The Problem of Surface Charges and Fields in Coaxial Cables and its Importance for Relativistic Physics
Keywords: surface charges, coaxial cable, classical electrodynamics
We calculate the surface charges, potential and fields in a long cylindrical coaxial cable with inner and outer conductors of finite conductivities and finite areas. It is shown that there is an electric field outside the return conductor. PACS: 41.20 -q, 41.20 Gz.
