Order Paper Nowa. Determine the electric field E¯ on the z axis inside and outside the sphere.

b. Determine the electric displacement D¯ on the z axis inside and outside

the sphere.

c. Give the continuity condition for the normal component of the displace- ment vector D¯ and verify that this is fulfilled in this case.

Hint: Utilize formula (8.31) and apply formulas (10.22) and (10.54).

d. Show that ∇· D¯ = ρ f . Accordingly, the source of D¯ is free charge. Explain why D¯ is finite despite the fact that only a bound charge exists

in this case.
