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 […]

### Prove Green’s Reciprocation Theorem

Monday, July 4th, 2011Author: Kayrol Ann B. Vacalares MS-Physics 1, MSU-Iligan Institute of Technology ______________________________________________________________ Prove Green’s Reciprocation Theorem: If is the potential due to a volume-charge density within a volume V and a surface charge density on the conducting surface S bounding the volume V, while is the potential due to another charge distribution and , […]

### Curl of the product of a scalar and a vector using Levi-Civita

Friday, July 1st, 2011By Eliezer Estrecho To prove this formula, we use the following: Where: and Using the equation above: We can factor out in the first term to give: Note that for the second term, the permutation of indices are odd, rearranging them to ijk will give the negative: Thus, About the author: Eliezer Estrecho is currently […]
