marout (ssm979) – ohw 12 – turner – (56725) 1 This print-out should have 17 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points A total charge oF 8.2 mC passes through a cross-sectional area oF a nichrome wire in 1 . 6 s. a) What is the current in the wire? Correct answer: 0 . 005125 A. Explanation: Let : Δ Q 1 = 8 . 2 mC and Δ t 1 = 1 . 6 s . I = Δ Q Δ t = 0 . 0082 C 1 . 6 s = 0 . 005125 A . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points b) How many electrons pass through the cross-sectional area in 12.0 s? Correct answer: 3 . 84375 × 10 17 . Explanation: Let : q e = 1 . 6 × 10 19 C and Δ t 2 = 12 . 0 s . Δ Q = N q e N = Δ Q q e = I Δ t 2 q e = (0 . 005125 A)(12 s) 1 . 6 × 10 19 C = 3 . 84375 × 10 17 . 003 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points c) IF the number oF charges that pass through the cross-sectional area during the given time interval doubles, what is the resulting cur- rent? Correct answer: 0 . 01025 A. Explanation: Let : Δ Q 2 = 2 Δ Q 1 . I = 2 Δ Q 1 Δ t 1 = 2 (0 . 0082 C) 1 . 6 s = 0 . 01025 A . 004 10.0 points An electrician fnds that a 1 . 1 m length oF a certain type oF wire has a resistance oF 0 . 22 Ω. What is the total resistance oF the 146 m oF this wire he plans to use to wire a house? Correct answer: 29 . 2 Ω. Explanation: Let : 1 = 1 . 1 m , 2 = 146 m , and R = 0 . 22 Ω . A 1 . 1 m length oF the wire has a resistance oF λ = R 1 , so the total resistance oF the wire is R tot = λ ℓ = R 1 = p 0 . 22 Ω 1 . 1 m P (146 m) = 29 . 2 Ω . 005 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Suppose that a uniForm wire oF resistance R is stretched uniFormly to N times its original length. Assume the total volume oF the wire re- mains the same, and the volume is given by the product oF the cross sectional area and the length. Denote the original area by A and the area aFter the stretch by A .
