kavo (ak22862) – HW03 – Janow – (12121) 1 This print-out should have 15 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 4) 15.0 points A good model for a radio antenna is a dipole. In the figure below P 1 is on the perpendic- ular bisector of the dipole, and P 2 is along the axis of the dipole in the direction of the dipole vector ˆ p . P 1 and P 2 are both a distance 100 m from the center of the dipole. The magnitude of each of the charges is 5 μ C . + 1 . 4 m vectorp P 2 ( 100 m , 0) P 1 (0 , 100 m) What is the magnitude of the electric field at P 1 ? Hint: The direction of the dipole vector ˆ p is from the negative charge to the positive charge. Correct answer: 0 . 0629129 N / C. Explanation: Let : r = 100 m , d = 1 . 4 m , and q = 5 μ C = 5 × 10 6 C . + vectorp P 2 P 1 E + E E + E The electric field E 1 is E 1 = 2 1 4 π ǫ 0 q r 2 + parenleftbigg d 2 parenrightbigg 2 sin θ Since sin θ = d 2 bracketleftBigg r 2 + parenleftbigg d 2 parenrightbigg 2 bracketrightBigg 1 / 2 , E 1 = 1 4 π ǫ 0 q d bracketleftBigg r 2 + parenleftbigg d 2 parenrightbigg 2 bracketrightBigg 3 / 2 1 4 π ǫ 0 q d r 3 , for r d , so vector E 1 ≈ − 1 4 π ǫ 0 q d r 3 ˆ p ≈ − 1 4 π ǫ 0 (5 × 10 6 C)(1 . 4 m) (100 m) 3 ˆ p ≈ − 0 . 0629129 N / C ˆ p | E 1 | ≈ 0 . 0629129 N / C . The cos θ components cancel due to symme- try. 002 (part 2 of 4) 15.0 points What is the direction of the electric field vector E 1 at P 1 ? 1. In a direction perpendicular to both the dipole vector ˆ p and ˆ r . 2. In the direction of ˆ r . 3. In a direction perpendicular to the dipole vector; e.g. , ˆ p . 4. In the direction of the dipole vector; e.g. , ˆ p . 5. In the direction opposite to that of the dipole vector; e.g. , ˆ p . correct Explanation: The electric field goes from positive charge to negative charge. The dipole vector vectorp is shown in the figure in the question. 003 (part 3 of 4) 10.0 points

### What students are saying

• 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.
