You are tinkering with capacitors, and decide to add a insulator to the mix. How would that change the stored energy, considering the charge stays constant?
Solution:
Having a insulator influences the electrons to decrease the electric field. This would in turn cause a decrease in potential difference. Since potential difference directly corresponds to stored energy, this will decrease as well.
Why the other choices are wrong:
Insulators work by stopping the flow of energy through electric polarization.

A negatively charged sphere is moved near two neutral spheres (W and X). Then, we put sphere X near an electroscope (Y). After, we touch sphere W to another electroscope (Z). What are the charge orientations of electroscopes Y and Z, respectively?
Solution:
The negatively charged sphere will make spheres W and X positive through induction. This would then make electroscopes Y and Z positive.
Why the other choices are wrong:
Remember the three ways charges can take place. Also, it doesn’t matter if the sphere is close or touching the electroscope.

You go to buy a TV from BestBuy; you push a cart with a force of 30 N across a distance of 40 meters to your car on a hill with an angle of 60. What is the work (J) done on the cart?
Solution:
Work = F*d*cosθ
Work = (30N)(40m)cos(60)
Work = 1200(0.5) = 600 J
Why the other choices are wrong:
You used either the wrong angle or wrong trig function

Work = F*d*cosθ
Work = (30N)(40m)cos(60)

A hydraulic lift has amazing mechanical advantage. Just a little force on one end can lift insanely heavy objects. Pascal’s principle explains this; how is this possible?
Solution:
Pascal’s principle states that pressure is transmitted undiminished in an enclosed static fluid. This means that any externally applied pressure is transmitted to all parts of the enclosed fluid, making possible a large multiplication of force.
Why the other choices are wrong:
A) The material does not matter
B) You body isn’t the aspect creating the large mechanical advantage
D) Gravity doesn’t play the leading role
E) It is made of few parts, and it’s the pressure causing the multiplier, not the parts

Using the table below, determine the average acceleration (m/s^{2})
Time (s)  Velocity (m/s) 
0  0 
5  15 
15  45 
35  105 
70  210 
Solution:
a = Δv/t
a = (210 – 0)/(700)
a = 3 m/s^{2}
Why the other choices are wrong:
B, C, D.) You divided by the wrong points; you need to keep them consistent

Which law deals with any change in the magnetic environment of a coil of wire that causes a voltage to be induced in the coil?
Solution:
Voltage generated = NΔ(BA)/Δt
Why the other choices are wrong:
A) Induced current flows in the direction that opposes the change that created it
B) For any closed loop, sum of elements times magnetic field equals permeability times electric current
C) Relates the distribution of electric charge to the resulting electric field
D.) Square inverse relationship between charge and distance

Voltage generated = NΔ(BA)/Δt

What is the speed (km/s) of a ray of light in a medium which has a refractive index of 10?
Solution:
Speed of light is 3 x 10^{8} m/s or 300,000 km/s
Refractive index = speed of light/ speed in specific medium
10 = 300,000 /v
v = 30,000
Why the other choices are wrong:
The higher the RI, the slower the speed, so E) doesn’t make sense. The rest are the wrong multiplier.

You decide to take a break from all this physics and head to the amusement park and get on your favorite roller coaster. As the roller coaster climbs to the top and is just about to drop down, you get a sense of dread and realize that physics has not left you. If the cart weighs 100 kg and goes at 14 m/s over the top of a loop with a radius of 49 m, use Newton’s second law to find the net force acting on you. Assume the acceleration of gravity is 10 m/s
Solution:
F_{gravity} = m * g
F_{gravity} = 100 kg * 10 m/s
F_{gravity} = 1000 N
F_{app}:
a = v^{2}/R
= (15 m/s)^{2}/(49 m)
= 4 N
F_{app} = ma
F_{app} = 100kg * 4 N
F_{app} = 400 N
F_{net} = F_{gravity} + F_{app}
F_{net} = 1000N + 400N = 1400N
Why the other choices are wrong:
There are two components to finding the net force in this example. If you picked A, you only considered gravity. For the other wrong choices, you didn’t use the formula a = v^{2}/R correctly.

The k constant for a particular spring is 54 N/m with a 6 kg weight attached to its end. If the weight is released 2 m from its equilibrium position, what is the maximum acceleration (m^{2}/s) of the mass?
Solution:
Acceleration in this case can be given by:
a = A(k/m)
a = 2(54/6)
a = 18
Why the other choices are wrong:
Another way to look at this is to realize that:
a = Aw^{2}
since w = √(k/m),
a =A(k/m)
