3.18b In the magnetoquasistatic approximation to Maxwell’s equations, the displacement current is assumed to be much less than the conduction current, so that Ampere’s Law
may be written: V x H = J
Assuming that this approximation holds, show that Maxwell’s equations for a spatially
uniform medium with ﬁnite conductivity 0 lead to the magnetic diffusion equation, written VZH =u6211
6t Note: You may assume J = GE and B = pH. 6) A spherical COnductor of radius a is exposed to a unifonn time—varying magnetic field
in the z—direction: B(t) = B0 sin out 2 It may be assumed that the radius a of the sphere is very small compared to the skin
depth 5, given by San/(ﬂue) where o is the conductivity, f is the frequency, and u is the permeability, assumed to be
no everywhere. Derive an expression for the time-average power dissipated in the sphere. 2 Conducting sphere
of radius a HIM 7) Consider a simple parallel plate capacitor connected to a sinusoidal voltage source
V(t) = V0 sin (0t, as shown. |‘-d-’| The radius of each of the round conducting plates is a, and the separation between the
plates is d. The medium between the plates is a perfect insulator with permittivity s,
and permeability no . Let d<<a<<?t, where A is the wavelength that a freely- propagating wave at frequency to would have in this dielectric medium. (a) Using one or more of Maxwell’s equations (in integral or differential form, your
choice) determine the D ﬁeld in the region between the plates. Express your answer in terms of V0, 03, a, d, 8, no and/or 7L. State all assumptions and
approximations that you are making. (b) A time-varying D ﬁeld is associated with a circulating magnetic ﬁeld. Show that

magnetic ﬁeld energy and W5 is the total electric ﬁeld energy within the capacitor. Write your answer as a function of no, a, a and K. Discuss the relative magnitude of
the ratio. Under what conditions should your results be regarded as valid? (c) Determine the ratio of the time—averaged energies , where WM is the total ((1) Determine the instantaneous Poynting vector within the dielectric medium. Discuss
