For E = 2 x ˆ x + 2 sin ( z ) ˆ y- 2 z ˆ z , we have ∇ × E = ˆ x ˆ y ˆ z ∂ ∂x ∂ ∂y ∂ ∂z 2 x 2 sin ( z )- 2 z =- 2 cos ( z ) ˆ x. Since ∇ × E 6 = 0 , eld E is not electrostatic. 2. a) The bottom plate is holding the positive charge density, because the voltage decreases as z increases, which means that the electric eld is pointing upward. b) E 1 =-∇ V 1 =- ˆ z ∂ ∂z (- 2 z ) = 2ˆ z ( V/m ) , E 2 =-∇ V 2 =- ˆ z ∂ ∂z (- 1- z ) = ˆ z ( V/m ) . c) Due to the boundary condition ˆ n · ( D 2- D 1 ) = ρ s , the displacement eld between the two plates is a constant: D = 4 ˆ z ( C/m 2 ) . Therefore, E 1 = D 1 = 4 1 ˆ z ( V/m ) , E 2 = D 2 = 4 2 ˆ z ( V/m ) . By comparing with the result of (b), we have 4 / 1 = 2 and 4 / 2 = 1 , or 1 = 2 and 2 = 4 . d) Since the voltage is continuous at z = d , we have- 2 d =- 1- d. Thus, d = 1 ( m ) . 3. Consider a pair of parallel conducting plates placed at z = 0 and z = W that sustains an electric eld E =- 4ˆ z ( V/m ) . The gap between the plates is originally occupied by vacuum....
