  45. 45. The Quantity of Charge The quantity of charge (q) can be defined in terms of the number of electrons, but the Coulomb (C) is a better unit for later work. A temporary definition might be as given below: The Coulomb: 1 C = 6.25 x 1018 electrons The Coulomb: 1 C = 6.25 x 1018 electronsWhich means that the charge on a single electron is: 1 electron: e-- = -1.6 x 10-19 C 1 electron: e = -1.6 x 10-19 C
  46. 46. Units of ChargeThe coulomb (selected for use with electriccurrents) is actually a very large unit for staticelectricity. Thus, we often encounter a need touse the metric prefixes. 1 µC = 1 x 10-6 C 1 µC = 1 x 10-6 C 1 nC = 1 x 10-9 C 1 nC = 1 x 10-9 C 1 pC = 1 x 10-12 C 1 pC = 1 x 10-12 C

  52. 52. 16.5 Coulomb’s Law The force is along the line connecting thecharges, and is attractive if the charges areopposite, and repulsive if they are the same.
  53. 53. 16.5 Coulomb’s LawUnit of charge: coulomb, CThe proportionality constant in Coulomb’slaw is then: Charges produced by rubbing are typically around a microcoulomb:

  55. 55. 16.5 Coulomb’s LawThe proportionality constant k can also bewritten in terms of , the permittivity of freespace: (16-2)
  56. 56. Problem-Solving Strategies1. Read, draw, and label a sketch showing all given information in appropriate SI units.2. Do not confuse sign of charge with sign of forces. Attraction/Repulsion determines the direction (or sign) of the force.3. Resultant force is found by considering force due to each charge independently. Review module on vectors, if necessary.4. For forces in equilibrium: ΣFx = 0 = ΣFy = 0.
  57. 57. 16.5 Coulomb’s LawCoulomb’s law strictly applies only to point charges.Superposition: for multiple point charges, the forceson each charge from every other charge can becalculated and then added as vectors.
