Poynting vector. Conservation theorem.

I'm doing a problem where I have to calculate the electric and magnetic fields. I've found B=0, so S=ExB=0. Has it got any meaning?

Then I calculate the energy density e=E^2 + B^2 = E^2. And finally I have to verify the conservation theorem grad(S)+de/dt=0 for points out of the particle's trayectory. I do this part but the conservation theorem is not satisfied. What is the significance of "out of the particle's trayectory"? Or maybe I've got wrong expressions for E and B...

Thanks.

Your field is static and does not transfer energy.

You can assume that there are no charges in the (infinitesimal) volume where you verify the relation.

So, when I do the time derivative of the energy density it must be zero. Then, I think I haven't got the correct expressions for the fields.

Thanks a lot for your help!
