E are the two governing fundamental differential

This preview shows page 27 - 30 out of 65 pages.

E are the two governing fundamental differential equations for electrostatics in any medium. v is the volume density of free charges From equation (X), v v vdv Ddv 0 or using Gauss’ law s Q ds D …… Generalized Gauss’ law Gauss law states that the total outward flux of the electric displacement (or simply, the total outward electric flux) over any closed surface is equal to the total free charge enclosed in the surface. For a linear and isotropic dielectric medium, E X P E P e o where X e is the electric susceptibility. A dielectric medium is linear if Xe is independent of E and is homogenous if Xe is independent of space coordinate. But P E D o E E E e o e o o 1

The maximum electric field intensity that a dielectric material air withstands without breakdown is the dielectric strength of the material. 2.2.5 BOUNDARY CONDITIONS FOR ELECTROSTATIC FIELDS ∆h ∆w b a d c E 1 E 2 ∆h D 1 a n2 a n1 D 2 ∆s Medium 2 Medium1 Fig.13Electrostatic Fields at the boundary of dielectric media w cd ba h ad bc 0 Contribution of the line integral of E along abcda is w E w E dl E abcda 2 1 As 0 h i.e. E 1 and E 2 at equipotential 0 2 1 w E w E t t t t E E 2 1 : The tangential component of an E-field is continuous across an interface E D or D E 2 2 1 1 t t D D

    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.

    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.

    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.
