Review of Vectors and Basics:

1. The vector from the origin to point A is given as (6,-2,-4), and the unit vector directed from the origin toward point B is (2,-2,1)/3. If points A and B are ten units apart, find the

coordinates of point B.

2. A vector filed is given as G =[25/(x 2 +y 2 )](x a x +y a y )

Find: (a) a unit vector in the

direction of G at the point P(3,4,-2); (b) the angle between G and a x at P.

3. Three vectors extending from the origin are given as R1 =(7,3,-2), R2 =(-2,7,-3), and R3 =(0,2,3). Find: (a) a unit vector perpendicular to both R1 and R2; (b) a unit vector perpendicular to the vectors R1-R2 and R2-R3; (c) the area of the triangle defined by R1 and R2; (d) the area of the triangle defined by the heads of R1, R2, and R3.

4. Express the vector D =(x 2 +y 2 ) -1 (x a x +y a y ) in cylindrical components and cylindrical variables.

5. A volume defined by the surface r=3, r=5, ϕ=100°, ϕ=130°, z=3, z=4.5 encloses a collection of charges. (a) Find the enclosed volume; (b) find the total area of the enclosed surface.

6. (a) Find the vector component of F= 20a x - 12a y + 10a z that is parallel to the vector G = 0.2a x + 0.4a y + 0.6a z ; (b) Find the vector component of F that is perpendicular to G. (c) Find the vector component of G that is perpendicular to F.

7. Let the volume charge density ρ = 5 e (-0.1r) (π - ϕ) (z 2 +10) -1 µC/m 3 in the region bounded by 0 < r < 10, - π< ϕ < π, and all z, and ρ =o elsewhere. (a) Determine the total charge present. (b) Calculate the charge within the region 0 < r < 4, - π/2< ϕ < π/2, -10 < z < 10.

8. The region in which 4 < r < 10, 0 < θ < 50°, and 0.9π< ϕ < 1.1π contains the volume charge density ρ =10(r-3)(r-5) sin(θ) sin(ϕ/4), and ρ =0 elsewhere. Find the charge within the region.

Review of Coulomb’s and Gauss’ laws:

1. Given the surface charge density, σ = 20 µC/m 2 , in the region r< 0.3 m, z=0 m, and is zero elsewhere, find the electric field E at: (a) P A (r =0, z =0.8); (b) P B (r =0, z= -0.8).

2. An infinite sheet carriers a uniform charge density 4ε 0 ρ (C/cm 2 ). field at every point above the sheet without using Gauss’ law.

Determine the electric

3. A volume charge density ρ = ρ 0 (1+4r) (ρ 0 is a constant) exists within a sphere of radius a. This charge distribution has a certain field at r>a. Determine that value of a point charge placed at the origin which will produce the same electric field at r>a.
