    FCK!!!! Brain lock on physics question

    Workin on some physics hw for the past couple hours and my brain is ready to take a sh.it.....

    A nonconductor has an internal electric field that varies radially
    E = 5.2 * (V/m^4) * r^3 * (r_vector)

    a) Find the E force on an electron at r = .25m

    b) Find the change in C from r = 0 to r = .24

    c) The electron is released from rest at r = .25m, Find the speed of the electron at r = 0

    whats V? I'm assuming m is distance in meters?

    And where the F is C in there? lol

    Are you supposed to find it in terms of V cuz i think youve got too many unknowns in one equation... you dont know E and you dont know V

    This is why im stumped.... I dont know m either.

    I think this is supposed to represent something like an extension cord, or power cord, etc... where m is the length of the extension cord, r is the radius, V is the voltage going through cord, etc. That is all I can think of. Im not sure how to manipulate this formula though to find out E for the first part. I emailed the teacher, hopefully he gets back to me letting me know he forgot to add another part to the question.

    If i knew there was going to be this much physics involved in getting a BA in engineering I woulda went into MIS or something, lol.

    LoL, I hope you are joking about thinking engineering wasn't mostly physics. You should've done what I did to avoid the physics, become a synthetic organic chemist. The toughest math I do is simple arithmetic.

    Now that i think about it m is usually mass... not meters or length

    Hey some of us are learning to be engineers trying to get real jobs, not get paid to sit around and eat donuts all day!

    Just incase anyone was dying to figure this out, lol....
    It ended up being easy as FCK and I didnt get it till i tried to put the r in the equation.... since r is in meters, the bottom of the equation is m^3... cancel that with the m^4 on top and you are left with E in terms of V/m... plug that value into the equation F(e_field) = qE and theres the answer to part A. The rest is all easy after that.
