Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points The electron gun in a television tube is used to accelerate electrons (mass of 9 . 10939 10 31 kg and charge of 1 . 60218 10 19 C) from rest to 2 10 7 m / s within a distance of 6 . 7 cm. What electric field is required? Correct answer: 16972 N / C. Explanation: Let : m e = 9 . 10939 10 31 kg , q e = 1 . 60218 10 19 C , v = 2 10 7 m / s , and d = 6 . 7 cm . The magnitude of the force is F = q e E = m e a a = q e E m e The final velocity is v 2 f = v 2 i + 2 a d = 2 a d since v i = 0, so v 2 = 2 d q e E m e E = v 2 m e 2 d q e = parenleftBig 2 10 7 m / s 2 parenrightBig ( 9 . 10939 10 31 kg ) 2 (6 . 7 cm) (1 . 60218 10 19 C) = 16972 N / C . 002 10.0 points A 124 cm diameter loop is rotated in a uniform electric field until the position of maximum electric flux is found. The flux in this position is measured to be 3 . 23 10 5 N m 2 / C. What is the electric field strength? Correct answer: 2 . 67466 10 5 N / C. Explanation: Let : r = 62 cm = 0 . 62 m and = 3 . 23 10 5 N m 2 / C . By Gauss law, = contintegraldisplay vector E d vector A The position of maximum electric flux will be that position in which the plane of the loop is perpendicular to the electric field; i.e. , when vector E d vector A = E dA . Since the field is constant, = E A = E r 2 E = r 2 = 3 . 23 10 5 N m 2 / C (0 . 62 m) 2 = 2 . 67466 10 5 N / C . 003 10.0 points A (4 . 13 m by 4 . 13 m) square base pyramid with height of 4 . 92 m is placed in a vertical electric field of 38 . 8 N / C. b 4 . 13 m 4 . 92 m 38 . 8 N / C Calculate the total electric flux which goes out through the pyramids four slanted sur faces. Correct answer: 661 . 808 N m 2 / C. Explanation: Let : s = 4 . 13 m , h = 4 . 92 m , and E = 38 . 8 N / C . sanne (as42476) Homework 02 Yao (59110) 2 By Gauss law, = vector E vector A Since there is no charge contained in the pyra mid, the net flux through the pyramid must be 0 N/C. Since the field is vertical, the flux through the base of the pyramid is equal and opposite to the flux through the four sides. Thus we calculate the flux through the base of the pyramid, which is = E A = E s 2 = (38 . 8 N / C) (4 . 13 m) 2 = 661 . 808 N m 2 / C . 004 10.0 points A cubic box of side a , oriented as shown, con tains an unknown charge. The vertically di rected electric field has a uniform magnitude E at the top surface and 2 E at the bottom surface. a E 2 E How much charge Q is inside the box?...
