1. (6 points) Three balls made of insulating material are suspended by insulating threads from a support. We know that ball X is positively charged. When ball X is brought near balls Y and Z without touching them, it attracts Y and repels Z. We can conclude that a) Y has a negative charge. b) Z has a negative charge. c) Y has a positive charge. d) Z is neutral (has no net charge.) e) Y is negatively charged or neutral (has no net charge.) 2. (8 points) A particle (mass = 5.0 g, charge = 40 mC) moves in a region of space where the electric field is uniform and is given by E x = 2.5 N/C, E y = E z = 0. If the
