HW6
1.
A rectangular pipe, running parallel to the z axis (from 
∞ to +∞), has three ground metal
sides at y=0, y=a, and x=0.
The fourth side, at x=b, is maintained at a specific potential
V
0
(y).
(a)
Develop a general formula for the potential within the pipe.
(b)
Find the potential explicitly for the case of V
0
(y)= V
0
(constant).
2.
A cubical box (side length of a) consists of five metal plates (x=0, x=a, y=0, y=a, and z=0),
which are welded together and grounded.
The top (z=a) is made of a separate sheet of metal,
insulated from the others, and held at a constant potential V
0
.
Find the potential inside the
box.
3.
Find the potential outside a charged metal sphere (Charge Q, radius R) placed in an otherwise
