Unformatted text preview: Jackson Problem 1.6 B. J. Mattson 1 Part a Outside both of the plates, the total E ﬁeld is zero (a Gaussian pillbox including both plates conatins no net charge). Between the plates, the E ﬁlds from each plate add. So, for the magnitude of the ﬁeld between the plates, I just need to double the contribution for one plate. Use a pillbox on the upper plate with area, a, and squish the box so that the contri— butions from the sides are zero. E ﬁda = — p(:Z"’) d33: (1) 60 Eoutszdea+Em31dea — ﬂ 60 2E = 5 (3) 60 So, the ﬁeld between the plates is E = —%2. Choosing a path in the —2 direction, the potential difference between the plates is: v = —/dOE-d7 (5) = Adieu (6) = id (7) _Q _Qd But,0—Z,soV—€0—A.
