PHY2049: Chapter 23 2 Coulomb’s Law Gauss’ Law Derivation given in Sec. 23-5 (Read!) Not derived in this book (Requires vector calculus) equivalent We will focus on what is Gauss’ law and how we use it. Two Equivalent Laws for Electricity
PHY2049: Chapter 23 3 Electric Flux Î Simple definition of electric flux (E constant, flat surface) ± E at an angle θ to planar surface, area A ± Units = N m 2 / C (SI units) Î Simple example ± Let E = 10 4 N/C pass through 2m x 5m rectangle, 30 ° to normal ± φ E = 10 4 * 10 * cos(30 ° ) = 100,000 * 0.866 = 86,600 Î More general Φ E definition (E variable, curved surface) cos E EA θ Φ≡ = EA E S d Normal E
