F E≡ q 40 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 3 Electric Potential from E field • Consider the three points A, B, and C located in a region of constant electric field as shown. D ∆x BB BB • What is the sign of ∆VAC = VC - VA ? (A) ∆VAC < 0 (B) ∆VAC = 0 (C) ∆VAC > 0 • Remember the definition C ∆VA→C = − ∫ E ⋅ dl A C • Choose a path (any will do!) D D D C A ∆VA→C = 0 − ∫ E ⋅ dl = − E∆x < 0 ∆VA→C = − ∫ E ⋅ dl − ∫ E ⋅ dl 40 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 4 Preflight 6 A B C D BB 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 A B C D • Remember the definition B ∆VA→ B = − ∫ E ⋅ dl A 08 ∆V A→ B = 0 V is constant !! Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 5 E from V • If we can get the potential by integrating the electric field: b ∆Va →b = − ∫ E ⋅ dl a • We should be able to get the electric field by differentiating the potential?? E = −∇V • In Cartesian coordinates: Ex = − ∂V dx Ey = − ∂V dy ∂V Ez = − dz 40 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 6 Preflight 2 A B C D BB 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 A B C D “The point with highest electric potential will also have the greatest E-FIELD. “ FIELD. “The E-Field is greatest at pt. B because at that pt the slope is the steepest. “ teepest. “Since at point C the electrical potential energy is lowest, the kinetic energy will be Since highest, and therefore the magnitude of the E-Field will be greatest. “ highest, Field • How do we get E from V?? E = −∇V 08 Ex = − ∂V dx Look at slopes !!! Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 7 Preflight 4 A B C D BB 50 40 30 20 10 0 A B C D “The direction of the E-field is along the x-axis at point B because the slope of the V graph at point B is negative. “ “The direction of the E-field is along the negative x-axis at point C because E= -dV/dr so the derivative must be positive for the electric field to point in the negative x direction and this occurs at point C.” • How do we get E from V?? E = −∇V 08 Ex = − ∂V dx Look at slopes !!! Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 8 Equipotentials • Equipotentials are the locus of points having the same potential Equipotentials produced by a point charge Equipotentials are ALWAYS perpendicular to the electric field lines The SPACING of the equipotentials indicates The STRENGTH of the electric field 40 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 9 Preflight 7 A B C D 100 80 60 40 20 0 A B C D “The E-field lines at D are the least dense. “ 08 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 10 10 Preflight 9 A B C D BB 40 30 20 10 0 A B C D A B C D “The E-field lines are more dense from A to B than C to D, so its going to be harder to move a negative charged between the A and B. “ “C to D is farther away so more work will be needed to move it.” “A,C and B,D are on the same equipotential lines, so it will require the same amount of work. “ 08 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 11 11 HINT What are these ? A B C D BB ELECTRIC FIELD LINES !! What are these ? EQUIPOTENTIALS !! • What is the sign of WAC = work done by E field to move negative charge from A to C ? (A) WAC < 0 (B) WAC = 0 (C) WAC > 0 A and C are on the same equipotential 08 Equipotentials are perpendicular to the E field: No work is done along an equipotential WAC = 0 !! Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 12 12 Preflight 9 Again? A B C D BB 40 30 20 10 0 A B C D A B C D • A and C are on the same equipotential • B and D are on the same equipotential • Therefore the potential difference between A and B is the SAME as the potential between C and D 08 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 13 13 Preflight 11 A B C D BB 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 A B C D A B C D “Moving from A-D is across a greater distance, so it requires more work. “ “Again the change in potential is the same, because B and D are on the same equipotential line... so work done is the same. “ 08 Physics 212 Lecture 6, Slide 14 14 cross-section a4 a3 Homework Problem +Q a2 a1 +q metal Point charge q at center of concentric conducting spherical shells of radii a1, a2, a3, and a4.
