Exam 2
• (Ch23) Gauss’s Law
• (Ch24) Sec.11 (Electric Potential Energy of a
System of Point Charges); Sec.12 (Potential of
Charged Isolated Conductor)
• (Ch 25) Capacitors: capacitance and capacitors;
caps in parallel and in series, dielectrics; energy, field
and potential in capacitors.
• Gauss’ law:  =q/0 . Given the field, what is the
charge enclosed? Given the charges, what is the
flux? Use it to deduce formulas for electric field.
• Electric potential:
•
•
•
•
•
– What is the potential produced by a system of charges?
(Several point charges, or a continuous distribution)
Electric field lines, equipotential surfaces: lines go from
+ve to –ve charges; lines are perpendicular to
equipotentials; lines (and equipotentials) never cross each
other…
Electric potential, work and potential energy: work to bring
a charge somewhere is W = –qV (signs!). Potential energy
of a system = negative work done to build it.
Conductors: field and potential inside conductors, and on
the surface.
Shell theorem: systems with spherical symmetry can be
thought of as a single point charge (but how much charge?)
Symmetry, and “infinite” systems.
Gauss’ law
At each point on the surface of the cube shown in Fig. 24-26,
the electric field is in the z direction. The length of each edge
of the cube is 2.3 m. On the top surface of the cube E = -38 k
N/C, and on the bottom face of the cube E = +11 k N/C.
Determine the net charge contained within the cube.

Gauss’s Law: Cylinder, Plane, Sphere
Problem: Gauss’ Law to Find E
Gauss’ law
A long, non conducting, solid cylinder of radius 4.1 cm has a
nonuniform volume charge density that is a function of
the radial distance r from the axis of the cylinder, as given
by r = Ar2, with A = 2.3 µC/m5.
(a)What is the magnitude of the electric field at a radial
distance of 3.1 cm from the axis of the cylinder?
(b)What is the magnitude of the electric field at a radial
distance of 5.1 cm from the axis of the cylinder?
The figure shows conducting plates with area A=1m2, and the
potential on each plate. Assume you are far from the edges of the
plates.
• What is the electric field between the plates in each case?
• What (and where) is the charge density on the plates in case (1)?
• What happens to an electron released midway between the
plates in case (1)?
Electric potential, electric potential energy,
work
In Fig. 25-39, point P is at the center of the rectangle. With V
= 0 at infinity, what is the net electric potential in terms of q/d
at P due to the six charged particles?
Derive an expression in terms of q2/a for the work required to
set up the four-charge configuration of Fig. 25-50, assuming
the charges are initially infinitely far apart.
The electric potential at points in an xy plane is given by V =
(2.0 V/m2)x2 - (4.0 V/m2)y2. What are the magnitude and
direction of the electric field at point (3.0 m, 3.0 m)?
Potential Energy of A System of Charges
• 4 point charges (each +Q) are
connected by strings, forming a
square of side L
• If all four strings suddenly snap,
what is the kinetic energy of each
charge when they are very far
apart?
• Use conservation of energy:
– Final kinetic energy of all four charges
= initial potential energy stored =
energy required to assemble the system
of charges
