Week 3 Tuesday, September 6, 2016 11:04 AM • Same dir w Fe if q>0 Opp dir w Fe if q<0 • • The electric field vector is tangent to the electric field lines at each point • Number of electric field lines per unit area through a surface perpendicular to the lines is proportional to the strength of the electric field in a given region • E vector strong when lines close(& high density) and weak when far(& low density) • Total number lines proportional to charge • If source charge pos, lines radiate outward radically in all dir ○ If neg, radial lines point inward to infinity ○ If group of charges, lines start at pos and end at neg if excess of charge, some lines will begin/end infinitely far away ○ ○ Number lines drawn leaving pos/ending neg is always same and proportional to mag of charge ○ No 2 field lines cross ○ Unlike charges, dipole(equal but opp charge) ○ 2 like charges, lines start at pos and end at infinity…electric field line is tangent to those lines  Bulging out around charges indicated repulsion  Low field lines btwn charges shows weak field in that region  If 2+ with -, only half the lines that leave pos charge will end at neg charge…. 2x number lines leaving +2 as ending on - Phys 222 Page 1  If 2+ with -, only half the lines that leave pos charge will end at neg charge…. 2x number lines leaving +2 as ending on - • Conductors- electrons move freely in response to electric force  No net motion of charge in conductor, is in electrostatic equilibrium ○ Isolated conductors:  electric field is 0 everywhere inside conductor  Excess charge resides only on surface □ Result of 1/r^2 repulsion..surface would be changed if charge was inside bc would repulse & cause movement disrupting equilibrium  Field just outside conductor is perpendicular to conductor's surface  Field accumulates on smallest(sharpest) points so stronger  On flatter(wider) end charges are parallel so move apart from repulsion until equil established □ On sharper(smaller) end repulsion directed away so not as much repulsion so don’t move as far apart  Larger resultant force away from surface created…may allow charges to jump from surface to air • Electric flux: ○ Field lines penetrating an area(A) perpendicular to the field ○ Product of EA is electric force ○ In general: Perp area to A is theta to the field. Theta is angle btwn the field and normal of area A Inner product of 2 vectors is: • Area vector: Area vector can have diff orientations in electric field Electric field passes thru area: Electric flux passes thru closed surface: (same eq as above) Normal of closed surface is outward Those passing out of interior of volume are pos Ex)Uniform electric field in x direction… electric flux thru each surface of cube w edges L, and net flux? 0 if no charge inside  Net flux thru closed surface of arbitrary shape? Phys 222 Page 2  Net flux thru closed surface of arbitrary shape?  Does total electric field pass thru closed surface depend on electric field in the space?  Does electric flux thru closed surface depend on charge? ○ Gauss's Law- consider point charge Q surrounded by spherical surface centered on charge  Mag of E field everywhere on surface: - E flux thru any closed surface is equal to net charge Q inside surface divided by E Technique for calculating E field on a closed surface w symm Ex) find E field inside conducting shell for r<a & outside for r>b & if add charge -2Q put in center find E field for r>b & what distribution of charge is on shape If symm, E field from any surface point always points inside E field inside shell is 0 E field outside: r>b E field outside shell is same as point charge & points out E field of charged thin sphere cell..neg charge on inner surface(Q) Phys 222 Page 3 Charge distrib: Plane symm: nonconductcing infinite sheet.. Uniform + charge.. Find E field above & below plate Field must be perp to plate Phys 222 Page 4

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Allison Fischer University of Alabama

"I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
