Due: Tuesday, February 3, 2004 (Session 7)
[Students with tape delays: due according to session number] These problems are from the text by Ramo, Whinnery and Van Duzer (3rd edition, 1994).
1) 7.12a 2) 7.126 3) A conductor on a circuit board has width W and carries a current I. The conductivity of
the conductor is 0'. There is a small hole of radius a at the center of the conductor. The
thickness t of the conductor is small compared to a. (Therefore this problem may be
treated as a two-dimensional problem in cylindrical coordinates.) Assume the current is
DC. You may also assume that the width of the circuit board W is large compared to the
hole radius (W>>a). Let the coordinate origin be at the center of the hole. (i) Sketch qualitatively the sheet current density J 5 (units are Aim) in the vicinity of the
hole. (The sheet current density is the uniform current density J integrated over the thickness of the conductor, that is J S = J xt ) (ii) Derive an expressiou for J 5. Express your answer in terms of I, W, I and (1). (iii) What is the maximum magnitude of J 5? Express your answer in terms of I and W.
(The answer does not include the hole radius a.) Note that the maximum should be
located along the x = 0 line (where the current is maximally constricted). (iv) Give an expression for the sheet surface charge density (units Coulomb/m) along the
edge of the hole. 4) a) Shown below are two infinitely long, very thin insulated conducting plates which are held at potentials V0 and 0 as indicated. (The plates are infinite in the z-direction and
semi-infinite in the other dimension.) “ﬁne

are infinite in the z-direction and finite in the x-y plane.) (i) Neglecting the effects of fringing, determine the capacitance of the structure per unit
length. (ii) Neglecting the effects of fringing and without using the relationship WE = %C V2, determine the energy stored in the structure per unit length. Show that your result is
in fact equal to %C V2. 5) To measure the conductivity 0 of a semiconducting wafer of thickness t, a hemispherical
electrode of radius a is alloyed into one side of the wafer as shown below. The other
surface is grounded and serves as the second terminal. Assuming that the contacts are ohmic and perfect conductors, derive an expression for the conductivity, c, as a function
of the measured resistance (R). Since the alloyed electrode is very small and the wafer is very thick, you can assume that
the current is uniformly distributed over the hemispherical alloyed contact. a/ G t>>a 6) 2.3b
