Proving properties of electric fields using Gauss’s Theorem

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Author: CHRISTINE ADELLE L. RICO Use Gauss’s theorem and to prove the following: (a) Any excess charge placed on a conductor must lie entirely on its surface. (A conductor by definition contains charges capable of moving freely under the action of applied electric fields.) Solution: Suppose that the field were initially nonzero. Since this is […]

Verifying a Vector Identity (BAC-CAB) using Levi-Civita

Monday, June 27th, 2011

Author: CHRISTINE ADELLE L. RICO Here is another method of verifying a vector formula using the Levi-Civita symbol. Levi-Civita symbol is a tensor of rank three and is defined by +1 if the indices are in even permutation of , -1 if the indices are in odd permutation, and 0 if any two indices are […]
