Any integrals in free-response problems must be evaluated. I . (24 points) An infinite slab of current has thickness t and uni- form area current density J out of the page. What is the magnitude of the magnetic field at a distance d above the sheet? Express your answer in terms of parameters defined in the problem, and physical or mathematical constants. . . . . . . . . . . . . . Symmetry considerations show that the magnetic field points to the left above the slab, and to the right below it. Use Amperes Law. Sketch a rectangular Amperian Loop of height 2 d + t and width s . Then I ~ B ~ ds = B 2 s as ~ B is parallel to ~ ds at the top and bottom of the loop, and ~ B is perpendicular to ~ ds on the left and right sides. The current passing through the loop can be found from the current density I through = Z ~ J ~ dA = JA = Jst Putting these together in Amperes Law I ~ B ~ ds = I through B 2 s = Jst B = Jt/ 2 Quiz #4 Solutions Page 1 of 4 1. (8 points) The switch in the illustrated circuit is set to position b for a long time, then set to position a for a time t a , then set back to position b. After that, the current through the resistor is I = I e- t b /RC where t b is the time from returning the switch to position b....
