ECE 3209 — Electromagnetic Fields University of Virginia Fall 2009 Homework # 3 — Electric Fields and Scalar Potential Due: Friday, September 18 1. Cheng, P. 3-11 . 2. Cheng, P. 3-15 . 3. Two spheres, each of radius R and carrying uniform charge densities + ρ and - ρ , respectively, are placed so that they partially overlap. The vector from the center of the negative sphere to the center of the positive sphere is ~s . Show that the field in the region of overlap is constant and find its value. 4. A long coaxial cable carries a uniform volume charge density ρ on the inner cylinder (radius a ) and a uniform surface charge density on the outer cylindrical shell (radius b ). This surface charge is negative and of the right magnitude that the cable as a whole is electrically neutral. Find the electric field in each of three regions (i) inside the cylinder ( r < a ), (ii) between the cylinders ( a < r < b ), and (iii) outside the cable ( r > b

Cheng, P. 3-17 . In class, we found the electric eld around an innitely long uniform line of charge by applying Gausss Law. This was possible because the eld in that case is a function of radial distance r only and any coaxial cylindrical surface around an innite line of uniform charge is an equipotential surface. In practice, of course, all charge sources must be of nite length and, as a result, the equipotential surfaces are not coaxial cylinders. Given a nite line of charge with uniform linear charge density and length L , nd the potential (with reference potential of zero at innity) on a coaxial cylindrical surface of radius R as a function of x and plot it....
