Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points An electric field of magnitude 25000 N / C and directed upward perpendicular to the Earth’s surface exists on a day when a thunderstorm is brewing. A truck that can be approximated as a rectangle 3 . 5 m by 2 . 5 m is traveling along a road that is inclined 6 ◦ relative to the ground. Determine the electric flux through the bot tom of the truck. Correct answer: 2 . 17552 × 10 5 N · m 2 / C. Explanation: Let : E = 25000 N / C , ℓ = 3 . 5 m , w = 2 . 5 m , and θ = 6 ◦ . By Gauss’ law, Φ = vector E · vector A The flux through the bottom of the car is Φ = E A cos θ = E ℓ w cos θ = (25000 N / C) (3 . 5 m) × (2 . 5 m) cos(6 ◦ ) = 2 . 17552 × 10 5 N · m 2 / C . 002 10.0 points A nonconducting wall carries a uniform charge density of 12 . 82 μ C / cm 2 . What is the electric field 11 cm in front of the wall? Correct answer: 7 . 23951 × 10 9 N / C. Explanation: Let : σ = 12 . 82 μ C / cm 2 and r = 11 cm . The electric field of an infinite plane of surface charge density σ is E = σ 2 ǫ = 12 . 82 μ C / cm 2 2 (8 . 85419 × 10 − 12 C 2 / N · m 2 ) × parenleftbigg 1 C 10 6 μ C parenrightbigg · parenleftbigg 100 cm 1 m parenrightbigg 2 = 7 . 23951 × 10 9 N / C . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A thin spherical shell of radius 4 . 95 m has a total charge of 4 . 84 C distributed uniformly over its surface. Let : k e = 8 . 988 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 . 4 . 9 5 m vector E + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + Find the electric field vector E 11 m from the center of the shell (outside the shell). Correct answer: 3 . 5952 × 10 8 N / C. Explanation: Let : a = 4 . 95 m , Q = 4 . 84 C , and r = 11 m . If we construct a spherical Gaussian surface of radius r > a , concentric with the shell, then the charge inside this surface is Q . Therefore the field at a point outside the shell is equiva lent to that of a point charge Q at the center....
