Page 2 of 12 Question 1 (a) Two equally charged particles are initially held at a distance of 3.2 10 - 3 m apart and then released from rest. The initial acceleration of one particle (of mass 6.3 10 - 7 kg) is 7.0 m/s 2 and for the other particle the acceleration is 9.0 m/s 2 . (i) Calculate the mass of the second particle. (2 marks) (ii) Calculate the magnitude of the charge on both particles. (2 marks) (b) At a certain position along the central z -axis of a uniformly charged plastic disk of radius R , the magnitude of the electric field is one half of the magnitude at the exact centre of the disk. Determine the value of z in terms of R . (4 marks) (c) By applying Gauss’ law including a suitably drawn Gaussian surface, obtain an equation for the
