Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The quantity of charge passing through a sur face of area 3 cm 2 varies with time as q = q 1 t 3 + q 2 t + q 3 , where q 1 = 1 . 8 C / s 3 , q 2 = 3 . 2 C / s, q 3 = 3 . 8 C, and t is in seconds. What is the instantaneous current through the surface at t = 0 . 5 s? Correct answer: 4 . 55 A. Explanation: Let : q 1 = 1 . 8 C / s 3 , q 2 = 3 . 2 C / s , q 3 = 3 . 8 C , and t = 0 . 5 s . I ≡ d q dt = 3 q 1 t 2 + q 2 = 3 ( 1 . 8 C / s 3 ) (0 . 5 s) 2 + 3 . 2 C / s = 4 . 55 A . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What is the value of the current density at t = 0 . 5 s? Correct answer: 15166 . 7 A / m 2 . Explanation: Let : a = 3 cm 2 = 0 . 0003 m 2 and t = 0 . 5 s . J ≡ I A = 4 . 55 A . 0003 m 2 = 15166 . 7 A / m 2 . 003 10.0 points A conductor with crosssectional area 2 cm 2 carries a current of 17 A. If the concentration of free electrons in the conductor is 5 × 10 28 electrons / m 3 , what is the drift velocity of the electrons? Correct answer: 0 . 0106106 mm / s. Explanation: Let : I = 17 A , n = 5 × 10 28 electrons / m 3 , q e = 1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C , and A = 2 cm 2 = 0 . 0002 m 2 . The current in a conductor is given by I = n q v d A , where n is the number of charge carriers per unit volume, q is the charge per carrier, v d is the drift velocity of the carriers and A is the cross section of the conduction. Solving for v d , we have v d = I n q A = 17 A 5 × 10 28 electrons / m 3 × 1 1 . 60218 × 10 − 19 C × 1 . 0002 m 2 × 1000 mm 1 m = . 0106106 mm / s . 004 10.0 points The drift velocity of free electrons in a cop per wire is 7 mm / s, resistivity is 1 . 78 × 10 − 8 Ω · m, and the free electron density is 8 . 45 × 10 28 electrons / m 3 ....
