Question

Given three charges: 2 C, 4 C, and -3 C:

a. Draw a setup of these charges in which the center charge can be held stationary between the other two charges.

b. In your setup, how far must the center charge be from the other two charges in order to be balanced?

Answer #1

**PART (a):**

From the given charges, two charges are positive and one is negative.

So, negative charge should be kept at center so that the two positive charges pull the center charge each other (opposite charges attract).

**PART (b):**

We know that the center charge (-3 C) will be pulled by other two charges.

When their pulling forces becomes equal, the center charge will remain stationary.

In that case, we can say that the electrostatic forces is balanced.

**That is the distance between central charge and charge (4 C) should be times the distance between charge (2 C) and the central charge.**

Three charges, each of charge 5.0 ""C are located at the
vertices of an equilateral triangle whose sides are 10 cm in
length. a) What is the total force, magnitude and direction, on
charge I? b) What is-the total potential energy of the three
charges? c) Charges 2 and 3 remain fixed, but charge one is now
allowed to move. If it starts from rest, what i.s its velocity when
it is very far away from charges 2 and 3?...

1) 2 point charges are separated by a distance of 8 cm. The left
charge is 48 mC and the
right charge is -16mC.
Using a full sheet of paper: draw the 2 charges separated by 8cm,

2. Suppose that for an experimental device setup we have to
choose settings for three parameters. There are 4, 3 and 5 settings
for parameters 1, 2 and 3 respectively. The order in which the
settings will be chosen is not does not matter. How may
configurations does the device allow? A random sample of 8
configurations is selected. What is the probability that among the
configurations in the sample all three settings for parameter 2 are
used.
