ECE 329 Homework 9 Due: Tue, March 25, 2008, 5PM 1. Consider a simplified model of a vacuum diode consisting of a cathode in the x = 0 plane and an anode in the x = d plane, where the anode is held to a constant potential V 0 = 1 V relative to the cathode. If the potential distribution in the region 0 < x < d is given by V = V 0 ( x/d ) 4 / 3 , find the following: (a) E at x = d/ 2 , (b) volumetric free-charge density ρ at x = d/ 4 , and (c) the surface charge ρ s on the anode. Hint: you make use of the relations E = - dV dx ˆ x , · o E = ρ , and ˆ n · ( D 1 - D 2 ) = ρ s , treating the interior of the vacuum diode as free-space containing a free charge carrier density of ρ . 2. Consider two infinite, plane parallel, perfectly conducting plates at

### 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.
