Problem Set 5
Due Friday, October 7, by 4pm in the homework locker
 Problem 1 [5 points]
Griffiths Problem 2.20
 Problem 2 [10 points]
Griffiths Problem 2.22  Do this problem by first finding the electric field E(r) from Gauss' law, and then doing the appropriate line integral to get the potential V(r).
 Problem 3 [5 points]
Griffiths Problem 2.24
 Problem 4 [10 points]
Griffiths Problem 2.25  parts (a) and (b) only. For part (a) solve for the most general case where the charge on the left is q_{1} and the charge on the right is q_{2}, and then consider the two special cases q_{2} = q_{1} and q_{2} = −q_{1}
 Problem 5 [5 points]
Griffiths Problem 2.30  part (b) only.
 Problem 6 [10 points]
Griffiths Problem 2.34
