September 18, 2009 Ch. 24: Electric Potential - Part C 6 Calculating the Field from the Potential 0 dW dU q dV =− ! Consider a family of closely spaced equipotential surfaces, with a potential difference between each pair of adjacent surfaces of dV . ! At any point P the electric field E is perpendicular to the equipotential surface through P. ! Let a positive test charge q 0 move through a displacement ds from one equipotential surface to the adjacent surface. The work done by the electric field during the move is: 00 (cos ) d WF d sq E d E d s θ =⋅ = = !!
