HW2 solution

Additional note on problem 2: this problem has many solutions. A good discussion of the issues is on pages 405407 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.
