Kapoor (mk9499) – homework04 – Turner – (60230) 1 This print-out should have 11 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A charge Q is distributed uniformly along the x axis from x 1 to x 2 . The Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 Which of the following integrals is correct for the magnitude of the electric field at x 0 on the x axis? Assume that x 0 > x 2 > x 1 and k e = 1 4 πǫ 0 . 1.

Recall that for a uniform linear charge dis- tribution, dq = λ dx = Q L dx = Q x 2 x 1 dx . Furthermore, the point x 0 is a distance ( x 0 x ) from a charge element dq . Hence integrating from x = x 1 to x = x 2 yields E = integraldisplay x 2 x 1 k e Q ( x 2 x 1 )( x 0 x ) 2 dx . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points If x 1 = 0 m, x 2 = 5 . 59 m and the charge Q = 3 . 49 μ C, what is the magnitude E of the electric field at x 0 = 8 . 2 m? Correct answer: 1465 . 59 N / C. Explanation: Let : k e = 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 , x 1 = 0 m , x 2 = 5 . 59 m , x 0 = 8 . 2 m , and Q = 3 . 49 μ C .

    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.
