• Slides: 29 Coulombs Law Lecture-3 Coulombs Law Like charges repel, unlike charges attract. The electric force acting on a point charge q 1 as a result of the presence of a second point charge q 2 is given by Coulomb's Law: where e 0 = permittivity of space Quiz • A charge Q 1= 1 n. C is located at the origin in free space and another charge Q at (2, 0, 0). If the X – component of the electric field at (3, 1, 1) is zero, calculate the value of Q. Is the Y component zero at (3, 1, 1)? Ans: -3(3/11)1. 5 Q 1 Calculation of E: due to 1. Dipole, 2. Rod (line charge), Ring (Line charge), 3. Circular plate (surface charge), Square sheet, 4. Sphere or Cylinder (Volume charge density)  Gauss's Law • The total of the electric flux out of a closed surface is equal to the charge enclosed divided by the permittivity. • Electric Flux over a Closed Surface = Charge enclosed by the Surface divided by eo. da Φ= • +q eo = the permittivity of free space 8. 854 x 10 -12 C 2/(N m 2) = 1/4 pk) E Case(i) Charge is placed inside the body: da * Flux passing through an area da: E +q Total flux over a closed surface: Where dΩ is solid angle da E da cosθ +q dΩ Case(ii) Charge is placed outside the surface • Flux passing through AB: da +q • Flux passing through CD: A da B C E D Where dΩ is solid angle Net flux = 0 where Note: dΩ will remain same for but direction of the flux will be opposite. da E • A more intuitive statement: the total number of electric field lines entering or leaving a closed volume of space is directly proportional to the charge enclosed by the volume • If there is no net charge inside some volume of space then the electric flux over the surface of that volume is always equal to zero. . Electric Flux: The Electric Flux FE is the product of Component of the Electric Field Perpendicular to a surface times the surface area. -ve flux +ve Flux  Differential form of Gauss Law: Proof: Gauss Law Φ= Gauss divergence theorem: or Where D=ε 0 E, called Electric field displacement vector. Note: Gauss law is also known as Maxwell’s first equation. Quiz: 1. 2. 3. 4. How electric flux is related to number of electric field lines? How will you determine flux for nonuniform surfaces?
