Unformatted text preview: l charge.   The outcome is that charge is distributed ON THE SURFACE of the conductor.   If the surface is pointy, then that is farther anyway and the charge accumulates there.   If there is significant symmetry, then on a smooth conductor the charge will be uniformly distributed. Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C. Palmer August 5, 2013 35   Inside of a conductor the electric field is zero.   The electric field outside a conductor is normal (perpendicular) to the surface. – – – |E|=0 – – –   This is in accordance to the rules for field lines   The lines begin/end at charges. Physics 1B - Summer Session 1 - C. Palmer July 2, 2013 36   Go to khanacademy.org   You can login with a google account, facebook or your email address   Go to Learn Science & Engineering Physics   Then go to “Electricity and magnetism” on the right   This site has some great lectures/walk-through of problems   “Electrostatics (part 1): Introduction to Charge and Coulomb's Law” ~ 15 minutes   Charge and Coulomb’s Law example   Also, start the chapter 21 problems   It’s a good idea to get ahead now.
