    1. A point charge q produces an electric field of magnitude 90.5 N/C at a distance of 1.68 m. If the field is directed towards the charge, what is the value of q?

    2. When the plates of a radio capacitor are charged with 0.18 mC, the potential between them is 9.0 V. What is the capacitance?

    3. A pair of parallel plates is separated by 1.0 mm of air. If the plates are charged to a potential difference of 75 V, what is the electric field between the plates?

    4. A 40 W electric lamp draws a current of 0.33 A when operated with a potential difference of 120 V. What is the resistance of the lamp?

    5. An 1100 W iron, 1200 W frying pan, and a lamp are all connected to a 120 V household circuit fuse for 20 A. What is the maximum wattage lamp that can be used simultaneously with the iron and the frying pan?

    E = 9*10^9*q/r^2
    => 9*10^9*q/1.68^2 = 90.5
    => q = 2.84*10^(-8) C
    Because, field is directed towards the charge, therefore, charge should be ...
