Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points The current in a wire decreases with time according to the relationship I = (2 . 88 mA) e a t where a = 0 . 13328 s 1 . Determine the total charge that passes through the wire from t = 0 to the time the current has diminished to zero. Correct answer: 0 . 0216086 C. Explanation: I = dq dt q = integraldisplay t t =0 I dt = integraldisplay t =0 (0 . 00288 A) e . 13328 s 1 t dt = (0 . 00288 A ) e . 13328 s 1 t . 13328 s 1 vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = . 0216086 C . 002 10.0 points If 4 . 1 10 21 electrons pass through a 50 re sistor in 6 min, what is the potential difference across the resistor? Correct answer: 91 . 225 V. Explanation: Let : n = 4 . 1 10 21 , t = 6 min , R = 50 , and q e = 1 . 602 10 19 C . The current is defined as I = Q t . Since each electron carries a q e , we have I = n q e t = ( 4 . 1 10 21 ) (1 . 602 10 19 C) 6 min parenleftbigg 1 min 60 s parenrightbigg = 1 . 8245 A . Then from Ohms Law, V = I R = (1 . 8245 A) (50 ) = 91 . 225 V . 003 10.0 points A conductor with crosssectional area 9 cm 2 carries a current of 12 A. If the concentration of free electrons in the conductor is 7 10 28 electrons / m 3 , what is the drift velocity of the electrons? Correct answer: 0 . 00118886 mm / s. Explanation: Let : I = 12 A , n = 7 10 28 electrons / m 3 , q e = 1 . 60218 10 19 C , and A = 9 cm 2 = 0 . 0009 m 2 . The current in a conductor is given by I = n q v d A , where n is the number of charge carriers per unit volume, q is the charge per carrier, v d is the drift velocity of the carriers and A is the cross section of the conduction. Solving for v d , we have v d = I n q A = 12 A 7 10 28 electrons / m 3 1 1 . 60218 10 19 C 1 . 0009 m 2 1000 mm 1 m = . 00118886 mm / s . sanne (as42476) Homework 05 Yao (59110) 2 004 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Consider two cylindrical conductors made of the same ohmic material. Conductor 1 has a radius r 1 and length 1 while conductor 2 has a radius r 2 and length 2 . Denote: The currents of the two conductors as I 1 and I 2 , the potential differences between the two ends of the conductors as V 1 and V 2 , and the electric fields within the conductors as E 1 and E 2 . V 1 vector E 1 I 1 1 r 1 b V 2 vector E 2 I 2 2 r 2 b If 2 = 1 , r 2 = 2 r 1 , 2 = 3 1 and V 2 = V 1 , find the ratio R 2 R 1 of the resistances....
