Unformatted text preview: Physics 505 Fall 2007 Practice Final The final will be a three hour open book, open notes exam. Do all four problems. 1. Two point charges q and q are located on the z axis at z = + d/ 2 and z = d/ 2, respectively. a ) If the charges are isolated in space, show that the potential admits a Legendre expansion ( r, ) = 2 q 4 X l odd r l < r l +1 > P l (cos ) where r < = min( r, d/ 2) and r > = max( r, d/ 2). b ) Now consider the charges to be contained inside a linear dielectric sphere of permittivity and radius a (where a > d/ 2). q q Find the electric potential everywhere as an expansion in Legendre polynomials. 2. A point magnetic dipole ~m is located in vacuum pointing away from and a distance d away from a semiinfinite slab of material with relative permeability r . a ) Find the magnetic induction everywhere. b ) What is the force on the dipole (magnitude and direction)?...
