    Calculating the divergence of electric field using the definition of divergence.

    If I try to calculate the divergence of electric field created by a point charge at the origin then I shall do something like this: \mathbf{E}= \frac{1} {4\pi\epsilon_0} \frac{q}{r^2} \hat r \mathbf{\nabla} \cdot \mathbf{E} = \frac{1}{r^2} ~ \frac{\partial (r^2E_r)}{\partial r} +...

    Electric fields

    An electron moving to the right at 0.01c enters a uniform electric field. If the electron is to be brought to rest in a space of 4.0 cm, what is the direction and strength of the electric field? I've tried solving using initial energy, the resulting field strength seamed very small, any...

    Troublesome problem with finding the electric current

    In this problem we have A wire with resistance per unit length of 32 Ω/m that is bent at a right angle. The second straight fragment of the same wire (The blue one) moves at the top of the first one at a speed of v = 4 m/s. The whole system is located in a magnetic field with an induction of B =...

    Question about relationship between Acceleration and Electric Potential

    Hi everyone. Im a Engineering student and i having doubts about this question: "What is the acceleration vector a(x,y,z) of a particle of mass m0 and charge q0 when there is a Potential vector V(x,y,z) = c0 x3 c1 + x-5 y5 z4 where 'c0' and 'c1' are constants." Well I started with the...

    Electric Field for the circular path of positively charged particle

    Here is picture. Answers is A. https://ibb.co/m6Bpb2V My attempt was that I thought if i were to place a positive test charge then it would go from top to bottom if there was a positive charge in the center it was avoiding and a positively charged particle at the top, but an...

    Finding the electric field along the line between charges

    Hey So I've been asked this question as part of my physics assignment (Its an advanced section question so significantly harder than the normal questions) and I've been stuck, my intuition tells me there should be two zero points, and initially I found a formula that only found one, however...

    Help electrostatics - electric field(beginner level)

    The figure below shows three electric charges q1, q2 and q3 that are located at distances of r1= 2 cm, r2= 2cm and r3= 1cm from the origin of the coordinate system, as shown in the figure. Knowing that θ1 = θ2 = θ3 = 30º, q1=1mC,q2=3mC and q3=-2mC. Consider: 1/4πξº = 9x10 ^ 9 Nm² / C², and...

    Direction of Electric Field lines

    Hello, I understand how to get the magnitude for the electric field in this problem. My only issue is that I cannot figure out why the i coordinate is -sin while the j coordinate is -cos. I had the problem entirely right except I had cos in the i spot and sin in the j spot. I'm sure this is a...

    Electric field strength between two rings:

    Hi to everyone! I'm here to ask how could you resolve this problem about electric fields: two charges q1= 1.88*10^-8 and q2=-7.54*10^-8 are evenly distributed on two rings with the same radius R=30 cm, positioned above two parallel planes, far each other d=3mm. We have to calculate the strength...

    Net Electric Fields

    I keep getting this problem wrong- Two charges, q1 = −3.00 mC and q2 = 4.50 mC, are located at −2.00 cm and 3.00 cm on the x axis, respectively. What are the magnitude and direction of the resulting field at (a) x = −3.00 cm? (b) x = 0 cm? (c) x = 5.00 cm? My physics book doesn't bother...
