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 12, 2013 2 Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C.
