Practice Quiz 2

1) An electron and a positron are released simultaneously from rest and start to move towards each other
because of the attractive Coulomb force between them. (Note: A positron is the antiparticle of the electron,
being in all aspects identical to the electron except in the sign of its electrical charge. The charge of the
positron is +e, while that of the electron is -e.) They are initially separated by a distance d. The two
particles eventually collide. When they collide,
A) they are closer to the electron's initial position.
*B) they are at the midpoint of their initial separation.
C) they are closer to the positron's initial position.
D) Not enough data is given to predict where they collide.

C) Nm/C.
D) N/C.
4) Two point charges of +7.00 C and +10.0 C are placed inside a cube of edge length 0.100 m. The net

D) -0.79 N
8. If a conductor is in electrostatic equilibrium near an electrical charge:
