Homework Help: Dielectric and potencial

  1. Sep 30, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have the following problem regarding to dielectric and potencial


    Consider 2 conductive bars parallel with a distance ā€œdā€ between them (smal distance compared to the size of the bars), connected to diference of potencial Vo.The space between the bars is filed with a constant dielectric material epsilon = epsilon (z), in the way that epsilon(0)=epsilon 1. The electrostatic potencial between the 2 bars is :

    where K is a constant that is determined experiamentally.

    Determine the following:

    1) The electrostatic potencial V(z) in the region between the bars.
    2) the dependence of the constant dielectric of the variable z , to be consistent with (*)
    3) The free density charge of the conductors
    4) The vector of polarization P and the polarization charges of the dielectric.
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
