Peik AEE1 Assignment 3 Deadline: next Wednesday Name: ______________________________________ Prerequisite: Electrical Fields Charge Distributions cartesian, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems, To be studied: Lecture Notes Chapter 3 Sadiku Coordinate Systems 4.7 and 4.8 Ulaby 4.5 Griffiths 2.3 and 2.4 Objectives of this Assignment: To get familiar with the concept of potentials Understand the relation of E-fields and electric Potantial Problem 1: Two point charges with charge -q and q each are located on the z-axis at z = a, respectively, as shown. Medium is vacuum. Use cylindrical coordinates to solve the problem. z a -q y x -a q 1. Find the electric potential V (, , z) everywhere in space. 4 points 2. What is the direction of the E-field on the x-y-plane? No calculation required! 2 points 3. Find the E-field vector E(, , z = o) in the xy-plane? 4.

AEE1 Assignment 3, Fall 2008 Prof. S. Peik Since the coordinates are orthogonal, we have to integrate only the component in the direction of integration movement. E.g. in the first step we integrate ^ (z + 1) sin only.
