Unformatted text preview: Problem 4 A copper cable is designed to carry a current of 300 A with a power loss of 2.00 W/m. What is the required radius of this cable? (Resistivity of copper is approximately p =l .7x10"3 am) a) r=0.077m b) r=7.7x10_4 m c —l.011 m d r=0.016 m c) r=1.5xlO m Problem 5 A microbiologist measures the total current due to potassium ions (K+) moving through a cell membrane of a rock crab neuron cell to be 30 nA. How many ions pass through the membrane each second? = a) 2.50 nmole b) 0.050 pmole c) 1.88 nmole d) 1.88 mole Problem 6 The resistivity of copper as a function of temperature is given approximately by p = po[1 + a(T- To)] where p =1.7x10’8 Q-m at T=20 IC and a = 4.3):10'3 C".
