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 27 m length of coaxial cable has a solid cylindrical wire inner conductor with a di- ameter of 3 . 489 mm and carries a charge of 10 . 03 C. The surrounding conductor is a cylindrical shell and has an inner diameter of 7 . 755 mm and a charge of- 10 . 03 C. Assume the region between the conductors is air. The Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 . What is the capacitance of this cable? Correct answer: 1 . 8806 nF. Explanation: Let : k e = 8 . 98755 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 , Q = 10 . 03 C , = 27 m , a = 3 . 489 mm , and b = 7 . 755 mm . The charge per unit length is Q .

Correct answer: 728 V. Explanation: Let : d 2 = 2 d 1 and V 1 = 364 V . The charge remains the same, so Q = C 1 V 1 = C 2 V 2 A d 1 V 1 = A d 2 V 2 V 1 d 1 = V 2 d 2 V 1 d 1 = V 2 2 d 1 V 2 = 2 V 1 = 2(364 V) = 728 V . billing (cab4763) hw 5 opyrchal (121104) 2 004 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points b) If the plate spacing is doubled while the potential difference between the plates is kept constant, what is the ratio of the final charge on one of the plates to the original charge?...
