## Sketch the electric field around an electric dipole. Include equipotential lines and the direction of the field. 2

## Sketch the Electric Flux Density around a sharp conducting rod, raised to a potential V.Explain why this is suitable for a lightning conductor.

### Taking part of the conductor as a sphere with radius a then the field at the surface of the conductor is... 3  4  5

## Solve using boundary conditions. ### Important to remember the how the components relate for two different dielectrics. 6

## How would you solve this problem? ### First, calculate the LHS of Gauss's law, which looks at the surface area. If the surface is spherically symmetrical, the flux is leaving radially and the magnitude is uniform, so D can be considered a constant and factored out of the integral. The resulting integral simply calculates the total surface area. Next, you look at the RHS of the equation and calculate the integral of the charge density over the volume v. Since the charge density is constant it can be factored out of the equation. The two results are equated to eachother to find D. The final expression needs to include the vector direction. This is done by multiplying D by the unit vector of r. You also need to remember to include the radial direction, which in this case is negative. To find the electric flux density outside of r, the calculations need to adjusted. RHS of the equation stays the same, but for the LHS r becomes a, since the spherical cloud is limited by radius a, it doesn't go any further... 7

## If you need to apply Gauss's law to a sphere and there is spherical symmetry, what can you assume about the equation describing the total flux leaving the Gaussian surface?

### Since the sphere is symmetrical all around, the flux leaves the surface radially. As a result, the dot product of D and dS is essentially equal to the product of the magnitude of the two. With the magnitude being uniform, D can be taken out of the integral as a constant for the fixed radius (if the magnitude of D changed this wouldn't be possible).

8 ### The figure shows the current carrying wire and an element dl somewhere along the wire at a distance r from the point at which the magnetic flux density B is required. The Biot Savart law gives the direction (out of the page in this case) from the cross product in the equation. It also gives the magnitude of dB due to just that small element of current I. 9
