Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A 47 m length of coaxial cable has a solid cylindrical wire inner conductor with a di ameter of 1 . 445 mm and carries a charge of 5 . 86 C. The surrounding conductor is a cylindrical shell and has an inner diameter of 5 . 293 mm and a charge of 5 . 86 C. Assume the region between the conductors is air. The Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 . What is the capacitance of this cable? Correct answer: 2 . 014 nF. Explanation: Let : k e = 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 , Q = 5 . 86 C , = 47 m , a = 1 . 445 mm , and b = 5 . 293 mm . The charge per unit length is Q .

After 2 . 1529 10 14 have been transferred, the potential difference between the conductors is 6 . 2 V. The charge on an electron is 1 . 60218 10 19 C . What is the capacitance of the system? Correct answer: 5 . 56343 10 6 F. Explanation: Let : e = 1 . 60218 10 19 C , N = 2 . 1529 10 14 electrons , and V = 6 . 2 V . One conductor gains a charge of Q = N e while the other gains a charge of Q. The capacitance of the system is C = q V = N e V = (2 . 1529 10 14 ) ( 1 . 60218 10 19 C) 6 . 2 V = 5 . 56343 10 6 F . hussain (wh4892) hw 5 Opyrchal (121104) 2 004 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The potential difference between a pair of oppositely charged parallel plates is 399 V....
