## Abstract

An investigation is conducted in order determine an accurate model for the charge density on the flat end faces of a cylindrical dipole. A moment method technique is applied to the problem in which trigonometric basis function are assumed for the current on the wire, and pulse basis functions are assumed for the charge distribution on the end caps. In addition, the edge discontinuity is taken into account by including a ring charge. The solution is very general in term of dipole length, radius and wavelength, since no simplifying assumptions or approximations are made. This analysis of a closed dipole should provide an accurate model for the charge density and its associated current distribution on the flat end cap.
