The due time is entral time. hapters 27 and 28 problems. 001 (part 1 of 1) 0 points t is known that about one electron per atom of copper contributes to the current. The atomic mass of copper is g and its density is 8.92 g/cm 3. alculate the average drift speed of electrons traveling through a copper wire with a cross-sectional area of 1 mm 2 when carrying a current of 1 (values similar to those for the electric wire to your study lamp). orrect answer: m/s. Given : N = 1, M = g, ρ = 8.92 g/cm 3, = 1 mm 2 = m 2, = 1, and q e = /electron. We first calculate n, the number of currentcarrying electrons per unit volume in copper. ssuming one free conduction electron per atom, n = N ρ M, where N is vogadro s number and ρ and M are the density and the atomic weight of copper, respectively n = n ( 1 electron atom ) N ρ M. ( 1 electron ) atoms atom g (8.92 g/cm 3) ( 10 6 cm 3 ) 1 m 3 = electrons/m 3. The drift speed is v d, v d = n q e = electrons/m 3 1 ( /electron) 1 ( m 2 ) = m/s. 002 (part 1 of 3) 0 points The damage caused by electric shock depends on the current flowing through the body; 1 m can be felt and 5 m is painful. bove 15 m, a person loses muscle control, and 70 m can be fatal. person with dry skin has a resistance from one arm to the other of about Ω. When skin is wet, the resistance drops to about 5300 Ω. What is the minimum voltage placed across the arms that would produce a current that could be felt by a person with dry skin? orrect answer: 100 V. Given : min = 1 m, and R dry = Ω. The minimum voltage depends on the minimum current for a given resistance, so V min = min R dry ( ) 1 = (1 m) ( Ω) 1000 m = 100 V. 003 (part 2 of 3) 0 points Using the same electric potential as in Part 1, what would be the current if the person had wet skin? orrect answer: m. Given : V min = 100 V, and R wet = 5300 Ω.

2 nswer, Key Homework 11 avid Mcntyre 2 For the voltage V from Part 1 and the resistance R wet, = V min R wet = 100 V ( ) 1000 m 5300 Ω 1 = m. 004 (part 3 of 3) 0 points What would be the minimum voltage that would produce a current that could be felt when the skin is wet? orrect answer: 5.3 V. Given : min = 1 m, and R wet = 5300 Ω. V 1 = min R wet ( ) 1 = (1 m) (5300 Ω) 1000 m = 5.3 V. 005 (part 1 of 4) 0 points f the current carried by a metallic conductor is doubled, (a) What happens to the charge carrier density? ssume that the temperature of the metallic conductor remains constant. 1. t quadruples. 2. t is unchanged. correct 3. t is quartered. 4. t is halved. 5. t doubles. asic oncept: J = σ = n q v d v d = q m τ. Solution: The charge carrier density n is unaffected. This is simply a property of the material, and is related to the mass density and the number of valence electrons available per atom. 006 (part 2 of 4) 0 points (b) What happens to the current density? 1. t doubles. correct 2. t is unchanged. 3. t is quartered. 4. t quadruples. 5. t is halved. The current density J = only depends on the current and the cross-sectional area of the conductor, so if doubles and remains the same, J must also double: J = 2 = 2 = 2 J. 007 (part 3 of 4) 0 points (c) What happens to the electron drift velocity? 1. t is unchanged. 2. t is halved. 3. t is quartered. 4. t quadruples. 5. t doubles. correct The electron drift velocity v d is given by v d = n q, where q is the charge of an electron. So if doubles, v d must also double: v d = 2 n q = 2 n q = 2v d.

3 nswer, Key Homework 11 avid Mcntyre (part 4 of 4) 0 points (d) What happens to the average time between collisions? 1. t doubles. 2. t is halved. 3. t is quartered. 4. t is unchanged. correct 5. t quadruples. The average time τ between collisions is given by τ = v d m q, where m is the mass of an electron and is the applied electric field (determined by Ohm s Law: J = σ ). Substituting for, τ = v d m σ q J. Since v d and J are each multiplied by a factor of two, the factors of two cancel (as long as σ does not change due to heating). ll the other variables remain the same (as long as σ does not change due to heating). Therefore τ remains unchanged. 009 (part 1 of 2) 0 points The circuit below shows four identical bulbs connected to an ideal battery, which has negligible internal resistance.

