Correct answer: 5 . 6 × 10 − 13 J. Explanation: Let : Δ V = 3 . 5 × 10 6 V and q = 1 . 60 × 10 − 19 C . Δ K = Δ U = q Δ V = (1 . 60 × 10 − 19 C) (3 . 5 × 10 6 V) = 5 . 6 × 10 − 13 J . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points b) If the proton started at rest, how fast is it moving? Correct answer: 2 . 58738 × 10 7 m / s. Explanation: Let : m = 1 . 673 × 10 − 27 kg . Since K i = 0 J , Δ K = K f = 1 2 mv 2 f v f = radicalbigg 2 K f m = radicalBigg 2 (5 . 6 × 10 − 13 J) 1 . 673 × 10 − 27 kg = 2 . 58738 × 10 7 m / s . 003 10.0 points Points A (3 m, 3 m) and B (6 m, 8 m) are in a region where the electric field is uniform and given by vector E = E x ˆ ı + E y ˆ , where E x = 5 N / C and E y = 4 N / C. What is the potential difference V A- V B ? Correct answer: 35 V. Explanation: Let : E x = 5 N / C , E y = 4 N / C , ( x A ,y A ) = (3 m , 3 m) , and ( x B ,y B ) = (6 m , 8 m) . We know V ( A )- V ( B ) =- integraldisplay A B vector E · dvectors = integraldisplay B A vector E · dvectors For a uniform electric field vector E = E x ˆ ı + E y ˆ . Now consider the term E x ˆ ı · dvectors in the inte- grand. E x is just a constant and ˆ ı · dvectors may be interpreted as the projection of dvectors onto x , so that E x ˆ ı · dvectors = E x dx. Likewise E y ˆ · dvectors = E y dy . Or more simply, dvectors = dx ˆ ı + dy ˆ dotting it with E x ˆ ı + E y ˆ gives the same result as above. Therefore V A- V B = E x integraldisplay x B x A dx + E y integraldisplay y B y A dy = (5 N / C) (6 m- 3 m) + (4 N / C) (8 m- 3 m) = 35 V . Note that the potential difference is inde- pendent of the path taken from A to B. 004 10.0 points Reilly (mar3978) – homework 08 – Turner – (56725) 2 Consider a circular arc of constant linear charge density λ as shown below. x y 3 4 π + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + O r What is the potential V O at the origin O due to this arc? 1. V O = 3 20 λ ǫ 2. V O = 0 3. V O = 5 32 λ ǫ 4. V O = 1 7 λ ǫ 5. V O = 5 24 λ ǫ 6. V O = 5 36 λ ǫ 7. V O = 1 5 λ ǫ 8. V O = 3 28 λ ǫ 9. V O = 3 16 λ ǫ correct 10. V O = 5 28 λ ǫ Explanation: The potential at a point due to a continuous charge distribution can be found using V = k e integraldisplay dq r . In this case, with linear charge density λ, dq = λds = λr dθ , so V = k e integraldisplay 3 4 π λdθ = 1 4 π ǫ integraldisplay 3 4 π λdθ = λ 4 π ǫ θ vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 3 4 π = λ 4 π ǫ parenleftbigg 3 4 π- parenrightbigg = 3 16 λ ǫ ....
