1. Starting from equation (1.5) in the text, compute the electric field

in space produced by an infinite sheet of uniform surface charge density lying in the x-y

plane.

Equation (1.5) says

E (x) = 41

Here, the charge measure (x ) d3 x becomes the two-dimensional distribution d2 a . Realized in Cartesian coordinates, the field is

We are now halfway to the solution: the details of the problem are completely specified,

and proceeding from here without error will lead to the desired result. From here, we can

change the integration variables to x = x x and y = y y, and learn that there is no

dependence of the field on the x-y position in the plane and that the x- and y-components

vanish because the integrals are odd. (These two properties can be argued from symmetry

from the beginning.) This leaves

The integrals can be done in either order, and are not too hard (even for Mathematica). But,

although we are given that the sheet is in the x-y plane, since we know that the position

in the plane may be taken to be the origin, we can also use polar coordinates and write

where the angular integral is trivial and the radial integral is a simple power, Either way,

the direction is +

2. Suppose that, while remaining radial with linear superposition, instead of scaling with

distance as 1/r 2 the force between charges varies as 1/r 2+ . Recompute the electric field of

(this involves two Beta-function integrals). Since (1 + x) = x (x), this is in the end the

same result.

3. What is the cyclic sum a (b
) + b (
a) +
(a b) ? Is this expression

symmetric or antisymmetric (or otherwise) in a, b, and
? What does your result say about

the associativity of cross products?

Using the expansion of double cross products (second useful formula on the front left inside

cover page)

a (b
) + b (
a) +
(a b)

= b (a
)
(a b) +
(a b) a(b
) + a (b
) b (a
) = 0.

This is sometimes called the Jacobi identity.

With all those s, you might suspect that antisymmetric would show up, and you might

be right. There are six permutations of the three objects a, b,
, and a fully symmetrized

expression involves all six, with all + signs to be symmetric and with appropriate + or

signs to be antisymmetric. But, since the cross product changes sign when order is reversed,

our expression is equivalent to

a (b
) + b (
a) +
(a b)

= 12 [ a (b
) a (
b) + b (
a) b (a
) +
(a b)
(b a) ],

all the pieces to be completely antisymmetric. On the other hand, the fully symmetric

combination (all + signs) plus the fully antisymmetric combination is equal to the original expression, which vanishes: the symmetric combination is equal to the antisymmetric

combination. So, it is both.

Note that from the first result,

a (b
) (a b)
= b (a
) 6= 0,

and so cross products are not associative. This means that the expression a b

with no parentheses has no meaning and should never appear in a sensible mathematical

construction.

But, this is only part of the answer: as you might suspect, we cant ignore the singularity at

r = 0. Regularizing by replacing r with (r 2 + 2 )1/2, the same sequence of operations gives

rj

As ! 0, the first term is what was obtained above ignoring the singularity, regularized near

the origin; and the second contains the function that we obtained in class from r (x/r 3 ):

as ! 0 it goes to zero as 2 for r 6= 0; for r = 0 it diverges as 1/3 ; and it integrates to give

The zeroes of sin x occur at x = n for any integer n, but only n 1 are inside the domain of

integration. The derivative of sin x is cos n = ( 1)n , always 1 in absolute value. The name

(p) of the function that is the sum of 1/np is not important if you have the sum. The sum

converges for p > 1 but the function can be analytically continued; (0) = 1+1+1+ = 12

and ( 1) = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + =
