Introduction to Electromagnetic Fields
Electromagnetics is the study of the effect of charges at rest and charges in
motion.
Some special cases of electromagnetics:
◦ Electrostatics: charges at rest
◦ Magnetostatics: charges in steady motion (DC)
◦ Electromagnetic waves: waves excited by charges in time-varying motion
Introduction to Electromagnetic Fields

are connected by a “field.”
Introduction to Electromagnetic Fields
When an event in one place has an effect on something at a different location, we
talk about the events as being connected by a “field”.
A field is a spatial distribution of a quantity; in general, it can be either scalar or
vector in nature.
Introduction to Electromagnetic Fields
Electric and magnetic fields:
◦ Are vector fields with three spatial components.
◦ Vary as a function of position in 3D space as well as time.
◦ Are governed by partial differential equations derived from
Maxwell’s equations.
Introduction to Electromagnetic Fields
A scalar is a quantity having only an amplitude
(and possibly phase).
Examples: voltage, current, charge, energy, temperature

## A vector is a quantity having direction in addition

to amplitude (and possibly phase).
Examples: velocity, acceleration, force, lift, weight, momentum, drag

vacuum) 𝑐 ≈ 3 × 108 m/s

## ◦ Permeability of free space

𝜇0 = 4𝜋 × 10−7 H/m

## ◦ Permittivity of free space:

Coulomb’s Law and electric field
intensity
(SECOND CHAPTER)
Coulomb's law states that the force between two very small objects
(point charges) separated in a vacuum or free space by a distance, which
is large enough compared to their size and is directly proportional to the
magnitude of their charge and inversely proportional to the square of the
distance between them.
Point charge is an electric charge with no dimension or when the distance
between two charges is much bigger then the size of the charges.

## Charles Augustin de coulomb, an officer in the French army, performed an

elaborate series of experiments using a delicate Torsion balance to
determine the quantitively the force exerted between two objects, each
having a static charge of electricity.

Torsion Balance
Coulomb’s Law
Charge
Electrons and protons are characterized by a property by virtue of which
they exert force of attraction or repulsion on one another. This property
is called charge.
OR
It is the fundamental property of subatomic particle (electron, proton,
neutron), that they attract or repel each other.

## Charge can be of two types; positive or negative

Law of conservation of charge states that charge can neither be created Positive and negative charge
or destroyed but transferred.

## ENERGY AND POTENTIAL

Electric Field and Potential
 The electric field intensity was defined as the force on a unit test charge at
that point where we wish to find the value of the electric field intensity.
1. Coulomb’s Law
2. Gauss’s Law

 The electric field intensity, a vector field can be found directly from charge
distribution.
 Three different integrations are needed, one for each component.
 It could be desirable if we find some scalar function with a single integration
and then determine the electric field from that scalar.
 This function is known as potential or potential field
 Third method of finding electric field.
Potential Difference
Potential difference is defined as the work done in moving a unit test
charge from one point to another point.
Ohm’s law also states that a current through a conductor between two
points is directly proportional to the potential difference or voltage
across the two points.
OR
Potential difference is the work done per unit charge

To move the test charge against the electric field, we have to exert a Scalar Quantity
force equal and opposite in magnitude to that exerted by the field.
► We must expend energy or do work
To move the charge in the direction of the electric field, our energy
expenditure turns out to be negative.
► We do not do the work, the field does
Energy Expanded in Moving a Point charge in an Electric Field
To move a charge Q a distance dL in an electric field E, the force on Q arising from the
electric field is or the charge Q experiences a force F in an electric field is defined as
F𝐸 = 𝑄E
Work is defined as force acting over a distance. The unit of work is joules (J)
Work done (W) = Force (F) . Displacment(D)
The component of this force in the direction dL is 𝐹𝐸𝐿 = F𝐸 ⋅ a𝐿 = 𝑄E ⋅ a𝐿

The force that we apply must be equal and opposite to the force exerted by the field (No
acceleration)
𝐹appl = −𝑄E ⋅ a𝐿

## Differential work done by external source to Q is equal to 𝑑𝑊 = −𝑄E ⋅ a𝐿 𝑑𝐿 = −𝑄E ⋅ 𝑑L

• If E and L are perpendicular, the differential work will be zero ( E.D cos Ɵ )

