Samuel Dzifanu PHY 121 Lab 201 Lab 201 – Electric Field by Point Charges Samuel Dzifanu Group Members: Arianit Agushi , Crystal Ramjattan Objective: Using MATLAB, compute analyze data, do simulation, modeling and produce graphical design of electric field caused by point charges. Theoretical Background: An electric field is said to exist anywhere a force is felt on a positive test charge. The positive test charge will creates a path segment of a “filed map”. It is going from positive charge to negative charge. The map lines have a direction to them. The direction show how positive test charge is moving when placed at different points around the field. Besides that, the field lines also never cross each other. The closer the field lines are to each other, the greater the field intensity or field strength. The electric field (E) of two charges (q) is calculated by: = + - E 14πε0qr2cosθi 14πε0qr2cos90 θj
