Problem 5.1

Two positively charged spheres, each with a charge of \(2.0 \times 10^{-5} \mathrm{C}\), a mass of 1.0 kg, and separated by a distance of 1.0 cm, are held in place on a frictionless track.

(a) What is the electrostatic potential energy of this system?

(b) If the spheres are released, will they move toward or away from each other?

(c) What speed will each sphere attain as the distance between the spheres approaches infinity? [Section 5.1]

Organic Chemistry Exam 1 (Professor Anne Gordon) • Monday’s Notes • SI sessions with Will Cordell (TR 5:30-7 in Mell 3550b) • What is Organic Chemistry  Chem was originally defined as the chem “of life”  1780- the compound Urea was isolated by Roulle from urine  1828- Whöler synthesizes urea from 2 “inorganic” compounds • Wednesday’s Notes  Ch.1: Electronic Structure and Bonding • In the mid 1800’s it was first suggested that substances are defined by a specific arrangement of atoms • Isomers or constitutional isomers have the same atoms but a different arrangement • • • Electron shells is the set or orbitals with the same value of N (neutrons) • Ex. (3s, 3p, 3d are subshells of 3) • The electrons in the outermost occupied shell are valence electrons • Ground state electron configuration (lowest energy arrangement) of an atom lists orbitals occupied by its electrons • Noble gases configuration: He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, and Ra - The “Noble” Gases are inert elements as their outer electron shells are filled making them very stable • Atoms tend to react in ways that enable them to achieve more - stable outer shell of 8e . This is called the Octet Rule • If a
