Potential & Field

(Sources of Electric Potential & Finding the Electric Field from the Potential)

- Electric potential difference from the Electric field…
- Graphically:
- ΔV = negative of the area under the E vs. s curve between si & sf
The emf of the battery is the work done per charge…

(ideal battery)

- ΔV = negative of the area under the E vs. s curve between si & sf

Q: What is the potential difference of two batteries in series?

- A: The sum of their terminal voltages.

Calculate the potential difference between pointsiand f…

Calculate the potential difference between pointsiand f…

Component of E-field

in the s direction!

i.e. Calculate the E-field of a point charge from the electric potential…

At which point is the E-field stronger?

- At xA.
- At xB.
- The field is the same strength at both.
- There’s not enough information to tell.

i.e. Calculate the E-field (on axis) of a ring of charge from the electric potential…

The figure below is a graph of the electric potential in a region of space where E is parallel to the x-axis.

Draw a graph of Ex versus x.

The figure below is a graph of the electric potential in a region of space where E is parallel to the x-axis.

Draw a graph of Ex versus x.

Consider two equipotential surfaces, with V+ positive relative to V- …

Notice:

- E is perpendicular to the equipotential surfaces and points “downhill” in direction of decreasing potential.

Estimate the strength and direction of the E-field at pts. 1, 2, & 3.

Estimate the strength and direction of the E-field at pts. 1, 2, & 3.
