Unformatted text preview: I and III None are true Excess charge on a conductor in electrostatic equilibrium is uniform at the surface is NOT true in GENERAL. This is true in only special cases with lots of symmetry (planar, cylindrical and spherical). Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C. Palmer August 19, 2013 8   General   Form study groups   Do problems together   Make sure everyone in your group can do each type of problem   About physics content   You must be able to use Gauss’s Law.   It will be on the next exam.   Gauss’s Law and other topics related to electric flux (and magnetic flux) will certainly be on the final.   Draw pictures and force diagrams   Make flashcards for material properties Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C. Palmer August 19, 2013 9 Physics Concept Components Learning Outcome Electric Force and Fields Evaluate the forces of charged objects on one another. Evaluate value and magnitude of electric Charge and its analogy to fields at arbitrary points in space. mass Evaluate the potential differences between objects (surfaces and points). Coulomb’s Law and its analogy to gravity Calculate flux with surface integrals. Electric Fields Deduce electric fields using Gauss’s Law. Electric Flux Discern between electric potential and electric Gauss’s Law potential energy Electric Potential Compute electric field and potential for point Capacitance charges Material Properties Evaluate the potential differences between charged objects (surfaces and points). Compute electric field and potential from charge distributions Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C.
