PHY 5346 HW Set 4 Solutions – Kimel 2. 2.9 The system is pictured below a) We have treated this probem in class. We found the charge density induced was a = 3 P 0 E 0 cos S We also note the radial force/unit area outward from the surface is a 2 /2 P 0 . Thus the force on the right hand hemisphere is, using x = cos S F z = 1 2 P 0 X a 2 z ! 6 da 3 = 1 2 P 0 Ý 3 P 0 E 0 Þ 2 2 ^ R 2 X 0 1 x 3 dx = 1 2 P 0 Ý 3 P 0 E 0 Þ 2 2 ^ R 2 /4 = 9 4 ^ P 0 E 0 2 R 2 An equal force acting in the opposite direction would be required to keep the hemispheres from sparating. b) Now the charge density is
