If r1 = 1 nm and r = 1, then E = 720 meV. Notice that we explicitly made use of the fact that electron charge has a single value but that we used a continuously variable charge to derive our expression for the charging energy, E. One might expect a more rigorous theory to avoid this inconsistency. So far, we have only considered static electric fields. In the world we experience very little can be considered static. Electrons move around, current flows, and electric fields change with time. The aim of classical electrodynamics is to provide a framework with which to describe electric and magnetic fields that change over time.
At first sight, one might expect that the large number of atoms involved gives rise to all types of oscillatory motion. One might anticipate solutions to the equations of motion allowing all frequencies and wavelengths, so that no dispersion relation could exist. However, this situation does not arise in practice because of some important simplifications imposed by symmetry. The motion of a given atom is determined by forces due to the relative position of its nearest neighbors. Forces due to displacements of more distant neighbors are not included.
The site of each atom is labeled relative to the site j. The displacement from equilibrium of particles mass m1 and m2 is indicated. 41) where q = 2 / is the wave vector of a vibration of wavelength, . 43) L L/2 Spring constant, κ for each spring j–1 m2 j+1 j m2 m1 uj – 1 uj Fig. 11 Illustration of an isolated linear chain of particles of alternating mass m1 and m2 connected by identical springs with spring constant .
