Physics 202 Tuesday, February 2, 1999 Announcements: Sample exams are available on the class web page . Review sessions for Tuesday's exam will be announced in class on Thursday. You will be allowed to use one sheet of 8 1/2" by 11" paper during the exam. Be sure to include any equations or constants you may need to use. Use of calculators on the exam is permitted and be sure to bring a pencil. Lecture notes: More on Gauss' Law What if the surface is curved and the electric field is not constant? Then ∆Φ = E i x A i ; Φ = Σ E i x A i = lim ( A i approaches 0) E i x A i = Ι E i x A i I is the integral symbol Gauss' Law The net electric field flux, Φ , through a closed surface is proportional to the net charge enclosed by the surface. Φ = q/ ε o Example: The net electric flux through each surface is the same.

In the following situation, the net flux is zero. Example: Problem 6 from text The charges on a neutral isolated conductor is separated by a nearby positively charged rod. What is the net flux through each of the five gaussian (closed) surfaces?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
