Since the proton strikes the negative plate at the same instant the electron strikes the positive plate, we can use the motion of the electron to determine the time t. Chapter 19 Problems For the electron, 1 2 1051 d = 1 aet 2 , where we have taken into account the fact that the electron is 2 released from rest. Solving this expression for t we have t = d / ae . Substituting this expression into Equation (1), we have d = 2v0 d ap + d ae ae (2) The accelerations can be found by noting that the magnitudes of the forces on the electron and proton are equal, since these particles have the same magnitude of charge. The force on the electron is F = eE = eV / d , and the acceleration of the electron is, therefore, ae = F eV = me me d (3) Newton's second law requires that me ae = mp ap , so that ap ae = me mp (4) Combining Equations (2), (3) and (4) leads to the following expression for v0, the initial speed of the proton: 1 m eV v0 = 1– e 2 mp me SOLUTION Substituting values into the expression above, we find v0 = 1 9.11× 10 –31 kg (1.60 ×10 –19C)(175 V) = 2.77 × 106 m/s 1– –31 2 1.67 ×10 –27 kg 9.11×10 kg 68. REASONING The only force acting on each particle is the conservative electric force. Therefore, the total energy (kinetic energy plus electric potential energy) is conserved as the particles move apart. In addition, the net external force acting on the system of two particles is zero (the electric force that each particle exerts on the other is an internal force). Thus, the total linear momentum of the system is also conserved. We will use the conservation of energy and the conservation of linear momentum to find the initial separation of the particles. 1052 ELECTRIC POTENTIAL ENERGY AND THE ELECTRIC POTENTIAL SOLUTION For two points, A and B, along the motion, the conservation of energy is 1 m v2 + 1 m v2 A 2 1 1,4 2 2 2, 144 2444A 3 Initial kinetic energy of the two particles kq1q2 + rA { = 1 m v2 + 1 m v2 B 2 1 1,4 2 2 2, B 144 2444 3 Final kinetic energy of the two particles Initial electric potential energy + kq1q2 rB { Final electric potential energy Solving this equation for 1/rA and setting v1,A = v2,A = 0 m/s, since the particles are initially at rest, we obtain 1 1 1 = + rA rB kq1q2 2 2 ( 12 m1v1,B + 1 m2v2,B ) 2 (1) This equation cannot be solved for the initial separation rA, because the final speed v2,B of the second particle is not known. To find this speed, we will use the conservation of linear momentum: m1v1, A + m2v2, A = m1v1,B + m2v2, B 144 244 3 144 244 3 Initial linear momentum Final linear momentum Setting v1,A = v2,A = 0 and solving for v2,B gives v2,B = − m1 m2 v1, B = − 3.00 × 10−3 kg 6.00 × 10−3 kg (125 m/s ) = − 62.5 m/s Substituting this value for v2,B into Equation (1) yields 1 1 1 = + rA 0.100 m 8.99 × 109 N ⋅ m 2 / C2 8.00 × 10−6 C ( )( ( ) ) 2 × 1 3.00 × 10−3 kg (125 m/s ) + 2 rA = 1.41 × 10 −2 m 2 1 2 ( 6.00 × 10−3 kg ) ( −62.5 m/s )2 CHAPTER 20 ELECTRIC CIRCUITS ANSWERS TO FOCUS ON CONCEPTS QUESTIONS 1. 1.5 A 2. (c) Ohm’s law states that the voltage V is directly proportional to the current I, according to V = IR, where R is the resistance. Thus, a plot of voltage versus current is a straight line that passes through the origin. 3. (e) Since both wires are made from the same material, the resistivity ρ is the same for each. L The resistance R is given by R = ρ (Equation 20.3), where L is the length and A is the A cross-sectional area of the wire. With twice the length and one-half the radius (one-fourth L 2 the cross-sectional area), the second wire has = = 8 times the resistance as the first A 1/ 4 wire. 4. 250 C° 5. (a) Power P is the current I times the voltage V or P = IV (Equation 20.6a). However, since Ohm’s law applies to a resistance R, the power is also P = I 2 R (Equation 20.6b) and V2 (Equation 20.6c). Therefore, all three of the changes specified leave the power P= R unchanged. 6. 27 W 7. 0.29 A 8. (d) According to Ohm’s law, the voltage across the resistance R1 is V1 = IR1 . The two resistors are connected in series, and their equivalent resistance is, therefore, R1 + R2. V According to Ohm’s law, the current in the circuit is I = . Substituting this R1 + R2 V expression into the expression for V1 gives V1 = R + R R1 . 1 2 1054 ELECTRIC CIRCUITS 9. (b) The series connection has an equivalent resistance of RS = R + R = 2 R . The parallel connection has an equivalent resistance that can be determined from Therefore, it follows that RP = 1 R . The ratio of these values is 2 RS RP = 1 112 =+=. RP R R R 2R = 4. 1R 2 10. (e) Since the two resistors are connected in parallel across the battery terminals, the same voltage is applied to each. Thus, according to Ohm’s law, the current in each resistor is I V / R1 R2 = inversely proportional to the resistance, so that 1 = . I 2 V / R2 R1 11. 0.019 A 12. (c) I...

### 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.

• 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.
