JDJ uses up alot of space showing that the potential changes discontinuously when you pass through a dipole layer of charges. We’ll investigate this in an easy way. Let the volume charge density be ρ(r) = σ0 δ (r − R) + σ1 δ (r − R ), where σ0 , R, σ1 , R are constants and R < R . Find E, Φ for a)r < R, R < r < R , r > R . Specialize to the case σ1 = −σ0 and R = R + ∆, ∆ << 1. Now calculate Φ(r > R ) and Φ(r < R) and note the discontinuity. 2) An infinitely long right cylindrical region of radius R has uniform volume charge density ρ0 . It is surrounded by an uncharged coaxial right cylindrical conducting shell of inner radius R’ (R’ > R) and outer radius R”. Find the E for a) ρ > R”, b) R < ρ < R’, c) ρ < R. Find Φ(R) -Φ(R”). 2 h ¯ 3) Show that the Schrodinger Equation, − 2m 2 Ψ = ih ∂ Ψ , is invariant under the Galillean ¯ ∂t transform, provided the wave function in the O’ frame is renormalized by a phase, Ψ = Ψeiα , where α = − mv (z − vt/2) and z is the direction of relative motion between O and O’. That h ¯ 2 h ¯ is, show that − 2m 2 Ψ = ih ∂ Ψ . ¯ ∂t 4) JDJ 11-4 5) Using the information about the relativistic Doppler shift show that the phase of an electromagnetic wave k · r − ωt is a Lorentz Invariant (LI). Give a physical reason why this is so. Thus kµ = (ω/c, ik) is a 4-vector. Here k = 2π/λ, ω/k = c in vacuum and the direction of k is along the photon’s velocity. 1 ...
