EXAM 2
August 7, 1999 1. This exam is closed book and closed notes. Calculators may not be used. 2. No credit will be given if the work required to obtain the solution is not shown. 3. Perform all your work on the paper provided. The instructors will provide
additional paper if needed. 4. A list of identities is provided at the end of the test. These identities may be
needed in arriving at a final solution. 5. You will have a total of 90 minutes. GOOD LUCK! Do not write below this line. Prob. ‘l: .._._J25

radius a and b, respectively. The conductors are each of length if and the material between the two conductors has a permittivity z»; and a conductivity 0.
Assuming a constant line charge density of p; on the inner conductor, find the a.) capacitance of the coaxial capacitor. b.) resistance of the coaxial capacitor. c.) energy stored by the coaxial capacitor. WWW” SOLUTION: a.) The capacitance for a twoconductor system is defined as the absolute value of the total charge on each conductor divided by the voitage
difference between the two conductors. Thus, C:—.

figure below. One plate is grounded and the other is charged to a potential Va. A
gap at the tip of the wedge (infinitesimally small) insulates one plate from the other. Assuming that a volume charge density given by pv = )Usin(p[C/m3]

5—)0 SOLUTION: a.) Given that a source exists between the conducting plates, the potential
between the plates must satisfy Poisson's equation: Due to the fact that the conducting planes are infinite in p and z, we expect that there will no variation in the potential with respect to either of
these variables. Thus, mag —— —0.

metal plate and the ground plane. Neglect fringing effects. 42. yffiifflflll{fill/II!lifff/fftffflfft‘fTIT/J pg SOLUTION: According to image theory, the configuration given below will produce the same

between the two conductors. According to Gauss's Law, the electric field due to one of the sheets is '

SW. x ‘Ir Notice that the electric field is in the positive z—direction above the sheet
and in the negative z—direction below the sheet. Thus, by superposition
(accounting for the image), the electric field between the two conductors
is given by Ez=—& for OSzSd.
8 We recognize that the electric field is equal to zero everywhere outside
the plates (the electric field due to the top sheet is of equal magnitude
but in opposite direction to the field due to the bottom sheet). From the electric field, the potential difference between the ground plane
and the conducting sheet becomes Notice that, for convenience, the line integral is carried out along the 2
axis. However, it is important to recognize that due to the conservative
nature of the electric field, the integral is path independent. Having computed the voltage drop across the conductors it is next necessary to calculate the total charge contained on the conducting
plane. Recall that the capacitance is given by C=—Q».
V Since the surface charge is distributed uniformly on the conducting sheet
(given), the total charge becomes Q=Ipsds
