ = [(1.007825) − (1)](931.5 MeV) = 7.289 MeV.
(b) ∆ = [(1.008665) − (1)](931.5 MeV) = 8.071 MeV.
(c) ∆ = [(119.902197) − (120)](931.5 MeV) = −91.10 MeV.

Au,
E B = (79)(7.289 MeV) + (197 − 79)(8.071 MeV) − (−31.157 MeV) = 1559 MeV,
and the binding energy per nucleon is then
(1559 MeV)/(197) = 7.92 MeV.

E50-17 The binding energy of
63
Cu is given by
M = Zmp + N mn = (29)(1.007825 u) + (34)(1.008665 u) = 63.521535 u.
The binding energy is the diﬀerence
E B = (63.521535 u − 62.929601 u)(931.5 MeV/u) = 551.4 MeV.
The number of atoms in the sample is
n=
(0.003 kg)(6.02×1023 mol−1 )
= 2.871022 .
(0.0629 kg/mol)
The total energy is then
(2.87×1022 )(551.4 MeV)(1.6×10−19 J/eV) = 2.53×1012 J.
E50-18 (a) For ultra-relativistic particles E = pc, so
λ=
(1240 MeV · fm)
= 2.59 fm.
(480 MeV)
(b) Yes, since the wavelength is smaller than nuclear radii.
E50-19 We will do this one the easy way because we can. This method won’t work except when
there is an integer number of half-lives. The activity of the sample will fall to one-half of the initial
decay rate after one half-life; it will fall to one-half of one-half (one-fourth) after two half-lives. So
two half-lives have elapsed, for a total of (2)(140 d) = 280 d.
E50-20 N = N0 (1/2)t/t1/2 , so
N = (48×1019 )(0.5)(26)/(6.5) = 3.0×1019 .
E50-21 (a) t1/2 = ln 2/(0.0108/h) = 64.2 h.
(b) N = N0 (1/2)t/t1/2 , so
N/N0 = (0.5)(3) = 0.125.
(c) N = N0 (1/2)t/t1/2 , so
N/N0 = (0.5)(240)/(64.2) = 0.0749.
E50-22 (a) λ = (−dN/dt)/N , or
λ = (12/s)/(2.5×1018 ) = 4.8×10−18 /s.
(b) t1/2 = ln 2/λ, so
t1/2 = ln 2/(4.8×10−18 /s) = 1.44×1017 s,
which is 4.5 billion years.

So the activity is
R = (2.461×10−6 /s−1 )(3.077×1022 atoms) = 7.572×1016 decays/s.
(b) After 1.728×105 s the activity would have decreased to
R = R0 e−λt = (7.572×1016 decays/s)e−(2.461×10

/s−1 )(1.728×105 s)
= 4.949×1016 decays/s.
E50-24 N = N0 e−λt , but λ = ln 2/t1/2 , so
N = N0 e− ln 2t/t1/2 = N0 (2)−t/t1/2 = N0
E50-25 The remaining

is
N = (4.7×1021 )(0.5)(28)/(11.43) = 8.6×1020 .
The number of decays, each of which produced an alpha particle, is
(4.7×1021 ) − (8.6×1020 ) = 3.84×1021 .
E50-26 The amount remaining after 14 hours is
m = (5.50 g)(0.5)(14)/(12.7) = 2.562 g.
The amount remaining after 16 hours is
m = (5.50 g)(0.5)(16)/(12.7) = 2.297 g.
The diﬀerence is the amount which decayed during the two hour interval:
(2.562 g) − (2.297 g) = 0.265 g.

Note that counts/s is not the same as decays/s. Not all decay events will be picked up by a detector
and recorded as a count; we are assuming that whatever scaling factor which connects the initial
count rate to the initial decay rate is valid at later times as well. Such an assumption is a reasonable
assumption.
(b) The purpose of such an experiment would be to measure the amount of phosphorus that is
taken up in a leaf. But the activity of the tracer decays with time, and so without a correction factor
we would record the wrong amount of phosphorus in the leaf. That correction factor is R0 /R; we
need to multiply the measured counts by this factor to correct for the decay.

(0.147 kg/mol)
The decay constant is
λ = (120/s)/(6.143×1020 ) = 1.95×10−19 /s.
The half-life is
t1/2 = ln 2/(1.95×10−19 /s) = 3.55×1018 s,
or 110 Gy.

The number which decay is

Only reactions with positive Q values are energetically possible.

For the 4 He decay,

E50-36 Q = (1.008665 − 1.007825)(931.5 MeV) = 0.782 MeV.
E50-37 (a) The kinetic energy of this electron is signiﬁcant compared to the rest mass energy,

(c) The longest wavelength standing wave on a string ﬁxed at each end is twice the length of
the string. Although the rules for standing waves in a box are slightly more complicated, it is a fair
assumption that the electron could not exist as a standing a wave in the nucleus.

