Three point charges lie along a straight line as shown in the
figure below, where q1 = 5.52 µC, q2 = 1.61 µC, and q3 = -2.14 µC.
The separation distances are d1 = 3.00 cm and d2 = 2.00 cm.
Calculate the magnitude and direction of the net electric force on
each of the charges.

Two thin plastic spherical shells (shown in cross section in the
figure below) are uniformly charged. The center of the larger
sphere is at (0, 0); it has a radius of 12 cm and a uniform
positive charge of +7 ✕ 10−9 C. The center of the smaller sphere is
at (27 cm, 0); it has a radius of 3 cm and a uniform negative
charge of −3 ✕ 10−9 C.

Three charges are at the corners of an equilateral triangle, as
shown in the figure below. Calculate the electric field at a point
midway between the two charges on the x-axis. (Let

μC, and
q3 = −3.50 μC.)

The empty cubical box shown in the figure has no top face; that
is, the box is made up of only five square faces. The side length
of the cubic box is L. A- If all five faces have the same inertia,
at what height above the bottom of the box is the center of mass?
Express your answer in terms of L.

A square dartboard has side length 1, and is oriented as a
diamond shape.
If I throw a dart uniformly at this dartboard, let <X,Y>
be the x- and y- coordinates of the point the dart hits, with the
center of the dartboard at the origin.
(a) Write the probability density function fx(a)
describing the distribution of X.
(b) compute EX (expected value) and Var[X] (Variance)
(c) Are X and Y independent? Why or Why not?

The assembly shown in the figure below consists of a thin rod of
length
ℓ = 23.2 cm
and mass
m = 1.20 kg
with a solid sphere of diameter
d = 10.0 cm
and mass
M = 2.00 kg
attached to its top. The assembly is free to pivot about a
frictionless axle through the bottom of the rod. The assembly is
initially vertical and at rest when it starts to rotate
clockwise.
A thin rod of length ℓ...

The sinusoidal wave shown in the figure below is traveling in
the positive x-direction and has a frequency of 53.7
Hz.
A sinusoidal wave is plotted on a coordinate plane. The wave is
vertically centered on the horizontal axis. The vertical distance
between a crest and a trough is 8.26 cm, and the horizontal
distance between a crest and the nearest trough is 4.20 cm.
(a) Find the amplitude.
cm
(b) Find the wavelength.
cm

Four point charges are at the corners of a square of side
a as shown in the figure below. Determine the magnitude
and direction of the resultant electric force on q, with
ke, q, and a in symbolic
form. (Let B = 4.0q and C =
2.0q. Assume that the +x-axis is to the right and
the +y-axis is up along the page.)

The spring of the pressure gauge shown in the figure below has a
force constant of 1 400 N/m, and the piston has a diameter of 1.60
cm. As the gauge is lowered into water in a lake, what change in
depth causes the piston to move in by 0.580 cm?
