Magnus noticed the iron nails in his sandles were attracted by some black stones later called loadstones 0 Early electrical workers learned to store charge in Leyden jars in which the electrical fluidquot was thought to condense 0 To obtain larger stores of charge these Leyden jars were often arranged in rows which Ben Franklin thought looks like batteries batteries of canon that is o Volta used stacks of dissimilar metals separated by a conductiving fluid to produce the first voltaic pilequot what we d today refer to as a battery 0 Early workers notices that upon lightning striking a house which took a course through the cupboards many knives and forks were melted but others were found to be magnetized o In the 1860 s James Clerk Maxwell presented his electromagnetic theory 0 In

their charges and that it is inversely proportional to the distance between them The force is attractive if the charges are of opposite sign and repulsive for like signs The relation is referred to as

Electrostatic fields g The electrostatic field E is the force per unit charge on a test charge q as the charge of the test charge goes to zero The reason the electric field is defined as a limit is that a finite charge would carry its own field which would affect the very field being characterized by measuring the force on q That is if q were finite its field would affect the F being measured Defining the electric field via an infinitesimal test charge avoids this difficulty Electromagnetic Fields 10 Electric fields and superposition g From the force exerted on q by one charge q q39q F

distributions Charge always exists in discreet chunks the magnitude of the charge of an individual electron is 16103919 Coulomb Since charge occurs in discreet quantities charge can never be truly distributed There is always granularity Uniform distributions are useful approximations when the scale of interest is much larger than the scale in which granularity is evident These approximations are used constantly in macroscopic electromagnetics and it is well to discuss them at this time pV Volume charge distributions Cm3 are used for charge distributed over a volume ps Surface charge distributions Cm2 are used to indicate charge is distributed over a given surface This is itself an approximation to what is actually a volume charge density where the charge is distributed in a region very close to some surface Considera charged electrical conductor in which its excess charge is confined to a region very close to the surface of the conductor In this case it is reasonable to describe the charge distribution by a surface charge distribution in Cm2 rather than describe the distribution as a volume charge distribution pL Likewise line charge distributions Cm are used for charge distributed over a length as for example in a charged wire Example infinite line charge g Find the electric field due to a line charge along the z axis Len R chige l ng r z az rpapzaz Rr r papz

estimating the area of a definite integral is to express the integral as a Riemann sum and approximate the area under the curve as the sum of the rectangular areas of constant width and whose heights are determined by the function39s value One possibility in determining rectangle heights would be to use the value of the function at the initial point in the interval as the height of the rectangle This would lead to the formation of a left Riemann sum Another possibility would be to use the value at the end point for a right Riemann sum and another would be to use the value at the midpoint for a middle Riemann sum Here we will use a middle Riemann sum Electromagnetic Fields 16 frsi ine seeeriu usesine eriu pEImL arid the third uses the vaiue at the miupeirii enne iriieivai Taking the vaiue

electric flux density due to a point charge q at the origin from Gauss law q a D 4n r Therefore D 8E This relation is general for linear homogenous materials not just for point charges at the origin more about permittivity later Example line of charge g Use Gauss law to determine the field due an infinite line of charge pL on the zaxis Due to the clear symmetry involved cylindrical coordinates will be used The fact that the charge is an infinite line charge along the zaxis permits the form of the field to be determined 1 since the line charge is infinite in extent along 2 the strength of the field cannot depend on 2 and neither can the field have a component in the az direction 2 since the charge producing the field is an infinite line charge symmetry implies that the strength of the field cannot depend on 4 and neither can the field have a component in the a direction and 3 these considerations require the form of the field to be D D ap where D can only depend on p The field s symmetry is the key in using Gauss law to determine the field With this symmetry a Gaussian surface a cylinder with its axis on the zaxis Choose the cylinder to have radius a and length L as shown on the diagram below can be chosen such that the surface integral the Gaussian integral becomes tractable Note the central role of symmetry in this problem 1 The field cannot depend on 2 since the line charge is on the z axis and the line is considered infinite in length The physical environment is not a function ofz so neither is the field 2 The field cannot depend on 4 since the line charge is on the z axis which so that the physics of the situation is also independent of 3 The field can only depend on p and moreover must point in the tap direction depending on whether pL is positive or negative Electromagnetic Fields 19 NDUDE nuvvtne Gausstan surfa e sen251D make 11 tne evamattun uttne Gausstan tntegrat strnpter I t uttcmA 1 1 Tne he d ts perpenmcmartu tne surface nunnat Gausstan I

be q as was derived from Coulomb s law The importance of symmetry in analytic solutions In the two preceding techniques using superposition integrals and using Gauss law the ability to find analytic solutions depended upon the charge distribution s symmetry First when using Coulomb s law in the superposition integral the charge s symmetry allowed us to analytically evaluate the resulting integrals to obtain a closedform solution It is true that the integrals could have readily been written without the given symmetry since only a knowledge of the charge s distribution in space is needed for this But for analytic evaluation symmetry was a critical factor Similarly when using Gauss law symmetry often resulted in the existance of a suitable Gaussian surface This allowed the crucial step of evaluating the Gaussian integral to be carried out often not possible without sufficient symmetry With symmetry and the proper choice of Gaussian surface evaluating the Gaussian integral is often trivial Without this symmetry however its evaluation would often be anything but trivial and usually required numeric evaluation How does one approach a more general situation where perhaps the charge is not so conveniently arranged One approach is to use a numeric tool like MATLAB to evaluate the resulting superposition integrals an approach which will be explored via homework Electromagnetic Fields 22 This approach is general forthose cases in which the charge distribution is known Unfortunately in many cases we39re faced with a boundary value problem in which the fields or potential on a boundary surface is known and the charge is an unknown In this case the knowns include the region s geometry material properties and boundary conditions We have therefore two types of problems one in which we know the charge and the other in which we know boundary conditions Both types are important Boundary value problems are solved via differential equations and therefore a mathematical description of electromagnetics in terms of differential equations is important Divergence g Consider a cube of dimension Ax Ay A2 with one corner at xyz The net flux leaving the volume

Can this differential relation be used to nd the electric flux out of macroscopic bodies To answer this question consider two adjacent differential cubes The critical question whether the electric ux at the adjacent areas is properly accounted for to allow integration over macroscopic volumes gt It is apparent that when taking the divergence over adjacent differential volumes the common ux across their shared surface areas will be positive for one and negative which will cancel for the composite volume lj This observation for two adjacent differential volumes can be extended to any number of differential volumes This permits the use of integration of an in nite number of differential volumes for the case of macroscopic bodies and allows divergence to be used to nd the electric ux out of

8 So far the focus of discussion has been on coordinate systems vectors vector calculus and the relationship between charge and the electric field electric flux and electric flux density Now electromagnetics will be viewed through the lens of energy and potential One advantage in looking at the problem in this way is that one deals with scalar functions energy and potential which can then be used to find fields Electromagnetic Fields 26 Potential Energy g A charge q in an electrostatic field E is acted upon by the field with a force F qE To move charge q against this field an equal and opposite force FapP39ied F must be applied to move charge As the charge moves work is done on the charge by the applied force This work is not lost to thermal energy through friction The work done on the charge acts to increase the charge s potential energy just as pushing against a spring increases the spring s potential orjust as moving a ball uphiII in a gravitational field increases its potential energy The reference point for potential energy the point where the potential energy is considered to be zero is arbitrary Only differences of potential energy are physically meaningful iust as in circuit analysis where the absolute potential of the reference node is arbitrary since only potential differences affect circuit behavior In electromagnetics the reference is typically taken to be at infinity Also by convention the potential at infinity is take to be zero As charge is moved from infinity to a position r a force must be applied to the charge which precisely balances the force exerted on the charge by the electric field In moving the charge this force does work on the charge The differential of this potential energy is dWF applie dDdl qEDd The resulting electric potential

a force F is the dot product of the force and the differential length dW F dl Consider F to be the force exerted by the field on a charge q and that F is the force that must be exerted to move the charge against the field Therefore dW F dl is the differential of the work done by the force F on the charge in moving the charge against the force of the field F The work done on the charge by the applied or external force F is equal to the increase in the potential energy W of the charge q Now considerthe differential of work from purely a mathematical pointofview lfthe scalar function W is a

function and its magnitude is maximum increase Electromagnetic Fields 30 1 The gradient of a scalar function of position is a vector 2 The gradient of a scalarfunction has as its magnitude the maximum rate of increase in the scalarfunction and its direction toward maximum increase Here the scalar function of position is W the electrostatic potential energy What is the meaning of increasing W or decreasing W It simply refers to the fact that when W increases the potential energy of the charge q increases As W decreases the potential energy of the charge decreases What does the gradient of scalar potential energy signify physically The gradient of W would give the magnitude and direction of the maximum increase in potential energy It is analogous to the hiker on the side of a hill The gradient of the gravitational potential energy in this case would indicate uphill The gradient of the electrostatic energy is analogous it also indicates uphill this time the hill being an electrostatic potential hill The force that the field exerts is downhill to lower potential energies Greater energies are only reached if an external force does work on the charge in moving it uphill to greater potential energy The force a charge experiences in an electrostatic field is downhill in the direction of decreasing potential energy The force exerted by the electrostatic field on a positive charge the force F qE points downhill To move the charge uphill to greater potential energy an external force equal to negative the field s force F qE must be applied to exactly balance the

form a surface an equipotential surface which is perpendicular to the electric field or which is the same thing to the negative gradient of the potential The equipotential surface is perpendicular to the gradient or the negative of the gradient so that the electric field is always perpendicular to equipotential surfaces The gradient of the potential the negative of the electric field is

El JIIUJDds RVi R J a I Joule s law g The differential work done on a charge q by an electric field E is dWF DdqE Ddl If the charge were in a vacuum the work done on charge q would be reflected in an increase in kinetic energy of q The charge would accelerate the speed would increase The mechanism of energy transfer would be between the field which doing work would lose energy to that of the charge which having work done on it would gain energy Vacuum If the charge is one of the free charges contributing to electrical conduction in a material it will not be free to continually accelerate It will be scattered that is it will bump into and bounce off the molecules of the material In these scattering events kinetic energy is transferred from the charge slowing it down The kinetic energy lost by the charge will be transferred to the material s molecules causing them to vibrate more energetically the material will grow warmer material At some point a balance is achieved between the energy the charges gains from the electric field to that they lose through scattering At this point of balance the charges as Electromagnetic Fields 55 a group will no longer have any net acceleration The energy they receive from the electric eld is then passed on to the material in the form of heat energy lattice vibrations Since the mobile charge no longer experiences any net acceleration its motion can be described by an average velocity v At this point the charge can viewed as acting simply as an intermediary transferring power from the electric field which loses energy to the material which gains energy Consider the case where a voltage source sets up the electric eld For this case the electric field continuously loses energy but does not grow smaller in magnitude since the voltage source provides energy to maintain the electric field if the electric eld did not receive energy from the voltage source its magnitude would decrease In this case the energy from the voltage source maintains the electric field which does work on the moving charge and this work is transferred to the material through scattering from the material s atoms lattice scattering Overall we can view this

Conductors and the perfect electrical conductor approximation Good conductors have a large conductivity 0 A perfect electrical conductor PEC has infinite conductivity This implies that the electrical field inside a PEC is zero That this must hold can be seen from the point form of Ohm s law J6E The magnitude of J must remain finite for a PEC with infinite 0 the magnitude of E must be zero Of course this condition is not exactly met within a good conductor but it is nearly so as one can see in the example below Example field required for DC currents in copper conductors 30 A is the maximum current permitted by the National Electric Code assuming 30 C ambient temperature for 10 AWG copper conductors What is the electric field inside a 10 AWG conductor carrying its maximum permissible

electric flux density at the boundary of a PEC is zero as well ET O and DT O 2 Since E 0 inside a PEC D 0 inside a PEC as well This combined with the fact that Dian O at the boundary of a PEC implies both the electric field and the electric flux density vector are always normal to the surface of a PEC DN ps and EN pss Incremental resistor it Additional insight can be gained from a discussion of

