The electric potential-but not the electric field-of any charge distribution on a ring at a point on its axis is equivalent to that of an equal point charge placed anywhere on the ring; this is the well-known ring symmetry. We point out similar symmetries for finding the potential at points on the axis of a charged disc: disc symmetry, and the potential at points along the axes of a charged cylindrical shell and a solid cylinder; and cylinder symmetry. As such, a uniformly charged disc, or parts of it, map onto a line of equal charge parallel to its radius that gives the same potential at the same points on its axis. In the same manner, a uniformly charged thin cylindrical shell, or parts of it, maps onto a line of equal charge parallel to its axis that gives the same potential as the shell for points on its axis. Similarly, a cylinder, or parts of it, with a uniform volume charge density is seen to map onto a sheet carrying the same charge with the potential above one edge of the sheet equal to that at the corresponding points on the axis of the cylinder. The disc (cylinder) symmetry leads also to the fact the potential at points on the axis of a disc (cylinder) with charge distributions that vary with the azimuthal angle is the same as the potential of a uniformly charged disc (cylinder) at these points. These observations and their generalizations can supplement the methods for calculating the electric potential used in introductory electricity and magnetism classes as further useful symmetries that can be applied, whenever relevant, to find the electric potential.

Ambipolar diffusion in direct-current positive column with variations in radius of discharge tube
Akbar, D.; Bilikmen, S. (IOP Publishing, 2006-09-01)
The ambipolar diffusion and argon ion mobility as functions of the reduced electric field and pressure times the tube radius are investigated in a weakly ionized non-uniform glow discharge plasma system. In particular, the variable cross section at the same discharge tube on the ambipolar diffusion coefficient shows a more noticeable effect than the effects from the ion mobility. As the diffusion length Lambda increases, the ambipolar diffusion D-a increases. However, it decreases as the discharge current i...
Singularities of spectra of infrared reflection of tertiary compounds of the type T1BX2
Hasanlı, Nızamı; Khomutova, M.D.; Sardarly, R.M.; Tagorov, V.I. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1977-07-01)
The frequencies of lattice vibrations are calculated for compounds of the type T1BX2 on the basis of the linear-chain model. The calculated frequencies are compared with experimental values for TlGaS2 and TlGaSe2. The good agreement between the calculated and experimental frequencies serves as proof of the applicability of the linear-chain model to compounds of the T1BX2 type. The proposed method of calculation of frequencies makes it possible to predict the theoretical frequencies of lattice vibrations of ...
Analytical Solutions to the Klein-Gordon Equation with Position-Dependent Mass for q-Parameter Poschl-Teller Potential
Arda, Altug; Sever, Ramazan; TEZCAN, CEVDET (IOP Publishing, 2010-01-01)
The energy eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenfunctions of the one-dimensional Klein-Gordon equation with q-parameter Poschl-Teller potential are analytically obtained within the position-dependent mass formalism. The parametric generalization of the Nikiforov-Uvarov method is used in the calculations by choosing a mass distribution.
Energy states of the Hulthen plus Coulomb-like potential with position-dependent mass function in external magnetic fields
Eshghi, M.; Sever, Ramazan; Ikhdair, S. M. (IOP Publishing, 2018-02-01)
We need to solve a suitable exponential form of the position-dependent mass (PDM) Schrodinger equation with a charged particle placed in the Hulthen plus Coulomb-like potential field and under the actions of the external magnetic and Aharonov-Bohm (AB) flux fields. The bound state energies and their corresponding wave functions are calculated for the spatially-dependent mass distribution function of interest in physics. A few plots of some numerical results with respect to the energy are shown.
Nonlinear mode coupling and sheared flow in a rotating plasma
Uzun Kaymak, İlker Ümit; Choi, S.; Clary, M. R.; Ellis, R. F.; Hassam, A. B.; Teodorescu, C. (IOP Publishing, 2009-01-01)
Shear flow is expected to stabilize the broad spectrum of interchange modes in rotating plasmas. However, residual fluctuations may still persist. To investigate the presence of such fluctuations, sixteen magnetic pickup coils equally spaced on a crown have been mounted inside the vacuum vessel, at the edge of a rotating plasma in mirror configuration. A comprehensive analysis of the magnetic fluctuations shows that very low spatial mode numbers survive under the imposed shear flow. Nevertheless, temporal F...
