Unformatted text preview: PHYS 2212, Test 1, January 29th, 2009 Name (print)_ ___________ k Instructions 0 Read all problems carefully before attempting to solve them. 0 Your work must be legible, and the organization must be clear. 0 You must show all work, including correct vector notation. 0 Correct answers without adequate explanation will be counted wrong. 0 Incorrect work or explanations mixed in with correct work will be counted wrong. Cross out anything
you don’t want us to read! 0 Make explanations correct but brief. You do not need to write a lot of prose. 0 Include diagrams! o Show4what goes into a calculation, not just the ﬁnal number, e.g.: 34’ = W =
5 x 10 ' 0 Give standard SI units with your results. Unless speciﬁcally asked to derive a result, you may start from the formulas given on the
formula sheet, including equations corresponding to the fundamental concepts. If a formula you need is not given, you must derive it. If you cannot do some portion of a problem, invent a symbol for the quantity you can’t
calculate (explain that you are doing this), and use it to do the rest of the problem. Honor Pledge “In accordance with the Georgia Tech Honor Code, I have neither given
nor received unauthorized aid on this test.” Sign your name on the line above Problem 1 (20 Points)
A negative point charge of unknown magnitude is at location A < 0,2,0 > m. At location B < 1,1,0 > m, the magnitude of E—ﬁeld due to this charge is 3.5 N/ C. (a 8pts) Calculate magnitude of the
E—ﬁeld at location C < 0, —1,0 > m.

E=<‘a, a, 0 > Problem 2 (20 Points) You have two strips of invisible tape, each about 15 cm
long, with a mass of about 0.20 g. You smooth them
down onto a table, one on top of the other, as was done in
lecture and lab. You label the top tape “A” and the lower
tape “B” The “sandwich” of two tapes is pulled slowly
off the table. You rub your hand along the slick side of
the upper tape, and observe that the tapes, still stuck
together, do not interact with your hand. Now you quickly pull the tapes apart. You observe that
both tape “A” and tape “B” are attracted to your hand,
and the tapes are attracted to each other. Tape “B” is
repelled by a negatively charged plastic pen. You attach the ends of tape “B” to the tops of two books,
so it hangs loosely, in the position shown by the dotted
line. You hold tape “A” above it, and slowly bring it down
above tape “B”. When tape “A” is 2.3 cm above tape “B”,
you see the middle of tape “B” begin to buckle upwards,
as shown in the diagram. (a 15pts) Calculate approximately the amount of charge

between the two charges is 0.5 centimeters. The E—ﬁeld at location C is indicated on the ﬁgure, directed toward the origin. (a 2pts) Indicate on the sketch which of the charges is positive, by drawing a plus—sign on that charge. (b 6pts) Draw the electric ﬁeld vectors at locations A and B indicated by the crosses. Assume both A and

distance between the two charges. Pay attention to both the size and direction of the vectors you draw. If the E—ﬁeld is zero at either location, write the word zero there. (c 12pts) Suppose we want to place a new charge at location C, so that the total electric ﬁeld at the origin
is zero. If the distance from the origin to location C is 20 centimeters, what value should this charge have? Clearly indicate both the magnitude of the charge (in Coulombs) and the sign (positive or negative). 6: Au i’b dipait at on'JM twink di’ / S‘a chm/ale ai’
