zapata (jz883) – HW #2 – Antoniewicz – (56495) 1 This print-out should have 23 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. 001 (part 1 oF 4) 3.0 points A charge 1 . 1 × 10 5 C is fxed on the x -axis at 9 m, and a charge 8 × 10 6 C is fxed on the y -axis at 5 m, as shown on the diagram. 9 m 1 . 1 × 10 5 C 5 m 8 × 10 6 C Calculate the magnitude oF the resultant electric feld v E at the origin. Correct answer: 3124 . 29 N / C. Explanation: Let : k = 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 , Q x = 1 . 1 × 10 5 C , Q y = 8 × 10 6 C , Q = 3 × 10 6 C , x = 9 m , and y = 5 m . ±or charge Q x , | E x | = k | Q x | x 2 = (8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 ) × v v 1 . 1 × 10 5 C v v (9 m) 2 = 1220 . 53 N / C . ±or charge Q y , | E y | = k | Q y | y 2 = (8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 ) × 8 × 10 6 C (5 m) 2 = 2876 . 02 N / C . The resultant electric feld at the origin is shown on the diagram. 1220 . 53 N / C 2876 . 02 N / b v E Thus, b v E b = r E 2 x + E 2 y = r (1220 . 53 N / C) 2 + (2876 . 02 N / C) 2 = 3124 . 29 N / C . 002 (part 2 oF 4) 3.0 points Calculate the electric potential at the origin. Correct answer: 3395 . 3 V. Explanation: The electric potential oF a point charge is V = k q r , so the electric potential at the origin (due to charges Q x and Q y ) is thus V = k p Q x x + Q y y P = (8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 ) × p 1 . 1 × 10 5 C 9 m + 8 × 10 6 C 5 m P = 3395 . 3 V . 003 (part 3 oF 4) 2.0 points A 3 × 10 6 C charge is brought From a very distant point by an external Force and placed at the origin. Calculate the magnitude oF the electric Force on this charge.

zapata (jz883) – HW #2 – Antoniewicz – (56495) 2 Correct answer: 0 . 00937286 N. Explanation: We know that v F = q v E . The electric force on Q is shown on the diagram. x y b v F b v F b = | Q | b v E b = v v 3 × 10 6 C v v (3124 . 29 N / C) = 0 . 00937286 N . 004 (part 4 of 4) 2.0 points Calculate the work that had to be done by an external force to bring Q to the origin from the distant point. Correct answer: 0 . 0101859 J. Explanation: The external force must do work equal in magnitude to that done by the electric Feld; i.e. , equal to the change in electric potential energy: W = Q Δ V = ( 3 × 10 6 C) (3395 . 3 V 0) = 0 . 0101859 J . 005 10.0 points Two charges, 2 Q and + Q , are located on the x -axis, as shown below. Point P , at a distance of 3 D from the origin O , is one of two points on the positive x -axis at which the electric potential is zero. x 0 2 Q + Q P D D D How far d from the origin O is the other point?
