Conductors A metal ball hangs from the ceiling by an insulating thread. The ball is attracted to a positive-charged rod held near the ball. The charge of the ball must be: 1) positive 2) negative 3) neutral 4) positive or neutral 5) negative or neutral
Proton vs. Electron A proton and an electron are held apart a distance of 1.0 m and then released. Which particle has the larger acceleration at any one moment? p e 1) proton 2) electron 3) both the same 4) not enough information

Charges in a plane Determine the magnitude and direction of the net electrostatic force on q 1 . Step 1. Determine individual forces on q 1 and draw free body diagram (Note the coordinate system) q 2 attracts q 1 - F 12 q 3 attracts q 1 - F 13 Force F 12 has x and y components!
Charges in a plane F 12 = k | q 1 || q 2 | r 12 2 = (8.99 E 9 Nm 2 / C 2 ) (4.0 E 6 C )(6.0 E 6 C ) (0.15 m ) 2 = 9.6 N F 13 = k | q 1 || q 3 | r 13 2 = (8.99 E 9 Nm 2 / C 2 ) (4.0 E 6 C )(5.0 E 6 C ) (0.1 m ) 2 = 18 N Step 2. Determine magnitude of individual forces on q 1 F 12 = (9.6 N )cos(73 ° ) ˆ i + (9.6 N )sin(73 ° ) ˆ j F 13 = (18 N ) ˆ i + (0 N ) ˆ j F = (21 N ) ˆ i + (9.2 N ) ˆ j Step 3.

### What students are saying

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
