Electric Field of a Continuous Charge Distribution (23.5) Divide the charge distribution into small charge elements, Δ q . Determine the E-field at the point of interest, Δ E , due to Δ q : r r q k E e ˆ 2 Sum/integrate over the entire charge distribution to obtain the E-field: r r dq k r r q k E e i i i i q e i ˆ ˆ lim 2 2 0 3
For a symmetric surface charge, select a ring of charge. If the width of the ring is dr , then: dr r dA dq ) 2 ( 4 For a spherical volume, select a spherical shell of charge. If the width of the shell is dr , then: ) 4 ( 2 dr r dV dq Example of volume and surface integration
