PHYSICS DEPARTMENT

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON

Ph.D. Qualifying Examination, PART II

Mechanics and Electromagnetism

Thursday, April 5, 2001, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The examination papers are numbered in the upper right-hand corner of each page.

Print and then sign your name in the spaces provided on this page. For identi

cation

purposes, be sure to submit this page together with your answers when the exam is

nished. Be sure to place both the exam number and the question number on any

additional pages you wish to have graded.

There are six equally weighted questions, each beginning on a new page. Read all six

questions before attempting any answers.

Begin each answer on the same page as the question, but continue on additional blank

pages if necessary. Write only on one side of each page. Each page should contain work

related to only one problem. If you need extra space for another problem, start a new page.

If you need to leave your seat, wait until everyone else is seated before approaching the

proctor.

Calculators may be used only for arithmetic. Calculators with stored equations

or text are not allowed. Dictonaries may be used if they have been approved by the

proctor before the examination begins. No other papers or books may be used.

When you have

nished, come to the front of the room and hand your examination

paper to the proctor

rst put all problems in numerical order and staple them together.

Please make sure you follow all instructions carefully. If you fail to follow instructions,

or to hand your exam paper in on time, an appropriate number of points may be

subtracted from your

nal score.

Problem 1

A linear symmetric molecule consists of three atoms on one straight line as shown in the

gure. The forces between the molecules are modeled by two identical springs of spring

constant k. Consider only vibrations along the line of the molecules.

b. Find the characteristic frequencies of the moelcule's oscillation.

c. Describe briey the motion associated with each frequency.

Problem 2

A particle of mass m moves on a circular orbit of radius r = 1= in the central force

eld

given by the potential

(r) = ;k exp(r;r)

k and are constants.

b. Show that the orbit at r = 1= is stable to radial perturbations.

c. Considering other values of r, for what range of r's are circular orbits stable?

Problem 3

A point mass m can slide without friction on a circular wire loop of radius a, as shown in

the

gure below. The loop rotates about the z-axis with angular velocity , and gravity

acts in the negative z-direction.

a. Determine the system's Lagrangian, adopting the angle as the generalized coordinate.

b. Determine the equilibrium positions.

c. Discuss the stability of the equilibrium positions determine an 0 such that there

is a change of stability at = 0.

d. For > 0, determine the frequency of the small oscillations about the stable

equilibrium position.

Problem 4

A particle with charge q moves along the z axis in the +z direction with a constant speed v

that is a substantial fraction of the speed of light. It crosses z = 0 at time t = 0. At time

t = 0, derive an expression for the electric

eld E (x) produced by this particle.

HINT: You may choose units with c = 1 if you so wish.

Problem 5

A dielectric medium can be viewed as a collection of classical damped harmonic oscillators.

Assume that for each oscillator an electron is connected to a

xed ion by a harmonic force

of frequency !0 and damping constant 0. There are n such oscillators per unit volume.

a. Write down the equation of motion for the electron when driven by a monochromatic

electric

eld of frequency !.

c. Free electrons in a metal can be considered as a limiting case of this model. Consider

the appropriate limiting case and hence determine expressions for the frequency ranges

in which metals become (i) transparent to electromagnetic waves, (ii) good reectors of

electromagnetic waves. (You may ignore damping.)

Problem 6

As shown in the

gure, a charge +q is placed at each of the four locations x 1 = (1 0 0),

x 2 = (;1 0 0), x 3 = (0 1 0), x 4 = (0 ;1 0), and a charge ;2q at each of the additional

locations x 5 = (0 0 1), x 6 = (0 0 ;1). Find the asymptotic form, up to a multiplicative

constant, of the electric

eld E (x )|i.e., for jx j 1, E (x ) has a form

You are asked to

nd E 0(x ), but not C .
