Solving for the distribution of charge where time-averaged potential is given

Monday, July 4th, 2011

by Sim P. Bantayan, MSPhysics I, MSU-IIT   Problem 1.5 The time-averaged potential of a neutral hydrogen atom is given by where q is the magnitude of the electronic charge, and being the Bohr radius. Find the distribution of charge( both continuous and discrete) that will give this potential and interpret your result physically.   […]

Verifying vector formulas using Levi-Civita: (Divergence & Curl of normal unit vector n)

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

By Sim P. Bantayan, MS Physics I, MSU-IIT Let , and where and .   1. Prove that . Proof: Now, . Since i=j for the divergence of normal unit vector n, but (i=j). Moreover, for three dimensions, , so Therefore, .   2. Prove that . Proof: . Since i=j for the curl of normal unit vector n, […]
