which are worth 15 points each. The parts within a question may not have equal weight. Show all your work in the

3 Questions
Directions: Answer all three questions. The suggested time is about 15 minutes for answering each of the questions, which are worth 15 points each. The parts within a question may not have equal weight. Show all your work in the
pink booklet in the spaces provided after each part, NOT in this green insert. E & M 1. A very long nonconducting rod of radius a has positive charge distributed throughout its volume. The
charge distribution is cyclindrically symmetric, and the total charge per unit length of the rod is 7L .

The capacitance is
measured to be 0.05 microfarad (5 x 10—8 F) . (a) What is the dielectric constant of the plastic? (b) The uncharged capacitor is connected in series with a resistor R = 2 x 10'3 ohms, a 30volt
battery, and an open switch S . as shown ab0ve. The switch is then closed. i. What is the initial charging current when the switch S is closed?

charged capacitor. iv. How much electrical energy is stored in the fully charged capacitor? After the capacitor is fully charged, it is carefully disconnected, leaving the charged capacitor isolated in space. The plastic sheet is then removed from between the metal plates. The metal plates retain their
original separation of 1.0 millimeter. (c) What is the new voltage across the plates? (d) If there is now more energy stored in the capacitor, where did it come from? If there is now less
energy, what happened to it? GO ON TO THE NEXT PAGE E&M3. 1995 PHYSICS C — E 8! M I I I O O O O O O O O O B(out of page)  o  Glider The long, narrow rectangular loop of wire shown above has vertical height H, length D, and
