Music Who is the Artist? A) Eric Clapton B) Bill Frisell C) Jimmy Page D) Jeff Beck E) Buddy Guy Why? Maybe Someone Less Obscure?? Also, my vote for most memorable performance at New Orleans Jazzfest by a big name! Somewhere over the Rainbow People Get Ready Amazing…. Physics 212 Lecture 3

Physics 212 Lecture 3, Slide 3 Your Comments “Where did "epsilon not" come from and what is its value?.” 04 2 ˆ q E k r r = arrowrightnosp 2 0 1 ˆ 4 q E r r πε = arrowrightnosp k = 9 x 10 9 N m 2 / C 2 ε 0 = 8.85 x 10 -12 C 2 / N m 2 IT’S JUST A CONSTANT ! “I always understand the material so much better after the lectures and especially the clicker questions” That’s what we hope happens!! “What is the difference between E times A and E "dot" A?” VECTORS: dot product ! “Will we ever be expected to take surface integrals, and if so can you discuss them in a little more depth?” “Are we going to actually use calculus now?” “Why is there a specific number of lines coming from a particle? Aren't electric fields radial, so wouldn't the lines be infinite?” Field lines are a REPRESENTATION ! You can choose number of lines produced by 1 Coulomb. YOU BET! Integrals will be easy to evaluate, though.. We will use Gauss’ law next time to calculate E fields !! “It's my friend Ben Wallace's birthday tomorrow during the Tuesday lecture! Can you put it on the board for me please?”

Physics 212 Lecture 3, Slide 4 My Comments You will need to understand integrals in this course!!! Forces and Fields are Vectors Always Draw a Picture First… What do the Forces/Fields Look Like? Prelecture Infinite line of charge E Lecture Finite line of charge (constant λ ) E Worked Example Finite line of charge (non-constant λ ) E Homework Arc of charge (constant λ ) E 2 2 0 1 ˆ ˆ 4 dq dq E k r r r r πε = = arrowrightnosp WORKS FOR ALL !! “The 1/4 shell problem on the homework was not explained extensively enough in the smart physicsbook.” The “1/4 shell problem” is not special !!

    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.

    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.
