Problem 1 (4 pts): Suppose one plate of a parallel-plate capacitor is tilted so it makes a small angle u

with the other plate, as shown in the figure below. Determine a formula for the capacitance C in terms of

A, d, and , u where A is the area of each plate and u is small. Assume the plates are square. [Hint:

Imagine the capacitor as many infinitesimal capacitors in parallel.]

Problem 2 (6 pts): Consider the use of capacitors as memory cells. A charged capacitor would represent

a one and an uncharged capacitor a zero. Suppose these capacitors were fabricated on a silicon chip and

each has a capacitance of 30 femto-farads. The dielectric filling the space between the parallel plates has

dielectric constant K = 25 and a dielectric strength of 1.u x 1u

vm.

(a) If the operating voltage is 1.5 V, how many electrons would be stored on one of these capacitors

when charged?

(b) If no safety factor is allowed, how thin a dielectric layer could we use for operation at 1.5 V?

(c) Using the layer thickness from your answer to part (b), what would be the area of the capacitor

plates?

Problem 3 (4 pts): A 20.0-m length of wire consists of 10.0 m of copper followed by 10.0 m of aluminum,

both of diameter 1.4 mm. A voltage difference of 95 mV is placed across the composite wire.

(a) What is the total resistance (sum) of the two wires?

(b) What is the current through the wire?

(c) What are the voltages across the aluminum part and across the copper part?

Problem 4 (6 pts): An air conditioner draws 14 A at 220-V ac. The connecting cord is copper wire with a

diameter of 1.628 mm.

(a) How much power does the air conditioner draw?

(b) If the total length of wire is 15 m, how much power is dissipated in the wiring?

(c) If no. 12 wire, with a diameter of 2.053 mm, was used instead, how much power would be

dissipated in the wiring?

(d) Assuming that the air conditioner is run 12 h per day, how much money per month (30 days)

would be saved by using no. 12 wire? Assume that the cost of electricity is 12 cents per kWh.
