Phys 3327 Fall 2010 HW 5 Due Wednesday 10/6/10 in lecture Homework 5 Dynamic Electromagnetism Ex. 5.1: Capacitor Consider a parallel-plate capacitor consisting of two large parallel perfectly conducting discs a distance d apart and separated by a vacuum. The discs have radius a . At time t = 0, the capacitor is connected to a battery, such that a constant current i starts to flow onto the upper plate. (The same current flows out of the lower plate.) When answering the questions below you may neglect edge effects. You may give all your answers to leading order in the small ratio a/ct . a) What are the electric and magnetic fields in the space between the capacitor plates, as a function of time? Be sure to specify magnitude and direction. b) Calculate the total field energy density for the space between the capacitor plates. Do the electric and magnetic fields contribute equally to the energy density? Hint: use the inequality t a/c .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
