This is like related to a homework problem, but I'm just curious: If we have two capacitors and two resistors in series, the overall capacitance and resistance does not change regardless of the order, right? Likewise, if they were in parallel (like a resistor + capacitor...
I was just wondering, so lets say there are two current carrying wires in the same plane that are perpendicular. One of them is infinite length, the other is a wire segment some distance away from the first one and perpendicular to it. What's the force on the wire...
Determine the equivalent capacitance of the combination
shown in Figure P26.75. Suggestion: Consider the symmetry
Parallel is: C1+C2+C3+...
Series is: (C1^-1 + C2^-1 + C3^-1 + ...)^-1
q = CV
The Attempt at a Solution
I have no...
You are inside a large, hollow conductor that is isolated from the ground. There is a large charge on the conductor. If you touch the inside of it, will you be harmed? What if you had a charge with opposite sign of that on the conductor?
