Unformatted text preview: Physics 1B: Electricity & Magnetism Summer Session I, 2010 Quiz #2, July 8, 2010 This is version A ! Useful coefficients: Mass of proton, m p = 1 . 67 10 27 kg; Mass of electron, m e = 9 . 11 10 31 kg Unit of elementary charge e = 1 . 6 10 19 C Coulombs constant, k e = 8 . 99 10 9 N m 2 C 2 Permittivity of free space = 1 4 k e = 8 . 85 10 12 C 2 N 1 m 2 1 eV = 1.6 10 19 J g = 9 . 8 m s 2 Questions 1 & 2: You are given 7 identical capacitors, each with capacitance 14 mF. They are all connected IN SERIES with a 9-V battery. 1: Calculate the equivalent capacitance. a. 0.14 mF b. 0.5 mF c. 2 mF d. 49 mF e. 14 mF 2: While the capacitors are all kept connected to the battery, a dielectric material with a dielectric constant = 2 . 0 is inserted into the gaps of each capacitor. What is the ra- tio of the equivalent capacitance now to that derived in problem 1, i.e., what is C eq , 2 / C eq , 1 ? a. 1/ b. 7/ c. d. / 7 e. 7 Solution for Number 1: Let C denote the capacitance on each individual capacitor. 1 C eq, 1 = 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C = 7 C 1 C eq, 1 = 1 14 mF + 1 14 mF + 1 14 mF + 1 14 mF + 1 14 mF + 1 14 mF + 1 14 mF = 7 14 mF = 1 2 mF C eq , 1 = C 7 = 2 mF. 1 Solution for Number 2: Let C denote the original capacitance, before the dielectrics are inserted. When the dielectrics are inserted, we have C C on each capacitor. 1 C eq, 2 = 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C + 1 C = 1 7 C Taking the reciprocal of both sides, we get C eq, 2 = C 7 = C eq, 1 So C eq , 2 / C eq , 1 = 3. Consider a circuit consisting of five identical resistors (the resistance R in each resistor is identical) all connected in series to a 9-volt battery. A current of 0.18 Amps flows through the circuit. What is the resistance of EACH resistor?the circuit....
