The electric field strength E 1 r 2 , so E A E B = 1 r 2 A 1 r 2 B = r 2 B r 2 A = (2 r ) 2 r 2 = 4 . 002 (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 on the x axis? Assume that x > x 2 > x 1 and k e = 1 4 . 1.

Recall that for a uniform linear charge dis- tribution, dq = dx = Q L dx = Q x 2 x 1 dx . Furthermore, the point x is a distance ( x 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 x ) 2 dx . 003 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points If x 1 = 0 m, x 2 = 4 . 48 m and the charge Q = 3 . 07 C, what is the magnitude E of the electric field at x = 9 . 9 m? Correct answer: 514 . 216 N / C. Explanation: Let : k e = 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 , x 1 = 0 m , x 2 = 4 . 48 m , x = 9 . 9 m , and Q = 3 . 07 C . oliver (jmo673) HW02 Tsoi (59090) 2 E = integraldisplay x 2 x 1 k e Q ( x 2 x 1 )( x x ) 2 dx = k e Q ( x 2 x 1 )( x x ) vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle x 2 x 1 = ( 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 ) (4 . 48 m 0 m) (3 . 07 10 6 C) bracketleftbigg 1 9 . 9 m 4 . 48 m 1 9 . 9 m 0 m bracketrightbigg = 514 . 216 N / C . 004 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Consider the setup shown in the figure be- low, where the arc is a semicircle with radius r . The total charge Q is negative, and dis- tributed uniformly on the semicircle. The charge on a small segment with angle is labeled q . x y r x y I II III IV B A O q is given by 1. q = Q 2. q = Q 2 3. q = Q 4. q = Q 2 5. q = 2 Q 6.
