Unformatted text preview: 1 Physics 1C Winter Quarter 2009 W. Gekelman – Notes5© Let us write down Maxwell’s equations in both integral and differential form. Differential Form Integral Form ! • !

E i ˆ ndA ¡ What are the curl the gradient and the divergence? In rectangular coordinates: ! " !

E = ¢ E x ¢ x + ¢ E y ¢ y + ¢ E z ¢ z DIVERGENCE ! 2 ! E = " 2 E x " x 2 + " 2 E y " y 2 + " 2 E z " z 2 These equations are all familiar except for the term in red. This is Maxwell’s great contribution. How do you go from integral to differential form? Take Faraday’s law: ! E i d ! l = ! d dt " " ! B i ˆ ndA " This is integral form. Then use the mathematical theorem: ! A i d ! l = ! " ! A ( ) # " # i ˆ ndA This is true for any vector A ! " ! E ( ) i ˆ ndA = # d dt " $ ! B i ˆ ndA $ and equating the integrands: ! " ! E = # $ ! B $ t For Coulombs law: 2 ! E i ˆ ndA = q ! " Now use the vector divergence theorem: ! i ! E ( ) " dV = ! E i ˆ ndA " Since the charge is the integral over the volume charge density: q = ! dV " we arrive at: ! i ! E ( ) " dV = ! E i ˆ ndA " = 1 # $ dV " . Again equating the integrands: ! • ! E = " # Consider a capacitor when it is charging Inside the capacitor no charge flows and Ampere’s law with Maxwell’s term becomes: (1) !...
