    Simple Coulombs Law Problem

    alright got it now, thanks a lot for your help. i was about 80% through typing out my reworking to see if you could check it when i accidentally clicked the back button on my mouse and lost it all, and i really can't put myself through typing it again lol.

    Simple Coulombs Law Problem

    1. Homework Statement Three point charges lie along the x axis. A positive charge q1=16.0mC is at x=2.00m. Another positive charge q2=9.00mC is at the origin. Where should we put a third charge so the resultant force acting on it is zero? What should be the sign of the charge? 2...

    Sliding wire problem

    ok so force pulling the wire down: F=masinθ = -9.8Msinθ so for the rest: F=ILBsinθ 9.8Msinθ=ILBsinθ 9.8M=ILB I=9.8M/LB ??

    Sliding wire problem

    1. Homework Statement A straight piece of conducting wire with mass M and length L is placed on a frictionless incline tilted at an angle theta from the horizontal. There is a uniform, vertical magnetic field vecB at all points (produced by an arrangement of magnets not shown in the...

    Current carrying wire

    ΔB = μo/4π(IΔLsinθ)/R^2 so I = 27 θ = 45 ΔL = 2mm??? and R can be found using trig. so what is μ and o?? soz just really lost. any help would be great.

    Current carrying wire

    1. Homework Statement A wire carrying a 27.0A current bends through a right angle. Consider two 2.00mm segments of wire, each 3.00cm from the bend. Find the magnitude of the magnetic field these two segments produce at point P, which is midway between them. 2. Homework Equations...

    Photon Magnetic field question

    r = mv/qb 0.008276 = (1.67x10^-27 x 1200) / (1.602×10^−19 x b) (1.602×10^−19 x b) = (1.67x10^-27 x 1200) / 0.008276) (1.602×10^−19 x b) = 2.42146x10^-22 b = 1.5115x10^-3

    Photon Magnetic field question

    would i be correct in saying that using the arc length formula: pi/2 radians is equivalent to 1.3cm θ = s / r r = s / θ = 1.3 / pi/2 r = 0.8276 cm t = 0.013m / 1200m/s = 1.083x10^-5 s then w = θ / t = (pi/2) / 1.083x10^-5 = 145041.2121 w = w0 + at 145041.2121 = 0...

    Photon Magnetic field question

    yeh i was about to ask how you knew the radius. ok i'll work on those and get back to you in a few mintues. **digs deep into the memory bank for equations**

    i got 1.129x10^-13 and failed my first attempt.

    Photon Magnetic field question

    ok so: F = qv x B B = F/qv = F / (1.602 × 10^−19) x 1.2 (charge of a proton x velocity of proton) F = ma? = 1.67x10^-27 x a (mass of a proton x acceleration) however, as: m(v/t) / q(v) = m(1/t) / q = (1.67x10^-27 x (1/t)) / 1.602 × 10^−19 (where t = distance / velocity??)
