Solutions to Period 10 Exercises E.1 Suppose that the Styrofoam ring you levitated in class has a mass of 0.005 grams and floated 5 cm above the rod. How large was the electrical force that supported the ring? ( Hint: what forces act on the floating ring? How do the amounts of these forces compare?) a) 4.9 x 10 -2 newtons b) 5.0 x 10 -3 newtons c) 4.9 x 10 -5 newtons d) 2.5 x 10 -6 newtons e) 2.5 x 10 -7 newtons F electrical = F gravity = M g = 0.005 g x 1 kg x 9.8 m/s 2 = 0.000049 N 1000 g = 4.9 x 10 -5 N E.1 = c 10- Ex 1
