Therefore, the ratio F e /F g doesn’t change with distance.c) The universe is charge neutral on large scales. Therefore, there is nonet electromagnetic force on astronomical distances. However, gravitationalmass adds up, and gravitation is only an attractive (and long-distance) force, itdominates.Problem 2 (5 points)a) The ratio of the forces would be∣ F e ∣∣∣∣ = k Q E Q M. (2)F g G M E M MWe need to estimate the number of protons (and electrons) in Earth and inthe Moon. We assume protons contribute to roughly half the mass (neutronsare the other part, and electrons are 1000 times lighter). Therefore, the Earthhas approximately N E ≈ (M E /m p )/2 protons. On the other hand, the Moonhas approximately N M ≈ (M M /m p )/2 protons. Assuming the electrons’ chargeis (1 − 10 −11 ) times the proton charge, the Earth would carry a charge Q E ≈eN E × 10 −11 , and the moon would have charge Q M ≈ eN M × 10 −11 . The ratioof the forces would then be( ) ( )∣ F e ∣∣∣∣ = k ME2m pe × 10 −11 MM2m pe × 10 −11 = k e 2× 10 −22 = (3)F g G M E M MG=4m 2 p9.0 × 10 9 N · m 2 /C 26.67 × 10 −11 N · m 2 /kg 2 (1.6 × 10 −19 C) 2(1.67 × 10 −27 kg) 2 × 10−22 ≈ 1 × 10 14 .1

) This system would be highly unstable, the repulsive electrostatic forcewould tear them apart. It would be 14 orders higher than the gravitationalattractive force!Problem 3 (5 points)a) The simplest example is placing another positive charge Q 2 = Q 1 symetricallyat x 2 = −x 1 . Another example is placing a bigger second charge withmagnitude Q 2 = 4Q 1 at x 2 = −2x 1 .We can also derive a general rule for finding Q 2 and x 2 . Let us assume thenet force on charge Q 0 is zero. How do Q 2 and x 2 depend on Q 1 and x 1 ?|F 10 | = |F 20 |,k Q 0Q 1x 2 1= k Q 0Q 2,x 2 2Q 1Q 2=(x1x 2) 2. (4)b) When we displace Q 0 by ∆x, its distance to charge Q 1 decreases, and soit is repelled more, also, it is repelled less from the other charge Q 2 . Therefore itis pushed back into the equilibrium position – the charge will start to oscillate.Y&F 21.9 (5 points)The force of gravity must equal the electric forcer =√ke 2gm e=⇒√(9.0 × 10 9 N · m 2 /C 2 )(1.602 × 10 −19 C) 2(9.8m/s)(9.1 × 10 −31 ≈ 5.1m.

It was originally traveling to theright with velocity ⃗v 0 , and we want it to travel with velocity ⃗v = −⃗v 0 in time t.From ⃗v = ⃗v 0 +⃗a.t we have⃗v = −⃗v 0 = ⃗v 0 +⃗a.t ⇒ ⃗a = −2 ⃗v 0t .Putting ⃗a into the equation for the force, we obtain⃗Eq = m⃗a = −m 2⃗v 0t⃗E = − 2m⃗v 0qt= − 2(6.64 × 10−27 kg)(1.5 × 10 3 m/s))2(1.602 × 10 −19 C)(2.65 × 10 −6 s)2≈ 23.5N/C. (6)

Y&F 21.31 (5 points)a) The electric field doesn’t change the electron’s speed in the x-direction.So the time of travel before he flies out of the field ist = s/v x = 0.02m/1.6 × 10 6 m/s = 1.25 × 10 −8 s.Because it just misses the upper plate, its distance traveled in the y directionis h/2 = 0.5cm. The motion in the y-direction is described by (the startingy-velocity is zero)y = h 2 = 1 2 a yt 2 = 1 F e2 m t2 = 1 Ee2 m t2 ,so the magnitude of the electric field is thenE = h 22met 2 = (0.01m)(9.1 × 10 −31 kg)(1.602 × 10 −19 C)(1.25 × 10 −8 ≈ 364N/C. (7)s)2b) If the particle was a proton, its mass would be greater, so it would accelerateless – and NOT hit the plates. Its vertical displacement would be (notethat it will be downward, not upward, because the proton charge is positive!)y p = 1 2 a yt 2 = − 1 Ee2 m t2 = (8)= − 1 (364N/C)(1.602 × 10 −19 C)2 1.67 × 10 −27 (1.25 × 10 −8 s) 2 ≈ −2.73 × 10 −6 m.kgc) As in b), the proton will not hit the plates, because although it feelsthe same electric force (in magnitude), its mass is greater, so it accelerates less.Also, because its charge is opposite, its path will bend downwards, not upwards.d) The acceleration of each particle in the electric field is a = Ee/m is ofthe order 10 10 m/s 2 for the proton (and 10 13 for the electron). We can see it ismuch much greater than the gravitational acceleration g, and so it is reasonableto neglect gravity here.3

