Homework #9: Do not turn this in since there is a test next week. I will post my solutions to these.
- I can't emphasize enough Equation (5.15) on page 278. That's the basis of all resistivity.
- Note the reflection coefficient k=(ρ2-ρ1)/(ρ2+ρ1) that's defined on page 280.
- Page 282 starting with "Now lets examine..." to page 292. Note that the reflection coefficient 'k' is derived here.
- Sections 5.8.2 and 5.8.3 (I know you've done this before, but just a reminder)
That's all for homework #9.
- problem 5.2. Here you need to give the specific angle in the lower material. Let the initial angles in these problems be (a) 65° and (b) 28°.
- You are in an area where sandy soil (see page 325) with ρ=150Ωm overlies damp clay with ρ=30Ωm, which overlies bedrock with ρ=2,000Ωm. Find the reflection coefficient for each interface.
