Unformatted text preview: Physics 240 Fall 2003: Exam #1 Please print your name:___________________________________________________ Please list your discussion section number:___________________________________ Please list your discussion instructor:________________________________________ Form #1 Instructions 1. Fill in your name above 2. This will be a 1.5 hour, closed book exam. The exam includes 20 questions. 3. You may use a calculator, please do not share calculators 4. You may use one 3x5 note card with notes and equations you think may be useful. You can write on both sides of the card if you like. 5. You will be asked to show your University student ID card when you turn in your exam. ID checked by:___________________________________ Table of constants: ! = 8.85x1012 C 2 /Nm 2 k = 1/(4 "! ) q electron =1.6x1019 C q proton =1.6x1019 C m electron =9.1x1031 kg m proton =1.67x1027 kg G = 6.67x1011 Nm 2 /kg 2 1: Imagine a uniform sphere of charge with a radius R and total charge Q. A point charge q placed on the surface of this sphere feels a repulsive force F=kqQ/R 2 . I now remove a small sphere of charge, centered on a point R/2 from the center of the sphere, with radius R/2, on the side opposite our test charge q. What is the magnitude of the force repelling q now? a) kqQ/2R 2 b) 17kqQ/18R 2 c) 3kqQ/4R 2 d) 7kqQ/8R 2 e) kqQ/R 2 2: Three identical objects, each with charge Q, sit on corners of a square with edge length L. What is the magnitude of the electrostatic force on the charge in the upper right corner? a) 2.8kQ 2 /L 2 b) kQ 2 /L 2 c) 1.4kQ 2 /L 2 d) 3.4kQ 2 /L 2 e) 2.0kQ 2 /L 2 Q q R q R Empty region Q Q Q L 3: Consider the electric dipole shown in the figure below. What is the electric field at a distance x along the perpendicular bisector of the dipole? a) y x kQ 2 # b) $ % y d x kQd 2 2 3 2 2 & ( ) * + , # c) $ % y d x kQ 2 2 , # d) x d x kQ 4 2 2 & & ( ) ) * + , e) Zero 4: An infinite plane of charge creates an electric field which is uniform in space, and has a magnitude  /2 ! . A finite disk of charge (radius R) creates a field which, along its central axis, has the value: Now, imagine an infinite plane of charge with charge density  , from which a hole of radius R has been removed. What is the magnitude of the electric a hole of radius R has been removed....
