Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Consider two cylindrical conductors made of the same ohmic material. Conductor 1 has a radius r 1 and length 1 while conductor 2 has a radius r 2 and length 2 . Denote: The currents of the two conductors as I 1 and I 2 , the potential differences between the two ends of the conductors as V 1 and V 2 , and the electric fields within the conductors as E 1 and E 2 . V 1 vector E 1 I 1 1 r 1 b V 2 vector E 2 I 2 2 r 2 b If 2 = 1 , r 2 = 2 r 1 , 2 = 3 1 and V 2 = V 1 , find the ratio R 2 R 1 of the resistances. 1. R 2 R 1 = 3 2. R 2 R 1 = 2 3. R 2 R 1 = 3 2 4. R 2 R 1 = 2 3 5. R 2 R 1 = 4 3 6. R 2 R 1 = 1 3 7. R 2 R 1 = 4 8. R 2 R 1 = 3 4 correct 9. R 2 R 1 = 1 2 10. R 2 R 1 = 1 4 Explanation: The relation between resistance and resis tivity is given by R = A = r 2 . Then since r 2 = 2 r 1 and 2 = 3 1 , the ratio of the resistances is R 2 R 1 = 2 r 2 2 r 2 1 1 = 2 r 2 1 1 r 2 2 = (3 1 ) r 2 1 1 (2 r 1 ) 2 = 3 4 . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points When the two conductors are attached to a battery of voltage V, determine the ratio E 2 E 1 of the electric fields. 1. E 2 E 1 = 3 4 2. E 2 E 1 = 1 2 3. E 2 E 1 = 3 2 4. E 2 E 1 = 1 4 5. E 2 E 1 = 4 3 6. E 2 E 1 = 4 7. E 2 E 1 = 2 3 8. E 2 E 1 = 1 3 correct 9.