8.02x – Problem Set 4 SolutionsProblem 1 (8 points)a) The force on charge Q 1 due to charge Q 2 is attractive, therefore pointingin the x+ direction. The distance between the charges is 1m. The magnitudeof the force isF = k Q 1Q 2d 2 ≈ 9.0 × 10 9 N. (1)b) The x-component of the electric field will be the smallest exactly in themiddle between the charges. If we moved away from x = 0, the field from oneof the charges would increase more than the amount the field from the othercharge would decrease. Therefore it will be the smallest in the middle. It willpoint in the x+ direction, with magnitudeE = k |Q 1|(d/2) 2 + k |Q 2|(d/2) 2 = 8kQ 1d 2 ≈ 72.0 × 109 V/m. (2)c) We will plot the components of the electric field, E x and E y for y = −0.1,y = 0 and y = 0.1. The electric field has componentsE x = E x (1) + E x (2) = (3)Q 1 x − x= k √ 1(x − x 1 ) 2 + y 2 (x − x1 ) 2 + y + k |Q 2 | x − x√ 22 (x − x 2 ) 2 + y 2 (x − x2 ) 2 + y , 2E y = E y (1) + E y (2) = (4)Q 1 y= k √(x − x 1 ) 2 + y 2 (x − x1 ) 2 + y − k |Q 2 | y√ 2 (x − x 2 ) 2 + y 2 (x − x2 ) 2 + y , 2First the E x component plots (dashed line: y = −0.1 and y = 0.1, thick line:y = 0):1

And the E y plots (dashed line: y = −0.1, thick line: y = 0, dotted line: y = 0.1):Just as an extra, we also add a 3D plot of E x and E y . . .d) For the plot of the field lines see the book, picture 21.26(b). From thatwe can see that the x-component at y = 0 goes to infinity at the point charges,and is smaller between them. For y = ±0.1, the x-component is almost zero atx = ±0.5, because the field lines are almost vertical. When moving away fromthe charges at small y, E x quickly finds its maximum (dense field lines turningtowards x) and then decreases, because the field lines become much less dense.On the other hand, the E y -component is zero for y = 0, nonzero for y = ±10,and changes sign at x = 0, which agrees with our plots.Problem 2 (8 points)a) We have two charges, Q 1 = 1 C and Q 2 = −2 C, positioned at x 1 and x 2 .The potentials areQ 1V 1 = k|x − x 1 | , V 2 = k|x − x 2 | . (5)The plot of the potentials V 1 , V 2 and both of them combined:Q 22

) For distances x ≫ 1m, the sum of the potentials can be roughly approximatedby a potential from a single charge Q 1 + Q 2 = −1 C, located at x = 0.We can support our claim by a simple computation:Q 1V = V 1 + V 2 = k|x − x 1 | + k Q 2|x − x 2 | ≈≈ k Q 1 + Q 2|x|= V ≈ . (6)Just to check where this rough approximation makes sense, we plot V and V ≈for large x.c) The potential energy for Q 3 = −0.1C in the potential of the two chargesis U 3 = Q 3 (V 1 + V 2 ).Y&F 24.60 (6 points)a) With the switch open, the charges on the capacitors distribute themselvesas on Fig.3. The capacitance of the top line is the same as the capacitance ofthe bottom line (two capacitors in series) C top = 2µF. From the symmetry wefind that the charge will distribute itself evenly, Q 1 = Q 2 = Q/2. The totalcapacitance of the net of capacitors is C = 4µF. FromV ab = Q C = 2Q 1C3

we get the total charge Q = 2Q 1 = 210V4µF = 840µC. The potential differencesV ad and V ac will then be V ad = Q 1 /3µF = 140V and V ac = Q 1 /6µF = 70V. Wethen obtainV cd = V ad − V ac = +70V. (7)b) When we now close the switch, the situation will look like in the secondpicture. Because C 12 = C 34 = 9µF (C 12 is 3µF and 6µF in parallel), we caneasily see from symmetry, that V ac = V cb . So all the potential differences acrossall of the capacitors will be the same, V = V ac ! How big are they?V ab = V ac + V cb = 2V ⇒ V = V ab /2 = 105V (8)across each of the four capacitors.c) How much charge flowed through the line? We can compute the chargeson each of the conductors, because we know the potential differences acrossthem.Q 1 = Q 4 = V × 3µF = 315µC,Q 2 = Q 3 = V × 6µF = 630µC.The total charge on the inner plates of the conductors is zero, −Q 1 −Q 2 +Q 3 +Q 4 = 0. But before the switch was turned on, the total charge on the insideplates of capacitors 1 and 3 was zero as well. However, now it isQ top = −Q 1 + Q 3 = 315µC, (9)so this amount of charge had to flow through the switch.Y&F 24.71 (8 points)The plane where the two slabs of dielectric meet, is an equipotential surface.We can imagine a thin metallic plate in there – and nothing would change.

