Lab 203: Electric Potential Name : William Savastano Object : To calculate the electric potential due to a charge and draw a contour and surface plots of the electric potential using matlab. Theory : For a given charge q the scalar electrostatic potential V at point (x,y) is given by three formulas. >> clear all >> q=1*10^-9; >> esp0=8.85*10^-12 >> k=1./(4*pi*esp0); >> k=1./(4*pi*esp0); >> x=-2.1:0.2:2.1; >> y=-2.1:0.2:2.1 >> [X,Y]=meshgrid(x,y); >> r=sqrt((X-1).^2+(Y-1).^2); >> V=k*q./r; >> [c,h] = contour(x,y,V,20); >> clabel(c,h); xlabel 'x'; ylabel 'y' >> surf(x,y,V) >> [px,py]=gradient(V,.1,.1); >> quiver(x,y,-px,-py,2) >> xlabel 'x'; ylabel 'y'

    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.
