The electric field between the plates depends on the voltage: E = V / d , so d E /d t = (1/ d ) d V /d t = (1/1.3 10 3 m)(120 V/s) = 9.2 10 4 V/m s . 2. The displacement current is I D = A (d E /d t ) = (8.85 10 12 C 2 /N m 2 )(0.038 m) 2 (2.0 10 6 V/m s) = 2.6 10 8 A . 3. The current in the wires must also be the displacement current in the capacitor. We find the rate at which the electric field is changing from I D = A (d E /d t ); 1.8 A = (8.85 10 12 C 2 /N m 2 )(0.0160 m) 2 d E /d t , which gives d E /d t = 7.9 10 14 V/m s . 4. The current in the wires is the rate at which charge is accumulating on the plates and must also be the displacement current in the capacitor. Because the location is outside the capacitor, we can use the expression for the magnetic field of a long wire: B = ( /4p)2 I D / R = (10 7 T m/A)2(35.0 10 3 A)/(0.100 m) = 7.00 10 8 T . After the capacitor is fully charged, all currents will be zero, so the magnetic field will be zero . 5. The electric field between the plates depends on the voltage: E = V / d , so d E /d t = (1/ d ) d V /d t . Thus the displacement current is I D = A (d E /d t ) = ( A / d )(d V /d t ) = C d V /d t . 6. ( a ) The current in the wires is the rate at which charge is accumulating on the plates and must also be the displacement current in the capacitor: I max = I D,max = 35 A . ( b ) At any instant, the charge on the plates is Q = C , so the current is I = d Q /d t = C d /d t = C sin t , or I max = p R 2 / d ; 35 10 6 A = 2p(96.0 Hz) (8.85 10 12 C 2 /N m 2 )p(0.025 m) 2 /(2.0 10 3 m), which gives = 6.7 10 3 V . ( c ) We can find the maximum value of d E /d t from the maximum value of the displacement current: I D,max = (d E /d t ) max ; 35 10 6 A = (8.85 10 12 C 2 /N m 2 )(d E /d t ) max , which gives (d E /d t ) max = 4.0 10 6 V m/s . 7. Gausss law for electricity and Amperes law will not change. From the analogy to Gausss law for electric fields, where Q is the source, Q m would be the source of the magnetic field, so we have B d A = Q m . From the analogy to Amperes law, we have an additional current contribution to Faradays law.From the analogy to Amperes law, we have an additional current contribution to Faradays law....
