2. Two large parallel sheets of charge are separated by a distance d , small compared to the size of the sheets. The distance d is small enough that the sheets can be treated as if they were infinite in extent. Where do you expect the E field to point at the position A? • It should point to the left. • It should be essentially 0. • It should point to the right. A C B NEXUS/Physics Clicker Questions

10. Cap #1 is charged by connecting it to a battery. Cap #2 is not charged.C#1 is disconnected from the battery and connected to C#2. How does the magnitude of the E field in C#1 change? • Stays the same • Bigger by ~X2 • Bigger but not by ~X2 • Smaller by ~X2 • Smaller but not by ~X2 • Can’t tell NEXUS/Physics Clicker Questions

11. Three capacitors 1, 2, 3 are connected to identical batteries so they each have the same ΔV. Their plate areas and separations are as follows: A2 = 2 A1 = 2 A3; d1 = d2 = 2d3.How do the E fields inside them rank? • E2= E3> E1 • E3> E1= E2 • E2> E1> E3 • E2> E1= E3 • E1= E2> E3 • E1= E2= E3 • Other NEXUS/Physics Clicker Questions
