(c) The electric field at the surface of a conductor is normal to the surface and has
a magnitude 4na, where a is the charge density per unit area on the surface. 1.2
Two infinite, conducting, plane sheets of uniform thicknesses tl and t*, ...
action and the velocity of light in vacuum to be dimensionless and of unit
magnitude. The resulting system of units (called "natural" units) has only one
basic unit, customarily chosen to be length. All quantities, whether length or time
or force or ...
Only when we define other field quantities may it be convenient to insert
dimensional proportionality constants in the definitions in order to adjust the
dimensions and magnitude of these fields relative to the electric field.
Consequently, with no ...
