A.V. Manohar Ph225A: General Relativity Problem Set 2 1. You are given a vector field ( A x , A y , A z ) in Cartesian coordinates. Compute ( A r , A θ , A φ ) and ( A r , A θ , A φ ) in spherical polar coordinates. 2. Convert the one-form ω = x dy - y dx to polar coordinates. Compute d ω in both coordinate systems, and verify that the polar coordinate result is the same as converting the Cartesian d ω . 3. Given a function f = r cos θ , compute df and ddf. 4. Given a one-form vector potential A = A μ dx

Unformatted text preview: A = A μ dx μ , compute F = dA and show that its components are the electric magnetic felds. Compute d± (without assuming F = dA), and show that d± = 0 are the source-Free Maxwell equations. 5. Let ω = sin θ d φ . VeriFy Stokes’ theorem i M d ω = i ∂ M ω where M is the Northern hemisphere oF a unit sphere. Repeat For ω = cos θ d φ . Why does Stokes’ theorem Fail in this case? 1...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
