1. Given that D= 2rcosa - (sin/3r)az in cylindrical coordinates, find the flux crossing the portion
of z= 0 plane defined by r a, 0 /2. Assume flux positive in the a z direction.

2. In cylindrical coordinates, the disk ra, z= 0 carries charge with nonuniform density s(r, ). Find
approximate values of D on the z axis: (a) very close to the disk (0<z<<a), (b) very far from the
disk (z>>a)

3. The region r a in spherical coordinates has an electric field intensity E= (r/3)ar. Verify both
sides of the divergence theorem for this vector field. For S, choose the spherical surface r= b a

4. Given that D= (10r3/4)ar (C/m2) in the region 0< r 3 m in cylindrical coordinates and D=
(810/4r)ar (C/m2) elsewhere, find the charge density.

5. Given that D= (10x3/3)ax (C/m2), evaluate both sides of the divergence theorem for the volume
of a cube, 2m on an edge, centered at the origin and with edges parallel to the axes.
