Physics 220 Homework Problems, Spring Term, 2008
1-1. A cat slides down a rubber rod and falls from the rodinto a metal pail A resting on a non-conducting shelf with two other metal pails, B and C, which are incontact, but neither is in contact with A. The shelf breaks when the cat lands in A, transferring charge toA, and all pails fall separated to the non-conductingfloor. The cat then runs away.(a) At the end of this process the charge on pail A1. is positive.2. is negative.3. is zero.(b) At the end of this process the charge on pail B1. is positive.2. is negative.3. is zero.4. has the same sign as pail A.5. has the same sign as pail C.(c) At the end of this process the charge on pail C1. is positive.2. is negative.3. is zero.4. has the same sign as pail B.5. both (1) and (4) are correct.1-2.
