Unformatted text preview: PHY3063 Spring 2007 Problem Set 4 Department of Physics Page 1 of 2 PHY 3063 Problem Set #4 Due Thursday February 15 (in class) (Total Points = 70, Late homework = 50%) Reading: Continue reading Tipler & Llewellyn Chapter 3. Problem 1 (10 points): Consider a two dimensional conducting square with sides of length L . Show that if the electric field must vanish on the conductor then the allowed wavelengths (and frequencies) of the electrometric radiation within the cavity are given by 2 2 2 2 y x n n c Lf L + = = , where n x , n y = all positive integers. Problem 2 (25 points): Consider Plancks formula 1 1 8 ) , ( / 5 = T k hc Planck e hc T , where (T, )d is the energy per unit volume in a spherical black-body cavity at temperature T with wavelength between and +d ,, d dU V T 1 ) , ( = .
