Physics 21, HW 2: due online 1 AM, Friday, January 21, 2011 Chapter 22, Problem 4 Two particles are fixed to an x axis: particle 1 of charge -6.76 x 10 -7 C is at the origin and particle 2 of charge +6.76 x 10 -7 C is at x = 21.8 cm. Midway between the particles, what is the magnitude of the net electric field? Chapter 22, Problem 10 Part (a) of Fig. 22-33 shows two charged particles fixed in place on an x axis with separation L . The ratio q 1 / q 2 of their charge magnitudes is 4.05. Part (b) of the figure shows the x component E net,x of their net electric field along the x axis just to the right of particle 2. The x axis scale is set by x s = 30.3 cm. (a) At what value of x > 0 is E net,x maximum? (b) If particle 2 has charge -5 e , what is the value of that maximum? Assume e = 1.602 × 10 -19 C. Chapter 22, Problem 19 Figure 22-40 shows an electric dipole. What is the magnitude of the dipole's electric field at point P? Assume that q = 1.74 x 10 -6 C, d = 1.88 x 10

Unformatted text preview: -6 m, and r = 3.63 cm. Chapter 22, Problem 26 In Fig. 22-45, a thin glass rod forms a semicircle of radius r = 3.97 cm. Charge is uniformly distributed along the rod, with + q = 5.45 pC in the upper half and -q = -5.45 pC in the lower half. What is the magnitude of the electric field at P , the center of the semicircle? Chapter 22, Problem 37 Suppose you design an apparatus in which a uniformly charged disk of radius R is to produce an electric field. The field magnitude is most important along the central perpendicular axis of the disk, at a point P at distance 3.70 R from the disk (Fig. 22-52 a ). Cost analysis suggests that you switch to a ring of the same outer radius R but with inner radius R /3.70 (Fig. 22-52 b ). Assume that the ring will have the same surface charge density as the original disk. If you switch to the ring, by what part will you decrease the electric field magnitude at P ?...
