# shell Definition and Topics - 12 Discussions

CONFIG.SYS is the primary configuration file for the DOS and OS/2 operating systems. It is a special ASCII text file that contains user-accessible setup or configuration directives evaluated by the operating system's DOS BIOS (typically residing in IBMBIO.COM or IO.SYS) during boot. CONFIG.SYS was introduced with DOS 2.0.

1. ### Electrostatic Shielding

What is true is that the field due to the point charge outside of the conductor will not be able to penetrate the shell i.e. there will be no field due to the external point charge anywhere within the conductor nor in the cavity: the field will be **killed off*& by the charges on the outer...
2. ### I How to apply the disk/washer and shell methods

In Calculus II, we're learning about solids of revolutions and computing their volumes. I'm unsure when to apply the appropriate methods and how to make the correct partitions. Please tell me if my reasoning is correct: The disk/washer method is applied when your partitions are perpendicular...
3. ### I Are there quark "shells", just as electrons have shells?

Historically, quantum mechanics, or wave mechanics, arose due to the anomaly that accelerating free charges ( electrons ) radiated EM waves. The quantisation theory provided a solution. Quarks also have electric charge, and are moving at relativistic speeds, and bound in the nucleon. As the...
4. ### Implementing a Unix Shell in C

Homework Statement Assignment instructions are as follows: For the purposes of this assignment, we've been provided with some skeleton code (the "myshell.c" program mentioned in the instructions). I'll post it here: #include <stdio.h> #include <sys/wait.h> #include <unistd.h> #include...

### Charged sphere and charged conducting shell

Homework Statement A + q = 5 pC charge is uniformly distributed on a non-conducting sphere of radius a= 5 cm , which is placed in the center of a spherical conducting shell of inner radius b = 10 cm and outer radius c = 12 cm. The outer conducting shell is charged with a -q charge. Determine...
7. ### Field along vertical axis to hemispherical shell

Homework Statement A hemispherical shell has radius ##R## and uniform charge density ##\sigma##. FInd the electric field at a point on the symmetry axis, at position ##z## relative to the center, for any ##z## value from ##-\infty## to ##\infty##. The Attempt at a Solution Let ##\theta## be...
8. ### Flux Through a Gaussian Surface

Homework Statement A metal sphere of radius a is surrounded by a metal shell of inner radius b and outer radius R, as shown in the diagram below. The flux through a spherical Gaussian surface located between a and b is 1.20Q/εo and the flux through a spherical Gaussian surface just outside R is...
9. ### Tube and Shell exercise

Homework Statement Would really appreciate if you could lend me a hand with this tube and shell exercise.[/B] m=0.24kg/s ##D=2.5*10-2m## ρ=850 kg/m^3 cp=2000 J/kg*K μ=2*10-4 kg/m*s λ=0.3W/m*k Homework Equations Dittus-Boelter:Nu=0.023*Re0.8*Prn where n=0.4 heating and n=0.3 for cooling, so in...
10. ### Work done in electrostatics

Homework Statement A metallic sphere is placed inside a hollow spherical shell. The potential on the inner and outer spheres is 10 V and 5 V respectively. What is the potential at the center?(The spheres are concentric.) Homework Equations $$V =\frac{kq}{r}$$ The Attempt at a Solution The...
11. ### Equation for the energy of an electron

Hello, I would like to thank all of the contributors on this site. You have helped me in more ways than I can count. I am struggling with the following concept and was wondering if anyone could clarify this. As the electron gets further away from the nucleus, its energy increases. This makes...
12. ### Calc II - Disk vs Shell method different volumes

So I'm getting ready for an exam on tuesday, and I'm using each method for volumes of revolutions for every problem but I'm not getting the same answers. So, let's use this as an example: y = 5x; the shaded region is from [1,2] Using the disk method (about the x-axis) I find: R(x) = 5x; r(x)...
