Q1: A cylindrical resistor of radius 5 mm and length 2 cm is made of material that has a resistivity of m x 5 10 5 . 3 . When the energy dissipation rate in the resistor is 1.0 W, what are; a) the current b) the magnitude of the current density c) the potential difference and d) the magnitude of the electric field ? Q2: A heating element is made by maintaining a potential difference of 75 V across the length of a Nichrome wire that has a 2.6 x 10 -6 m 2 cross section. Nichrome has a resistivity of 5x10 -7 m . . If the element dissipates 5000W, a) what is its length?, b) what is the current flowing through the wire?, and c) what is the electric field within the wire?

Unformatted text preview: d) If 100V is used to obtain the same dissipation rate, what should be the new length? Q3: Three cylindrical resistors X, Y and Z are connected in a circuit as shown in the figure. X and Y have the same length L and cross-sectional area A. The resistor Z has length 2L and cross-sectional area A/2. The resistivity constants of the materials are shown in the figure. Resistors are connected to an ideal battery of 84 V. If the resistance of Y is 6 ; a) Calculate the equivalent resistance of the circuit. b) Find the rate at which electrical energy is dissipated in the resistor X. X Y = 6 Z 84 V 2...
