Update from TA: For P5, a note (in red) is added to show 2.5hr in the space ship frame is obtained without applying time dilation directly (some of you got 1.6hr instead).

Additional note on problem 2: this problem has many solutions. A good discussion of the issues is on pages 405-407 of the book by Saslow (see syllabus). Note than inside a thin slab one always has H=-M because of geometric demagnetization effects, and hence B=0. This is unrelated to superconductivity.

Note from the instructor: The 'tricky point' in problem 5 of set 1 is related to footnote 25 on page 381 of the book. Those interested can optionally follow up on the footnote.

Office Hours
modified 27-Sep-2017 at 12:14PM by Oriol T. Valls

Office Hours by the Prof. will be on Mo and We after class (2:15 to 3:15) in room Tate 130-25

To find Tate 130-25 go to the first floor and use the misspelled signs to find the door to the Men's room. Across from it there is a door marked: "Fire alarm panel".
Go through it and you will find a hallway. Follow it to the end and you will find 130-25

Office hours by the TA (Mengxing Ye) will be on Fr, same time, but in room Tate 201-03. To find it, go up to the second floor and through the doors marked "Authorized personnel only." Room 201-03 is the first one to your right.

Students for whom these times are impossible should request an appointment.

Any comments or complaints about Tate signs should be directed to Kevin Ross kmr@umn.edu
