B A What is the change in potential energy in going from A to B? F qE F Hq W AB = qED PE AB = qED PE AB = q V AB V AB = ED AB W AB = qED Only applies when the field is uniform over the distance. V AB ‘s sign depends on the direction of E. In this case it’s positive.

d=2cm What happens to σ when the plates are moved twice as far apart? 0 ε σ = E d V = N/C 10 5 02 . 0 1000 4 × = = E 0 σ= 4 12 10 5 ) 10 8 . 8 ( × × = - 2 7 C/m 10 5 . 4 - × = The E-field and σ would both be one half the size. V=1000V
