Problem Set 3 : 1. ( Jackson 6.20 ). An example of the preservation of causality and finite speed of propagation in spite of the use of the Coulomb gauge is afforded by a unit strength dipole source that is flashed on and off at t = 0. The charge and current densities are ( r , t ) = ( x ) ( y ) ( z ) ( t ) J ( r , t ) = − e 3 ( x ) ( y ) ( z ) ( t ) where a prime means differentiation with respect to the argument. This dipole is of unit strength and it points in the negative z direction. ( a ) Show that the instantaneous Coulomb potential (6.23 in text) is ( r , t ) = − 1 4  o z r 3 ( t ) . ( b ) Show that the transverse current, J t , is J t ( r , t ) = − e 3 2 3 ( 3 ) ( r ) + 1 4 3 n ( n e 3 ) − e 3 r 3 ( t ) where n = r ̂ , a unit vector along the r direction and the. 2 3 factor multiplying the delta function comes from treating the gradient of z r 3 according to (4.20 in text.) ( c ) Show that the electric and magnetic fields are causal and that the electric field components are given by: E ( r , t ) = e 3 c r ′′ ( ct r ) + 1 r 2

### 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.
