I C u v · d l = - I C v u · d l b. Z V ∇ × A d 3 x = I S n × A da c. Z S n × ∇ ψ da = I C ψ d l 2. a. In its own rest frame (in a frame K 0 ), the potential of a point charge is Φ 0 = q 4 πε 0 r 0 A 0 = 0 Find the 4-vector potential, A α = (Φ /c, A ), of a moving charge by placing the charge at the origin of a frame K 0 moving at velocity v in the ˆx direction with respect to frame K and applying a Lorentz transformation. Show that the components are given by the formulas Φ = γq 4 πε 0 p γ 2 ( x - vt ) 2 + y 2 + z 2 A x = v c 2 Φ A y = A z = 0 b.

Unformatted text preview: K and applying a Lorentz transformation. 3. [Jackson 4.10] Two concentric conducting spheres of inner and outer radii a and b , respectively, carry charges Q . The empty space between the spheres is half-lled by a hemi-spherical shell of dielectric (of dielectric constant / ), as shown in the gure. a. Find the electric eld everywhere between the spheres. b. Calculate the surface-charge distribution on the inner sphere. c. Calculate the polarization-charge density induced on the surface of the dielectric r = a (i.e. b ). Hints: (1) Guess that the E is radial. (2) The Gausss law is H S E n da = q inside / and also H S D n da = q inside f / ....
