Let: k e = 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 . What is the magnitude of the electric field 2 . 5 cm from the center of the surfaces? Correct answer: 45 . 5982 N / C. Explanation: Let : q tot = 9 pC = 9 × 10 12 C , r 1 = 1 . 4 cm , r 2 = 3 . 4 cm , and r = 2 . 5 cm = 0 . 025 m . By Gauss’ law, Φ c = contintegraldisplay vector E · d vector A = q in ǫ 0 The tricky part of this question is to deter- mine the charge enclosed by our Gaussian surface, which by symmetry considerations is chosen to be a concentric sphere with radius r . Since the charge q is distributed uniformly within the solid, we have the relation q in q tot = V in V tot where q in and V in are the charge and volume enclosed by the Gaussian surface. Therefore q in = q tot parenleftbigg V in V tot parenrightbigg = q tot bracketleftbigg r 3 - r 3 1 r 3 2 - r 3 1 bracketrightbigg = (9 pC) × bracketleftbigg (2 . 5 cm) 3 - (1 . 4 cm) 3 (3 . 4 cm) 3 - (1 . 4 cm) 3 bracketrightbigg = 3 . 17092 pC = 3 . 17092 × 10 12 C . And by Gauss’s Law, E = k e q in r 2 = 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 × 3 . 17092 × 10 12 C (0 . 025 m) 2 = 45 . 5982 N / C . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A uniformly charged, straight filament 5 m in length has a total positive charge of 6 μ C. An uncharged cardboard cylinder 3 cm in length and 7 cm in radius surrounds the filament using the filament as its axis of symmetry, with the filament as the central axis of the cylinder. Find the total electric flux through the cylinder. Correct answer: 4065 . 96 N · m 2 / C. Explanation: Let : L = 5 m , r = 7 cm = 0 . 07 m , l = 3 cm = 0 . 03 m , and Q = 6 μ C = 6 × 10 6 C . Calculate the flux through the cylinder us- ing Gauss’ law. The flux through a closed surface is Φ = q enclosed ǫ 0 . Our Gaussian surface will be the cardboard tube, but we will close off the ends of the cylinder for our imaginary surface. We will assume that the filament is long enough (com- pared tp the cylinder) that field lines emerge from the filament only radially — they do not penetrate the caps on our Gaussian surface.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
