outside the sphere has a dielectric breakdown of 3.0 [MV/m]. The height h is much larger
than the radius a, so that the charge density on the sphere may be assumed to be uniform. 1. Determine the maximum charge Qmax that can be placed on the sphere before
dielectric breakdown will occur. (Do not neglect the effects of the ground plane!) 2. Determine the voltage drop between the sphere and the ground plane when a charge
Qmax is on the Sphere.  _ r I 7 %,‘T/.“_\ Problem 4 (20 pts) A hollow Spherical shell of uniform charge density p5 [C/mz], having a radius a, is in
free space. 1. Determine the potential function both inside and outside the shell, assuming that the
potential at the center of the Shell is zero Volts. 2. What is the voltage dr0p between the center of the sphere and a point outside the
sphere at a distance r = 2a from the center? (That is, calculate VAB, where A is at
the center of the sphere and B is at r = 20 .) /

charge slab is h. The potential at the ground plane is taken as zero Volts. 1. GM: a convincing argument as to why the electric ﬁeld above the slab (x 211) should be zero. 2. Use the result from the previous part, along with the boundary c0ndition on the ground plane, to solve for the potential function inside the slab ( 0 < x < h) using
Poisson’s equation. . /‘  ' r  . ~ 0‘ /J\ "'c
