2013-09-15 I have posted the solutions for the first assignment. Here is the second assignment. It is due at 1pm on Friday in the box across from PHY204. Assignment 2.1: Vector Analysis (a) Ensure that you are familiar with 1.1, covering vector algebra, of the textbook. (b) Ensure that you are familiar with 1.2, covering differential calculus, of the textbook. (c) Ensure that you are familiar with 1.3, covering integral calculus, of the textbook. (d) Ensure that you are familiar with 1.4, covering curvilinear coordinates, of the textbook. (e) Ensure that you are familiar with 1.5, covering the Dirac delta function, of the textbook. (f) Ensure that you are familiar with 1.6, covering the Helmholtz theorem and potentials, of the textbook. (There is nothing to be handed in for this problem.) Assignment 2.2: Potentials Do Problems 2.21 and 2.27 from the text (third or fourth edition). Assignment 2.3: Energy Do Problem 2.36 from the text (Problem 2.34 of the third edition). Assignment 2.4: Capacitance Do Problems 2.43 & 2.44 from the text (Problems 2.39 & 2.40 of the third edition).

2013-09-09 Welcome to the phys441A web page. Here you will find both announcements and various documents for this course. A copy of the course outline is here. Here is the first assignment. It is due at noon on Friday in the box across from PHY204 Assignment 1.1: Spherical Shells Consider a spherical shell of radius with a uniform charge density . (a) Use Gauss' law to find the electric field outside the sphere? (b) Use Gauss' law to find the electric field inside the sphere? (c) Repeat parts (a) and (b) by performing the relevant integral directly. Assignment 1.2: Spherical Charges