## If we assume that the electric field is uniform

E1 = E2 = ⋯ = E6 𝑊 = −𝑄E ⋅ (ΔL1 + ΔL2 + ⋯ + ΔL6 )

L𝐵𝐴
Therefore
By parallelogram law
𝑊 = −𝑄E ⋅ L𝐵𝐴 (uniform E) (vectors add with each other and the sum is
vector directed from intial to final point)
The Line Integral
Since the summation can be interpreted as a line integral, the exact result for the uniform field
can be obtained as

𝑊 = −𝑄E ⋅ න 𝑑L (uniform E)

## 𝑊 = −𝑄E ⋅ L𝐵𝐴 (uniform E)

• For the case of uniform E, W does not depend on the particular path selected along which
the charge is carried

## Definition of Potential Difference and Potential

 Potential difference is measured in joules per coulomb (J/C). However, volt (V) is
defined as a more common unit.
 The potential difference between points A and B is:
𝐴
𝑉𝐴𝐵 = − න E ⋅ 𝑑L V
• VAB is positive if work is done in carrying the positive

Definition of Potential Difference and Potential
It is often convenient to speak of potential, or absolute potential, of a point rather than the
potential difference between two points.
For this purpose, we must first specify the reference point which we consider to have zero
potential.
The most universal zero reference point is “ground”, which means the potential of the
surface region of the earth.
Another widely used reference point is “infinity.”
For cylindrical coordinate, in discussing a coaxial cable, the outer conductor is selected
as the zero reference for potential.
If the potential at point A is VA and that at B is VB, then:
𝑉𝐴𝐵 = 𝑉𝐴 − 𝑉𝐵
The Potential Field of a Point Charge
In previous section we found an expression for the potential difference between two
points located at r = rA and r = rB in the field of a point charge Q placed at the origin:
𝑄 1 1
𝑉𝐴𝐵 = − = 𝑉𝐴 − 𝑉𝐵
4𝜋𝜀0 𝑟𝐴 𝑟𝐵
𝑟𝐴
𝑉𝐴𝐵 = − න 𝐸𝑟 𝑑𝑟 dl = -dr
𝑟𝐵
Where dl is the
distance towords
center

Any initial and final values of θ or Φ will not affect the answer. As long as the radial distance between rA and rB
is constant, any complicated path between two points will not change the results

This is because although dL has r, θ, and Φ components, the electric field E only has the radial r component.
The Potential Field of a Point Charge
The potential difference between two points in the field of a point charge depends only on
the distance of each point from the charge.
Thus, the simplest way to define a zero reference for potential in this case is to let V = 0
at infinity.
As the point r = rB recedes to infinity, the potential at rA becomes:
𝑉𝐴𝐵 = 𝑉𝐴 − 𝑉𝐵

Equipotential Surface
Equipotential surface is a surface composed of all those points having the
same value of potential.
No work is involved in moving a charge around on an equipotential surface.

The equipotential surfaces in the potential field of a point charge are spheres centered at the
point charge.
The equipotential surfaces in the potential field of a line charge are cylindrical surfaces axed at
the line charge.
The equipotential surfaces in the potential field of a sheet of charge are surfaces parallel with the
sheet of charge.

## The Potential Field of a System of Charges: Conservative Property

We will now prove, that for a system of charges, the potential is also independent of the
path taken.
Continuing the discussion, the potential field at the point r due to a single point charge
Q1 located at r1 is given by:
𝑄1
𝑉(r) =
4𝜋𝜀0 r − r1

The field is linear with respect to charge so that superposition is applicable. Thus, the potential arising from

Chapter 4 Energy and Potential

We have discussed two methods of determining potential: directly from the
electric field intensity by means of a line integral, or from the basic charge
distribution itself by a volume integral.

## Preliminary information is much more likely to consist a description of two

equipotential surface, and the goal is to find the electric field intensity.
Chapter 4 Energy and Potential

The general line-integral relationship between V and E is:

𝑉 = − නE ⋅ 𝑑L

𝑑𝑉 = −E ⋅ 𝑑L

Since the potential field information is more likely to be determined first, let us describe
the direction of ΔL (which leads to a maximum increase in potential) in term of potential
field.
Let aN be a unit vector normal to the equipotential surface and directed toward the
higher potential.
The electric field intensity is then expressed in terms of the potential as:

The Dipole
The dipole fields form the basis for the behavior of dielectric materials in electric field.
The dipole will be discussed now and will serve as an illustration about the importance
of the potential concept presented previously.

