Directions Please Write your name on all of the papers on your table, NOW! Test time Resources 14:00-15:20 November 4, 2009 Calculators, and “Formulas for the National Test in Mathematics Courses A & B”, and the formula sheet for Physics A, FYANV-College. You may also use your personalized blue-booklet. The booklet must have your name and no calculations or solution to any problem are supposed to be on it. The test is a VG/MVG-level test and consists of a total of 6 questions.

The test:

For the problems short answers are not enough. They require: • that you write down what you do, that you explain your train of thought, • that you, when necessary, draw figures. • When you solve problems graphically/numerically please indicate how you have used your resources. Problem 3 is a larger problems which may take up to 40 minutes to solve completely. Problems 3 and 6 are of the greatest importance for the highest grade, MVG. It is important that you try to solve them. A description of what I will consider when evaluating your work, is attached to the problem. Try all of the problems. It can be relatively easy, even towards the end of the test, to receive some points for partial solutions. A positive evaluation can be given even for unfinished solutions. Score The maximum score is 33 points, 25 of them VG points and 2¤ problems. Mark levels The maximum number of points you can receive for each solution is indicated after each problem. If a problem can give 2 “Pass”-points and 1 “Pass with distinction”- point this is written (2/1). Some problems are marked with ¤, which means that they more than other problems offer opportunities to show knowledge that can be related to the criteria for Pass with Special Distinction in Assessment Criteria 2000. Maximum score: 33: 8G/25VG/¤¤ G: 11 points (or having G in G-part) VG: 22 points and G+ in G-part MVG: 25 points and G+ in G-part MVG-quality works ¤¤ The case of those who performed well here but have G-/G in the G-part will be evaluated individually, and case by case (subject related.)

1. A small spherical ball of mass 2.00 g and net charge − 1.00 μC falls frictionless between two long horizontal plates from point A on the negatively charged upper plate to B on the positively charged lower plate. The electric potential difference between the plates is 1.00 kV . The plates are 10.0 cm apart. The size of the ball is negligible compare to the distance between the plates, and it is released from rest at plate A . Find the kinetic energy of the ball just before hitting the lower plate B .

2. Three of the four small identical conducting spheres illustrated in the figure below are charged initially. Sphere A is initially uncharged. The initial charge on sphere B is unknown. The initial charge of sphere C is QC0 = −38 mC . Sphere D is initially charged to QD0 = 57 mC . Sphere A is touched to sphere B and then separated. Sphere A then touches sphere C and separated. Finally sphere A is touched sphere D and separated.
