### Part A. Please choose the one alternative that best completes the statements or answers the questions, circle your choice using pen and justify your choice.

Make sure that only ONE of the alternatives is chosen for each question. Two answers to one question will result in loss of the mark of that question.

• 1. The average distance of the electron from the proton in the hydrogen atom is 0.51 10 10 m. What is the electric field from the proton’s charge at the location of the electron? (k e = 8.99 10 9 Nm 2 /C 2 , e = 1.6 10 19 C)

4.

An uncharged conductor has a hollow cavity inside of it. Within this cavity there is a charge of +10 µC that does not touch the conductor. There are no other charges in the vicinity. Which statement about this conductor is true? (There may be more than one correct choice.)

• a) The inner and outer surfaces of the conductor each contain charges of -5 µC.

• b) Both surfaces of the conductor carry no excess charge because the conductor is uncharged.

• c) The net electric field within the material of the conductor points away from the +10 µC charge.

• d) The outer surface of the conductor contains +10 µC of charge and the inner surface contains -10 µC.

• e) The inner surface of the conductor carries a charge of -10 µC and its outer surface carries no excess charge.

Justification:
• 5. Under electrostatic conditions, the electric field just outside the surface of any charged conductor

• a) is always zero because the electric field is zero inside conductors.

• b) can have nonzero components perpendicular to and parallel to the surface of the conductor.

• c) is always perpendicular to the surface of the conductor.

• d) is always parallel to the surface.

• e) is perpendicular to the surface of the conductor only if it is a sphere, a cylinder, or a flat sheet.

• a. at x = R/2, y = 0, z = 0

• b. at x = 0, y = R/2, z = 0

• c. at the origin

• d. at x = 0, y = 0, z = R/2

• e. The flux does not depend on the position of the charge as long as it is inside the sphere

4
• a) The potential at points A and B are equal, and the potential at point C is higher than the potential at point A.

• b) The potential at all three locations (A, B, C) is the same because the field is uniform.

• c) The potential at point A is the highest, the potential at point B is the second highest, and the potential at point C is the lowest.

• d) The potential at points A and B are equal, and the potential at point C is lower than the potential at point A.

• 9. A +4.0 μC-point charge and a -4.0-μC point charge are placed as shown in the figure. What is the potential difference, V A - V B , between points A and B? (k = 1/4πε 0 = 8.99 × 10 9 N ∙ m 2 /C 2 )
