Two resistors, A and B, are connected in parallel across a 6.0V battery. The current through B is found to be 2.0 A. When the two resistos are connected in series to the 6.0 V battery,a voltmeter connected across the resistor A measures a voltage of4.0 V. Find the resistances of A and B.
A water pump that consumes 2 kW of electric power when operating is claimed to take in water from a lake and pump it to a pool whose free surface is 30 m above the free surface of the lake at a rate of 50 L/s. Determine if this claim is reasonable.
(a) Determine the electric field E at the origin O in Figure due to the two charges at A and B. (Type your answer using k for proportionality constant, Q for charge and L for the length l.)
(b) Repeat, but let the charge at B be reversed in sign.
A person who starting from rest at the top of a cliff swings down at the end of a rope,releases it, and falls into the water below. There are two paths bywhich the person can enter the water. Suppose he enters the waterat a speed of 13 m/s via path 1. How fast is he moving on path 2 when he releases the rope at a height of 5.20 m above the water? Ignore the effects of air resistance.
