7/6/09 LAU/PHYS 1302 Chapter 19 12-8 Coulomb’s Law F = k q 1 q 2 r 2 k = 1 4 πε 0 = 8.99 × 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 r F 12 = - r F 21 SI unit for charge: coulomb (C)
7/6/09 LAU/PHYS 1302 Chapter 19 12-9 Electric forces, compared to gravity, are very strong! Electric force between a proton and an electron F q = k q 1 q 2 r 2 = (8.99 × 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 ) × (1.6 × 10 - 19 C ) × (1.6 × 10 - 19 C ) (1.0 m ) 2 = 2.3 × 10 - 28 N The ratio of electric force to gravity = F q F g = 2.3 × 10 - 28 N 1.0 × 10 - 67 N = 2.2 × 10 39 ! Force due to gravity F g = G m 1 m 2 r 2 = (6.67 × 10 - 11 N m 2 / kg 2 ) × (1.67 × 10 - 27 kg ) × (9.10 × 10 - 31 kg ) (1.0 m ) 2 = 1.0 × 10 - 67 N
