Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 4) 10.0 points Consider a disk of radius 3 . 3 cm with a uni formly distributed charge of +4 . 1 C. Compute the magnitude of the electric field at a point on the axis and 2 . 4 mm from the center. The value of the Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 . Correct answer: 6 . 2766 10 7 N / C. Explanation: Let : R = 3 . 3 cm = 0 . 033 m , k e = 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 , Q = 4 . 1 C = 4 . 1 10 6 C , and x = 2 . 4 mm = 0 . 0024 m . The surface charge density is = Q R 2 = 4 . 1 10 6 C (0 . 033 m) 2 = 0 . 00119841 C / m 2 . The field at the distance x along the axis of a disk with radius R is E = 2 k e 1 x x 2 + R 2 , Since 1 x x 2 + R 2 = 1 . 0024 m (0 . 0024 m) 2 + (0 . 033 m) 2 = 0 . 927464 , E = 2 (8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 ) (0 . 00119841 C / m 2 ) (0 . 927464) = 6 . 2766 10 7 N / C so E = 6 . 2766 10 7 N / C , 002 (part 2 of 4) 10.0 points Compute the field from the nearfield ap proximation x R . Correct answer: 6 . 76749 10 7 N / C. Explanation: x R , so the second term in the parenthe sis can be neglected and E approx = 2 k e = 2 ( 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 ) (0 . 00119841 C / m 2 ) = 6 . 76749 10 7 N / C close to the disk....
