Physics 321, Autumn Quarter 2015 Electrodynamics: Homework Assignment 6 (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 November 12 1. Challenge problem. Consider the capacitor shown below. Each plate has length L and width W . The capacitor plates are not quite parallel. The gap is d on one side and d + δ d on the other. Ignoring fringing fields, find the electrostatic potential between the plates. Hint: this problem has multiple symmetries: how can these symmetries be applied to Laplace’s equation? |.- L_-__-- i d +:'-{

2. Consider two semi-infinite grounded planes joining at an angle π /3 as shown below. A charge + Q is not necessarily along the mid-plane. Make a careful sketch showing the size and positions of charges for the corresponding image-charge problem. 3. Consider a lightning cloud drifting overhead. At the earth’s surface

    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.
