October 25, 2011 MID - TERM TEST DEPARTMENT & COURSE NO.: PHYS 2600 PAGE NO.: 1 of 1 TIME: 1.25 hours EXAMINATION: Electromagnetic Theory EXAMINER: S.A. Page Instructions: Answer all questions. Be as concise as possible with descriptive answers. Define variables clearly with reference to a labeled diagram, and state all assumptions at the start of each problem. Ask for assistance if you require a formula that is not explicitly provided on the sheet. 1. Electric Fields: a) What is an electric field ? (keep your answer brief!) b) Sketch the source and distribution of electric field lines for: i.) a negative point charge ii) an electric dipole iii) an arbitrarily-shaped piece of uncharged conducting material, sitting midway between two very large, uniform planar sheets of opposite charge 2. Uniform charge sheets: a) Use Gauss’ law to derive an expression for the electric field E G due to a very large, uniform planar sheet of charge, with surface charge density σ , noting any symmetry assumptions that you make in order to arrive at your solution.

    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.
