homework 05 – LIN, KEVIN – Due: Feb 17 2008, 4:00 am 1 Question 1, chap 27, sect 3. part 1 of 2 10 points The quantity of charge passing through a surface of area 1 . 84 cm 2 varies with time as q = q 1 t 3 + q 2 t + q 3 , where q 1 = 3 . 9 C / s 3 , q 2 = 4 C / s, q 3 = 8 . 7 C, and t is in seconds. What is the instantaneous current through the surface at t = 1 . 5 s? Correct answer: 30 . 325 A (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Let : q 1 = 3 . 9 C / s 3 , q 2 = 4 C / s , q 3 = 8 . 7 C , and t = 1 . 5 s . I d q dt = 3 q 1 t 2 + q 2 = 3 ( 3 . 9 C / s 3 ) (1 . 5 s) 2 + 4 C / s = 30 . 325 A . Question 2, chap 27, sect 3. part 2 of 2 10 points What is the value of the current density at t = 1 . 5 s? Correct answer: 164810 A / m 2 (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Let : A = 1 . 84 cm 2 = 0 . 000184 m 2 and t = 1 . 5 s . J I A = 30 . 325 A 0 . 000184 m 2 = 164810 A / m 2 . Question 3, chap 27, sect 2. part 1 of 3 10 points Consider two cylindrical conductors made of the same ohmic material. Conductor 1 has a radius r 1 and length 1 while conductor 2 has a radius r 2 and length 2 . Denote: The currents of the two conductors as I 1 and I 2 , the potential di±erences between the two ends of the conductors as V 1 and V 2 , and the electric ²elds within the conductors as E 1 and E 2 . V 1 v E I r 1 b 2 r 2 b If ρ 2 = ρ 1 , r 2 = 2 r 1 , ℓ 2 = 3 1 and V 2 = V 1 , ²nd the ratio R 2 R 1 of the resistances. 1. R 2 R 1 = 1 4 2. R 2 R 1 = 3 2 3. R 2 R 1 = 3 4. R 2 R 1 = 1 2 5.

homework 05 – LIN, KEVIN – Due: Feb 17 2008, 4:00 am 2 Explanation: The relation between resistance and resis- tivity is given by R = ρ ℓ A = ρ ℓ π r 2 . Then since r 2 = 2 r 1 and 2 = 3 1 , the ratio of the resistances is R 2 R 1 = ρ ℓ 2 π r 2 2 π r 2 1 ρ ℓ 1 = 2 r 2 1 1 r 2 2 = (3 1 ) r 2 1 1 (2 r 1 ) 2 = 3 4 . Question 4, chap 27, sect 2. part 2 of 3 10 points When the two conductors are attached to a battery of voltage V, determine the ratio E 2 E 1 of the electric ±elds. 1.
