The College Board is a notforprofit membership association whose mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity. Founded in 1900, the association is composed of more than 5,400 schools, colleges, universities, and other educational organizations. Each year, the College Board serves seven million students and their parents, 23,000 high schools, and 3,500 colleges through major programs and services in college admissions, guidance, assessment, financial aid, enrollment, and teaching and learning. Among its bestknown programs are the SAT®, the PSAT/NMSQT®, and the Advanced Placement Program® (AP®). The College Board is committed to the principles of excellence and equity, and that commitment is embodied in all of its programs, services, activities, and concerns. © 2008 The College Board.

General Notes About 2008 AP Physics Scoring Guidelines
1. The solutions contain the most common method of solving the freeresponse questions and the allocation of points for this solution. Some also contain a common alternate solution. Other methods of solution also receive appropriate credit for correct work. 2. Generally, double penalty for errors is avoided. For example, if an incorrect answer to part (a) is correctly substituted into an otherwise correct solution to part (b), full credit will usually be awarded. One exception to this may be cases when the numerical answer to a later part should be easily recognized as wrong, e.g., a speed faster than the speed of light in vacuum. 3. Implicit statements of concepts normally receive credit. For example, if use of the equation expressing a particular concept is worth one point, and a student’s solution contains the application of that equation to the problem but the student does not write the basic equation, the point is still awarded. However, when students are asked to derive an expression it is normally expected that they will begin by writing one or more fundamental equations, such as those given on the AP Physics exam equation sheet. For a description of the use of such terms as “derive” and “calculate” on the exams, and what is expected for each, see “The FreeResponse Sections⎯Student Presentation” in the AP Physics Course Description. 4. The scoring guidelines typically show numerical results using the value g = 9.8 m s2 , but use of 10 m s 2 is of course also acceptable. Solutions usually show numerical answers using both values when they are significantly different.
5. Strict rules regarding significant digits are usually not applied to numerical answers. However, in some cases answers containing too many digits may be penalized. In general, two to four significant digits are acceptable. Numerical answers that differ from the published answer due to differences in rounding throughout the question typically receive full credit. Exceptions to these guidelines usually occur when rounding makes a difference in obtaining a reasonable answer. For example, suppose a solution requires subtracting two numbers that should have five significant figures and that differ starting with the fourth digit (e.g., 20.295 and 20.278). Rounding to three digits will lose the accuracy required to determine the difference in the numbers, and some credit may be lost. © 2008 The College Board. All rights reserved.

Question 1
15 points total Distribution of points (a) (i) 2 points For indicating that the charge on the inner surface of the shell is Q For a correct explanation with no incorrect statements Examples: • Applying Gauss’s law to a Gaussian surface within the shell gives Qenclosed = 0 , since the field within a conductor is zero. Therefore the charge on the inner surface of the shell is Q . • The +Q on the sphere attracts an equal and opposite charge onto the inner surface of the shell. (Equal magnitude could be implied by a statement that earned the first point.) (ii) 2 points 1 point 1 point 1 point 1 point For indicating that the charge on the inner surface of the shell is +Q For a correct explanation with no incorrect statements Examples: • Applying Gauss’s law to a Gaussian surface outside the shell gives Qenclosed = +Q , therefore the sum of the charges on the inner and outer surfaces of the shell must be 0. • The net charge on the shell is zero. Therefore the charge on the outer surface must be the opposite of the charge on the inner surface because of conservation of charge. Note: If the correct sign of the charge is given in part i or ii without the magnitude (Q), a correct explanation could receive 1 point. (b) (i) 1 point Since the sphere is a conductor all the charge lies on the outside surface. Applying Gauss’s law to any Gaussian surface inside the sphere gives Qenclosed = 0 . For a correct answer E=0 (ii) 1 point 1 point For any surface between the sphere and the shell the net enclosed charge is +Q . Applying Gauss’s law E 4 pr 2 = Q 0 For a correct answer

Question 1 (continued)
Distribution of points (d) 3 points Note: The intent of the problem was to ask for the speed at a distance of 10c instead of the stated 10r. Very few students did anything other than treat 10r as if it were outside the shell. For a correct statement of conservation of energy For example, K + U = 0 For correct substitution of all variables into a correct relationship (including integration limits of • and 10r if integration is used) Q (  e) 1 =0 For example, meu 2 + 2 4 p 0 (10r ) For a correct solution for the speed Qe 1 meu 2 = 2 4 p 0 (10r ) 1 point 1 point 1 point u2 = 2Qe Qe 1 = 4 p 0 5mer 4 p 0 me (10r ) Qe 1 or equivalent 4 p 0 5mer Note: If a student noted that 10r did not define a definite radius, points were awarded as appropriate for attempting a calculation in any region or several regions, or for a clear indication that the solution is regiondependent. u= © 2008 The College Board.

Question 2 (continued)
Distribution of points (b) 6 points Resistor graph: The current is constant with the resistor placed between points A and B. The resistance of that branch is more than when the capacitor and inductor are placed there, so the current will be less. For drawing a horizontal line, indicating a constant current For having the value of the resistor graph less than the initial value of the capacitor graph or the steady state value of the inductor graph Inductor graph: The inductor initially opposes the flow of current, so the initial current in that branch is zero. Eventually, the inductor acts like a wire and does not impede the flow of charge, as the rate of change of current decreases to zero. For starting the graph at I 3 = 0 at time t = 0 For a graph that is concave down and asymptotic to the initial current in the capacitor case Capacitor graph: Initially, the capacitor is uncharged and current is a maximum in the branch containing R3 . As the capacitor charges the current in that branch decreases to zero.
