Unformatted text preview: HW 3 Phys5406 S08 due 2/7/07 1)A uncharged, conducting sphere of mass M and radius R oats with 1/4 of its volume submerged in a dielectric liquid of permitivity . When a total free charge Q is put on the sphere it oats with 1/2 its volume submerged. Calculate, the Q = f (; R; M ) needed. 2) Suppose an in nitely long conducting cylinder of radius R is cut through a diameter into two half cylinders. They are then glued together and a charge/length  is placed on the cylinder. How much force/length must the glue withstand to keep the half cylinders from pulling apart. 3) Suppose a long solenoid of n turns/length, radius R and current I. Consider a screw driver (approximated as a cylinder with radius a such that a << R) of permeability  partially inside the solenoid and partially outside at one end. The axis of the cylinder is parallel to that of the solenoid. What is the approximate force/area exerted on the screw driver? Is the latter pulled in or expelled? 1 ...