With the switch open, the total resistance of the circuit is 3 R, so = = = V 3 R = 0.33V R This is to be compared with the case that the switch is closed, where from previous part, = = 0.4 V R and = 0.2 V R. So for the present case, and decrease and increases. 011 (part 1 of 4) 0 points battery has an emf of 12 V and an internal resistance of 0.13 Ω. ts terminals are connected to a load resistance of 2 Ω. Find the current in the circuit. orrect answer: Given : = 12 V, R = 2 Ω, and r = 0.13 Ω. The total resistance is R + r, so = R + r 12 V = 2 Ω Ω = (part 2 of 4) 0 points alculate the terminal voltage of the battery. orrect answer: V. The terminal voltage V of the battery is equal to V r = r = 12 V ( ) (0.13 Ω) = V. 013 (part 3 of 4) 0 points Find the power dissipated in the load resistor. orrect answer: W.

We can see that the bulbs in circuit 2 are more than 4 times brighter than the bulbs in circuit (part 2 of 2) 0 points f one of the bulbs in circuit 2 is unscrewed and removed from its socket, the remaining 3 bulbs 1. go out. circuit 1 2. are unaffected. correct 3. become brighter. 4. become dimmer. circuit 2 ompared to the individual bulbs in circuit 1, the individual bulbs in circuit 2 are 1. the same brightness as bright. 3. less than 1 4 as bright times brighter. 5. more than 4 times brighter. correct Solution: n circuit 1, the voltage across each light bulb is V = R = 4 R R = 4, so the power of each bulb in circuit 1 is P 1 = V 2 R = 2 16 R. n circuit 2, the voltage across each bulb is identical; namely. Hence the power of each bulb in circuit 2 is P 2 = 2 R = 1 16 P 1. Since the bulbs are parallel, after one of the bulbs is unscrewed, the voltage across each remaining bulb is unchanged, and the brightness is unaffected. 020 (part 1 of 3) 0 points Hint: pply the Kirchhoff s law to the loop.

R = 3 2 r R = 5 3 r y inspection, the following circuit is equivalent to the original circuit R Here R 2 R 4 R = 2 R 2 = 2 2 r2 r + 2 r = 4 3 r 023 (part 1 of 3) 0 points onsider a cubic resistor network shown, where all the resistors are the same. ach resistor has a resistance r. current comes into the network at. The same current leaves the network at asic oncept: Symmetry in circuits. Solution: Go through the network systematically from to. The current enters at. Since the network is completely symmetric, there can be no difference in resistance for the three possible paths the current can split into at. Thus, each of the three must carry identical current, and they must add up to (since no current is lost at the junction): = (part 2 of 3) 0 points etermine, i.e. the current between points and

9 nswer, Key Homework 11 avid Mcntyre correct 7. 3 Now we are at. The current coming in from has two possible choices of path, and again there is complete symmetry between the two.

We can step through the path to find the potential V between and. Kirchoff s Laws tell us that each time we cross a resistor (moving with the current) we drop a potential V = R. Therefore V V = r + r + r Now note that = by symmetry, so ( V V = V = r ) = r Now V = R, so R = 5 6 r 026 (part 1 of 2) 0 points Two identical light bulbs and are connected in series to a constant voltage source.

Hint: From symmetry, one expects i 1 =. Find the current i. orrect answer: Given : 1 = 2 = = 9 V, r 1 = r 2 = 2.4 Ω, and R = 4.1 Ω. We are given that 1 = 2 and r 1 = r 2. This implies that i 1 =. (Why? Look at the loops

11 nswer, Key Homework 11 avid Mcntyre 11 F and F and see if there are any similarities.) Hence the junction rule yields i 1 + = 2 = i =. Substituting this into the loop equation F, Solving for i yields 2 i R r 2 = 0 i = 2 R + r V = 4.1 Ω Ω 2 = (part 1 of 3) 0 points onsider the circuit shown below, the capacitor is initially uncharged.

Note: There is no current flowing through R 2, so the entire potential drop, V o, is across the resistor. From Ohm s law, = V o. 032 (part 2 of 3) 0 points Leave the switch at position a for a long time, then move the switch from a to b.
