The charge per unit volume is ρ. (a) Find the electric field E everywhere as a function of the distance r from the axis of the cylinder. (b) Find the electric potential V everywhere as a function of r . Define V = 0 at the surface of the cylinder. (c) Sketch E and V as function of r , from r = 0 to r = 3R, showing the values of each at r = 0, R, and 3R. 2. Two small spheres of mass m are suspended from a common point by threads of length L. When each sphere carries a charge q , each thread makes an angle θ with the vertical as shown in the figure. Find an expression for the charge q at equilibrium in terms of L, m, g, θ and the Coulomb constant k . θ L θ L m q m q 3. A proton traveling with a velocity of v = 1 × 104 m/s ˆ + 2 × 104 m/s ˆ is i j located at x = 3m, y = 4m at some time t. Find the magnetic field at time t at the following positions: (a) x = 2m,y = 2m (a) x = 6m,y = 4m (a) x = 3m,y = 6m ...
