PROBLEM:

(a) For the three capacitor geometries in Problem 1.6 calculate the total electrostatic energy and express

it alternatively in terms of the equal and opposite charges Q and -Q placed on the conductors and the

potential difference between them.

(b) Sketch the energy density of the electrostatic field in each case as a function of the appropriate

linear coordinate.

SOLUTION:

(a) For a simple capacitor, the total energy is given by W = QV. In problem 1.6, we found the

following results.

Qd Q

Parallel plates capacitor: V = and E=

A 0 A 0

1 Q

Concentric spheres capacitor: V =

Concentric cylinders capacitor: V =

and E=

2 r 0 L

It is straight-forward to substitute these equations into the energy equation and find the following:

Q2 d V 2 A 0

Parallel plates capacitor: W = and W =

2 A 0 2d

(b) The energy density is defined as w= 2 E 2 . A simple substitution of the fields found in problem 1.6
