Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A positron (a particle with a charge of + e and a mass equal to that of an electron) that is accelerated from rest between two points at a fixed potential difference acquires a speed of 8 . 5 10 7 m / s. What speed is achieved by a proton acceler- ated from rest between the same two points?

Explanation: Let : v f,positron = 8 . 5 10 7 m / s , m positron = 9 . 109 10 31 kg , m pr = 1 . 673 10 27 kg , and q pr = q positron = 1 . 60 10 19 C . Since K i = 0 J , K f = U 1 2 mv 2 f = q V . V = m positron ( v f,positron ) 2 2 q positron = (9 . 109 10 31 kg) (8 . 5 10 7 m / s) 2 2 (1 . 60 10 19 C) = 20566 . 4 V . Thus v f,pr = radicalBigg 2 U electric m pr = radicalBigg 2 ( q pr V ) m pr = radicalBigg 2 (1 . 60 10 19 C) (20566 . 4 V) 1 . 673 10 27 kg = 1 . 98338 10 6 m / s . 002 10.0 points Consider a long, uniformly charged, cylindri- cal insulator of radius R with charge density 1 . 5 C / m 3 . (The volume of a cylinder with radius r and length is V = r 2 .) The value of the Permittivity of free space is 8 . 85419 10 12 C 2 / N m 2 R 1 . 9 cm What is the magnitude of the electric field inside the insulator at a distance 1 . 9 cm from the axis (1 . 9 cm &lt; R )? 1. 1524.7 2. 993.88 3. 2360.46 4. 1609.41 5. 2111.99 6. 931.762 7. 1716.7 8. 2467.76 9. 1502.11 10. 1129.41 Correct answer: 1609 . 41 N / C. Explanation: Let : r = 1 . 9 cm = 0 . 019 m , = 1 . 5 C / m 3 = 1 . 5 10 6 C / m 3 , and = 8 . 85419 10 12 C 2 / N m 2 . Version 096/ABCAA midterm 01a turner (56725) 2 Consider a cylindrical Gaussian surface of radius r and length much less than the length of the insulator so that the compo- nent of the electric field parallel to the axis is negligible. r R The flux leaving the ends of the Gaussian cylinder is negligible, and the only contribu- tion to the flux is from the side of the cylinder. Since the field is perpendicular to this surface, the flux is s = 2 r E , and the charge enclosed by the surface is Q enc = r 2 . Using Gauss law, s = Q enc 2 r E = r 2 . Thus E = 2 r = ( 1 . 5 10 6 C / m 3 ) (0 . 019 m) 2 (8 . 85419 10 12 C 2 / N m 2 ) = 1609 . 41 N / C ....
