    Constructive/Destructive Interference

    Homework Statement A person driving at v = 15 m/s crosses the line connecting two radio transmitters at right angles, as shown in the figure (d1 = 300 m and d2 = 100 m). The transmitters emit identical signals in phase with each other, which the driver receives on the car radio. When the car...

    Magnitude & Direction of Magnetic Field

    Homework Statement An electron moving with a speed of 9.0 multiplied by 105 m/s in the positive y direction experiences zero magnetic force. When it moves in the positive z direction it experiences a force of 1.7 multiplied by 10-13 N that points in the negative x direction. What is the...

    Electric Circuits, Kirchhoff's Rules

    The question: Suppose point A is grounded (V = 0) in Figure 21-36, in which script e = 16 V and R = 11 . Find the potential at points B and C. Here is the diagram: I'm pretty sure that I have to use Kirchhoff's rules in order to solve this problem...

    Electrical Energy Storage, Capactor, Battery, Motor

    Here is my problem [the last one of a lot that I already got all right and have to turn in by midnight - so you can sense my frustration, lol.] A .39microF capacitor is charged by a 1.5 V battery. After being charged, the capacitor is connected to a small electric motor. a) Assuming 100%...
