Unformatted text preview: sheet. •  The field is directed either toward or away from the sheet. Parallel Plate Capacitor •  The device consists of plates of posi1ve and nega1ve charge. •  The total electric field between the plates is given by •  The field outside the plates is zero. Electric Poten1al Energy •  The Coulomb force is a conserva1ve force. •  It is possible to define an electrical poten1al energy func1on with this force. •  Work done by a conserva1ve force is equal to the nega1ve of the change in poten1al energy. Work and Poten1al Energy •  There is a uniform field between the two plates. •  As the charge moves from A to B, wo...