8.02x – Problem Set 8 SolutionsProblem 1 (10 points)a) The currents run in the same direction ˆx. The field created by the firstwire has direction ẑ at the place of the second wire. The electrons in thesecond wire move to −ˆx (opposite the current), so the Lorentz force on themhas direction −ŷ, towards the first wire. The wires attract each other.b) Now the currents run in opposite directions. Replace the velocity ofelectrons in the second wire by −⃗v, so we get force − ⃗ F (in the ŷ direction). Thewires thus repel each other.Problem 2 (10 points)The electrons in the CRT tube are deflected to the right, when looking fromthe front. This could be caused by an electric field pointing horizontally to theleft, or a magnetic field pointing vertically upwards. Let’s try to distinguishthese cases by moving the apparatus around.If we rotate the apparatus in the horizontal plane, and the beam is stilldeflected to the right ⇒ the problem-causing field is a vertical magnetic field.If we rotate the apparatus in the horizontal plane and find that the deflectionchanges, and that there are two (opposite) orientations for which it is zero ⇒the villain is the horizontal electric field.1

Problem 3 (10 points)a) Each nucleus has energy E = 208 × 2.8TeV = (208 × 2.8 × 10 12 )(1.6 ×10 −19 )J = 9.3 × 10 −5 J. Using the relativistic equation E 2 = p 2 c 2 + m 2 0c 4 forthe energy and momentum, we get√E2p =c 2 − m2 0 c2 = (1)√ (9.3 ) × 10−5 2J=3 × 10 8 − [208(1.67 × 10m/s−27 kg)(3 × 10 8 m/s)] 2 ≈≈−13 kg.m3.1 × 10 .sAll of p comes just from the first term. We could have seen this much easierin the eV units. The rest mass (and energy) of the lead nucleus is E 0 =208(1.67 × 10 −27 kg)(3 × 10 8 m/s) 2 = 3.1 × 10 −8 J = 0.2TeV. The total energywhen accelerated is 208×2.8TeV. Obviously, almost all of the energy comes frommomentum. Thus p ≈ 208 × 2.8TeV = (208 × 2.8)(1.6 × 10 −19 )/(3 × 10 8 m/s) =3.1 × 10 −13 kg.m/s.b) The radius of the path of a charged particle in a magnetic field is R = pqB ,so the magnetic field needed to keep the nuclei on their trajectory isB = pqR = 3.1 × 10 −13 kg.m/s(1.602 × 10 −19 ≈ 71T. (2)C)(27km)c) A linear accelerator of length L = 100m would have to have a potentialdifference of V = E/q ≈ 6 ×10 14 between its ends. This would mean an electricfield of magnitude E field = V/d ≈ 6 × 10 12 V/m, which is ridiculously high. Forcomparison, the fields inside atoms have strengths of orderE atomic ≈ kqr 2 a≈ (9.0 × 109 N · m 2 /C 2 )(1.602 × 10 −19 C)(10 −10 m) 2 ≈ 10 10 V m . (3)2

PROBLEM SET 10; 802x; SPRING 20051) The differential equation governing an RLC circuit is:-Ldi/dt - Ri + q/C = 0. Using i= - dq/dt, we have,Ld 2 q/dt 2 + Rdq/dt +q/C = 0.The differential equation governing a mass on a spring is (with velocity proportional viscous damping):md 2 x/dt 2 + bdx/dt + Kx = 0. Here the mass is m, K is the spring constant and b is the coefficientof proportionality between velocity and the viscous retarding force.Thus: M and L play the same roles; b and R play the same roles; and, K plays the same role as 1/C.Mv is the momentum that will persist unless changed by a force, and Li is the flux in an inductor thatwill persist unless changed by an external agent. The kinetic energy stored in motion is (1/2) mv 2 , whileenergy is stored in the inductor as (1/2)Li 2 . The resistor is an agent for energy loss at the rate i 2 R. Energyis lost to viscocity at the rate bv 2 . Energy is stored in a capacitor as (1/2)q 2 /C and energy is stored in thespring as (1/2)Kx 2 .2) The self-inductance of the circuit causes the current to persist until the voltage developed across the gapacting as a capacitor causes it to stop. Now this gap usually has a very small capacitance and the current,which we have assumed to be large, can charge the gap to a very large voltage. Thus the spark developswhen the air brakes down. The energy for the spark comes from the energy stored in the self-inductance ofthe circuit, (1/2)Li 2 .The equilibrium current is i = V/R = 100/10 = 10 amps. The energy stored in the inductor is (1/2Li 2 =(1/2)(1/1000)(100) = 1/20 joule.3) a. Compare figure 30.18 and fig 30.6b. Note that points a and b are reversed. Thus, according to equation30.8, dI/dt = (Vb – Va)/L = - 1.04V/0.260H = -4 A/s. Thus, the current is decreasing.b. From a. we know that di = (-4A/s) dt. After integrating both sides of the expression with respect to t, weobtain I = (-4A/s)t and so I = (12.0A) – 4A/s * 2s = 4A.4) a. U = P*t = (200W)(24h/dayx3600s/h) = 1.73x10 7 J.b. U = L I 2 and therefore L = 2U/I 2 = 2 (1.73x10 7 J)/(80A 2 ) = 5406H.5) When switch 1 is closed and switch 2 is open, the loop rule gives L dI/dt + IR = 0 and thereforedI/dt = - I R/L. Integrating from I 0 to I on the LHS and 0 to t on the RHS gives ln(I/I 0 ) = - R/L t andtherefore I(t) = I 0 exp(-t/(L/R))

