- Energy consideration in the two-capacitor problem
- Published at:Not Found
Abstract. A derivation of the specific electrostatic energy loss for two interacting capacitors is given. The connecting wires are assumed to be superconducting. The method of derivation is based purely on the Poynting vector involved in the process without any reference to the nature of the mechanism that may be involved in achieving a final equilibrium state.
