Assignment 4 Due: 11:59pm on Sunday, November 21, 2010 Note: To understand how points are awarded, read your instructor's Grading Policy . [ Switch to Standard Assignment View] Placing Charges Conceptual Question Below are free-body diagrams for three electric charges that lie in the same plane. Their relative positions are unknown. Part A Along which of the lines (A to H) in the figure should charge 2 be placed so that the free-body diagrams of charge 1 and charge 2 are consistent? Hint A.1 How to approach the problem Newton’s 3rd law states that the forces exerted by a pair of objects on each other are always equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. Identifying the forces that correspond to 3rd-law pairs in the free-body diagrams will enable you to place the particles in their proper relative position. Hint A.2 Placing charge 2 Hint not displayed ANSWER: Correct Part B Along which of the lines (A to H) in the figure should charge 3 be placed so that the MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View http://session.masteringphysics.com/myct/assignmentPrintView. .. 1 of 10 11/20/10 8:13 PM
