ECE320 Homework 3 Spring 2006 Cornell University T.L.Fine Please hand in this assignment at the end of lecture on Tuesday, 21 February. Use only your assigned three-digit code and not your name. The first examination will be held on Tuesday, 21 February, from 7:30pm to 9pm in Malott 251 and 253. It will have three questions that are drawn from material in Chapters 2 and 3 and Sections 4.1 through 4.4. There will be a class at the regular time of 10:10am in PH101 on that Tuesday so that Prof. Fine can respond to questions about this material from those who attend. No new material will be covered that day. 1. The average current emitted by a cathode is I amps (coulombs/sec.). The charge emitted over time T seconds is Q coulombs, where a coulomb is approximately (but assume it to be exactly) 6 × 10 18 electrons. (a) If I is one nanoampere and T is one nanosecond then what is the average number of electrons emitted in this time? (b) What is the probability that no electrons will be seen in this time?

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.
