Received some help from a classmate...apparently when they wrote the online question, they messed around with the units...A LOT. Thanks for all the help, though!
I hadn't tried using 5^3 - 4^3, but when I did, I still didn't get the correct answer. The equation of E = rho * volume with charge was given to me by my professor.
The interactive help that comes with the problem stated that I had to calculate the surface charge in order to calculate the linear charge. Also, do I have the right formula for E? And if I don't need the surface charge, from where do I get the linear charge?
1. Homework Statement
An infinite sheet of charge, oriented perpendicular to the x-axis, passes through x = 0. It has area density = -3 micro C/m^2. A thick, infinite conducting slab, also oriented perpendicular to the x-axis, occupies the region between x=a and x=b where a = 4 cm and b=5...
I'll try attaching the image, but as for the symbols, I don't have anything that will display them. My computer is a little too old to have packages like Microsoft Equation or anything like that. If it's really a problem, I'll try seeing if I can download something. Also, I'm really not sure...
1. Homework Statement
Two coaxial cylindrical conductors are shown. The inner cylinder has radius a = 2 cm, length 10 m, and carries a total charge of Q inner = +8nC. The outer cylinder has an inner radius b = 6 cm, outer radius c= 7 cm, length 10 m, and carries a total charge of Q outer =...
1. Homework Statement
An insulator in the shape of a spherical shell is shown. The insulator is defined by an inner radius a = 4 cm and an outer radius b = 6 cm and carries a total charge of Q = +9 microC. You may assume that the charge is distributed uniformly throughout the volume of the...
Okay, I think I figured out what the pressure amplitude is...but what about the displacement amplitude? Again, I have no means (as far as I can see) of calculating omega or frequency or other factors needed to solve for the amplitude....
Please help! :)
1. Homework Statement
A jackhammer emits sound at a decibel level of 130 dB. The wavelength of the sound is 1.0 m. What is the linear sound intensity? What is the pressure amplitude? What is the displacement amplitude?
2. Homework Equations
Beta = 10 log (I / Io)
...and...
I will definitely try the force approach. I can't believe I didn't think of it. I guess I just panicked when I saw the problem. Thanks for all of the input!