E50-40 R = (8722/60 s)/(3.7×1010 /s) = 3.93×10−9 Ci.
E50-41 The radiation absorbed dose (rad) is related to the roentgen equivalent man (rem) by
the quality factor, so for the chest x-ray
(25 mrem)

(0.85)
This is well beneath the annual exposure average.
Each rad corresponds to the delivery of 10−5 J/g, so the energy absorbed by the patient is

E50-45 The hospital uses a 6000 Ci source, and that is all the information we need to ﬁnd the

reaction 90 Zr(n)91 Zr which is
(89.904704 + 1.008665 − 90.905645)(931.5 MeV) = 7.19 MeV.

(b) The binding energy of this neutron can be found by considering the Q value of the reaction
Zr(n)90 Zr which is
(88.908889 + 1.008665 − 89.904704)(931.5 MeV) = 12.0 MeV.
This neutron is bound more tightly that the one in part (a).
(c) The binding energy per nucleon is found by dividing the binding energy by the number of
nucleons:
(40×1.007825 + 51×1.008665 − 90.905645)(931.5 MeV)
= 8.69 MeV.

The neutron in the outside shell of 91 Zr is less tightly bound than the average nucleon in 91 Zr.

P50-1 Before doing anything we need to know whether or not the motion is relativistic. The
rest mass energy of an α particle is
mc2 = (4.00)(931.5 MeV) = 3.73 GeV,
and since this is much greater than the kinetic energy we can assume the motion is non-relativistic,
and we can apply non-relativistic momentum and energy conservation principles. The initial velocity
of the α particle is then
v=
2K/m = c 2K/mc2 = c 2(5.00 MeV)/(3.73 GeV) = 5.18×10−2 c.
For an elastic collision where the second particle is at originally at rest we have the ﬁnal velocity
of the ﬁrst particle as
v 1,f = v 1,i
m2 − m1
(4.00u) − (197u)
= (5.18×10−2 c)
= −4.97×10−2 c,

while the ﬁnal velocity of the second particle is

(b) Energy conservation is the fastest way to answer this question, since it is an elastic collision.
Then

The gamma ray carries away a mass equivalent energy of
mγ = (2.2233 MeV)/(931.5 MeV/u) = 0.002387 u.
The neutron mass would then be

(c) The electrostatic energy is 10.9 MeV per proton.
P50-5 The decay rate is given by R = λN , where N is the number of radioactive nuclei present.
If R exceeds P then nuclei will decay faster than they are produced; but this will cause N to decrease,
which means R will decrease until it is equal to P . If R is less than P then nuclei will be produced
faster than they are decaying; but this will cause N to increase, which means R will increase until it
is equal to P . In either case equilibrium occurs when R = P , and it is a stable equilibrium because
it is approached no matter which side is larger. Then
P = R = λN
at equilibrium, so N = P/λ.

The number of water molecules in the body is
N = (6.02×1023 /mol)(70×103 g)/(18 g/mol) = 2.34×1027 .
There are ten protons in each water molecule. The activity is then
A = (2.34×1027 ) ln 2/(1×1032 y) = 1.62×10−5 /y.
The time between decays is then

P50-9 Assuming the 238 U nucleus is originally at rest the total initial momentum is zero, which
means the magnitudes of the ﬁnal momenta of the α particle and the 234 Th nucleus are equal.

v=
2K/m = c 2K/mc2 = c 2(4.196 MeV)/(4.0026×931.5 MeV) = 4.744×10−2 c.

which agrees well with the Sample Problem.

P50-11 (a) The emitted positron leaves the atom, so the mass must be subtracted. But the
daughter particle now has an extra electron, so that must also be subtracted. Hence the factor

P50-12 (a) Capturing an electron is equivalent to negative beta decay in that the total number
of electrons is accounted for on both the left and right sides of the equation. The loss of the K shell
electron, however, must be taken into account as this energy may be signiﬁcant.
(b) The Q value is

E51-7 When the 233 U nucleus absorbs a neutron we are given a total of 92 protons and 142
neutrons. Gallium has 31 protons and around 39 neutrons; chromium has 24 protons and around
28 neutrons. There are then 37 protons and around 75 neutrons left over. This would be rubidium,
but the number of neutrons is very wrong. Although the elemental identiﬁcation is correct, because
we must conserve proton number, the isotopes are wrong in our above choices for neutron numbers.
E51-8 Beta decay is the emission of an electron from the nucleus; one of the neutrons changes into
a proton. The atom now needs one more electron in the electron shells; by using atomic masses (as
opposed to nuclear masses) then the beta electron is accounted for. This is only true for negative
beta decay, not for positive beta decay.

