1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You can find the problem in Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics 3rd edition. Chapter 10.19.


I already calculated the transmission coefficients, but mine are fourth of those given by Jackson. I do not know why.

My calculation is based on Problem 10.18. I use dipole moments approximation.

I hope someone can help me correct my error. Thank you very much!

Does that site violate the publisher's copyright on Jackson?

Oh my god! That is just a photo. If so, I will tell him to delete it.

One Big problem with Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics


I have solved this problem. Oh... I should have said I found my problem. I did not read the book carefully enough. Thank you, guys!
