Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A cylindrical shell of radius 9 . 1 cm and length 277 cm has its charge density uniformly dis- tributed on its surface. The electric field intensity at a point 24 . 6 cm radially outward from its axis (measured from the midpoint of the shell ) is 48100 N / C. Given: k e = 8 . 99 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 . What is the net charge on the shell? Correct answer: 1 . 82293 × 10 − 6 C. Explanation: Let : a = 0 . 091 m , l = 2 . 77 m , E = 48100 N / C , and r = 0 . 246 m .

Correct answer: 0 N / C. Explanation: E = 0 inside the shell. 003 10.0 points The nucleus of “Lead-208”, 208 82 Pb, has 82 pro- tons within a sphere of radius 6 . 34 × 10 − 15 m. Each electric charge has a value of 1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C. The Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 . Calculate the electric field at the surface of the nucleus. Correct answer: 2 . 93756 × 10 21 N / C. Explanation: Let : n = 82 , r = 6 . 34 × 10 − 15 m , and e = 2 . 93756 × 10 21 N / C . Basic Concepts: summationdisplay E A cos θ = Q ǫ Gauss’ Law says that the net electric flux through any closed surface is equal to the net enclosed charge divided by ǫ . Since the electric field strength is constant along the surface of the sphere, and the field lines are perpendicular to the surface of the sphere, the flux is Φ = E · A = E ( 4 π r 2 ) , where r is the radius of the sphere. According to Gauss’ Law, this is Q ǫ = n e ǫ , where n is the number of protons in lead and e is the charge on a proton. Solution: Φ = Q ǫ = n e ǫ = 4 π r 2 E .
