Quiz 1 Info It will be a Scantron test covering all of Chapter 15 (reading, lecture, homework, etc). A list of equations, constants, and conversions will be provided on the quiz. You are to write the version of your test on the Scantron form. You will be given a Quiz Code Number that you will be your Quiz ID for the rest of the quarter. You are expected to abide by UC Policy on Integrity of Scholarship.
Electric Field Lines A convenient aid for visualizing electric ±eld patterns is to draw lines pointing in the direction of the ±eld vector at any point. These lines are called electric ±eld lines. For a lone positive charge the ±eld lines would radiate outward symmetrically. At any point, the electric ±eld vector will point in the direction of the electric ±eld lines.

Electric Field Lines For a lone negative charge the feld lines would radiate inward symmetrically. The number o± lines per unit area is proportional to the strength o± the electric feld in the given region. Know the electric feld lines well ±or the lone positive and lone negative charges. All other charge confgurations will be combinations o± lone positive and lone negative charges.
Electric Field Lines There are some rules for electric ±eld lines: 1) Electric ±eld lines can only begin on positive charges. 2) Electric ±eld lines can only terminate on negative charges. 3) No two ±eld lines can cross.
