411 Problem Set 3 Spring 09 1. The capacitance is determined from the definition C = Q / Δ V ,where Q is the magnitude of the charge stored and Δ V is the magnitude of the electrostatic potential difference between the two surfaces which form the capacitor. ( a ) In each of the following find ( r ) or E ( r ) between the two surfaces and determine the capacitance in Gaussian units starting from the definition C = Q / Δ V . Use Gauss’ law to find E , if needed. i). parallel plate capacitor, area A , plate separation d ( d << A ) ii). length, L, of a long cylindrical capacitor, inner radius a , outer radius b ; iii). a solid spherical conductor with radius, R . ( b ) Show in each case that the total electrostatic energy, W = 1 8 ∫∫∫ |∇ ( r )| 2 d 3 x , stored in the field (note the integral is over all space) is given by 1 2 QV Jackson problem 1.10 For a charge free space prove that the value of the potential at any point is equal to the average of the potential on any spherical surface centered on the point.