8.02x – Problem Set 11 SolutionsProblem 1 (10 points)How to tell whether sound is an EM wave? Let us just list some of theobvious differences. Sound waves do not propagate in vacuum, they need somemedium (gas, solid, or liquid) to support them. The speeds of propagation havevery different magnitudes for sound and EM waves.However, to be sure to tell the two types of waves apart, we should measuretheir effects. Simply said, you can see light and hear sound, but not the reverse.An antenna (a metal rod) can “catch” EM waves, they would make the freecharges move in it. This effect can be measured. However, you will not get anyeffect by trying to induce charge motion (or EM fields) by sound. On the otherhand, you can hear a sound wave (your ears measure pressure changes), but notan EM wave.Sound is a longitudial mechanical wave, molecules of air bumping and pushingeach other, making the signal spread towards the receiever. Longitudialmeans the displacements of air molecules are in the direction of the signal.On the other hand, EM waves are transverse, meaning that the displacements(electric and magnetic fields) change in the direction perpendicular to the signaldirection.Y&F 29.38 (10 points)a) Let us use the microscopical Ohm’s law. The electric field is proportionalto resistivity and current density.E = ρj = ρI A = (2.0 × 10−8 Ωm)(16A)2.1 × 10 −6 m 2 = 0.15 V m . (1)b) The field is changing at ratedEdt = d ( ) ρI= ρ dIdt A A dt = 2.0 × 10−8 Ωm2.1 × 10 −6 m 2 (4000A/s) = 38 V ms . (2)c) The displacement current density in the wire is (taking ǫ ≈ ǫ 0 for copper)j D = ǫ 0dEdt = 3.4 × 10−10 A m 2 . (3)d) The magnitude of the displacement current isI D = Aj D = (2.1 × 10 −6 m 2 )(3.4 × 10 −10 A/m 2 ) = 7.14 × 10 −16 A, (4)1

which is many orders of magnitude smaller than the conduction current. Thereforethe magnetic field is very well approximated only by the magnetic field fromthe conduction current,B c = µ 0I c2πr = µ 0 16A2π 0.06m = 5.33 × 10−5 T. (5)Just for comparison, the magnitude of the magnetic field due to the displacementcurrent is totally negligible:Y&F 32.6 (10 points)B D = µ 0I D2πr = µ 0 7.14 × 10 −16 A= 2.38 × 10 −21 T. (6)2π 0.06ma) Our EM wave has ⃗ B(x,t) = ŷB 0 sin(kx + ωt). Sketching sin(kx + ωt) fortime t = 0 and t = ∆t we realize it propagates in the −ˆx direction. In detail,point A (x = 0) is where the amplitude is zero for time t = 0. At time t = ∆t,point B where the amplitude is zero can be found from k∆x + ω∆t = 0, givingus ∆x = −(ω/k)∆t. This means the wave has moved to the left.b) We know the relationship between the wavevector and the wavelength,k = 2π/λ. The wavelength is the distance the wave travels in one time period,λ = cT = c/f. The frequency of the wave is thenf = kc2π = (1.38 × 104 rad/m)(3 × 10 8 m/s)= 6.59 × 10 11 Hz, (7)2πgiving us also the angular frequency ω,11 radω = 2πf = 4.14 × 10s . (8)c) The direction of the electric field is such that ⃗ E × ⃗ B points in the directionof propagation. If ⃗ B has direction ŷ, ⃗ E must then point in the ẑ direction forthe wave to propagate in the −ˆx direction. The magnitude of E is simply|E| = c|B|, so we get⃗B(x,t) = ŷB 0 sin(kx + ωt), (9)⃗E(x,t) = ẑ(cB 0 )sin(kx + ωt) =[(= ẑ(2.48V/m)sin 1.38 × 10 4 rad ) (x + 4.14 × 10m212 rads) ]t .
