Ch5 – 4 AAE 590E Definitions/Observations Definitions/Observations Observations: There are two kinds of electric charges: Positive & Negative. Like charges repel each other; unlike charges attract each other. Charge Mobility: Frictional electricity, Motion strongly depending on the nature of material/substance. Definitions: A “Point Charge” is defined as a charged object whose radius is very small compared to the distance between it and other charged objects of interest. The special case, where all source charges are STATIONARY , though the test charge may be moving, is called ELECTROSTATICS . Conductors: charges move easily. Insulators: charge experience NO or little movement.
Ch5 – 5 AAE 590E Coulomb’s Law Coulomb’s Law French physicist Charles Augustin Coulomb (1736-1806) 1785, Coulomb conducted experiments with a torsion balance to explore the law of forces between electrical charges. Coulomb establish a relationship between force and distance, quantitatively. Later expended to capture relative size of charges: Coulomb’s Law describes the electric force between two point-like electrically charged objects: NOTE: Coulomb’s Law holds only for Point Charges! !

Ch5 – 6 AAE 590E Definition of Electric Field Definition of Electric Field Definition: Faraday invented the concept of force field lines. He defined that: the direction of force lines coincides with direction of electric field at that point, the density of force lines is proportional to the strength of the field. The “virtual force”, which charged particles experience, is called ELECTRIC FIELD. Electric Field: NOTE: The word field has a special meaning in mathematical physics. A field is a physical quantity that has a value at every location in space. Its value can be a scalar or vector. + q Test _ q Test + ! E = ! F q N C ! " # \$ % & + q 2 + Q Source + ! E 1 ! F 2 !

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
