Name ___________________________________ Student ID ____________ Score _______ last first Physics 122A, Winter 09, Version A Exam 3, page 1 I. Spherical Capacitor Two thin concentric spherical conducting shells are used as a capacitor. The radii are 10 cm and 30 cm, respectively, and each sphere is originally uncharged. Electrons are removed from the inner sphere and transferred to the outer sphere until the net charge on the outer sphere is Q = 1 . 0 x 10 -6 C. After this, the spheres remain electrically isolated for questions 1-4 below. 1. (3 pts) Which choice best represents the charge distribution for the spheres? A. Positive on outer skin of inner sphere, negative on inner skin of outer sphere. B. Positive on outer skin of inner sphere, negative on outer skin of outer sphere. C. Positive on inner skin of inner sphere, negative on inner skin of outer sphere. D. Positive on inner skin of inner sphere, negative on outer skin of outer sphere. E. Positive inside volume of inner sphere, negative on inner skin of outer sphere. 2. (4 pts) Which choice best represents equipotential surfaces near these spheres? A B C D E 60 cm 20 cm

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
