5 Continuous charge distributions Electric field of a number of charges is the sum of the fields of the individual charges: For continuous charge distributions sum, becomes an integral: 6 Point charges Electric field of point charge q ! r is unit vector pointing from charge to point where you’re calculating field ! r always points away from charge ˆ ˆ 7 Math subtlety: Both the charge q and the unit vector r carry sign/direction information ˆ 8 +Q Charge is positive ! q = +Q ! kq/r 2 is positive Simplest Case ! P

9 +Q Charge is positive ! q = +Q ! kq/r 2 is positive Coordinates of point P are “more positive” than coordinates of charge ! x- and y- components of unit vector are postive » point in +x and +y direction Simplest Case (2)
