When the wheel rotates once, it has a travelled a distance equal to the circumference of the wheel. Using the circumference formula in terms of diameter dd, this distance is:
\(\displaystyle{C}=π{d}=π{\left({27}\right)}≈{84.8}\) inches

Assume that a ball of charged particles has a uniformly distributednegative charge density except for a narrow radial tunnel throughits center, from the surface on one side to the surface on the opposite side. Also assume that we can position a proton any where along the tunnel or outside the ball. Let \(\displaystyle{F}_{{R}}\) be the magnitude of the electrostatic force on the proton when it islocated at the ball's surface, at radius R. As a multiple ofR, how far from the surface is there a point where the forcemagnitude is 0.44FR if we move the proton(a) away from the ball and (b) into the tunnel?
