Unformatted text preview: sanne (as42476) Homework 01 Yao (59110) 1 This print-out should have 21 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points The five thousand billion freely moving elec- trons in a penny repel one another. Why dont they fly off the penny? 1. The electrons attract each other. 2. They are attracted to the five thou- sand billion positively charged protons in the atomic nuclei of atoms in the penny. correct 3. They dont have enough speed. 4. The shell of the penny prevents the elec- trons from flying. 5. They cause a jam when they try to fly away. Explanation: The electrons are bound to the nuclei. 002 10.0 points Two uncharged metal balls, X and Z , stand on insulating glass rods. A third ball, carrying a negative charge, is brought near the ball Z as shown in the figure. A conducting wire is then run between X and Z and then removed. Finally the third ball is removed. Z X conducting wire When all this is finished 1. ball X is neutral and ball Z is negative. 2. ball X is negative and ball Z is positive. correct 3. balls X and Z are both negative. 4. ball X is positive and ball Z is neutral. 5. balls X and Z are still uncharged. 6. balls X and Z are both positive, but ball Z carries more charge than ball X . 7. balls X and Z are both positive, but ball X carries more charge than ball Z . 8. ball X is neutral and ball Z is positive. 9. ball X is negative and ball Z is neutral. 10. ball X is positive and ball Z is negative. Explanation: When the conducting wire is run between X and Z , some negative charge flows from Z to X under the influence of the negative charge of the third ball. Therefore, after the wire is removed, X is charged negative and Z is charged positive. 003 10.0 points A particle of mass 66 g and charge 31 C is released from rest when it is 65 cm from a second particle of charge 28 C. Determine the magnitude of the initial ac- celeration of the 66 g particle. Correct answer: 279 . 762 m / s 2 . Explanation: Let : m = 66 g , q = 31 C = 3 . 1 10 5 C , d = 65 cm = 0 . 65 m , Q = 28 C = 2 . 8 10 5 C , and k e = 8 . 9875 10 9 .
