A slab of insulating material of uniform thickness d, lying between to along the x axis, extends infinitely in the y and z directions, as shown in the figure. The slab has a uniform charge density . The electric field is zero in the middle of the slab, at x=0. Which of the following statements is true of the electric field at the surface of one side of the slab?
Answer the following T/F questions based on the behavior of the circuit in the above Figure 5:
(1) A transient current flows for a short time after the RELAY is switched to either the N.O.("normally open") or N.C. ("normally closed") position.
(2)The transient currents that flow in this experiment decays exponentially to zero.
(3)The capacitor charge Q exponentially decays to zero when the RELAY is thrown to position N.O.
(4)When the current I is positive, the capacitor charge Q is decreasing.
(5)When the current I is positive, the measured VOLTAGE IN 2 will be negative.
(6)When the capacitor charge Q is positive, the measured VOLTAGE IN 1 is positive.
(7)The quantity t1/2=? ln 2 is called the half-life of an exponential decay, where ?=RC is the time constant in an RC circuit. The current in a discharging RC circuit drops by half whenever t increases by . For a circuit with R=2 k? and C=3 ?F, if the current is 6 am at t=5 ms, at what time (in ms) will the current be 3 mA?
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.

2) The current through a resistor is the same in circuits A and C.
3) The current through a resistor is the same in circuits A and B.
4) The voltage across a single resistor in circuit C is twice the voltage across a single resistor in circuit B.
5) The total power dissipated in circuit C is twice the total power dissipated in circuit B.
