Problem Set #1

NOTE: Show ALL work and ALL answers on a piece of separate loose leaf paper. Not on this

sheet.

How many electrons

must be removed so that the charge on the rod becomes

+3.0µC?

6) Two small metallic spheres, each of

mass 0.20 g, are suspended by light

2)Three identical metal spheres, A, B, and C initially have net strings from a common point as

shown. The spheres are given the

charges as shown. Spheres A and B are now touched same electric charge, and it is found

together and then separated. Sphere C is then touched to that the two come to equilibrium when

sphere A and separated from it. Lastly, sphere C is touched 5°

each string is at an angle of 5° with

to sphere B and then separated from it. (a) How much

the vertical. If each string is 30.0 cm

charge ends up on sphere C? What is the total charge on

long, what is the magnitude of the

the three spheres (b) before they are allowed to touch each

charge on each sphere?

other and (c) after they have touched?

A B C

7) Three charges are arranged as shown. Calculate the

magnitude and direction of the net electrostatic force on

+5q -1q None

each of the three charges.

6 µC 1.5 µC -2 µC

3)Two small spheres are initially neutral and separated by a 3 cm 2 cm

distance of 0.50 m. Suppose that 3.0 x 1013 electrons are

removed from one sphere and placed on the other. (a)

What is the magnitude of the electrostatic force that acts on 8) Two charges are sitting 1.5 m apart with a force of 3 N

each sphere? (b) Is the force attractive or repulsive? between them. They are now moved farther apart to 2.25 m

Explain how you can tell. and one of the charges is increased by a factor of 4. What is

the magnitude of the new force between the two charges?

4) Three charges are fixed to an xy coordinate system. A

charge of +18 µC is on the y axis at y = +3.0 m. A charge of 9) The distance between two charges is increased by a factor of

–12 µC is at the origin. Lastly, a charge of + 45 µC is on the 3 while the values of the charges are both decreased by a

x axis x =+3.0 m. Calculate the magnitude and direction of factor of ½. By what fraction does the magnitude of the

the net electrostatic force on the charge x = +3.0 m. force change?

5)Skid of 40 kg and Mitch of 60 kg are standing on ice. They is to remain constant while the distance between the two

are each carrying massless spheres of charge +500 µC charges increases by a factor of 2, by what factor will each

while standing 2 m apart. (a) Calculate the electrostatic charge change?

force on each sphere. Are the forces the same or different?

Explain. (b) Calculate the accelerations for Skid and Mitch

at the moment they are 2 m apart. Are they the same or

different? Explain. (c) As Skid and Mitch move farther apart

do their accelerations increase, decrease, or remain the

same? Explain.

Skid Mitch

Ice
