Module 13 test (19 points) (k= 9.

0 x 10 Newton m / C )
9 . 2 2

Name ___________________

1. (1 pt) A physicist uses a positively charged rod to give a metal sphere a negative charge. Did the physicist charge by conduction or induction?

2. (1 pt) An ion has more protons than electrons. What is the sign of its electric charge?

3. (1 pt) Two charged objects (one positive and one negative) are held apart with a long bar:



If the charge of these two objects does not change, even after a long time, is the bar made of an insulator or a conductor?

4. (1 pt) When we use Coulumb’s Law to calculate the force that exists between two charges which are free to move, we say that we are calculating the instantaneous electrostatic force. Why must we say “instantaneous”?

5. (1 pt) Two charged objects are isolated in space. The charge on the positive object is twice the charge on the negative object. If the positive object exerts a 5.0 N force on the negative object, what is the magnitude of the force exerted by the negative object on the positive object?

what happens (quantitatively) to the magnitude of the force? 7.6.1 C charge is placed 45 cm from a -9. If. what happens (quantitatively) to the magnitude of the force? 8. What is the force between them? Is it attractive or repulsive? 9. half of the charge is taken out of one of the objects. (2 pts) Two stationary charges are arranged as follows: -5. (1½ pts) A +2. (1 pt) Two charged objects are held in place and the electrostatic force between them is measured.3 x 105 N.3 C charge.1 mC . what is the charge (including sign) of the other object? 10. If one of the objects is charged at +3.2 mC 1. If. (1½ pts) Two charged objects are 1. suddenly.0 m -8. suddenly the distance between the objects is halved.2 m apart and experience a repulsive force of 4. (1 pt) Two charged objects are held in place and the electrostatic force between them is measured.5 m What is the value of the electric field at the black dot? 2.1 mC.

what is the instantaneous electrostatic force (magnitude and direction) on the +7.1 mC 13.6 mC 21 degrees 25 degrees -2. (3 pts) Consider the following electric field: A B (questions on next page) .6mC particle? +7.5 mC m 0.4 mC charge experience at the black dot in the previous problem? 12. (1 pt) What force would a +6.65 0.65 m +1. (3 pts) In the following setup.11.

0 C.continued from previous page) a. Is particle B positively or negatively charged? b. Where should a freely moving charged paritlce be placed so that it experiences the least acceleration? Maximum time allowed: 3 hours Items allowed: Calculator.(Problem 13 . what is the magnitude of particle B’s charge? c. If the magnitude of particle A’s charge is 1.
