Solved Problems

1.     A solid elemental dielectric with 3 × 1028 atoms/m3 shows an electronic polarizability of 10−40 F-m2. Assuming the internal electric field to be a Lorentz field, calculate the dielectric constant of the material.

 

(Set-3–Sept. 2007), (Set-1–May 2004), (Set-4–Nov. 2004), (Set-1–May 2003)

Sol: Number density of dielectric atoms, N = 3 × 1028/m3

Electronic polarizability, αe = 10−40 F-m2

Calculate the dielectric constant, r = ?
