Harvard University Department of Physics Spring Semester 2009 Physics 15b Electricity & Magnetism Problem Set #1 Due Friday, February 13, 2009 at 4pm 1. (a) The distance between two protons in a helium nucleus is 10 - 13 cm. Compare the gravitational attraction of these 2 protons to their electrostatic repulsion. (b) What holds the protons together? How strong must this force be? 2. A thin rod 10 cm long carries a total charge of 8 esu uniformly distributed along its length. Find the strength of the electric field at each of the two points A and B located as shown in the diagram below. 10 cm A 3 cm B 5 cm 3.(a) The sphere of radiusawas filled with positive charge at uniform densityρ.Then asmaller sphere of radiusa/2 was carved out, as shown in the figure, and left empty.What are the direction and magnitude of the electric field atA? (b) At B ? A B a r

    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.
