Announcements Homework for tomorrow… (Ch. 25, CQ 12, Probs. 18 & 40) Office hours… MWF 12:30-1:30 pm TR 9-10 am Tutorial Learning Center (TLC) hours: ?? Chapter 25 Electric Forces & Charges (Coulomb’s Law) Newton’s Law of Gravitation, revisited.. where G 6.67 10 11 Nm kg r 2 Notice: m2 2 Mass is always positive. Gravity is always attractive. m1 Coulomb’s Law.. where N ×m K = 8.99 ´10 C2 q2 2 r 9 q1 Notice: Charges can be positive or negative. Force can be attractive or repulsive. Coulomb’s Law - restrictions charges must be small compared to their separation (“point-like”) OK Not OK Quiz Question 1 Two uniformly charged spheres are firmly fastened to and electrically insulated from frictionless pucks on an air table. The charge on sphere 2 is three times the charge of sphere 1. Which force diagram correctly shows the magnitude and direction of the electrostatic force on each object? Coulomb’s Law and Superposition Q: What is the ? q1 q2 q3 Coulomb’s Law and Superposition Q: What is the A: ? q1 q2 q3 Quiz Question 2 Two protons (p1 and p2) and an electron (e) lie on a straight line as shown. The direction of the net force on p1 , p2 , and e, respectively, are: p1 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. left, right, left left, right, right right, left, left right, left, right right, right, left p2 e Prob. 25.16 What is the net electric force on charge A in Figure EX25.16? Prob. 25.37 What is the force F on the 5.0 nC charge in Figure P25.37? Give your answer as a magnitude and an angle measured cw or ccw (specify which) from the + x-axis.
