Chapters23 and 24 You are expected to 1 Use Coulomb s law to calculate the electric forces between charges 2 Calculate the E eld due to a discrete charge distribution and simple continuous charge distributions 3 Know the distinction between the electric force F see eqsl 2 below and the E eld 4 Use Gauss law to calculate the E eld for symmetric continuous charge distributions 5 Solve problems that contain concepts from Chs23 and 24 some simple concepts from PHYS101 1 Coulomb s Law According to Coulomb s Law the magnitude of the electrostatic force between two charged particles with charges Q1 and Q2 and separated by a distance r is given by EkQ1 ZQ2 1 I Where k 9x1 09 N m2C2 is the Coulomb constant The unit of charge is taken as a Coulomb C The constant k is also written as k 14723980 where the constant 80 is called the permittivity offree space so 8854XlO3912 C2 Nm2 Since force is a vector quantity in the vector form Coulomb s law is expressed as I712 91 2 2 I I r F21 Q1 r12 Q2

F on a given charge due to a discrete charge distribution is simply the vector sum of the forces produced by individual charges in the charge distribution at the location of the charge of your interest Study problem 2 below to clarify the points mentioned above 2 The E field The magnitude of the E eld generated by a charge Q is given by E kQI Z The direction of E at a given location is the direction in which a force would be exerted on a unit positive test charge placed at that location The E eld due to a discrete charge distribution is simply the vector sum of the E elds produced by individual charges in the charge distribution 21 Finding the E eld at a given location due to a discrete charge distribution Break up the problem in three parts 1 Direction draw the E eld vector

freebody force diagram FBD drawing abilities 3 Gauss Law 9 m GS 7 Gaussian surface 80 E GS In essence the total uX through a GS is determined solely by the charge enclosed by the GS A crucial aspect of applying Gauss law to determine the E eld due to a charge distribution is nding the charge enclosed Within a Gaussian surface Please DO NOT UNDERESTTMATE TPHS Here are a few cases to illustrate this point 1 A solid conducting sphere of radius R with charge Q Remember all charge will be forced to the surface of the sphere Why q 0 for r lt R 11m Q for r gt R 2 A solid dielectric insulator

point 10 cm away from charge Q Immediately after being released the E electron would move Q g 4Q A quot v g X a to the left lt2 i 4390 cm b to the right c the electron will be at equilibrium and stay where it is released 2 A thin uniformly charged ring lies in the x y plane with its center at the origin as shown The net E eld at point P on the zaxis will point quot P a somewhere in the x y plane b along the positive z axis axis c along the negative z axis axis d Efield at P is zero because of the symmetry of the charge distribution 3 An electric dipole is situated along the XaXis with its center at the origin The net E eld at point P on the yaXis will point a along the positive yaXis b along the positive XaXis c along the negative XaXis b The E eld at P is zero due to the opposite but equal contributions from the two charges 4 Two point charges are situated symmetrically about the origin The E eld measured at the origin is zero At point P the E eld points in the positive Xdirection From this one can conclude that a both charges are positive and equal in magnitude b both charges are negative and equal in magnitude c the charges are of opposite polarity but of equal magnitude d none of the above we don t have suf cient information 5 The E eld inside a uniformly charged conducting shell is determined to be zero When a positive charge Q is brought near the shell the Efield at the center of the shell would a still be zero b be non zero and point radially away from Q c be non zero and point radially toward Q
