Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 0.0points Throughout a particular region of space, the electric potential can be expressed as V = (4) xz + (2) y + ( 3) z , what is the magnitude of the electric field at point p = (8 , 8 , 1) m. Correct answer: 29 . 3428 N / C. Explanation: Recalling that vector E = −∇ V , we calculate vector E , vector E = parenleftBig (4) z ˆ x + (2)ˆ y + bracketleftBig (4) x + ( 3) bracketrightBig ˆ z parenrightBig . The magnitude of vector E at p is | vector E | = radicalBig (4) 2 z 2 + (2) 2 + [(4) x + ( 3)] 2 = radicalBig (4) 2 · (1) 2 + (2) 2 + [(4) · (8) + ( 3)] 2 = 29 . 3428 N / C . 002 0.0points The figure shows three very large metal disks carrying the indicated charges. On each surface, the charges are distributed uniformly. Each disk has a very large radius R and small thickness t . The distances between disks are a and b , both much smaller than R .

Applying Gauss’ law to either of the plates in the upper region, we find that vector E in the upper region is vector E = Q 1 ǫ 0 πR 2 ( ˆ y ) . Likewise, in the region between the lower two plates, vector E = Q 1 ǫ 0 πR 2 (+ˆ y ) . Inside the conductors E = 0, so the inte- gration along the path inside the conductors makes no contribution. Since E is uniform between the plates, we may calculate Δ V us- ing the scalar product Δ V = vector E vector l , in this case summed over two regions. Δ V = parenleftbigg 1 ǫ 0 πR 2 parenrightbigg parenleftBig [ Q 1 ( ˆ y ) a ( ˆ y )] + [ Q 2 (+ˆ y ) b ( ˆ y )] parenrightBig = 1 ǫ 0 πR 2 ( Q 1 a Q 2 b ) = 1 ǫ 0 πR 2 ( Q 2 b Q 1 a ) 003 0.0points

pan (zp695) – midterm 02 review – chiu – (56565) 2 A small metal sphere of radius r = 4 mm has an initial charge q 0 = 6 . 1 μ C. A very long ideal copper wire is attached to this sphere and connected to a very distant, large, un- charged metal sphere of radius 63 cm. Cal- culate the final charge Q on the large sphere, neglecting the small amount of charge on the wire. Correct answer: 6 . 06151 μ C. Explanation: The key point is to realize that once the spheres are connected by the wire, their sur- faces must be at the same potential. Since we are told the large sphere is “very distant,” we make the approximation that the spheres are far enough apart that we may neglect the ef- fect of one sphere on the potential of the other — this allows us to simply calculate the po- tential of each sphere relative to the point at infinity. Letting q be the charge on the small sphere after connection, we solve V ( r ) q r = Q R V ( R ) for Q.

### 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.
