Do NOT write on these sheets or take them with you…. The next class needs them too! PHYS-1200 PHYSICS II SPRING 2005 Class 10 Activity: Displacement Current 1. The capacitor in the picture shown below is charging. a) What is the direction of the electric field between the plates of the capacitor? Is the electric field constant, decreasing or increasing? b) Is there a displacement current? Why or why not? c) If there is a displacement current what is its direction? d) What is the direction of the magnetic field associated with the displacement current at point P in the diagram? 2. Now, suppose the capacitor in the picture shown above is fully charged. a) What is the direction of the electric field between the plates of the capacitor? b) Is the electric field constant, decreasing or increasing? c) Is there a displacement current? Why or why not? d) If there is a displacement current what is its direction? e)
