Resistors - Finding the Current

Hi. Can someone please help me with the following problem? I'll try to draw the circuit (with battery and 4 resistors), but I don't know if all the spacing will come out right. The "///" are resistors. Basically, it's a circuit with a 15-V battery and 4 resistors. First you hit R1, which = 11 ohms. Then there are two paths

RL Circuit: Calculating Power

Question: An ac generator with a frequency of 1.00 kHz and an rms voltage of 24 V is connected in series with a 2000 ohm resistor and a 0.365 H inductor. (a) What is the power factor for this circuit? (b) What is the average power consumed by this circuit?"

Average Power fun

Scott, riding for the Mercury team, won the 2002 Mt. Rushmore Hill Climb bicycle race with a winning time of 1 hour 50 minutes 20 seconds. The race is 28 miles in length with a total altitude gain of 7000ft. Scott weighs in at 130 lbs and his hill climbing bike weighs 17 lbs. The total weight of his water bottles, shoes, clot

Calculating resultant force and change in potential energy

The speed of a 4.0kg object is given by (2t) m/s, where t is in seconds. At what rate is the resultant force on this object doing work at t = 1 second? Answers: a) 48 W b) 40 W c) 56 W d) 16 W A 10kg object is initially at the top of a rise, at point A. It then moves down to point B. Choose point B to be your zero leve

Wave properties of particles

The resolving power of a microscope is proportional to the wavelength used. A resolution of approximately 1.0 x 10-11 m (0.01 nm) would be required in order to "see" an atom. (a) If electrons were used (electron microscope), what minimum kinetic energy would be required for the electrons? (b) If phtons were used, what minimum p

Conducting Rod

A conducting rod of length l moves on two horizontal, frictionless rails, as shown in the attached file 'Figure P31.20'. If a constant force of 1.00 N moves the bar at 2.00 m/s through a magnetic field B that is directed into the page, (a) What is the current through the resistor R? (b) What is the rate at which energy is d

Question: A power line is 3.5m off the ground and is carrying 75 amps. A man standing under the power line is holding a compass 1.25m off the ground. 1) How large is the magnetic field produced on the compass by the power line? 2) If the power line runs east and west, how does its magnetic field affect the direction in whi

Raising a yacht from the seabed by attaching filled air bags to it

A large yacht has a mass of 305 tonnes. The yacht sinks and is lying on the sea bed at a depth of 40m. It is estimated that the volume of teh yacht is such that it displaces 0.8m3 of water when it is totally submerged under water. A salvage team decides to raise the yacht to the surface by fixing large bags to the yacht and

Electromagnetic Induction of Wires

Imagine in a remote area of the countryside a 70-kV, 60-Hz power line. A shifty local resident has erected a large open loop just below the line with the intention of drawing power. Is this possible and, if so, how would it be transferred? Where would the energy stolen come from? Would anyone be able to detect the loss? Might it

capacitor acts as an open circuit

Multiple choice: 1. An ideal source of emf is connected in series with a resistor in closed loop, and a current or 0.e50 A circulates. An additional 6.0-Ohm resistor is added in series, and the current drops to 0.30 A. The original resistance was: (a) 9.0 Ohm (b) 6.0 Ohm (c) 15 Ohm (d) 3.0 Ohm (e) none of these. Explain your ch
