12. Chapter 27. Basic Content and Examples

13. Electric Field Models The electric field of a point charge q at the origin, r = 0, is where є0 = 8.85× 10–12 C2/N m2 is the permittivity constant.

14. Electric Field Models The net electric field due to a group of point charges is where Ei is the field from point charge i.

15. The Electric Field of a Dipole We can represent an electric dipole by two opposite charges ±q separated by the small distance s. The dipole moment is defined as the vector The dipole-moment magnitude p = qs determines the electric field strength. The SI units of the dipole moment are C m.

16. The Electric Field of a Dipole The electric field at a point on the axis of a dipole is where r is the distance measured from the center of the dipole. The electric field in the plane that bisects and is perpendicular to the dipole is This field is opposite to the dipole direction, and it is only half the strength of the on-axis field at the same distance.

22. The Electric Field of a Continuous Charge Distribution The linear charge density of an object of length L and charge Q, is defined as Linear charge density, which has units of C/m, is the amount of charge per meter of length.

23. An Infinite Line of Charge A very long, thin rod, with linear charge density λ, has an electric field Where r is the radial distance away from the rod.

24. The Electric Field of a Continuous Charge Distribution The surface charge density of a two-dimensional distribution of charge across a surface of area A is defined as Surface charge density, with units C/m2, is the amount of charge per square meter.

25. A Plane of Charge The electric field of an infinite plane of charge with surface charge density η is: For a positively charged plane, with η > 0, the electric field points away from the plane on both sides of the plane. For a negatively charged plane, with η < 0, the electric field points towards the plane on both sides of the plane.

30. A Disk of Charge

31. A Disk of Charge The on-axis electric field of a charged disk of radius R, centered on the origin with axis parallel to z, and surface charge density η = Q/πR2is NOTE: This expression is only valid for z > 0. The field for z < 0 has the same magnitude but points in the opposite direction.

32. A Sphere of Charge A sphere of charge Q and radius R, be it a uniformly charged sphere or just a spherical shell, has an electric field outside the sphere that is exactly the same as that of a point charge Q located at the center of the sphere:

33. The Parallel-Plate Capacitor • The figure shows two     electrodes, one with charge     +Q and the other with –Q     placed face-to-face a     distance d apart. • This arrangement of two     electrodes, charged equally     but oppositely, is called a     parallel-plate capacitor. • Capacitors play important     roles in many electric     circuits.

34. The Parallel-Plate Capacitor The electric field inside a capacitor is where A is the surface area of each electrode. Outside the capacitor plates, where E+ and E– have equal magnitudes but opposite directions, the electric field is zero.

38. Motion of a Charged Particle in an Electric Field The electric field exerts a force on a charged particle. If this is the only force acting on q, it causes the charged particle to accelerate with In a uniform field, the acceleration is constant:

39. Dipoles in an Electric Field The torque on a dipole in an electric field is where θ is the angle the dipole makes with the electric field.
