Physics 351 Elec. & Magnetism Test 2 Prof. Asim Gangopadhyaya As always, to receive full credit you must show your work in a neat, organized and a legible form. Some Relevant Formulae are given below: V sph ( r,θ,φ ) = ∞ X ‘ =0 A ‘ r ‘ + B ‘ r ‘ +1 ¶ P ‘ (cos θ ) V cyl ( ρ,φ ) = ( a + b log ρ )( c + d φ ) + ∞ X n =1 ( a n ρ n + b n ρ n ) ( c n cos( nφ ) + d n sin( nφ )) ‡ ~ E 2 ~ E 1 · · ˆ n 1 → 2 = σ ² ; ‡ ~ E 2 ~ E 1 · × ˆ n 1 → 2 = 0 ; cos( a + b ) = cos a cos b sin a sin b , P ( x ) = 1 , P 1 ( x ) = x , P 2 ( x ) = 1 2 (3 x 2 1) , P 3 ( x ) = 1 2 (5 x 3 3 x ) ; Z 1 1 dx P m ( x ) P n ( x ) = 2 2 m + 1 δ mn (1 + x ) ν = 1 + νx + ν ( ν 1) 2! x 2 + ν ( ν 1)( ν 2) 3! x 3 + ν ( ν 1)( ν 2)( ν 3) 4! x 4 + ··· ; converges for  x  < 1 . ln(1 + x ) = x x 2 2 + x 3 3 + ··· + ( 1) n +1 x n n + ··· 1. (10 points) Electrostatic field inside a conductor is zero. Prove that Electrostatic field just outside a conductor is always perpendicular to the surface. Solution: ‡ ~ E 2 ~ E 1 · × ˆ n 1 → 2 = 0 implies that tangential component of electric field is continuous across any interface. Since ~ E in = 0, its tangential component is zero as well. Which means that tangential component of ~ E out must be zero. Thus, only the normal component outside is potentiall nonzero.must be zero....
