Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A long coaxial cable consists of an inner cylin- drical conductor with radius R 1 and an outer cylindrical conductor shell with inner radius R 2 and outer radius R 3 as shown. The ca- ble extends out perpendicular to the plane shown. The charge on the inner conductor per unit length along the cable is λ and the corresponding charge on the outer conductor per unit length is- λ (same in magnitudes but with opposite signs) and λ > 0. Q R 1 R 2 R 3 b- Q Find the magnitude of the electric field at the point a distance r 1 from the axis of the inner conductor, where R 1 < r 1 < R 2 . 1. E = λR 1 4 π ǫ r 1 2 2.

E = 2 λ √ 3 π ǫ r 1 Explanation: Pick a cylindrical Gaussian surface with the radius r 1 and apply the Gauss’s law; we obtain E · ℓ · 2 π r 1 = Q ǫ E = λ 2 π ǫ r 1 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points For a 100 m length of coaxial cable with inner radius 0 . 673218 mm and outer radius 1 . 83048 mm. Find the capacitance C of the cable. Correct answer: 5 . 56178 nF. Explanation: Let : ℓ = 100 m , R 1 = 0 . 673218 mm , and R 2 = 1 . 83048 mm . We calculate the potential across the capaci- tor by integrating-E · d s. We may choose a path of integration along a radius; i.e.,-E · d s =-E dr .
