1.
An ideal parallelplate capacitor is shown in
Fig. 1
. The radius of each plate is a. The
spacing between the two plates is h. A timevarying voltage V(t) = V
0
sin(
ω
t) is applied across
the capacitor. Assume uniform field inside the capacitor and ignore fringing effects.
(a)
A rectangularshaped open metal loop is inserted in the capacitor. The surface of
the loop is parallel to the axis of the capacitor. The dimensions of the loop are
width
w
and length
l
. The insertion depth is
b
. Calculate the induced voltage V
ind
across the loop.
(b)
Show that
Where
U
(t) is the total electromagnetic energy stored inside the capacitor,
E
and
H
are, respectively, the electric and magnetic field vector. The integral is evaluated over
the surface that encloses the volume between the two circular plates.
