Question

A cube with a side length of 2 meters was placed at the origin point (Center of the cube at the origin). There is also a point load at the 8 corners of the cube. Q, which is the value of point loads, is equal to the sum of the coordinate values of that point. (Q = x + y + z)

a) Find the electric field and coulomb potential at the origin and at any point in space.

b) Suggest various charge distributions that make the electric field zero at the origin.

Thank you.

Answer #1

Here in question a i am drawing two diagram to show the charges present at the corners.

Distance between center and corner is aroot3 /2.

A cube of side 2a, centered at the origin and with the x, y, and
z axes perpendicular to the faces of the cube, carries a frozen-in
polarization of P = czzˆ, where c is a constant. Note that the
magnitude of P is not constant – it is a function of z.
(a) Find the total bound charge inside the cube, and the total
bound charge on each surface of the cube. The sum of all charges
should add...

Consider eight charges q, placed on each corner of a cube of side
length s. Show that the magnitude of the electric field at the
center of any face of the cube has a value of 2.18kq/s^2.

A cube of side L has one corner at the origin of coordinates,
and extends along the positive x, y, and z axes. Suppose the
electric field in this region is given by E = (a + b y2) j, where j
denotes the unit vector in the y direction, y denotes distance in
the y direction in meters, and a and b are constants. Find the
charge Q enclosed within the cube.

Eight point charges, each of magnitude q, are located on the
corners of a cube of edge s, as shown in Fig. 3 (i) Determine the
x, y, and z components of the resultant force exerted by the other
charges on the charge located at point A. (ii) What are the
magnitude and direction of this resultant force? (iii) Show that
the magnitude of the electric field at the center of any face of
the cube has a value of...

A circular ring of charge, with radius R,is placed in the
xy-plane and centered on the origin. The linear charge density of
the ring isλ=λ_o*cos^2(φ), where φ is the cylindrical polar
coordinate such that any point in space is indicated by (r, φ, z).
Find the electric potential anywhere on the z-axis as a function of
z . Using this electric potential find the electric field anywhere
on the z-axis also as a function of z

A point charge of -9.00x10-9 C is located at the point (x,y) =
(0,3) meters on the y-axis, while a second point charge of
+6.00x10-9 C is located at the point (x,y) = (4,0) meters on the
x-axis.
(a) Calculate the total electric field (magnitude and direction)
that these point charges generate at the origin of the
xy-coordinate system.
(b) A third point charge of -2.00x10-9 C is now placed at the
origin of the xy-coordinate system while keeping the...

A cube has point charges at all corners. No two charges have the
same value; all are unique. Is it possible for the electric
potential
(not the electric field!) at the center of the cube to be zero?
(Assume the point charge definition of potential in which V = 0 at
infinity.)
If the potential cannot be zero, explain why. If the potential can
be zero, what a special relationship must the charges have?

A 7.24 ?C point charge is at the center of a cube with sides of
length 0.450 m .
a) What is the electric flux through one of the six faces of the
cube??
b)How would your answer to part A change if the sides were of
length 0.250 m ?
c) Explain

Four point charges are in the corners of side length a, each of
which has charge q. Determine the force in the center of the square
in terms of q, a, and k.

Point charges q1=+2.00μC and q2=−2.00μC are placed at adjacent
corners of a square for which the length of each side is 3.50 cm .
Point a is at the center of the square, and point b is at the empty
corner closest to q2. Take the electric potential to be zero at a
distance far from both charges.
A point charge q3 = -5.00 μC moves from point a to point b. How
much work is done on q3 by...
