Solution Quiz 3 NAME: __________________________________________ Quiz #3c: Phys270 Section 0102 1. [10 pts] Show that the displacement current inside a parallel-plate capacitor can be written as: where C is the capacitance and Vc is the voltage across the capacitor. Solution: We can use one of the Maxwells equation: and rewrite it as Disp s I I dl B 0 0 . We might say that the magnetic field B at some point outside the capacitor originates due to the effect of a real current s I and a displacement current Disp I . Then we have   t V C t V D A t A D V t A E t I C C C S E Disp
