Physics Concept Components Learning Outcome Electric Force and Fields Charge and its analogy to mass Coulomb’s Law and its analogy to gravity Electric Fields Electric Flux Gauss’s Law Electric Potential Capacitance Material Properties Evaluate the forces of charged objects on one another. Evaluate value and magnitude of electric fields at arbitrary points in space. Evaluate the potential differences between objects (surfaces and points). Calculate flux with surface integrals. Deduce electric fields using Gauss’s Law. Discern between electric potential and electric potential energy Compute electric field and potential for point charges Compute electric field and potential from charge distributions August 7, 2013 4 Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C.

Find dE Total from a single point in the distribution Use electric field from a single point Need to know what is your junk of charge You will need to know the charge density If the overall charge is infinite, charge density will be given. If the overall charge is finite, you may have to compute it. Recognize symmetry to cancel certain components of the dE Total Typically only one component will survive but not always August 7, 2013 5 Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C. Palmer
