The direction of the E is the same as the direction of a force on + (pos) charge. 4. The magnitude of E is given by the formula: F Electric Field E F N ; Units q C

Force on -q is against field direction. . -q F E r + ++ +Q + ++ + Electric Field The field E at a point exists whether there is a charge at that point or not. The direction of the field is away from the +Q charge.
- 5. Field Near a Negative Charge . E +q + F r - -Q- -- Electric Field Force on +q is with field direction. Force on -q is against field direction. F . -q - E r - -- -Q -Electric Field Note that the field E in the vicinity of a negative charge –Q is toward the charge—the direction that a +q test charge would move.
- 6. The Magnitude of E-Field The magnitude of the electric field intensity at a point in space is defined as the force per unit charge (N/C) that would be experienced by any test charge placed at that point. Electric Field Intensity E E F ; Units q N C The direction of E at a point is the same as the direction that a positive charge would move IF placed at that point.
- 7. Example 1. A +2 nC charge is placed at a distance r from a –8 C charge. If the +2 nC charge experiences a force of 4000 N, . +q + P what is the electric field intensity E at 4000 N point P? E E r First, we note that the direction of E is toward –Q (down). - -Q- - –8 C -- Electric Field E F q 4000 N -9 2 x 10 C E = 2 x 1012 N/C Downward Note: The field E would be the same for any charge placed at point P. It is a property of that space.
- 8. Example 2. A constant E field of 40,000 N/C is maintained between the two parallel plates. What are the magnitude and direction of the force on an electron that passes horizontally between the plates . The E-field is downward, and the force on e- is up.

- 10. Example 3. What is the electric field intensity E at point P, a distance of 3 m from a negative charge of –8 nC? First, find the magnitude: E=? . 9 Nm2 (9 x 10 C2 )(8 x 10-9C) kQ P r E 2 2 r (3 m) 3m -Q -8 nC E = 8.00 N/C The direction is the same as the force on a positive charge if it were placed at the point P: toward –Q. E = 8.00 N, toward -Q
- 11. The Resultant Electric Field The resultant field E in the vicinity of a number of point charges is equal to the vector sum of the fields due to each charge taken individually. Consider E for each charge. Vector Sum: E = E1 + E2 + E3 Magnitudes are from: E kQ r2 q1 ER E2 A E1 q3 - E3 + q2 Directions are based on positive test charge.
- 12. Example 4. Find the resultant field at point A due to the –3 nC charge and the +6 nC charge arranged as shown. E for each q is shown with direction given. -3 nC q1 - 3 cm E 5 cm 1 E2 A 4 cm E1 9 Nm2 C2 (9 x 10 +6 nC + q2 -9 )(3 x 10 C) (3 m) E1 2 E2 kq1 ; E2 2 r1 9 Nm2 C2 (9 x 10 kq2 r22 )(6 x 10-9C) (4 m)2 Signs of the charges are used only to find direction of E
- 13. Example 4. (Cont.) Find the resultant field at point A. The magnitudes are: -3 nC q1 - 3 cm E 5 cm 1 E1 +6 nC E2 A 4 cm E1 = 3.00 N, West + q2 E2 9 Nm2 C2 (9 x 10 (3 m)2 9 Nm2 C2 (9 x 10 2 E2 E2 = 3.38 N, North R12 ; tan )(6 x 10-9C) (4 m)2 Next, we find vector resultant ER ER )(3 x 10-9C) E1 E2 ER E1 E2

- 15. Electric Field Lines Electric Field Lines are imaginary lines drawn in such a way that their direction at any point is the same as the direction of the field at that point. + ++ + Q ++ ++ - -- -Q -- Field lines go away from positive charges and toward negative charges.
- 16. Examples of E-Field Lines Two equal but opposite charges. Two identical charges (both +). Notice that lines leave + charges and enter - charges. Also, E is strongest where field lines are most dense.
- 17. The Density of Field Lines Gauss’s Law: The field E at any point in space is proportional to the line density at that point. Gaussian Surface N Line density r A Radius r N A
- 18. Line Density and Spacing Constant Consider the field near a positive point charge q: Then, imagine a surface (radius r) surrounding q. Radius r r E is proportional to N/ A and is equal to kq/r2 at any point. N A Gaussian Surface N A Define 0 E Where E; kq 2 r E as spacing constant. Then: 0 is: 1 0 4 k
- 19. Permittivity of Free Space The proportionality constant for line density is known as the permittivity and it is defined by: 1 0 4 k 8.85 x 10-12 C2 2 N m Recalling the relationship with line density, we have: N A 0 E or N Summing over entire area A gives the total lines as: 0 E A N= oEA
- 20. Example 5. Write an equation for finding the total number of lines N leaving a single positive charge q. Draw spherical Gaussian surface: Radius r N r 0 E A and N 0 EA Substitute for E and A from: E Gaussian Surface N 0 EA 0 kq r2 q ; A = 4 r2 4 r2 q (4 r 2 ) 4 r2 N= oqA =q Total number of lines is equal to the enclosed charge q.
- 21. Gauss’s Law Gauss’s Law: The net number of electric field lines crossing any closed surface in an outward direction is numerically equal to the net total charge within that surface. N 0 EA If we represent q as net enclosed positive charge, we can write rewrite Gauss’s law as: q EA q 0
- 22. Example 6. How many electric field lines pass through the Gaussian surface drawn below. First we find the NET charge q enclosed by the surface: q = (+8 –4 – 1) = +3 C N 0 EA q N = +3 C = +3 x 10-6 lines Gaussian surface -4 C q1 -1 C q3 - +8 C q2 + q4 + +5 C
- 23. Example 7. A solid sphere (R = 6 cm) having net charge +8 C is inside a hollow shell (R = 8 cm) having a net charge of –6 C. What is the electric field at a distance of 12 cm from the center of the solid sphere? Draw Gaussian sphere at radius of 12 cm to find E.
