Prof. E. Yablonovitch ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS AND WAVES EE117 Homework #2; assigned: Feb. 7, 2011 Due 5PM, Monday, Feb. 14, 2011 Please put the completed homework in the plastic tray on my door, 267M Cory 1. An infinitely long conducting cylinder of radius a , has a surface charge density of ρ s . The cylinder is surrounded by a dielectric medium with ε r =4 and contains no free charges. To induce charges on the metal surface, an external electric field must be applied. The tangential component of the electric field in the region r>a caused by the surface charges is 2 / cos ˆ r E t φ φ = where φ ˆ is a unit vector in the tangential direction. Since a static conductor cannot have any tangential field, this must be cancelled by the externally applied electric field.

### 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.