But this is only half the original amount, or 437 kg.
E51-19 According to Sample Problem 51-3 the rate at which non-ﬁssion thermal neutron capture
occurs is one quarter that of ﬁssion. Hence the mass which undergoes non-ﬁssion thermal neutron
capture is one quarter the answer of Ex. 51-18. The total is then

period tgen the number of ﬁssion events, and hence the average power output from all of the ﬁssion
events, will increase by a factor of k.
For long enough times we can write
P (t) = P0 k t/tgen .

(1200)
(1.3×10−3 s)/(2.6 s)

E51-23 Each ﬁssion releases 200 MeV. Then the ﬁssion rate is
(500×106 W)/(200×106 eV)(1.6×10−19 J/eV) = 1.6×1019 /s
The number of neutrons in “transit” is then
(1.6×1019 /s)(1.0×10−3 s) = 1.6×1016 .
E51-24 Using the results of Exercise 51-21:
P = (400 MW)(1.0003)(300 s)/(0.03 s) = 8030 MW.
E51-25
The time constant for this decay is

The number of nuclei present in 1.00 kg is
N=
(1.00 kg)(6.02×1023 mol−1 )

(238 g/mol)
The decay rate is then
R = λN = (2.50×10−10 s−1 )(2.53×1024 ) = 6.33×1014 s−1 .
The power generated is the decay rate times the energy released per decay,
P = (6.33×1014 s−1 )(5.59×106 eV)(1.6×10−19 J/eV) = 566 W.

The total ﬂux out of the warhead is then
(4.0/s)/(1.62×10−4 ) = 2.47×104 /s.
The number of

Pu atoms is

U consumed is

E51-29
and then
If 238 U absorbs a neutron it becomes 239 U, which will decay by beta decay to ﬁrst 239 Np
Pu; we looked at this in Exercise 51-17. This can decay by alpha emission according to

Pu →235 U + α.
E51-30 The number of atoms present in the sample is
N = (6.02×1023 /mol)(1000 kg)/(2.014g/mol) = 2.99×1026 .
It takes two to make a fusion, so the energy released is
(3.27 MeV)(2.99×1026 )/2 = 4.89×1026 MeV.
That’s 7.8×1013 J, which is enough to burn the lamp for
t = (7.8×1013 J)/(100 W) = 7.8×1011 s = 24800 y.
E51-31 The potential energy at closest approach is

E51-36 (a) The number of particle of hydrogen in 1 m3 is
N = (0.35)(1.5×105 kg)(6.02×1023 /mol)/(0.001 kg/mol) = 3.16×1031
(b) The density of particles is N/V = p/kT ; the ratio is

(1.01×105 Pa)
E51-37 (a) There are
(1.00 kg)(6.02×1023 mol−1 )

(1g/mol)
atoms in 1.00 kg of 1 H. If four atoms fuse to releases 26.7 MeV, then
(26.7 MeV)(6.02×1026 )/4 = 4.0×1027 MeV
of energy could be released from 1.00 kg of 1 H.
(b) There are

(b) The fraction of the Sun’s mass “lost” is

E51-39 The rate of consumption is 6.2×1011 kg/s, the core has 1/8 the mass but only 35% is
hydrogen, so the time remaining is
t = (0.35)(1/8)(2.0×1030 kg)/(6.2×1011 kg/s) = 1.4×1017 s,
or about 4.5×109 years.
E51-40 For the ﬁrst two reactions into one:
Q = [2(1.007825) − (2.014102)](931.5 MeV) = 1.44 MeV.
For the second,
Q = [(1.007825) + (2.014102) − (3.016029)](931.5 MeV) = 5.49 MeV.
For the last,
Q = [2(3.016029) − (4.002603) − 2(1.007825)](931.5 MeV) = 12.86 MeV.

(b) For every 12 grams of carbon we require 32 grams of oxygen, the total is 44 grams. The total
mass required is then 40/12 that of carbon alone. The energy production is then
(3.3×107 J/kg)(12/44) = 9×106 J/kg.
(c) The sun would burn for
(2×1030 kg)(9×106 J/kg)

(3.9×1026 W)
That’s only 1500 years!
E51-42 The rate of fusion events is
(5.3×1030 W)

(7.27×106 eV)(1.6×10−19 J/eV)
The carbon is then produced at a rate
(4.56×1042 /s)(0.012 kg/mol)/(6.02×1023 /mol) = 9.08×1016 kg/s.
The process will be complete in

(b) For the reaction d-d,
Q = [2(2.014102) − (3.016029) − (1.007825)](931.5 MeV) = 4.03 MeV.
(c) For the reaction d-t,
Q = [(2.014102) + (3.016049) − (4.002603) − (1.008665)](931.5 MeV) = 17.59 MeV.

(0.002 kg/mol)
The energy available is
(3.27×106 eV)(1.6×10−19 J/eV)(4.5×1022 )/2 = 1.18×1010 J.
The power output is then

Combine the two reactions to get a net Q = 22.37 MeV. The amount of 6 Li required is

so the fundamental process is
γ → u + u.

