  1. AP Physics III.A Electrostatics

  2. 18.1 Origin of Electricity

  3. The Fundamental Charge (Robert Millikan and his oil drop experiment)

  4. Ex. How many electrons are in two Coulombs of negative charge?

  5. 18.2 Charged Objects and Electric Force

  6. Law of Conservation of Charge – during any one process, net electrical charge of an isolated system remains constant.

  7. Ex. Two identical isolated conducting spheres, one with charge -6 μC and another with net charge +2 μC are allowed to touch. If the two spheres have the same net charge after touching, what is the net charge on each sphere?

  8. Attractions and repulsions

  9. 18.3 Conductors and Insulators

  10. 18.4 Charging by Induction and Conduction (also known as, “I wish I had a decent electroscope”)

  11. Charging by Conduction

  12. Charging by Induction

  13. Induced charge on an insulator

  14. 18.5 (Charles De) Coulomb’s Law

  15. “Hmm, this looks like something I’ve seen before”

  16. Ex. An electron “orbits” the proton of a hydrogen atom at an average distance of 0.53 EE 10-10 m. What is the force that the proton exerts on the electron? What is the velocity of the electron for a circular orbit?

  17. Ex. Two charges exert electrical force F on each other. If the magnitude of each charge is doubled and the distance between them is halved, what is the force F′ on each charge in terms of F?

  18. Electric forces and vectors

  19. Ex. Three Charges in a Line

  20. Ex. Three Charges in a Plane

  21. p. 552: 3-5, 7, 11, 15, 19, 21, 23, 79B7 • 3.4 EE -17 kg, mA > mB 79B7 • FBD b)

  22. 18.6 Electric Field

  23. A mass in a gravitational field

  24. Charges experience an electrostatic force due to the presence of other charges

  25. Force per Coulomb is the definition of an electric field (“show me the formula”)

  26. An electric field is a vector that has a direction that the force exerts on a positive test charge.

  27. Some examples

  28. Ex. Find the electric force on a proton placed in an electric field of 2.0 EE 4 N/C that is directed along the positive x-axis.

  29. Electric fields are vectors. The net electric field at a point in space can be determined by considering the contributions of each charged object and adding them together as vectors.

  30. Electric field produced by a point charge

  31. Ex. Electric Field Between Two Point Charges. Two point charges are separated by a distance of 0.100 m. One has a charge of –25.0 μC and the other 50.0 μC. a) What is the magnitude and direction of the electric field at point P between them 0.020 m from the negative charge? b) If an electron is placed at rest at P, what is the magnitude and direction of its initial acceleration?

  32. Symmetry and the electric field.

  33. 18.7 Electric Field Lines

  34. Field lines around positive and negative charges

  35. Field lines between plates of a capacitor.

  36. Field lines between two dipoles

  37. Field lines between two identical charges

  38. p. 553: 25, 29, 31, 35-37; 81B3 • a) 182 N/C b) 312 N/C 81B3 • FBD b) E = 5800 N/C, FT = 0.058 N c) drawing

  39. 19.1 Electric Potential Energy

  40. Work done on a charge in a uniform electric field

  41. Let’s clarify but not overemphasize the signs

  42. 19.2 Electric Potential Difference

  43. Let’s look at “gravitational potential” first

  44. OK, now electric potential

  45. So change in electric potential is . . .

  46. Electric potential decreases or increases not because the field exerts any more or less force (the field is uniform – like gravity near the Earth’s surface). V changes because of distance. A charge released in the field, traveling a greater distance converts more of its Ue to K (like dropping an object from a greater height).

  47. Everyday examples

  48. Potential (and therefore potential difference) is scalar (this will simplify some things).

  49. Summary • Electric potential energy – energy a charge has because of its potential in an electric field (so far the field is uniform) • Electric potential – electric potential energy per unit charge • Potential difference – change in electric potential

  50. Another formula and an hilarious story about twin boll weevils.
