Parallel Plates If we had a very large plane of positive charge, what would the electric field look like? The electric field would be uniform in both directions away from the positive plate. + + + + + + + + A positive charge on either side of the plate (top or bottom) would be repelled.

Parallel Plates What would be different if the plate were negative (but had the same magnitude of charge)? The electric field would flip direction (in toward the negative plate), but still have the same magnitude. – – – – A positive charge on either side of the plate (top or bottom) would be attracted.

Parallel Plates What would now happen if I place the plates close together and parallel to each other? The field would be twice as strong in between the plates, but would essentially disappear outside of the plates. + + + + + + + + – – – – What would the equipotential lines look like between the plates? Equipotential lines are evenly spaced!

We have created a device to use electric fields. We call this device a capacitor. We put opposite charges on two parallel plates and we create an electric field in between the plates. This is essentially storing energy between these plates. What limits how much energy/charge I can put on these plates? The geometry of the plates. Capacitors

    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.
