Princeton University—Physics 501 Problem Set 4 Due: Oct. 18, 2011 1) A long right cylinder of radius a and permeability μ is oriented with its symmetry axis perpendicular to a uniform field ~ B 0 . Calculate the ~ B field everywhere in space. ( Hint: Since there are no currents, ~ ∇× ~ H = 0 so that one can define a magnetic potential Φ M . You can make an argument that Φ M satisfies LaPlace’s equation.) 2) A solid conducting sphere of radius a rotates with angular velocity ω along an axis parallel to a uniform magnetic field ~ B . Calculate the induced surface charge density, and the charge induced in the sphere. ( Hint: Consider the force experienced by a free charge in the sphere, which will be the sum of the Coulomb force and the Lorentz force. The charge in the sphere will rearrange itself until these forces cancel one another. Also,

Show that the magnetic induction on the cylinder axis in the limit NL is B z = NI 2 (cos 1 + cos 2 ) where the angles are dened in the gure. 2 1 4) (J5.13) A sphere of radius a carries a uniform surface-charge distribution . The sphere is rotated about a diameter with constant angular speed . Find the vector potential and magnetic-ux density both inside and outside the sphere. Hint: Decompose the Y m s into e.g., ( y cos - x sin )sin -i 2 [ x ( Y 1 , 1 + Y 1 ,-1 ) + i y ( Y 1 , 1 + Y 1 ,-1 )]...
