PHY2049: Chapter 22 6 Field Between Two Charged Parallel Plates Î Assume plates are much larger than separation ± E is approx. constant between plates ± E is zero outside the plates ± This is a capacitor! Î E points from + plate to – plate Î We will calculate E in Chap. 23 ± Gauss’ law ± Proportional to surface charge density
PHY2049: Chapter 22 7 1. Rank magnitude of E at P 1 , P 2 , P 3 . Assume charges on rings are +q and +q

PHY2049: Chapter 22 8 Answer to Question #1 Î P 1 has E = 0 since it is equidistant from ring A and B and they are same sign. Î P 3 has largest E because it has contributions from ring A and B Î P 2 has no contribution from ring B because it is at the center, thus it is only affected by ring A.
