Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points It takes 112 J of work to move 3 C of charge from a positive plate to a negative plate. What voltage difference exists between the plates? Correct answer: 37 . 3333 V. Explanation: Let : W = 112 J and q = 3 C . The voltage difference is V = W q = 112 J 3 C = 37 . 3333 V . 002 10.0 points The magnitude of a uniform electric field be- tween the two plates is about 2 10 5 N / C. If the distance between these plates is . 1 cm, find the potential difference between the plates. Correct answer: 200 V. Explanation: Let : E = 2 10 5 N / C and d = 0 . 1 cm = 0 . 001 m . The magnitude of the potential difference is V = E d = (2 10 5 N / C) (0 . 001 m) = 200 V . 003 10.0 points The Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 and the acceleration of gravity is 9 . 81 m / s 2 . Find the potential difference between a point infinitely far away and a point 1 . 3 cm from a proton. Correct answer: 1 . 10646 10 7 V. Explanation: Let : r = 1 . 3 cm , k e = 8 . 99 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 , and q p = 1 . 60 10 19 C . V = k e q r V = (8 . 99 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 ) 1 . 60 10 19 C . 013 m = 1 . 10646 10 7 V . 004 10.0 points Consider charges placed at the corners of a rectangle: Let: k e = 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 and g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . b P 0.42 m 0.16 m + 5 . C-- 15 C-- 7 . C Find the electric potential at point P due to the grouping of charges at the other corners of the rectangle. Correct answer:- 5 . 86326 10 5 V. Explanation: Let : q 1 = 5 .
