Jim Guinn’s PHYS2212 Assignment #4 Solutions 1. Consider a uniform electric field, = (2.00kN/C) . a) What is the flux of this field through a square of side 10.0cm in plane parallel to the y- z plane? Since the electric field is uniform over the area of the square, the flux is given by Φ = · = E A = (2.00x10 3 N/C) (10.0x10 -2 m) 2 = Φ = 20.0N m 2 /C b) What is the flux through the same square if the normal to its plane makes a 30.0 o angle with the x-axis? In this case Φ = · = E A cos30.0 o = (2.00x10 3 N/C) (10.0x10 -2 m) 2 cos30.0 o = Φ = 17.3N m 2 /C . 2. An electric field is = (200.N/C) for x > 0 and = (-200.N/C) for x < 0 . A cylinder of length 20.0cm and radius 5.00cm has its center at the origin and its axis along the x-axis such that one end is at x = 10.0cm and the other is at x = -10.0cm. a) What is the flux through each end? Each end of the cylinder has its outward normal pointing along the field direction; hence, Φ = E A = E ( π r 2 ) = (200.N/C) π (0.0500m) 2 = Φ = 1.57N m 2 /C . b) What is the flux through the curved surface of the cylinder? The outward normal to the curved surface is always perpendicular to the electric field, so

### What students are saying

• 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.
