Figure shows a solid hemisphere with a charge of 5nC  distributed uniformly throughout its volume. The hemisphere lies on a plane and point P is located on the plane, along a radial line from the centre of curvature at distance 15cm. The electric potential at point P (in volts) due to the hemisphere, is___.


By argument of symmetry, it will be half of the potential produced by the full sphere

∵ – Charge on hemisphere = Q, so charge on sphere = 2Q

The correct answer is: 300

A simple pendulum with a bob of mass m = 1kg, charge q = 5μC and string length l = 1m is given a horizontal velocity u in a uniform electric field E = 2 × 106 V/m  at its bottom most point A, as shown in figure. It is given that the speed u is such that the particle leaves the circle at point C. Find the speed u
(Take g = 10m/s2


From work-energy theorem,

Substituting the values, we get 

Further, at C tension in the string is zero

or  v2 = 3.66 ......(ii)
From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get

u = 6m/s
The correct answer is: 6

A position charge +Q is fixed at a point A. Another positively charged. particle of mass m and charge +q is projected from a point B with velocity u as shown in the figure. The point B is large distance from A and at distance d from the line AC. The initial velocity is parallel to the line AC. The point C is at very large distance from A. Find the minimum distance (in meter) of +q from +Q during the motion.



The path of the particle will be as shown in the figure. At the point of minimum distance (D) the velocity of the particle will be to its position vector w.r.t +Q.


∵ Torque on q about Q is zero hence angular momentum about Q will be conserved
⇒  mvrmin = mud      ........(2)  
by (2) in (1)

∵   distance cannot be negative 
The correct answer is: 1

A solid sphere of radius R has a cavity of radius R/2 The solid part has a uniform charge density ρ and cavity has no charge. The electric potential at point A is then value of x is


Assume a solid sphere without cavity.

Potential at A due to this solid sphere

Electric field at C due to this solid sphere 

Now consider the cavity filled with negative charge

Now net values for the solid sphere with the cavity can be given by superposition of the above two cases
