Physics 321, Autumn Quarter 2015 Electrodynamics: Homework Assignment 10 (a) Turn in all problems and clearly note all constants and assumptions you use. (1-point penalty each otherwise) (b) Use 8 ½ x 11 paper & staple (1-point penalty each otherwise) Due 9:30 am Thursday December 10 1. Consider a capacitor consisting of an inner conducting cylinder of radius R 1 and an outer conducting cylinder of radius R 2 . The length of the capacitor is L . The region between the conductors consists of a dielectric with permittivity ε . The plates are charged to ± Q . Assuming no fringing fields. (a) Find the E and D fields everywhere. (b) Find the capacitance. (c) Now connect a constant voltage source V across the terminals of the capacitor. Then you displace the dielectric a very slight distance along the axial direction. Find the magnitude of the force and the direction of the force needed to hold the dielectric in this displaced position. 2. Consider a spherical capacitor of inner radius

    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.