An electric dipole, or simply a dipole, is the name given to two point charges of equal
magnitude and opposite sign, separated by a distance which is small compared to the
distance to the point P at which we want to know the electric and potential fields.
Chapter 4 Energy and Potential

The Dipole
The distant point P is described by the spherical coordinates
r, θ, Φ = 90°.
The positive and negative point charges have separation d and described in rectangular
coordinates (0,0, 0.5d) and
(0,0,–0.5d).

Electric charges in motion constitute a current.
The unit of current is the ampere (A), defined as a rate of movement of charge passing
a given reference point (or crossing a given reference plane).

𝑑𝑄
𝐼=

## Current is defined as the motion of positive charges, although conduction in metals

takes place through the motion of electrons.
Current density J is defined, measured in amperes per square meter (A/m2).
Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

## Current and Current Density

The increment of current ΔI crossing an incremental surface ΔS
normal to the current density is:
Δ𝐼 = 𝐽𝑁 Δ𝑆

Δ𝐼 = J ⋅ ΔS

## Through integration, the total current is obtained:

𝐼 = න J ⋅ 𝑑S

## • An element of charge ΔQ = ρvΔSΔL moves along the x axis

• In the time interval Δt, the element of charge has moved a distance Δx
• The charge moving through a reference plane perpendicular to the direction of motion is ΔQ = ρvΔSΔx
Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

## Current and Current Density

The limit of the moving charge with respect to time is:
Δ𝐼 = 𝜌𝑣 Δ𝑆𝑣𝑥

## In terms of current density, we find:

𝐽𝑥 = 𝜌𝑣 𝑣𝑥

J = 𝜌𝑣 v

This last result shows clearly that charge in motion constitutes a current. We name it
here convection current.
J = ρvv is then called convection current density.
Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

Continuity of Current
The principle of conservation of charge:
“Charges can be neither created nor destroyed.”
But, equal amounts of positive and negative charge (pair of charges) may be
simultaneously created, obtained by separation, destroyed, or lost by recombination.

## 𝐼 = ර J ⋅ 𝑑S • The Continuity Equation in Closed Surface

𝑆

Any outward flow of positive charge must be balanced by a decrease of positive charge (or
perhaps an increase of negative charge) within the closed surface.
If the charge inside the closed surface is denoted by Qi, then the rate of decrease is –dQi/dt
and the principle of conservation of charge requires:

Metallic Conductors
The energy-band structure of three types of materials at 0 K is shown as follows:

Energy in the form of heat, light, or an electric field may raise the energy of the electrons of the
valence band, and in sufficient amount they will be excited and jump the energy gap into the
conduction band.
Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

Metallic Conductors
First let us consider the conductor.
Here, the valence electrons (or free conductive electrons) move under the influence of an electric field E.
An electron having a charge Q = –e will experiences a force:

F = −𝑒E
In free space, the electron would accelerate and continuously increase its velocity.

In the crystalline material, the progress of the electron is impeded by collisions with the lattice structure, and
a constant average velocity is soon attained.

This velocity vd is termed the drift velocity. It is linearly related to the electric field intensity by the mobility of
the electron in a given material. We designate mobility by the symbol μe, so that

## Conductor Properties and Boundary

Conditions
Property 1:
The charge density within a conductor is zero (ρv = 0) and the surface charge
density resides on the exterior surface.
Property 2:
In static conditions, no current may flow, thus the electric field intensity within
the conductor is zero (E = 0).

## Now our next concern is the fields external to the conductor.

The external electric field intensity and electric flux density are decomposed into the tangential
components and the normal components.
Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

## Conductor Properties and Boundary

Conditions
The tangential component of the electric field intensity is seen to be zero Et = 0  Dt = 0.

If not, then a force will be applied to the surface charges, resulting in their motion and no static conditions.

The normal component of the electric flux density leaving the surface is equal to the
surface charge density in coulombs per square meter (DN = ρS).

According to Gauss’s law, the electric flux leaving an incremental surface is equal
to the charge residing on that incremental surface.
The flux cannot penetrate into the conductor since the total field there is zero.
It must leave the surface normally.

Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

Semiconductors
In an intrinsic semiconductor material, such as pure germanium or silicon,
two types of current carriers are present: electrons and holes.
The electrons are those from the top of the filled valence band which have
received sufficient energy to cross the small forbidden band into
conduction band.

## The forbidden-band energy gap in typical semiconductors is of the order of 1 eV.

The vacancies left by the electrons represent unfilled energy states in the valence band.
They may also move from atom to atom in the crystal.
The vacancy is called a hole, and the properties of semiconductor are described by
treating the hole as a positive charge of e, a mobility μh, and an effective mass
comparable to that of the electron.
Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

Semiconductors
The conductivity of a semiconductor is described as:

𝜎 = −𝜌𝑒 𝜇𝑒 + 𝜌ℎ 𝜇ℎ

As temperature increases, the mobilities decrease, but the charge densities increase
very rapidly.
As a result, the conductivity of silicon increases by a factor of 100 as the temperature
increases from about 275 K to 330 K.
Chapter 5 Current and Conductors

Semiconductors
The conductivity of the intrinsic semiconductor increases with
temperature, while that of a metallic conductor decreases with
temperature.
The intrinsic semiconductors also satisfy the point form of Ohm's
law: the conductivity is reasonably constant with current density
and with the direction of the current density.

CHAPTER 6
capacitance
Chapter 6 Dielectrics and Capacitance

## The Nature of Dielectric Materials

A dielectric material in an electric field can be viewed as a free-space
arrangement of microscopic electric dipoles, a pair of positive and negative
charges whose centers do not quite coincide.
These charges are not free charges, not contributing to the conduction
process. They are called bound charges, can only shift positions slightly in
response to external fields.
All dielectric materials have the ability to store electric energy. This storage
takes place by means of a shift (displacement) in the relative positions of the
bound charges against the normal molecular and atomic forces.
Chapter 6 Dielectrics and Capacitance

## The Nature of Dielectric Materials

The mechanism of this charge displacement differs in various
dielectric materials.
Polar molecules have a permanent displacement existing
between the centers of “gravity” of the positive and negative
charges, each pair of charges acts as a dipole.
Dipoles are normally oriented randomly, and the action of the
external field is to align these molecules in the same direction.

Nonpolar molecules does not have dipole arrangement until after a field is applied.
The negative and positive charges shift in opposite directions against their mutual
attraction and produce a dipole which is aligned with the electric field.
Chapter 6 Dielectrics and Capacitance

## The Nature of Dielectric Materials

Either type of dipole may be described by its dipole moment p:
p = 𝑄d

If there are n dipoles per unit volume and we deal with a volume Δv, then there are nΔv dipoles in
a volume Δv. The total dipole moment is obtained by the vector sum
𝑛Δ𝑣

ptotal = ෍ p𝑖
𝑖=1

If the dipoles are aligned in the same general direction, Ptotal may have signification value
We now define the polarization P as the dipole moment per unit volume:
𝑛Δ𝑣
1
P = lim
Δ𝑣→0 Δ𝑣
෍ p𝑖 = 𝑛p = 𝑛𝑄d
𝑖=1

The immediate goal is to show that the bound-volume charge density acts like the free-volume
charge density in producing an external field ► We shall obtain a result similar to Gauss’s law.
Chapter 6 Dielectrics and Capacitance

## The Nature of Dielectric Materials

Take a dielectric containing nonpolar molecules. No molecules has p, and P = 0 throughout the material.
Somewhere in the interior of the dielectric we select an incremental surface element ΔS, and apply an electric
field E.
The electric field produces a moment p = Qd in each molecule, such that p and d make an angle θ with ΔS.

