1. Four particles, (one of charge q, one of charge 3q, and two of

charge 2q) are placed as shown in the figure, each a distance d from the origin. Find the electric potential at a point P far from the

2. Two concentric conducting spheres of inner and outer radii a and b, respectively, carry charges ±Q. The empty space between the spheres is

half-filled by a hemispherical shell of dielectric (of permittivity ), as shown in the figure.

a) Find the electric field everywhere between the spheres.

b) Calculate the charge distribution on the surface of the inner sphere.

c) Calculate the polarization-charge density induced on the surface of the dielectric at r = a.

3. A dielectric sphere of radius a has a polarization = ! . Find the electric field and electric displacement at distance from center, a) for < (inside the sphere), and b) for > (outside the

sphere)

4. A

point charge q is embedded in a dielectric of

permittivity , at distance below the surface, as shown in the figure. The surface of the dielectric is at

= 0 .

a) Find the electrostatic potential at points in ( < 0 ) and outside ( > 0 ) the dielectric.

b) Find the polarization charge density on the surface ( = 0 ) of the dielectric.

5. A thick spherical shell of inner radius a and outer radius b is made of dielectric

material with a “frozen-in” polarization =

the distance from the center. (There is no free charge in the problem.) Find the electric field in all three regions ( < , < < , and > ) by two different methods:
