negative ones or go on for ever density of field lines indicates strength of field Conductors Contain huge amounts of free Charges In presence of electric field Charges will flow to counteract field Unless new Charges are constantly supplied current field will be canceled gt no field inside conductors All Charges sit on the outside External field will rearrange Charges such that conductor experiences net force towards external Charge even in absence of net Charge Insulators Contain no free Charges Can pick up a few extra Charges a little net Charge External field can polarize

electric force Electric fields that tell the electrons to move travel with nearly speed of light Series Circuit Same current has to go through all elements doesn t matter which one comes first Voltage supplied by battery etc gets divided up among various elements Total resistance is sum of individual resistances The largest voltage drop occurs across the largest resistor Parallel Circuit Current that must be supplied by battery is the sum of the currents to all of the various branches Each branch sees the full battery voltage independent from the other branches Smallest resistor draws the largest current Magnetic elds Due to charges in motion electric currents spinning electrons Field lines can form closed loops but never end or begin Example Permanent dipole solenoid or short coil

to magnetic fields Exceptions Iron Cobalt Nickel and some Rare Earth compounds Magnetic properties due to electron spins aligned within domains Normally random orientation of domains no net magnetism External field can orient domains strong magnetic response polarization leading to attraction towards other magnets For some alloys domains can keep orientation indefinitely permanent magnets

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

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!"

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."

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."
