The behavior of electric and magnetic waves can be fully described by a set
of four equations (which we have learned already).

And the constitutive relations:

(6.3.1)
B  H
(6.3.2)
J E
(6.3.3)
They relate the electromagnetic field to the properties of the material, in
which the field exists. Together with the Maxwell’s equations, the
constitutive relations completely describe the electromagnetic field.
Even the EM fields in a nonlinear media can be described through a
nonlinearity existing in the constitutive relations.

current density is much greater than the displacement current density. Show
that the Maxwell’s equations can be put in a form of a Diffusion equation in this
material.

Maxwell’s equations
Example 6.2: Solve the diffusion equation for the case of the magnetic flux
density Bx(z,t) near a planar vacuum-copper interface, assuming for copper:  =
0 and  = 5.8 x 107 S/m. Assume that a 60-Hz time-harmonic EM signal is
applied.
Assuming ejt time-variation, the diffusion equation is transformed to the
ordinary differential equation:

(6.6.1)
Where z is the normal coordinate to the boundary. Assuming a variation in
the z-direction to be Bx(z) = B0e-z, we write:

Maxwell’s equations
The magnitude of the magnetic flux density decays exponentially in the z
direction from the surface into the conductor
Bx ( z)  B0e z
where
   f 0    60  4 107  5.8 107  117.2m1
The quantity  = 1/ is called a “skin depth” - the
distance over which the current (or field) falls to 1/e of
its original value.
For copper,  = 8.5 mm.

Poynting’s Theorem
The Poynting’s Theorem states that the power that leaves a region is
equal to the temporal decay in the energy that is stored within the
volume minus the power that is dissipated as heat within it – energy
conservation.

Poynting’s Theorem
Example 6.4: Using the Poynting’s Theorem,
calculate the power that is dissipated in the
resistor as heat. Neglect the magnetic field that
is confined within the resistor and calculate its
value only at the surface. Assume that the
conducting surfaces at the top and the bottom of
the resistor are equipotential and the resistor’s
radius is much less than its length.
The magnitude of the electric field is
E  V0 L
(6.13.1)
and it is in the direction of the current.

Poynting’s Theorem
The Poynting’s vector
S  EH
(6.14.1)
is into the resistor. There is NO energy stored in the
resistor. The magnitude of the current density is in the
direction of a current and, therefore, the electric field.

Poynting’s Theorem
Example 6.5: Using Poynting’s Theorem,
calculate the power that is flowing
through the surface area at the radial
edge of a capacitor. Neglect the ohmic
losses in the wires, assume that the
radius of the plates is much greater than
the separation between them: a >> b.
Assuming the electric field E is uniform and confined between the plates, the total
electric energy stored in the capacitor is:

The total magnetic energy stored in the capacitor is zero.

This is the only nonzero term on the RHS of PT since an ideal capacitor does not
dissipate energy.
We express next the time-varying magnetic field intensity in terms of the
displacement current. Since no conduction current exists in an ideal capacitor:

Time-harmonic EM fields
Frequently, a temporal variation of EM fields is harmonic; therefore,
we may use a phasor representation:
E ( x, y, z, t )  Re  E ( x, y, z )e jt 
(6.18.1)
H ( x, y, z, t )  Re  H ( x, y, z )e jt 
(6.18.2)
It may be a phase angle between the electric and the magnetic fields
incorporated into E(x,y,z) and H(x,y,z).

What is diffusion equation?
The diffusion equation is a partial differential equation which
describes density fluctuations in a material undergoing diffusion.
Diffusion is the movement of
particles of a substance from an
area of high concentration to an
area of low concentration, resulting
in the uniform distribution of the
substance.
Similarly, a flow of free charges in a material, where a charge difference
between two locations exists, can be described by the diffusion equation.
