Version 1 Page 1 1. We would like to use the induction method to negatively charge one of the isolated copper spheres used in the lecture demonstrations. Consider the following procedural steps: (1) attach a ground wire to the sphere (2) remove the ground wire from the sphere (3) touch a negatively charged rod to the sphere (4) bring a + charged rod near, but not touching, the sphere (5) remove the charged rod To charge the copper sphere by induction, one can use the sequence of steps: A) 3, 5 B) 1, 4, 5, 2 C) 4, 1, 5, 2 D) 4, 1, 2, 5 E) 3, 1, 2, 5 2. The diagrams below depict four different charge distributions. The charged particles are all the same distance from the origin. Rank the distributions by the electric potential V at the origin, from lowest to highest potential . (Take V=0 at infinity in each case) A) 2, 3, 1, 4 B) 4, 3, 2, 1 C) 3, 1, 4, 2 D) 1, 3, 2, 4 E) 1, 4, 2, 3 3. A point charge of 8 μ C is placed on the x axis at x=2.0 meters. Where on the x axis in meters should we place a point charge of -2.0 μ C so that the total force on a third point charge at the origin (x=0) is zero? A) 0.5 m B) -2.0 m C) 1.0 m D) -0.5 m E) -1.0 m

Version 1 Page 2 4. A dipole is released from rest near an isolated point charge. Describe its subsequent motion. Point charge P A) It begins to rotate and moves away from the point charge B) It begins to rotate and moves toward the point charge C) It does not rotate and it does not translate D) It does not rotate but it does move away from the point charge E) It does not rotate but it does move toward the point charge 5. A charged oil drop with a mass of 2 × 10 –4 kg is held suspended by a downward electric field of 300 N/C. The charge on the drop is: A) +6.5 × 10 –6 C B) –6.5 × 10 –6 C C) –1.5 × 10 –6 C D) 0 E) +1.5 × 10 –6 C 6. An insulator in the shape of a sphere with radius R has positive charge uniformly distributed throughout its volume. If the zero of electric potential is taken to be at