which can be split into three different mechanisms electronic ionic and orientational Electronic polarization is shared by all atoms and molecules electron clouds can be displaced from the nucleus Ionic polarization is the displacement of permanent dipoles such as salts this mechanism involves the movement of ions Orientational polarization involves the rotation of entire polar molecules such as water Electronic Polarization All materials composed of positive nuclei and negative electrons participate in the electronic polarization mechanism Since electrons are much lighter than nuclei For instance the mass of an electron me 911103931 kg and the mass of a proton is 1671O3927 kg a ratio of about 1800 Since most nuclei comprise more thatjust one proton one can appreciate that nuclei are much more massive than are electrons When nuclei and electrons are subjected to an electric field that is rapidly timevarying the difference in inertia between the electrons and the nuclei results in nearly the entire relative motion to be due to the electrons motion Therefore the mass associated with this process is very nearly just the electronic mass Ionic Polarization Electromagnetic Fields 72 The electronic bonding in many materials has an ionic component due to differences in electron affinities of the material s constituents For example when sodium Na and chlorine Cl form sodium chloride NaCl or common table salt the chloride ion attracts the bond electrons more strongly than do the sodium ions the result being that NaCl is an ionic solid with the Na ion being positively charged and the chloride ion being negatively charged NaCl39 When ionic solids are subjected to a rapidly timevarying electric field these two ions are displaced in opposite directions due to the Coulomb force The mass associated with this process includes some relatively small portion of the ions mass which is much higher than that associated with electronic polarization Orientational Polarization This mechanism is associated with the movement and rotation of permanent dipoles the outstanding example of which is the water molecule Orientation polarization in this case refers to the movement and rotation of the Jr dipole not just distortion as is the case in ionic polarization The result is that a much greater mass is typically associates with orientational polarization than is with either electronic or with ionic polarization Variation of polarization with frequency The three polarization mechanisms involve different characteristic inertias and so have different time constants The result is that all materials have a frequency dependent permittivity It is important to know at what frequencies these polarization mechanisms begin to vary Think of bound charge in terms of a massspringdamper system The spring constant represents the coulomb force the mass represents the mass associated with the bound charge and the damper represents loss mechanisms time domain eom m t

This is just what is typically seen ionic polarization begins leaving in the vicinity of infrared IR frequencies beginning around 1012 to 1013 Hz orientational polarization associated with the movement of the permanent electric dipole of a polar molecule This mechanism begins leaving in the microwave regions a few GHz Water is a good example of the frequency dependence of orientational polarization and its subsequent affect on permittivity as frequency varies At DC water has a relative permittivity of 80 and at 100 GHz its relative permittivity is around 10 Dielectric strength and dielectric breakdown g A related property is the material39s dielectric strength A material s dielectric strength is the maximum electric field that the material can withstand without damage At sufficiently strong electric fields electrons break their bonds become free and then accelerate due to the applied field At this point the material no longer is an effective insulator Moreover these electrons can in turn collide with other bound electrons breaking their bonds Once their bonds are broken these newly free electrons accelerate under the strong electric field and when they collide with a neighboring molecule other electrons become free This chain reaction can very quickly create large numbers of free electrons The process is referred to as dielectric breakdown The heat

a capacitor is depends on the geometry of the conductors and the physical properties of the insulator in particular its permittivity The capacitance of a capacitor is equal to the ratio of the charge

area 2 q 39 The plate area is very large so that the fields in the interior can be assumed to be those that would be obtained from infinite planes of charge Then if the plate area is large compared to the plate separation the region in which these approximations do not hold which would be along the edges where the plates do not appear as approximately infinite is small compared to the total plate area These small effects the fringing fieldsquot or edge effects are neglected in the parallel plate model This assumption allows one to consider the charge to be evenly distributed on the plates and

This is the equation that can be used to find the potentials in a twodimensional inhomogeneous capacitor The 2D case is importance since the majority of capacitors are in integrated circuits the vast majority of which are 2D capacitors fabricated with planar deposition processes As with the resistive case this technique can readily be generalized to the general inhomogeneous 3D capacitor Consider

with the direction of movement The force exerted by the field is in the direction of energy decrease As discussed in lecture F VW Consider the parallel plate capacitance Since the plates are oppositely charged it is evident that there will be an electrostatic attraction between the plates after all opposite charges attract Two cases will be considered The first is the case of constant
