Massachusetts Institute of Technology Department of Physics Physics 8.022 - Fall 2002 Assignment #4 Conductors, Capacitance Current, Resistance, Ohm's Law Reading Purcell Chapter 3 and 4. Problem Set #4 Work on all problems. Not all problems receive equal points. Total points for this set is 100. z (20 points) [1] Energy of a conductor in a capacitor. Two flat square metal plates with sides of length L are arranged parallel to each other with a separation of S where S << L . This assumption allows you to neglect the fringing effects due to the uncharged, conducting plate of the finite size of the plates. A charge +Q is moved from the top plate to the bottom. A third, same size with thickness is slid between the other two to a depth of x , maintaining the same spacing of { What are the surface charge densities between its surface and that of the other two. and on the lower plate adjacent to the wide and narrow gaps? { What is the electric field in the wide and narrow gaps?

### 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.
