Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A 75 m length of coaxial cable has a solid cylindrical wire inner conductor with a di ameter of 2 . 573 mm and carries a charge of 7 . 61 μ C. The surrounding conductor is a cylindrical shell and has an inner diameter of 5 . 379 mm and a charge of 7 . 61 μ 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: 5 . 65808 nF. Explanation: Let : k e = 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 , Q = 7 . 61 μ C , ℓ = 75 m , a = 2 . 573 mm , and b = 5 . 379 mm . The charge per unit length is λ ≡ Q ℓ .

After 1 . 1993 × 10 14 have been transferred, the potential difference between the conductors is 8 . 4 V. The charge on an electron is 1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C . What is the capacitance of the system? Correct answer: 2 . 28749 × 10 − 6 F. Explanation: Let : e = 1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C , N = 1 . 1993 × 10 14 electrons , and V = 8 . 4 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 = (1 . 1993 × 10 14 ) ( 1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C) 8 . 4 V = 2 . 28749 × 10 − 6 F . taherisefat (mt23852) – hw 5 – Opyrchal – (121012) 2 004 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The potential difference between a pair of oppositely charged parallel plates is 359 V....
