A wire with radius a and of conductivity sE carries a constant, uniformly distributed current I in the z-direction. Apply Poynting's theorem to show that power dissipated in the wire is given by the familiar expression I^2R for Joule's heat.

Solution:
A wire with radius a and of conductivity sE  carries a constant, uniformly distr
