HW I Remedial homework. 1) Laplacians: calculate the Laplacian of the following functions. You can choose which coordinate system to use, but show your work clearly and why you chose such a system. As usual, r is the spherical radius, and ρ the cylindrical radius f ( x, y, z ) = 1 x 2 + y 2 + z 2 + a 2 , f ( x, y, z ) = x 2 + y 2 + z 2 ( x 2 + y 2 + z 2 + a 2 ) 7 / 2 , f ( x, y, z ) = x 2 + y 2 ( z 2 - 2 + ρ 2 ) 1 / 2 , f ( x, y, z ) = ρ ( z 2 - 2 + ρ 2 ) 1 / 2 , 2) Potentials and energy: show all work. A sphere of radius R is centered at the origin and the surface (non-conducting) has a charge Q uniformly distributed on the surface. It is cut by a cone of opening angle α , with vertex at the origin and axis along

    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.
