    Spherical Shell Insulator

    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!

    Spherical Shell Insulator

    Ok, I'll look more at the book and see what happens!

    Spherical Shell Insulator

    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.

    Coaxial Cylindrical Conductors

    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?

    Infinite Sheets of Charge

    It would help if I attached the picture!!! :rolleyes:

    Infinite Sheets of 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...

    Coaxial Cylindrical Conductors

    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...

    Coaxial Cylindrical Conductors

    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 =...

    Spherical Shell Insulator

    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...

    Decibels, pressure & displacement amplitudes

    I was actually able to finally figure it out. Thanks for the help!

    Decibels, pressure & displacement amplitudes

    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! :)

    Decibels, pressure & displacement amplitudes

    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...

    Pendulum oscillation

    That does look much better. Still can't figure out what I did wrong the first time. Oh well...thanks for the help!

    Simple Harmonic Motion with 2 beads

    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!
