electron? '2. Five equal charges Q are equally spaced on
a semicircle of radius R. Find the force on
a charge q locatedas shown. 3. Three concentric spherical thin conducting shells have radii a < b < 0.
Initially the inner shell is not charged, the middle shell has a positive
charge *t Q and the outer shell has a negative charge —Q. Find the electric
potential of the three shells. 4. Design a network of capacitors that has a capacitance of 2 nF and a
breakdown voltage of 400 V using as many 2 nF capacitors that have
individual breakdown voltages of 100 V as needed. '0 (a F l i'g'fL )\ initially uncharged. a)What is the initial If

c) What are the final charges on the ca pacrtors? I Q _Q_ ll__—.— 50V . A metal bar of mass M, resistance R
and length L rides on a pair of long
frictionless perfectly conducting rails that
are inclined so that they make an angle 8
with the horizontal. The rails are
connected to a battery V.
The bar is released from rest in the
presence of a vertical magnetic ﬁeld B.
Describe the subsequent motion.
Find the final value of the current. 7. A series LRC circuit is driven at a frequency of 500 Hz. An oscilloscope
measurement determines the phase angle between current and voltage to be 75° . IfR=3SQ and L=0.15 H, Find C. 8. An X—ray undergoes scattering by a stationary free electron and emerges
with a wavelength of 0.2 nm at an angle of 100° . What is the kinetic
energy of the scattering electron? 9. What is the radius of 56Fe nucleus? 10. Find the binding energy per nucleon of 7Li . 11. The neutron decays into a proton. Write the equation for this decay.
