Homework # 2 Solutions Ex.1 We have 4 . 8 × 10 - 6 C 1 . 6 × 10 - 19 C = 3 × 10 13 electrons Ex.4 Let F k q 1 q 2 r 2 = 8 N Then, under r ( r/ 2), a straightforward calculation reveals F = k q 1 q 2 r 2 k q 1 q 2 ( r/ 2) 2 = 4 F = 32 N Ex.6(a) We have F = k q 1 q 2 r 2 = (9 . 0 × 10 9 N · m 2 · C - 2 ) · (4 × 10 - 6 C) · (4 × 10 - 6 C) (0 . 1 m) 2 = 144 × 10 9 - 6 - 6+2 N = 14 . 4 N Ex.6(b) ← ⊕ ⊕ → . Ex.7(a) The magnitude of the force is given by F = k q 1 q 2 r 2 = (9 . 0 × 10 9 ) · (2 × 10 - 6 ) · (4 × 10 - 6 ) (2 . 0 × 10 - 1 ) 2 (in SI units) = 18 × 10 9 - 6 - 6+2 = 1 . 8 N Ex.7(b) ⊕ → ← ⊖ . Ex.8 Let ˆ r be a unit vector pointing from the electron away from the di- rection of the proton. Then, if we perform our calculation in SI units (forces 1

in Newtons, distances in Metres, electric charges in Coulombs, etc.), and end up with a positive expression (in ˆ r ), we’ll know we have a repulsive force, but if we end up with a negative expression (in ˆ r ), we’ll know we have an attractive force. Also, in standardized units, negative charges carry negative charge, and positive charges carry positive charge, and so F = k q 1 q 2 r 2 ˆ r = (9 . 0 × 10 9 ) · (1 . 6 × 10
