Lehigh University January 27, 2010 Physics 21, Spring 2010 Home Work Assignment 5 Note: Solutions to the problems must be submitted on WileyPLUS (www.wileyplus.com). HW-5 due February 3, 2010 (12 AM online) HW5-1(Chapter 24 Q3) In Fig. 24.23, eight particles form a square, with distance d between adjacent particles. What is the electric potential at point P at the center of the square if the electric potential is zero at infinity? HW5-2 (Chapter 24 P1) Much of the material making up Saturn's rings is in the form of tiny dust grains having radii on the order of 10 –6 m. These grains are located in a region containing a dilute ionized gas, and they pick up excess electrons. As an approximation, suppose each grain is spherical, with radius R = 1.3 x 10 –6 m. How many electrons would one grain have to pick up to have a potential of –490 V on its surface (taking V = 0 at infinity)? HW5-3 (Chapter 24 P9)The electric field in a region of space has the components E y = E z = 0 and E x = (3.20 N/(C·m)) x . Point A is on the y axis at y = 4.40 m, and point B is on the x axis at x = 5.90 m. What is the potential difference (in V)

    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.