Due to E, any positive charges initially lying below the surface ΔS and within ½dcosθ must have crossed ΔS going upward.
Any negative charges initially lying above the surface ΔS and within ½dcosθ must have crossed ΔS going downward.
Chapter 6 Dielectrics and Capacitance

## The Nature of Dielectric Materials

For n molecules/m3, the net total charge (positive and negative) which crosses the elemental
surface in upward direction is:

## Δ𝑄𝑏 = 𝑛𝑄𝑑 cos 𝜃 ⋅ Δ𝑆 Δ𝑄𝑏 = 𝑛𝑄d ⋅ ΔS

The notation Qb means the bound charge. In terms of the polarization, we have:

Δ𝑄𝑏 = P ⋅ ΔS

## If we interpret ΔS as an element of a closed surface, then the direction of ΔS is

outward.
The net increase in the bound charge within the closed surface is:

𝑄𝑏 = − ර P ⋅ 𝑑S
𝑆
Chapter 6 Dielectrics and Capacitance

## The Nature of Dielectric Materials

Seeing some similarity to Gauss’s law, we may now generalize the definition of electric flux
density so that it applies to media other than free space.
We write Gauss’s law in terms of ε0E and QT, the total enclosed charge (bound charge plus free
charge):

𝑄𝑇 = ර 𝜀0 E ⋅ 𝑑S
𝑆

𝑄𝑇 = 𝑄𝑏 + 𝑄

## Combining the last three equations:

𝑄 = 𝑄𝑇 − 𝑄𝑏 = ර (𝜀0 E + P) ⋅ 𝑑S
𝑆

## D = 𝜀0 E + P There is an added term to D when a

material is polarized

For equations with volume charge densities, we now have:

𝑄𝑏 = න 𝜌𝑏 𝑑𝑣 𝑄 = න 𝜌𝑣 𝑑𝑣
𝑣 𝑣

𝑄𝑇 = න 𝜌𝑇 𝑑𝑣

With the help of the divergence theorem, we may transform the equations into equivalent divergence
relationships:
𝛻 ⋅ P = −𝜌𝑏

𝛻 ⋅ D = 𝜌𝑣

𝛻 ⋅ 𝜀0 E = 𝜌𝑇
Chapter 6 Dielectrics and Capacitance

## The Nature of Dielectric Materials

To utilize the new concepts, it is necessary to know the relationship between E and P.
This relationship will be a function of the type of material. We will limit the discussion to isotropic materials for
which E and P are linearly related.
In an isotropic material, the vectors E and P are always parallel, regardless of the orientation of the field.

## The linear relationship between P and E can be described as:

P = 𝜒𝑒 𝜀0 E

D = 𝜀0 E + 𝜒𝑒 𝜀0 E = (𝜒𝑒 + 1)𝜀0 E

## We now define: χe : electric susceptibility,

material present:

## Boundary Conditions Between a Conductor and a Dielectric

The boundary conditions existing at the interface between a conductor and a dielectric are much
simpler than those previously discussed.
First, we know that D and E are both zero inside the conductor.
Second, the tangential E and D components must both be zero to satisfy:

රE ⋅ 𝑑L = 0 D = 𝜀E

Finally, the application of Gauss’s law shows once more that both D and E are normal to the
conductor surface and that
DN = ρS and EN = ρS/ε.
The boundary conditions for conductor–free space are valid also for conductor–dielectric
boundary, with ε0 replaced by ε.

Capacitance
Let us consider two conductors embedded in a homogenous dielectric.
Conductor M2 Carries a tota positive charge Q and M1 carries an equal negative
charge. Thus the total charge of the system is zero.
We now know that the charge is carried on the surface as the surface charge
density and also that the electric field is normal to that conductor surface. Each
conductor is moreover, an equipotential surface.

The electric flux is directed from M2 to M1, thus M2 is at the more positive
potential.
Works must be done to carry a positive charge from M1 to M2.

## Let us assign V0 as the potential difference between M2 and M1.

Magnetic Field of a Point Charge
Given a point charge q, we know that it generates an electric field regardless of weather it is moving

If the charge is in fact moving then the charge is also generates magnetic field.

The magnetic field generated by the charge however does not behave in the same way the electric field
of the charge does
Biot Savart Law
Biot and Savart recognized that a conductor carrying a steady current
produces a force on a magnet.

Biot and Savart Produced an equation that gives the magnetic field at
some point in space in terms of the current that produces a field.

## Biot-Savart law says that if a wire carries a steady current I, the

magnetic field dB at point P associated with an element of conductor
length ds has the following properties.
The Vector dB is perpendicular to both ds (the direction of the
current I) and to the unit vector r directed from the element ds
to the point
Biot Savart Law
It states that any point P the magnitude of the magnetic field intensity produced by the
differential element is proportional to the product of the current, the magnitude of the
differential length, and the sine of the angle lying between the filament and a line
connecting the filament to the point P at which the field is desired; also the magnitude of
magnetic field intensity is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the
differential element to the point P.

