Displacement Current 03 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A capacitor of capacitance C has a charge Q at t = 0. At that time, a resistor of resistance R is connected to the plates of the charged capacitor. Find the magnitude of the dis placement current between the plates of the capacitor as a function of time. 1. Q RC e − t/Q 2. RC Q e − t/ ( RC ) 3. Q RC e t/ ( RC ) 4. RC Q e t/ ( RC ) 5. Q RC e − t/ ( RC ) correct Explanation: Basic Concept RC circuits. Displacement Current. The displacement current is defined to be I d = ǫ d Φ E dt . The electric field inside a capacitor is essen tially uniform and E = q ǫ A . Since the charge on a capacitor in a discharging RC circuit is given by q ( t ) = Q e − t/RC , the displacement current is found by I d = ǫ d Φ E dt = ǫ d dt parenleftbigg q ǫ A A parenrightbigg = dq dt = Q RC e − t/ ( RC ) . Note that the displacement current equals the actual current in the wires to the capacitor. Thus, the AmpereMaxwell law tells us that vector B will be the same regardless of which current we evaluate. 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Given C = 2 μ F, Q = 28 μ C, R = 391 kΩ, and ǫ = 8 . 85419 × 10 − 12 C 2 / N · m 2 , at what rate is the electric flux between the plates changing at time t = 0 . 17 s? Correct answer: 3 . 2538 × 10 6 Vm / s. Explanation: Let : ǫ = 8 . 85419 × 10 − 12 C 2 / N · m 2 , t = 0 . 17 s , C = 2 μ F , Q = 28 μ C = 2 . 8 × 10 − 5 C , and R = 391 kΩ = 3 . 91 × 10 5 Ω . From the discussion in the previous part, we know that d Φ E dt = I d ǫ = Q ǫ RC e − t/ ( RC ) = 2 . 8 × 10 − 5 C ǫ (3 . 91 × 10 5 Ω) (2 × 10 − 6 F) × e bracketleftbigg . 17 s (3 . 91 × 10 5 Ω)(2 × 10 − 6 F) bracketrightbigg = 3 . 2538 × 10 6 Vm / s .
