Using the symmetry of the arrangement, calculate the magnitude of the electric field in N/C at the center of the square given that qa = 96–1.00 PC and qc = 9d = +3.02 pCq. Assume that the square is 5 mon a side. qa ab 0 Oda 9c
Electric field is given by:
E = kq/r^2
direction of E will be towards -ve charge and away from +vecharge
Since qa is -ve, Electric field will be towards the charge inNorth of West direction
Since qb is -ve, Electric field will be towards the charge inNorth of East direction
Since qc is +ve, Electric field will be away from charge inNorth of east direction
Since qd is +ve, Electric field will be away from the charge inNorth of west direction
So, Now using above figure and given values we can see that fromsymmetry
|Ea| = |Eb| and |Ec| = |Ed|
E_net = 2*|Ea|*sin 45 deg + 2*|Ec|*sin 45 deg
E_net = (sqrt 2)*(|Ea| + |Ec|)
E_net = (sqrt 2)*(k*|qa|/ra^2 + k*|qc|/rc^2)
ra = rc = r = sqrt (a^2 + a^2)/2 = a/sqrt (2) = 5/sqrt 2
where a = side of square = 5 m
r^2 = (5/sqrt 2)^2 = 12.5
E_net = (sqrt 2)*(k/r^2)*(|qa| + |qc|)
Using given values:
E_net = (sqrt 2)*(9*10^9/12.5)*(1.00*10^-6 + 3.02*10^-6)
E_net = 4093.3 N/C = 4.09*10^3 N/C
Let me know if you've any query.
