PHYS208 Fundamentals of Physics II

Answer for Ch. 33, 11E

0.70 ms

Answer for Ch. 33, 18P

a) linear frequency is 275 Hz; angular frequency is 1730 rad/sec.

b) Current maximum is 365 mA.

Answer for Ch. 33, 21P

a) q = Q/sqrt(3)

b) t = 0.152 T

Answer for Ch. 33, 24P

a) fmax / fmin = 6.0

b) C = 36 pF in parallel; L = 0.22 mH.
(Note: if you get 8.6 mH you have forgotten to convert linear frequency to angular frequency!)

Answer for Ch. 33, 25P

a) Utot = 1.98 microJ

b) qmax = 5.56 microC

c) imax = 12.6 mA

d) phase angle is -46.9 degrees

Why negative? We found that the cosine of the phase angle should be 0.68; thus the phase angle may be +/- 46.9 degrees. The sign is chosen depending on whether the capacitor is charging or discharging. To decide, look at the time derivative of the charge at t=0, which is proportional to the negative of the sine of the phase angle. For a charging capacitor, this derivative should be positive; thus the choice of -46.9 degrees.

e) phase angle is +46.9 degrees
