Unformatted text preview: Craig Ogilvie Where we stand Â§ Ways to calculate E-field â€“ Coulomb law, vector superposition â€“ Or use symmetry to find field => Gauss law Â§ From E, can calculate V, Craig Ogilvie 11 q generates E-field, V in all space 2nd q experiences force due to E-field, has potential energy due to V âˆ« âˆ« = â‹… Îµ enclosed q A d E l d E V f i âˆ« â‹…- = âˆ† Craig Ogilvie Goals for today Â§ Gain more experience with â€“ Electrostatic potential V(x,y,z) â€“ Gauss law to calculate E-field Craig Ogilvie 22 Craig Ogilvie 1.
