Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points In a particular television picture tube, the measured beam current is 94 . 9 A. How many electrons strike the tube screen every 26 s? Correct answer: 1 . 5402 10 16 electrons. Explanation: Let : I = 94 . 9 A = 9 . 49 10 5 C / s and t = 26 s . The current is I = q t = n q e t . Thus n = I t q e = (9 . 49 10 5 C / s) (26 s) 1 . 602 10 19 C / electron = 1 . 5402 10 16 electrons . 002 10.0 points A wire is made of a material with a resistiv- ity of 1 . 63303 10 8 m. It has length 6 . 72317 m and diameter 0 . 79857 mm. What is the resistance of the wire? Correct answer: 0 . 219206 . Explanation: Let : = 1 . 63303 10 8 m , = 6 . 72317 m , and r = 0 . 399285 mm = 0 . 000399285 m . By definition, the resistance of the wire is R = A = r 2 = ( 1 . 63303 10 8 m ) (6 . 72317 m) (0 . 000399285 m) 2 = . 219206 . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The potential difference in a simple circuit is 15 V and the resistance is 20 ....
