An electron starts from rest 2.82 cm from the center of a uniformly charged sphere of radius 2.17 cm. If the sphere carries a total charge of 1.11×10-9 C, how fast will the electron be moving when it reaches the surface of the sphere?
This is an exam question that I got wrong and I am trying...
Consider a long horizontal conducting wire with charge density
= 5.70*10^-12 C/m. A proton (mass = 1.67*10^-27 kg) is placed and
released 0.820 m above the wire. What is the magnitude of initial
acceleration of the proton?
My thought is: a=q*E/m
and E is: 2*k*charge density/distance...
If I have a cube made out of capacitors, that's one capacitor for everyside for a total of 12 capacitors. Each capacitor is C=4.71 pF. How would I even begin to go about finding the total capacitance? :yuck:
A charge of 0.883 nC is placed at the origin. Another charge of 0.347 nC is placed at x1 = 13.1 cm on the x-axis.
At which point on the x-axis does this potential have a minimum?
I do know a few things:
A necessary condition for the potential to have a minimum is that its derivative is...
An electron with a kinetic energy 5000.0 eV (1 eV = 1.602×10-19 J) is fired horizontally over a charged plate with surface charge density +2.0 μC m-2. Taking the positive direction to be upwards (away from plate), what is the vertical deflection of the electron after it has traveled a horizontal...
have a box that is 4.15 cm on each side. Using a probe I measure on two opposite sides of the box and find a nearly uniform, inward-oriented, perpendicular component of the field with the magnitude of 18.3 N/C. What is the magnitude of charge inside the box?
I'm having trouble understanding some of these basic electrostatic priciples and my book isn't much help. I've put them in a true/false format. If I could get at few answers, it would really help me understand this.
A positive point charge +q is placed at point p to the right of two...
