Problem with lvl 4 physics problem 4

Well it's resolved, so I'm removing this in the interests of fairness

Sort by:

The electron typo was fixed, thanks for pointing it out. The answer is actually an integer - we were trying to give a hint/make it a little easier. However, I've changed it to be a float since it apparently was confusing some people which was not our intention. Staff · 4 years, 6 months ago

lambda e / (2 pi epsilon) has an absolute value of 2.877 x 10^-9 J, i find it odd that the answer (in J) should be an integer on the interval [0, 999]. · 4 years, 6 months ago

we're checking the numbers again. I'll post here when that's done. Staff · 4 years, 6 months ago

Okay, problem has been slightly modified in the distance from the wire. Take a look again. Staff · 4 years, 6 months ago

No wonder. Well since I submitted my solution (and 2 corrections to boot), I hope this will be taken into account (: · 4 years, 6 months ago
