Since both equations have FT, we can isolate this variable and then equate the two equations. Additionally, we will introduce the equation for Coulomb’s Law for the variable FE and the regular mg term for Fg.

All of the charges are positive, so they repel each other. Each charge is repelled by two other charges. If we remove one charge, then the amount of repulsion will decrease, so the force on each charge will also decrease. Again choose our x and y-axes: the x-axis is along the horizontal and positive to the right and y-axis is along the vertical and positive in the upward direction. Now we will create a FBD for one of the charges: The net force F0 on a single charge would be equal to the vector sum of two equal forces (each is FE) separated by an angle of 60°. To get the net force, which is the original force on each charge F0 determine the net force in each of the axis directions and then find the net total force: Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions 5 ©Prep101 Phys1026 April Exam Solutions Fx = − FE − FE cos 60° Fy = − FE sin 60° Fx = −1.5FE Fy = −0.866 FE Fnet = F0 = Fx2 + Fy2 F0 = (− 1.5FE )2 + (− 0.866 FE )2 F0 = 1.73FE Once one of the charges is removed, the force decreases from 1.73 FE to FE. The new force is less than the original force by a factor of 1/1.73. The new force on each charge is FE = 0.58 F0. 2.3 Answer (B) The flight time through the plates in the x-direction is given by v = L / t ⇔ t = L /v and we have F = qE = may ⇔ ay = qE / m. If we set the initial position of the droplet in the y-direction to zero then the maximal allowed displacement is d/2. We also have that the initial velocity in the y-direction is zero. Thus we have: sy(t) = 0.5⋅ ay⋅ t2 ⇔ ⇔ d/2 = 0.5⋅ q⋅ E⋅ L2 / (m⋅v2) q = m⋅ v2⋅ d / (E⋅ L2) 2.4 Solution: (a) Use Coulomb’s Law to find the force of the charge at B on the charge at A: r kq q k (+Q)(−Q) kQ 2 kQ 2 ˆ FBonA = a2 b = = 2 [RIGHT] → FBonA = 2 x rab (d ) 2 d d r kq q k (+Q)(−Q ) kQ 2 kQ 2 ˆ FConA = a2 c = = 2 [UP] → FConA = 2 y rac (d ) 2 d d The net force on the charge at A is the vector sum of these two component forces: r ⎛ kQ 2 ⎞ ⎛ kQ 2 ⎞ ⎛ kQ 2 kQ 2 ⎞ Fnet = ⎜ 2 ,0 ⎟ + ⎜ 0, 2 ⎟ = ⎜ 2 , 2 ⎟ ⎟ ⎜ d ⎟ ⎜d ⎜d Fnet d⎟ FConA ⎠ ⎠⎝ ⎠⎝ ⎝ Fnet ⎛ kQ...
