    [SOLVED] Some Questions

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations
    not sure

    3. The attempt at a solution
    3) I thought answer was 4 because of mg = weight.
    17) i thought 1 A/2 * 2L = > R
    18) i thought 3) because need parallel circuit to make effective I smaller.
    19) not sure how to do
    32) not sure
    33) I believed it was 2 but it might be 1 because of way + or - are defined
    I thought it was C.

    3. How did you get this 4? mg=weight is correct.

    17. R is proportional to length/area. Now figure out the correct choice.

    18. In 1, 2 and 3, you are effectively shorting out the cell, and no current will flow through the lamp after S is closed.

    19. Since the lamps are in parallel, the PE across them is the same.

    32. The value of the elementary charge is the charge of an e- or p+. It can't be divided and must be integral in number. Figure it out.

    33. The total will be the sum of the charges. From that, you can calculate which sphere is gaining or losing charge.
