Force between them is: A) Attractive; force on particle 1 is twice larger than force on particle 2. B) Attractive; force on particle 1 is equal to force on particle 2. C) Zero. D) Repulsive, force on particle 1 is twice smaller than force on particle 2. E) Repulsive; force on particle 1 is equal to force on particle 2. Solution: The force is repulsive and the same because it depends on the product of two charges and the distance between them, Answer E. Problem 2 . (2 points) A negative charge Q= 2 mC is placed inside a spherical conducting shell with the inner radius a and the outer radius b which has an extra charge of 4 mC. Find the charges at the inner and outer surfaces of the shell. Solution. Taking a Gaussian surface inside the conductor Q in +Q=0 therefore Q in =+2mC Charge conservation condition of the conductor tells us that Q in +Q out = Q extra Q out =Q extraQ in =4 mC2 mC = 2 mC Problem 3 . (2 points) Find the electric flux through a cubic Gaussian surface of the side a 1 m surrounding a charge of 3 C....
