HPHY 253 Homework 23a Electric Fields: Distributions of Point Charges Dr. A. E. Bak Name 1. Serway & Jewett Problem 23 : 3 . Nobel laureate Richard Feynman (1918-1988) once said that if two persons stood at arm°s length from each other and each person had 1% more electrons than protons, then the force of repulsion between them would be enough to lift a ±weight°equal to that of the entire Earth. Carry out an order-of-magnitude calculation to substantiate this assertion. 2. Serway & Jewett Question 23 : 7 . A charged particle is at the origin of coordinates. The particle produces an electric ²eld of 4 e x kN= C at the point with position vector 36 e x cm . i. At which position does the ²eld have the value 1 e x kN= C ? ( a ) 9 e x cm ; ( b ) 18 e x cm ; ( c ) 72 e x cm ; ( d ) 144 e x cm ; ( e ) nowhere : Choose from these possibilities. ii. At which position does the ²eld have the value 16 e x kN= C ? Choose from the possibilities presented in part i . 3. Serway & Jewett Problem 23 : 12 . In Figure P 23 : 12 , determine the point (other than in²nity) at which the electric ²eld is zero.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
