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

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
