1 Midterm #2 Physics 9HD, Fall 2009 Nov. 23, 2009 NAME_______________________________________________________________________ You are permitted to use one 8 /1/2” x 11” sheet of paper with formulas, and your calculator. MAXIMUM SCORE IS 100 POINTS. THE EXAM HAS 4 PROBLEMS ON 2 PAGES. SHOW ALL YOUR WORK. Please hand in your copy of the test with your work, so that I can see any additions which you have made to the diagrams (e.g., assignment of currents, nodes, and loops for Problem 4.) ______________________________________________________________________________ 1. (10 points) (a) Suppose you are given a black box, which you are told contains a circuit with only batteries and resistors. You can make electrical connections to two electrical terminals on the box, which are connected to the circuit. Using the two terminals, explain what measurements you would make in order to determine the Thévenin equivalent voltage, E eq , and Thévenin equivalent resistance, R eq , of the components in the box. (b) Now connect a resistor R across the two terminals of the black box. What is the power dissipated in R? 2. (50 points) (a) An infinitely long straight wire of negligible cross-sectional area is at rest on the x-axis and has a uniform linear charge density λ o (in esu/cm) in the inertial frame F’. The frame F’ (and the wire) move

    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.
