C:\User\Teaching\505-506\F10\HW03.doc PHY 505 Classical Electrodynamics I Fall 2010 Homework 3 (due Friday Oct. 1) Problem 3.1 (to be graded of 15 points). Calculate the mutual capacitance (per unit length) between two cylindrical conductors, forming a system with the cross-section shown in Fig. on the right, in the limit t << w << R . Hint : You may like to use the “ elliptical ” (not “ellipsoidal”!) coordinates defined by the following equation: ), cosh( i c iy x (*) with the appropriate choice of constant c . In these orthogonal 2D coordinates, the Laplace operator is very simple: 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 ) cos (cosh 1 c . (This is not quite surprising, because Eq.

Formulate the 2D electrostatic problems which can be solved using each of the following analytical functions of the complex variable z x + iy : (i) w = ln z , (ii) w = z 1/2 . Solve one (any) of these problems. Problem 3.3 (20 points). Each electrode of a large plane capacitor is cut into long strips of equal width l , with very narrow gaps between them. These strips are kept at the alternating potentials, as shown in Fig. on the right. Use the variable separation method to calculate the electrostatic potential distribution inside the capacitor.

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.
