I tried to find the charge distribution using the given potential but couldn't produce the correct result. Also, Gauss's Law doesn't help, as the electric flux is 0 but we don't have any symmetry. Can someone please shine a light on this? Thanks in advance..
I have heard many times that it does not matter where you put the zero to calculate the potential energy and then ##L=T-V##. But mostly what we are doing is taking potential energy negative like in an atom for electron or a mass in gravitational field and then effectively adding it to kinetic...
I'm working on the time-dependent Schrodinger equation, and come across something I don't understand regarding notation, which is not specific to TDSE but the Schrodinger formalism in general. Let's say we have a non-trivial potential. There is a stage in the development of the TDSE where we...
I tried finding the potential due to a small element dM of the ring lets say dV, the summation of dV for all the dM's of the ring will give the potential at the point P, but since every element dM of the ring is at a different distance from the point P I am unable to come up with a differential...
I have a basic question in elementary quantum mechanics:
Consider the Hamiltonian $$H = -\frac{\hbar^2}{2m}\partial^2_x - V_0 \delta(x),$$ where ##\delta(x)## is the Dirac function. The eigen wave functions can have an odd or even parity under inversion. Amongst the even-parity wave functions...
I've marked the right answers.
They mainly indicate at power carried by the particles being zero, and here is my doubt- why should it be zero? Shouldn't it have some definite value?
I do understand that the kinetic energy is max at the y=0 and potential energy is max at y=A, but I don't know...
I think the right choice is c. I'll pass on my reasoning to you:
We can think that if the formula of the potential is
V(r)=\dfrac{kq}{r}
If r tends to infinity, then V(r)=0.
But the correct answer is d).
I thought the right choice was d). But when it comes to the solutions, it is b) and I don't understand why.
My reasoning would be: the potential at a point is the work that the electric field does to transport a charge from infinity to that point, so if the field is zero, it does no work and...
I am trying to calculate the interaction energy of two interpenetrating spheres of uniform charge density. Here is my work:

a.) The potential is a delta function, so ##V \left( r \right) = \frac {\hbar^2} {2\mu} \gamma \delta \left(r-a \right)##, therefore ##V \left( r \right) = \frac {\hbar^2} {2\mu} \gamma ## at ##r=a##, and ##V \left( r \right) = 0## otherwise. I've tried a few different approaches:
1.) In...
I tried to attempt it by applying KVL to both the loops.
I tried to find a possible charge distribution for the capacitors. I guess this is right.

but the solution is given as:
Where am I wrong?
There is the equation:
μ= Eu +Eg/2 +3/4kβTln(mu/mc)
Eg is the band gap, but I don't understand what Eu stands for and how we can calculate it? Could it be the valence band?

Assume that an infinite metallic plate A lies in the xy-plane, and another infinite metallic plate B is parallel to A and at height z = h.
The potential of plate A is 0, and the potential of plate B is constant and equal to V.
So, there is a uniform electrostatic field E between plates A and B...
The final result will only differ in its sign, but this is crucial. Having a positively, radially oriented electric field ##\textbf{E}##, I understand that the sign of the integral should be positive (## - (- A) = A##), but it is not! How and why is this the case? A line integral where the...
Hello, I have a problem where I'm supposed to calculate the charge distribution ρ. I need to calculate it by applying the Laplacian operator to the potential Θ. The potential is the function: q*exp(-αr)/r

Hi! I need help with this problem.
When the outer shell is grouded, its potential goes to zero, ##V_2=0## and so does it charge, right? ##-Q=0##. So the field would be the one produced by the inner shell ##E=\frac{Q}{4\pi\epsilon_0 R_1^2}##.
When the inner shell is grounded, I think that...
I know the eigen value of energy in a Morse potential is
Evib= ħωo(v+ 1/2) - ħωoxe(v+ 1/2)2
but is this the same for every Morse potential, given that the masses μ of the diatomic molecules are the same?
The two potentials are these:
I first found the equilibrium points taking the derivative of the potential. ##U'(x)=U_0 a\sin(ax)##, and the equilibrum is when the derivative is 0, so ##U_0 a\sin(ax)=0## so ##x=0## or ##x=\pi/a##. Taking the second derivative ##U''(x)=U_0a^2 \cos(ax)## I find that ##x=0## is a minimum point...
I see that DC power supply have voltage between it's + & - and its 24V.
However, there is no voltage with ground.
I don't understand - if device's "point" has some potential, why doesn't it give some voltage with ground (which has ~0 potential)
I tried this with phoenix contact...
My question might sound stupid to you but please clear my confusions.

dA = 2θr.dr
