Tilt Table

A tilt table test is used to verify if a patient has low pressure drops associated with syncope. The heart, of a horizontal patient, pumps blood at a mean arterial pressure of 90 mmHg (12 kPa). The patient faints as soon as the tilt table goes vertical, this means the blood acceleration equal the gravitational acceleration. If the heart rate does not increase to compensate for the change in angle, at what angle would the blood be pumping one half its horizontal pressure.

Magnitude of the Force

Consider the following diagram which reveals a positive test charge that is located between two charged spheres, X and Y. Sphere X has a charge of +3Q and is located 0.6 meters from the test charge. Sphere Y has a charge of -3Q and is located 0.3 meters from the test charge.

If the magnitude of the force on the test charge due to sphere X is F, what is the magnitude of the force on the test charge due to sphere Y?

Electric Charge

Three metal spheres X, Y and Z, are identical in size but carry differing electric charges of –Q, +2Q and -3Q, respectively. The first metal sphere X is brought into contact only with the sphere Y, and then X is brought into contact only with sphere Z. After X makes contact with spheres Y and Z, in the order described, the charge on sphere X is most consistent with which of the following?
