Connecting Potential and FieldRecall from the last lecture we found

From Calculus III we find

TACTICS BOX 30.1 ‑Finding the potential difference from the electric field

- 1) Draw a picture and identify the two points between which you wish to find the potential. Call them positions i and f.
- If you need to assign a specific value of V to a point in space, choose position f to be the zero point of the potential, usually at infinity.
- Establish a coordinate axis from i to f along which you already know or can easily determine the electric field component
- 4) Carry out the integral of Equation 30.3 to find the potential difference

Calculating the potential from the electric field.

Class Question

Three charged, metal spheres of different radii are connected by a thin metal wire. The potential and electric field at the surface of each sphere are V and E. Which of the following is true?

1. V1 = V2 = V3 and E1 = E2 = E3

2. V1 = V2 = V3 and E1 > E2 > E3

3. V1 > V2 > V3 and E1 = E2 = E3

4. V1 > V2 > V3 and E1 > E2 > E3

5. V3 > V2 > V1 and E1 = E2 = E3
