Physics 505 Fall 2007 Homework Assignment #1 — Due Thursday, September 13 Textbook problems: Ch. 1: 1.5, 1.7, 1.11, 1.12 1.5 The time-averaged potential of a neutral hydrogen atom is given by Φ = q 4 π± 0 e - αr r ± 1 + αr 2 ² where q is the magnitude of the electronic charge, and α - 1 = a 0 / 2, a 0 being the Bohr radius. Find the distribution of charge (both continuous and discrete) that will give this potential and interpret your result physically. 1.7 Two long, cylindrical conductors of radia a 1 and a 2 are parallel and separated by a distance d , which is large compared with either radius. Show that the capacitance per unit length is given approximately by C = π± 0 ³ ln d a ´ - 1 where a is the geometrical mean of the two radii. Approximately what gauge wire (state diameter in millimeters) would be necessary to make a two-wire transmission line with a capacitance of 1
