Unformatted text preview: Calculating E from Gauss' Law: Charged Slab Consider a uniformly charged slab. Charge per unit volume on slab: . Use Gaussian cylinder as shown. Total electric flux: E = 2|Ez |A. Net charge inside: Qin = ( ( 2A|z| 2Aa (|z| a) (|z| a) (|z| a) (|z| a) Gauss' law: 2|Ez |A = 2A|z| 0 2Aa 0 Electric field: Ez = 8 a > - 0 < > : (z -a) (-a z a) (z a) z 0 a 0 16/1/2008 [tsl373 1/1 ...
