Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The potential difference in a simple circuit is 16 V and the resistance is 41 Ω. What current I flows in the circuit? Correct answer: 0 . 390244 A. Explanation: Let : V = 16 V and R = 41 Ω . The current is I = V R = 16 V 41 Ω = . 390244 A . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points How many electrons pass a given point in the circuit in 6 min? Correct answer: 8 . 78049 × 10 20 . Explanation: Let : I = 0 . 390244 A , t = 6 min = 360 s , and q e = 1 . 6 × 10 19 C . I = q t , where q is in coulombs and t in seconds; that is, q = I t, and the total charge for n electrons is q = n q e , so n = q q e = I t q e = (0 . 390244 A) (360 s) 1 . 6 × 10 19 C = 8 . 78049 × 10 20 . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Consider two conductors 1 and 2 made of the same ohmic material; i.e. , ρ 1 = ρ 2 . Denote the length by , the cross sectional area by A . The same voltage V is applied across the ends of both conductors. The field E is inside of the conductor.
