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 + = = λ , where n x , n y = all positive integers. Problem 2 (25 points): Consider Planck’s formula 1 1 8 ) , ( / 5 = T k hc Planck e hc T λ λ π λ ρ , where ρ (T, λ )d λ is the energy per unit volume in a spherical “black-body” cavity at temperature T with wavelength between λ and λ +d λ ,, λ λ ρ d dU V T 1 ) , ( = .

### 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.
