Potential and Continuous Charge Distributions Potential and Continuous Charge Distributions We can use two completely different methods: 1. 1. Or, Find from Gauss’s Law, then… , r dq k dV e = = source e r dq k V E , s d E dV - = - = - B A A B s d E V V
Potential and Electric Field Potential and Electric Field Since y V E y V E x V E y y x - = - = - = , s d E dV - = therefore, we have: Hence: V k z V j y V i x V E - = + + - = ) (
