Problem 3 Part (d)
R K=5 -Q0 R -Q0 The capacitor in the figure has C=1F and is initially charged with Q0=1C. The resistor
has R=100Ω. At t=0 the switch S is closed.
(a) Find the current through R immediately after the switch is closed, I(t=0+), in A.
(b) Find the energy dissipated in the resistor during the first second after the switch is
closed, in J, accurate to 5 decimal places at least. Compare your answer with
[I(t=0+)]2Rx1s, and explain why it is similar or very different.
(c) Find the total energy dissipated in the resistor after a long time has passed, in J.
(d) Suppose before you close S you insert between the plates of the capacitor a dielectric
of dielectric constant K=5. Find the answer for point (c) again.
(e) If the answers to (c) and (d) were different, explain how to account for the difference
in energy. Where did the extra energy go, or where did the extra energy come from? ! Problem 4
The electric field in a region of space that extends 2m from the origin in all directions is
E ( x, y, z) = ( i "
j )V / m
(a) Explain why this cannot be an electrostatic field (i.e. a field that is produced by static
(b) Assuming the magnetic field at point (0,0,0) is 0 at time t=0, find its magnitude at
time t=1s, in T.
(c) A square loop of wire of resistance R=2Ω lies on the xy plane with vertices at points
(0,0), (1m,0), (1m,1m), (0,1m). Find the current that circulates through that loop, in A.
(d) Looked at from a point on the +z axis, does the current flow clockwise or
