Homework Help: Jackson 6.5c

  1. Jan 27, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I need some guidance concerning Jackson 6.5c. Specifically I cannot get the -1/3 factor that the statement says I should.

    2. Relevant equations
    Solutions to part a and b which are given in the problem statement.


    3. The attempt at a solution
    -I started from the volume integral of the curl of (phi * H)
    -Introduced a potential of the form: Ez.
    -and by a succession of vector identities given on the cover of Jackson along with equation 6.108 was able to come to [E x (volume integral) (z x J)].

    Now:
    -How can I convert the volume integral to m so that I get the right factors.
    -I tried to use the method on page 185 but without luck.

    Thanks for your help in advance
