Uniformly Charged Disk Edge On
Two disks of opposite charges, s << R : charges distribute uniformly: + Q - Q s A single metal disk cannot be uniformly charged: charges repel and concentrate at the edges We will calculate E both inside and outside of the disk close to the center Two uniformly charged metal disks placed very near each other Almost all the charge is nearly uniformly distributed on the inner surfaces of the disks; very little charge on the outer 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.
