The plates are isolated from each other with a thin layer of insulator. The potential is desired in the region x, y > 0. a) Solve an appropriate image problem and obtain the Green function, GD . b) Solve another appropriate image problem and obtain the reduced Green function, g2 (x, x′ , y, y ′). c) Integrate GD over z’ and show that you also get g2 . d) Instead of integrating g2 over ρ′ , if you want g1 (φ, φ′ ), assume the plate running along the positive x axis has constant potential V and the plate running along the positive y axis has constant potential V’. Use the solution of the LaPlace equation to get g1 . 2) Consider a hollow spherical conductor of inner radius a. There is a point charge q at dez , where d < a. a) Find the surface charge density induced on the shell’s inner surface. Note, it is not uniform. b) Using only the point charge and the surface charge density at r=a, explicitly calculate the potential at any point r > a. You should know the answer as a check. 3) Consider a solid dielectric sphere of radius a and permitivity ǫ. A elementary electric dipole p = pez is at dez , where d > a. Find the potential at all points in space. 4) An infinitely long cylindrical conductor of radius a is kept at potential V. The cylinder axis runs parallel to ez and an infinite grounded conducting plane, x=0. If the cylinder axis passes through (x,y)=(c,0), find the potential at any (x,y), where x > 0. 1 ...