E52-21 The slope is
(7000 km/s)
= 70 km/s · Mpc.
(100 Mpc)
E52-22 c = Hd, so
d = (3×105 km/s)/(72 km/s · Mpc) = 4300 Mpc.
E52-23 The question should read “What is the...”
The speed of the galaxy is
v = Hd = (72 km/s · Mpc)(240 Mpc) = 1.72×107 m/s.
The red shift of this would then be
λ = (656.3nm)
1 − (1.72×107 m/s)2 /(3×108 m/s)2
= 695 nm.
1 − (1.72×107 m/s)/(3×108 m/s)

E52-24 We can approximate the red shift as
λ = λ0 /(1 − u/c),
so

The distance is
d = v/H = (0.02)(3×108 m/s)/(72 km/s · Mpc) = 83 Mpc.
E52-25 The minimum energy required to produce the pairs is through the collision of two 140
MeV photons. This corresponds to a temperature of
T = (140 MeV)/(8.62×10−5 eV/K) = 1.62×1012 K.
This temperature existed at a time
t=
(1.5×1010 s1/2 K)2

E52-26 (a) λ ≈ 0.002 m.
(b) f = (3×108 m/s)/(0.002 m) = 1.5×1011 Hz.
(c) E = (1240 eV · nm)/(2×106 nm) = 6.2×10−4 eV.
E52-27 (a) Use Eq. 52-3:
t=
√
(1.5×1010 sK)2

(5000 K)2
That’s about 280,000 years.
(b) kT = (8.62×10−5 eV/K)(5000 K) = 0.43 eV.
(c) The ratio is
(109 )(0.43 eV)
= 0.457.

P52-1
The total energy of the pion is 135 + 80 = 215 MeV. The gamma factor of relativity is
γ = E/mc2 = (215 MeV)/(135 MeV) = 1.59,
so the velocity parameter is
β=
1 − 1/γ 2 = 0.777.
The lifetime of the pion as measured in the laboratory is
t = (8.4×10−17 s)(1.59) = 1.34×10−16 s,
so the distance traveled is
d = vt = (0.777)(3.00×108 m/s)(1.34×10−16 s) = 31 nm.

P52-2
(a) E = K + mc2 and pc =
pc =
E 2 − (mc2 )2 , so
(2200 MeV + 1777 MeV)2 − (1777 MeV)2 = 3558 MeV.
That’s the same as

(1.6×10−19 J/eV) = 1.90×10−18 kg · m/s

(b) T = 2(0.511 MeV)/(4.28×10−10 MeV/K) = 2.39×109 K.

Now invert,
z(1 − β) + 1 − β =

(z + 1)2 (1 − β)2 = 1 − β 2 ,
(z 2 + 2z + 1)(1 − 2β + β 2 ) = 1 − β 2 ,

(z + 2z + 2)β − 2(z 2 + 2z + 1)β + (z 2 + 2z) = 0.
Solve this quadratic for β, and

(b) Using the result,
β=

(4.43)2 + 2(4.43) + 2
(c) The distance is
d = v/H = (0.934)(3×108 m/s)/(72 km/s · Mpc) = 3893 Mpc.

Here n1 = 0.23 while n2 = 1 − 0.23, then
∆E = −(8.62×10−5 eV/K)(2.7 K) ln(0.23/0.77) = 2.8×10−4 eV.

P52-7 (a) The force on a particle in a spherical distribution of matter depends only on the matter
contained in a sphere of radius smaller than the distance to the center of the spherical distribution.
And then we can treat all that relevant matter as being concentrated at the center. If M is the total
mass, then
r3
M = M 3,
R
is the fraction of matter contained in the sphere of radius r < R. The force on a star of mass m a
distance r from the center is
F = GmM /r2 = GmM r/R3 .
This force is the source of the centripetal force, so the velocity is
√
v = ar = F r/m = r GM/R3 .
The time required to make a revolution is then
T =
2πr
= 2π
v
R3 /GM .
Note that this means that the system rotates as if it were a solid body!
(b) If, instead, all of the mass were concentrated at the center, then the centripetal force would
be
F = GmM/r2 ,
so
v=

ar =
F r/m =
GM/r,
and the period would be

P52-8 We will need to integrate Eq. 45-6 from 0 to λmin , divide this by I(T ), and set it equal to
z = 0.2×10−9 . Unfortunately, we need to know T to perform the integration. Writing what we do
know and then letting x = hc/λkT ,

The result is a small number, so we expect that xm is fairly large. We can then ignore the −1 in
the denominator and then write

zπ 4 /15 =

which easily integrates to
zπ 4 /15 ≈ xm 3 exm .
The solution is

so
