For the next Astronomy test on March 18, 2015[edit]

Questions not on this list will be on the next astronomy test

March 18 lab portion[edit]

1 If an electron's charge equals 2 in some units, and if r is the number of electrons per second, then the the current, I, equals

I=2r
I=(1/2)r
I=4r
I=r

2 If an electron's charge equals 1/2 in some units, and if r is the number of electrons per second, then the the current, I, equals

I=(1/2)r
I=2r
I=4r
I=r

3 In the gravitational analogy to electrostatics and electricity, what is the analog to charge? (Here, m is mass, h is height, and g is gravitational acceleration. Also, the formula for gravitational potential energy is mgh)

m
mg
mgh
gh

4 If the breakdown field for air is typically 60kv/inch (i.e. 60,000 volts per inch). What does that say about the voltage associated with a two inch spark?

120 kV
60 kV
30 kV
240 kV

5 If the breakdown field for air is typically 60kv/inch (i.e. 60,000 volts per inch). What does that say about the electric field associated with a two inch spark?
