Practice Problems for Prelim I, PHY 122 1. Look at the figure below. Find the following: a. What is the electric field and electric potential at point A? b. What is the electric force and the electric potential energy of q1? c. What is the electric potential at point B? d. Move a charge of 2µC and 0.9 kg from point A to point B. How much work did the electric field do on this charge? e. Assuming the 2µC charge started from rest, what is its velocity at point B? 2. Look at the two charges given below. Where between the charges is the electric field equal to zero? Is the electric potential also equal to zero at this point? 3. The point X and Y are both equidistant from a positively charged rod. If I move a charge

Q2 = 8x10-6 C Q1 = 6x10-6 C 0.3 m 0.4 m 0.4 m B A 0.3 m Q3 = 8x10-6 C 0.5x10-6 C 7x10-6 C 2m Y X 4. For a point charge, we derived an expression from Gauss’s law for the electric field a distance r away. You have a point charge of +2q centered in a conductive spherical shell of inner diameter a and outer diameter b. You place +8q on the spherical shell. Find the following: a. What is the electric field for r<a? b. What is the electric field for a<r<b? c. What is the electric field for r>b? d. What is the CHARGE on the inner radius of the shell?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
