68 Electric Potential *P25.57 The plates create uniform electric field to the right in the picture, with magnitude V V d V d 0 0 0 2 − − = b g . Assume the ball swings a small distance x to the right. It moves to a place where the voltage created by the plates is lower by = − Ex V d x 2 0 . Its ground connection maintains it at V = 0 by allowing charge q to flow from ground onto the ball, where + = = 2 0 2 0 0 V x d k q R q V xR k d e e . Then the ball feels electric force F qE V xR k d e = = 4 0 2 2 to the right. For equilibrium this must be balanced by the horizontal component of string tension according to T mg T V xR k d e cos sin θ θ = = 4 0 2 2 tan θ = = 4 0 2 2 V xR k d mg x L e for small x . Then V k d mg RL e 0 2 1 2 4 = F H G I K J . If V 0 is less than this value, the only equilibrium position of the ball is hanging straight down. If V 0 exceeds this value the ball will swing over to one plate or the other. P25.58 (a) Take the origin at the point where we will find the potential. One ring, of width dx , has charge Qdx h and, according to Example 25.5, creates potential

    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.

    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.
