Please mark your answers to the multiple choice questions and put the final number with correct
units for the questions which require calculations. For each question involving calculations, the
multiple choice part weights 5 points; correct number 9 points; correct units 1 point. Use scratch
paper for your calculations but don’t submit it. Submit only this file with your answers.

2. (15 points) Three charges are placed along axis x with coordinates x = 0 m, x= 0.4 m, x = 1.0 m
(see figure below). If q = 5nC find the direction and magnitude of the electric field at the
following points:
a) x = - 0.1 m; -4251.57 N/C towards left.

4.(15 points) Determine the equivalent capacitance of the combination shown below if C = 12 F.
Now our goal is to store the maximum possible energy using these capacitors connected to a
given voltage V. To achieve this goal we have to:
A. Connect all capacitors in parallel;
B. Connect all capacitors in series.
