Unformatted text preview: PHY2054 Spring 2008 15. The potential difference between a pair of oppositely charged parallel plates is 450V when the plate separation is 1 pm. If the spacing between the plates is tripled without altering the charge on the plates, what is the new potential difference (in volts) between the plates? @ 1350 ( 150 (3) so (4) 450 (S) 4050 Since the charge is unchanged, the E field is unchanged. Using V = Ed, the voltage is tripled to I 35 0 V. 16. Refer to the previous problem. If the plate separation is doubled to 2 pm while the potential difference between the plates is kept constant, what is the ratio of the final charge on one of the pgtes to the original charge? @1/2 1/4 (3)2 (4)4 (5) 3 If the plate separation is doubled, the capacitance is halved. Thus if the voltage is unchanged, then by Q = CV the charge on the plates is halved. 17. Refer to the previous problem with the capacitor having its original plate separation otlfln. After being charged to a potential 0&0], the capacitor is disgopngcted from the circuit and has a slabof dielectric (x = 2.7) carefully inserted between the plates without touching them. The new pom @None of these (2) 320 (3) 120 (4)0 (5) 60 The charge is unchanged. Placing a dielectric inside has the eflect of reducing the voltage by K‘. Thus the new voltage is 120 /2. 7 = 44.4 V. l.‘ ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
