1. A cube 2 m on a side is located in the first octant in a Cartesian coordinate system, with one of its
corners at the origin. Find the total charge contained in the cube if the charge density is given by v =

2. Find the total charge contained in a cone defined by r 2m and 0 /4, given that v = 10r2cos2

3. A square with sides 2 m each has a charge of 40 C at each of its four corners. Determine the electric

4. Three point charges, each with Q = 3 nC, are located at the corners of a triangle in the xy-plane, with
one corner at the origin, another at (2 cm, 0, 0), and the third at (0, 2 cm, 0). Find the force acting on
the charge located at the origin.
5. Charge Q1 = 6C is located at (1cm, 1cm, 0) and charge Q2 is located at (0, 0, 4cm). What should Q2 be

6. Electric charge is distributed along an arc located in the xy-plane and defined by = 2cm and 0

7. Three infinite lines of charge, L1 = 3 nC/m, L2 = -3 nC/m, and L3 = 3 nC/m, are all parallel to the z-
axis. If they pass through the respective points (0, -b), (0, 0), and (0, b) in the xy-plane, find the
electric field at (a, 0, 0). Evaluate your result for a = 2 cm and b = 1 cm.

8. Given the electric flux density D = xy3z3ax C/m2, determine the total charge Q enclosed in a cube 2 m

one of its corners at the origin.

9. An infinitely long line of charge with uniform density L = 9 nC/m lies in the xy-plane parallel to the
y-axis at x = 2 m. Find the potential VAB at point A(3 m, 0, 4 m) in Cartesian coordinates with respect
to point B(0, 0, 0).

10. An electron with charge Qe = -1.6 x 10-19 C and mass me = 9.1 x 10-31 kg is injected at a point adjacent
to the negatively charged plate in the region between the plates of an air-filled parallel-plate
capacitor with separation of 1 cm and rectangular plates each 10 cm2 in area. If the voltage across
the capacitor is 10 V, find the time it takes the electron to reach the positively charged plate,
assuming that is starts from rest.
11. Four 5 nC positive charge are located in the z = 0 plane at the corners of a square 8 mm on a side. A
fifth 5 nC positive charge is located at a point 8 mm distant from each of the other charge. Determine
the magnitude of the total force on the fifth charge.

12. Let a point charge 25 nC be located at P1(4, -2, 7) and a charge 60 nC be at P2(-3, 4, -2). Determine the
point at the y-axis when Ex = 0.
13. The volume charge density v = oe-|x|-|y|-|z| exist over all free space. Find the total charge present.
14. Let D = 4xyax + 2(x2 + z2)ay + 4yzaz C/m2. Find the total charge enclosed in the rectangular
parallelepiped 0 < x < 2 m, 0 < y < 3 m, 0 < z < 5 m.
