106.

Three $Na+Na+$ and three $Cl−Cl−$ ions are placed alternately and equally spaced around a circle of radius 50 nm. Find the electrostatic energy stored.

107.

Look up (presumably online, or by dismantling an old device and making measurements) the magnitude of the potential deflection plates (and the space between them) in an ink jet printer. Then look up the speed with which the ink comes out the nozzle. Can you calculate the typical mass of an ink drop?

108.

Use the electric field of a finite sphere with constant volume charge density to calculate the electric potential, throughout space. Then check your results by calculating the electric field from the potential.

109.

Calculate the electric field of a dipole throughout space from the potential.
