Electric Charge, Forces, and Fields
Electric Charge We already know: Electric charge is a fundamental property of matter There are two electric charges: positive or negative (arbitrarily named) The atom consists of a small positive nucleus surrounded by a negative electron cloud
Electric Charge Like charges repel; unlike charges attract. As with Mass/Energy:  Charge is conserved The net charge of an isolated system remains constant. This is another fundamental law in physics
Electric Charge SI unit of charge: the coulomb, C. All charges in nature are integer multiples of the charge on the electron:
Conductors Most atoms hold on to their electrons tightly and are insulators. In aluminum, the valence electrons are essentially free and strongly repel each other. Any external influence which moves one of them will cause a repulsion of other electrons which propagates, "domino fashion" through the conductor.  In a conducting material, the outer electrons of the atoms are loosely bound and free to move through the material.
Conductors ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Electrostatic Charging Objects can have excess charge of one polarity or another. An electroscope may be used to determine if an object is electrically charged.
Electrostatic Charging An electroscope can be given a net charge by conduction – when it is touched with a charged object, the excess charges flow freely onto the electroscope.
Electric Force The force exerted by one charged particle on another is given by:
Electric Force If there are multiple charges, the force vectors must be added to get the net force on another charge. We can say that charges produce an “electric field” (and similarly, masses produce a “gravitational field”). The field describes the force felt by a test charge if it were placed into the field
Electric Field Definition of the electric field: force on a charge if there were a charge The direction of the field is the direction the force would be on a positive charge. 
Electric Field Charges create electric fields, and these fields in turn exert electric forces on other charges. Electric field of a point charge: (Pointing away from the charge)
Electric Field For multiple charges, the total electric field is found using the superposition principle: For a configuration of charges, the total, or net, electric field at any point is the vector sum of the electric fields due to the individual charges.
Electric Field Example: electric field from three point charges Three point charges are located on a circular arc as shown in the figure below. (Take  r  = 3 cm. Let to the right be the + x  direction and up along the screen be the + y  direction.) Answer: from symmetry, E has no y-component, the x component is given by: = same field as if a single charge with +1 nC was located at the point where the negative charge is
Electric Field ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],It’s convenient to represent the electric field using electric field lines. These lines are drawn so the field is along the line at every point.
Electric Field: examples Electric field lines of a dipole: A dipole is an arrangement of charge with positive charge on one end and negative charge on the other.  From far away, the dipole is “invisible”, i.e. it looks neutral.  Close to the dipole, the electric field looks as drawn on the left.
Electric Field: examples Electric field lines of a dipole: Threads in oil with two charged spheres: threads have electric dipole and so line up with field, can “see” electric fierd lines
Electric Field: examples Electric field lines due to very large parallel plates: Superposition: fields not normal to surface cancel
Electric Field: examples ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Electric Field Often, tricks and symmetry considerations can help us find electric fields in a problem. Consider equal 8 charges arranged equally spaced around a circle: What’s E-field at P, center of the circle?  What if we take one charge away? Taking one charge away is the same as adding a negative charge to that position. Superposition principle says the E-field is the same as the field coming from one negative charge
Conductors and Electric Fields Electric charges are free to move within a conductor; therefore, there cannot be a static field within the conductor: 1) The electric field is zero inside a conductor Excess charges on a conductor will repel each other, and will wind up being as far apart as possible. 2) Any excess charge on a conductor resides entirely on the surface of the conductor There cannot be any component of the electric field parallel to the surface of a conductor; otherwise charges would move. 3) The electric field at the surface of a charged conductor is perpendicular to the surface
Conductors and Electric Fields
Conductors and Electric Fields The force from neighboring charges is less when the curvature of the surface is large: Excess charge tends to accumulate at sharp points, or locations of highest curvature, on charged conductors. As a result, the electric field is greatest at such locations.
Conductors and Electric Fields Electric field is strongest near sharp points: That is why lightning rods have sharp points, and why lightning strikes buildings with sharp points. Lightning happens when an electric field in the Earths atmosphere becomes so large that electrons are ripped off of atoms in the air

  • 14. Electric Field Example: electric field from three point charges Three point charges are located on a circular arc as shown in the figure below. (Take  r  = 3 cm. Let to the right be the + x direction and up along the screen be the + y  direction.) Answer: from symmetry, E has no y-component, the x component is given by: = same field as if a single charge with +1 nC was located at the point where the negative charge is

  • 16. Electric Field: examples Electric field lines of a dipole: A dipole is an arrangement of charge with positive charge on one end and negative charge on the other. From far away, the dipole is “invisible”, i.e. it looks neutral. Close to the dipole, the electric field looks as drawn on the left.
  • 17. Electric Field: examples Electric field lines of a dipole: Threads in oil with two charged spheres: threads have electric dipole and so line up with field, can “see” electric fierd lines

  • 20. Electric Field Often, tricks and symmetry considerations can help us find electric fields in a problem. Consider equal 8 charges arranged equally spaced around a circle: What’s E-field at P, center of the circle? What if we take one charge away? Taking one charge away is the same as adding a negative charge to that position. Superposition principle says the E-field is the same as the field coming from one negative charge
  • 21. Conductors and Electric Fields Electric charges are free to move within a conductor; therefore, there cannot be a static field within the conductor: 1) The electric field is zero inside a conductor Excess charges on a conductor will repel each other, and will wind up being as far apart as possible. 2) Any excess charge on a conductor resides entirely on the surface of the conductor There cannot be any component of the electric field parallel to the surface of a conductor; otherwise charges would move. 3) The electric field at the surface of a charged conductor is perpendicular to the surface
  • 23. Conductors and Electric Fields The force from neighboring charges is less when the curvature of the surface is large: Excess charge tends to accumulate at sharp points, or locations of highest curvature, on charged conductors. As a result, the electric field is greatest at such locations.
  • 24. Conductors and Electric Fields Electric field is strongest near sharp points: That is why lightning rods have sharp points, and why lightning strikes buildings with sharp points. Lightning happens when an electric field in the Earths atmosphere becomes so large that electrons are ripped off of atoms in the air
