GR0877 Problem 90

PROBLEM STATEMENT: This problem is still being typed.

SOLUTION: (D) For a<r<b one has \displaystyle \varphi(r) = -\int_a^r E dr = -\int_a^r \frac{Q}{4 \pi \epsilon_0} \frac{dr}{r^2} =  \frac{Q}{4 \pi \epsilon_0} \left( \frac{1}{r} - \frac{1}{a} \right); for r>b \displaystyle \varphi(r) = -\int_a^b E dr - \int_b^r E dr = -\int_a^b \frac{Q}{4 \pi \epsilon_0} \frac{dr}{r^2} - 0 = \frac{Q}{4 \pi \epsilon_0} \left( \frac{1}{b} - \frac{1}{a} \right).

    For problems like this with two parts of the solution, solve for the part of the solution with the most variance in answers. for this one you immediately get the answer when you solve for Region II, whereas if you solve for Region I you have four to choose from and no choice but to waste more time.

    All except D are discontinuous at r=b, so you can solve this one immediately using elimination. b also shouldn’t show up in region 1 equations.

    Noting that the region ii value should be a nonzero constant leaves D and E. Obviously b shouldn’t show up in the region i equation which leaves D.

    Why doesn’t potential go to zero if we go to infinity?
