Physics 222 Exam Review Outline • Overview/Mind-map • What each equation does • Practice Problems Sorry about the boring theme. • I couldn’t find a suitable theme that I liked, that didn’t mess up my text. • However, looking at green is said to increase creativity and stimulate brain function. May use this later. Useful tip: Storing variables in calculator • = 9 ∗ 109 • 0 = 8.85 ∗ 10−12 = −V Electric Force Multiply by q Electric Potential − Potential Energy =− Divide by q Electric Field ⋅ Capacitors Interacts with dipole Dipole Resistors Charge Overview • • • • • • Fluids Electric force -> Electric field Potential energy -> Electric potential E->V and V->E Capacitors and energy stored inside them Resistors = • This is the definition of Pressure: Force/Area = 0 + • Used to calculate the pressure at a depth of y in some medium, usually water. • Example: 5 m deep under the water, pressure=1.01 ∗ 105 + 103 ∗ 9.8 ∗ 5 = = • This is the continuity equation for fluid flow. • In English, it means that the amount of stuff going through a pipe is constant, so shrinking the pipe means that the water will go faster. 1 2 + + = 2 • Also known as Bernoulli’s Equation • Classic problem: calculating velocity of water shooting out of a hole in a container. – In the case that the radius of the hole is small, the velocity at the bottom simplifies to = 2 , where y is the distance from the water level to the hole. Questions? 1 2 = 2 = 0 • Just like electric force, but without the test charge q0. It’s still a vector. = 2 • Electric field of a point charge. Electric field lines go from + to -. • Also, line density indicates field strength = || • Dipole moment, BY DEFINITION • Notice: Dipole moment points from negative to positive….opposite of the direction E points =× • Torque on a dipole by the external electric field – Note that E is not the E produced by the dipole – E is external • Torque is maximum when dipole moment and E are perpendicular. = − ⋅ • Potential energy is minimum (also called stable equilibrium) when two things are true: – Dipole moment is parallel to E – Dipole moment points in the same direction as E. • Potential energy is maximum (also called unstable equilibrium) when two things are true: – Dipole moment is parallel to E. – Dipole moment points in the opposite direction as E. Questions? Φ = ⋅ = 0 • Also known as Gauss’s Law • Really there are two equations here…but they’re both equally valid…always. Steps in solving Gauss’s Law Problems – Draw a picture of the object. Pick a good Gaussian surface. – Write down the expression of Gauss’s Law that involves the dot product between E and A. (If E is perpendicular to A, the flux is 0 for that surface. Otherwise, use symmetry to get rid of the integral.) – Write down the expression of Gauss’s Law that involves the total charge q. – Set the two expressions equal to each other and eliminate variables. 2 = • Electric field a distance r away from a long wire with charge density . =± 2 • This one is especially important. • This is the electric field anywhere away from a large sheet of charge. • Notice that the electric field doesn’t depend on distance, and always points perpendicular to the surface. • Classic problem: What is the electric field between two parallel plates of charge ±Q and area A? • Answer: Since you have two plates of opposite charge, the E fields add, and thus… • = =2 20 = 0 = → : → : − = − ⋅ = −V • These relations let you go from either E to V or vice-versa. If you know one, you can calculate the other. = −Δ = −0 Δ This equation can be used to: • If you’re given Δ, you can find the work done. • If a point charge of charge q0 goes through a potential difference of Δ, it tells you the work done on the charge. = 0 • This is the defining relation between potential energy (U) and electric potential (V). • Note: since q0 can be positive or negative, U and V do not necessarily have the same sign. • One more time: Electric potential (V) is not the same thing as electric potential energy (U) • But let’s rewrite it. = /0 Similar to: = . 0 = • Electric potential of a point charge q, a distance r away, assuming V=0 at infinity. • Potential goes up as you get closer to the point charge. Δ = ± • Rather important: This is the potential difference between two parallel conducting plates, otherwise known as a capacitor. • What is E for a capacitor again? = /0 = • Definition of capacitance • C=Charge Q/ Voltage drop = 0 • Special case of capacitance when you’re looking at a parallel plate capacitor. • Notice that the capacitance doesn’t depend on the charge on the plates. = 1 + 2 + ⋯ • Adding capacitors in PARALLEL. 1 1 1 = + +⋯ 1 2 • Adding capacitors in SERIES. = 40 − • Special case of capacitance when you’re looking at a two concentric spherical conducting shells. • The radius of the smaller shell is a, the radius of the larger shell is b. = 40 • The capacitance of a single spherical shell of radius R 2 1 2 1 = = = 2 2 2 • You use these equations to calculate the stored energy in a capacitor • Okay, but there’s 3 different equations, so which one is appropriate for my problem? – If they just ask you to calculate U, use the one that has variables you know. – If they ask you what happens to U if you double the charge, halve d, etc… • If the capacitors are stand-alone, use 2 . 2 1 2 • If the capacitors are connected to a voltage source, use 2 = 0 • This relates the permittivity of free space to the permittivity in a medium of dielectric constant . = C0 • Relates capacitance without a dielectric (C0) to capacitance with a dielectric. 1 2 = 2 • The energy density when you have an electric field E in a medium of permittivity . • For example, let’s say you have a cube (L=3) filled with water ( = 78).
