Q.13. A circular ring of radius R with uniform positive charge density λ per unit length is located in the y-z plane with its centre at the origin O. A particle of mass m and positive charge q is projected from the point P (R√ 3,0,0) on the positive x-axis directly towards O, with an initial speed v.

(ii) the amount of electrostatic energy stored in the system before and after the completion of the circuit.

Ans. (i) 90 × 10–6 C, 210 × 10–6 C, 150 × 10–6 C  
(ii) 4.74 × 10–2 J, 1.8 × 10–2 J

Solution. (i) KEY CONCEPT : Use charge conservation to solve this problem.

INITIALLY :

Charge on capacitor A 

qA = 3  × 10–6 × 100 = 3 × 10–4C

Subjective Questions of Electrostatics (Part -2), Past year Questions JEE Advance, Class 12, Physics JEE Notes | EduRev

Charge on capacitor B 

qB = 2  × 10–6 × 180 = 3.6 × 10–4C

FINALLY :

Let the charge on capacitor A, C and B be q1, q2 and q3 respectively.

By charge conservation.

The sum of charge on +ve plate of capacitor A and C should be equal to qA

∴ q1 + q2 = 3 × 10–4C... (i)  

Subjective Questions of Electrostatics (Part -2), Past year Questions JEE Advance, Class 12, Physics JEE Notes | EduRev

Similarly the sum of charge on –ve plates of capacitor C and B will be equal to qB 

∴ – q2 – q3 = – 3.6 × 10–4

⇒ q2 + q3 = 3.6 × 10–4C ... (ii) 

Applying  Kirchoff's law in the closed loop, we get