The direction of the magnetic field intensity is normal to the plane containing the
differential filament and the line drawn from the filament to the point P.

Magnetic Flux and Magnetic Flux
Density
 In free space, let us define magnetic flux density B as

B  0 H
where B is measured in webers per square meter (Wb/m2) or tesla (T).
 The constant μ0 is not dimensionless and has a defined value for free space, in henrys per meter (H/m), of

0  4 107 H m
 The magnetic-flux-density vector B, as the name weber per square meter implies, is a member of the
flux-density family of vector fields.
 Comparing the laws of Biot-Savart and Coulomb, one can find analogy between H and E that leads to an
analogy between B and D; D = ε0E and B = μ0H.
Magnetic Flux and Magnetic Flux
Density
 If B is measured in teslas or webers per square meter, then magnetic flux H should be
measured in webers.
 Let us represent magnetic flux by Φ and define Φ as the flux passing through any designated
area,

   B  dS Wb

  D  dS  Q

 We remember that Gauss’s law states that the total electric flux passing through any closed
surface is equal to the charge enclosed. This charge is the source of the electric flux D.
 For magnetic flux, no current source can be enclosed, since the current is considered to be in
closed circuit.

 For this reason, the Gauss’s law for the magnetic field can be written as

Ampere’s Circuital Law
The Line integral of H. dl or B. ds around any closed path equals I, where I is the total steady current
passing through any closed surface bounded by closed loop or path.

Ampere’s Circuital Law
 In solving electrostatic problems, whenever a high degree of symmetry is present,
we found that they could be solved much more easily by using Gauss’s law
compared to Coulomb’s law.
 Again, an analogous procedure exists in magnetic field.
 Here, the law that helps solving problems more easily is known as Ampere’s circuital
law.
 The derivation of this law will waits until several subsection ahead. For the present
we accept Ampere’s circuital law as another law capable of experimental proof.
 Ampere’s circuital law states that the line integral of magnetic field intensity H about
any closed path is exactly equal to the direct current enclosed by that path,

## • The line integral of H

and b is equal to I
• The integral around path c
is less than I.

 The application of Ampere’s circuital law involves finding the total current enclosed
by a closed path.
Ampere’s Circuital Law
 Let us again find the magnetic field intensity
produced by an infinite long filament carrying a
current I. The filament lies on the z axis in free
space, flowing to az direction.
 We choose a convenient path to any section of
which H is either perpendicular or tangential and
along which the magnitude H is constant.

 The path must be a circle of radius ρ, and Ampere’s circuital law can be written as

Ampere’s Law with Displacement
Current
Imagine a wire connected to a charging or discharging capacitor. The area in the
Amperian loop could be stretched into the open region of the capacitor. In this case
there would be current passing through the loop, but not through the area bounded
Ampere’s Law with Displacement Current
If Ampere’s Law still holds, there must be a magnetic field generated by the changing E-field
between the plates. This induced B-field makes it look like there is a current (call it the
displacement current) passing through the plates.

Stokes’ Theorem
 Previously, from Ampere’s circuital law, we derive one of Maxwell’s equations, ∇×H = J.
 This equation is to be considered as the point form of Ampere’s circuital law and applies on
a “per-unit-area” basis.

 Now, we shall devote the material to a mathematical theorem known as Stokes’ theorem.
 In the process, we shall show that we may obtain Ampere’s circuital law from ∇×H = J.
Stokes’ Theorem
 Consider the surface S of the next figure, which is broken up into incremental
surfaces of area ΔS.
 If we apply the definition of the curl to one of these incremental surfaces, then:

 H  dL S
(  H ) N
S
or

 H  dL S
(  H )  a N
S
or

 H  dL S (  H)  a N S  (  H)  S
Stokes’ Theorem
 Let us now perform the circulation for every ΔS comprising S and sum the results.

##  As we evaluate the closed line integral for each ΔS,

some cancellation will occur because every interior
wall is covered once in each direction.
 The only boundaries on which cancellation cannot
occur form the outside boundary, the path enclosing
S.

 Therefore,

 H  dL   (  H)  dS
S
where dL is taken only on the perimeter of S.
