Problem 28P

One particle, of charge q1, is held at rest at the origin. Another particle, of charge q2, approaches along the x axis, in hyperbolic motion:

it reaches the closest point, b, at time t = 0, and then returns out to infinity.

(a) What is the force F2 on q2 (due to q1) at time t?

(b) What total impulse is delivered to q2 by q1?

(c) What is the force F1 on q1 (due to q2) at time t?

(d) What total impulse is delivered to q1 by q2? [Hint: It might help to review Prob. 10.17 before doing this integral. Answer: I2 = −I1 = q1q2/4 ϵ0bc]
