Physics 2102, January 19, 2011. Activity 1: Consider the two charges shown in the drawing. Which of the following statements correctly describes the direction of the electric force acting on the two charges? Circle the correct answer under (i) and (ii). (i) a) The force on q 1 points to the left and the force on q 2 points to the left. b) The force on q 1 points to the right and the force on q 2 points to the left. c) The force on q 1 points to the left and the force on q 2 points to the right. d) The force on q 1 points to the right and the force on q 2 points to the right. (ii) a) The force on q 1 has a magnitude that is twice that of the force on q 2 . b) The force on q 2 has a magnitude that is twice that of the force on

Unformatted text preview: q 1 . c) The force on q 1 has the same magnitude as that of the force on q 2 . d) The force on q 2 has a magnitude that is four times that of the force on q 1 . e) The force on q 1 has a magnitude that is four times that of the force on q 2 . Activity 2: The figure shows three point charges arranged in different ways. The charges all have the same magnitudes, but different signs as shown in the figure. Rank the arrangements according to the magnitude of the total electrostatic force on the electron , due to the protons. Circle the correct answer. F a > F b > F c F a > F c > F b F b > F a > F c F b > F c > F a F c > F a > F b...
