Unformatted text preview: Electromagnetics (I) Final Examination June 15,2009 . (1) Write down the Maxwell equations in differential form. (2) What is the advantage of the
differential—form Maxwell equations over the integral-form ones? Discuss it brieﬂy. (16%) . (1) What is a phasor? Discuss its usefulness in electromagnetic theory brieﬂy. (2) To compute the
time-average Poynting vector, we usually introduce a complex Poynting vector. Please write down
the expression of that complex Poynting vector. Is it also a phasor? Explain brieﬂy. (16%) . An inﬁnite plane sheet lying in the z = 0 plane carries a time-varying surface current of density

,ua at . A steady conduction current is distributed in an inhomogeneous lossy dielectric medium (with
conductivity 0'( f) and permittivity 8(7 )) under the inﬂuence of an electrostatic ﬁeld E . (1) Show that in the medium there exist free charges with volume density p f = (Vs — 3 Va) - E .

dielectric whose conductivity varies linearly from 61 at one plate (y=0) to 02 at the other plate (y=d, d<<«/§ ). The permittivity of the dielectric is a constant e. A battery of d-c voltage V0 is
applied across the plates, as shown in the following ﬁgure. Determine ( 1) the total resistance
between the plates, (2) the surface densities of free charges on both plates, and (3) the volume
density of free charges between the plates. (4) Draw an equivalent circuit of this system,
neglecting the magnetic effect. (5) If the battery is disconnected, what would happen to this system? Give a qualitative description brieﬂy.
