The Electric Field
• Both gravitational and electric forces act over
a distance without touching objects  What
kind of forces are these?
– Field forces
• Michael Faraday developed an idea of field.
– Faraday argued that the electric field extends
outward from every charge and permeates
through all of space.
• Field by a charge or a group of charges can
be inspected by placing a small test charge in
the vicinity and measuring the force on it.

Direction of the Electric Field
• If there are more than one charge, the individual field due to
each charge is added vectorially to obtain the total field at
any point.
ETot  E1  E2  E3  E4  ....
• This superposition principle of electric field has been verified
by experiments.
• For a given electric field E at a given point in space, we can
calculate the force F on any charge q, F=qE.
– What happens to the direction of the force and the field depending
on the sign of the charge q?
– The two are in the same directions if q>0
– The two are in opposite directions if q<0

Field Lines
• The electric field is a vector quantity. Thus, its magnitude can be
expressed in the length of the vector and the arrowhead pointing to
the direction.
• Since the field permeates through the entire space, drawing vector
arrows is not an ideal way of expressing the field.
• Electric field lines are drawn to indicate the direction of the force
due to the given field on a positive test charge.
– Number of lines crossing unit area perpendicular to E is proportional to the
magnitude of the electric field.
– The closer the lines are together, the stronger the electric field in that region.
– Start on positive charges and end on negative charges.

Electric Fields and Conductors
• The electric field inside a conductor is ZERO in the static
situation. (If the charge is at rest.) Why?
– If there were an electric field within the conductor, there would be a
force on free electrons inside of it.
– The electrons will move until they reached positions where the
electric field becomes zero.
– Electric field, however, can exist inside a non-conductor.
• Consequences of the above
– Any net charge on a conductor distributes
itself on the surface.
– Although no field exists inside a conductor,
the fields can exist outside the conductor
due to induced charges on either surface
– The electric field is always perpendicular to
the surface outside of the conductor.

Example 16-10
• Shielding, and safety in a storm. A hollow metal
box is placed between two parallel charged plates.
What is the field like in the box?
• If the metal box were solid
– The free electrons in the box would redistribute themselves
along the surface so that the field lines would not penetrate
into the metal.
• The free electrons do the same in hollow metal boxes
just as well as it did in a solid metal box.
• Thus a conducting box is an effective device for
shielding.  Faraday cage
• So what do you think will happen if you were inside a
car when the car was struck by a lightening?

Motion of a Charged Particle in an Electric Field
• If an object with an electric charge +q is at a point in
space where electric field is E, the force exerting on
the object is F  qE.
• What do you think will happen
to the charge?
– Let’s think about the cases like
these on the right.
– The object will move along the
field line…Which way?
– The charge gets accelerated.

Example
• Electron accelerated by electric field. An electron (mass m =
9.1x10-31kg) is accelerated in the uniform field E (E=2.0x104N/C)
between two parallel charged plates. The separation of the
plates is 1.5cm. The electron is accelerated from rest near the
negative plate and passes through a tiny hole in the positive
plate. (a) With what speed does it leave the hole? (b) Show that
the gravitational force can be ignored. Assume the hole is so
small that it does not affect the uniform field between the plates.
The magnitude of the force on the electron is F=qE and is
directed to the right. The equation to solve this problem is
F  qE  ma

The magnitude of the electron’s acceleration is a 

Between the plates the field E is uniform, thus the electron undergoes a

v2  v02  2ax v  2ax  2  3.5 1015 1.5 102  1.0 107 m s
Since there is no electric field outside the conductor, the electron continues
moving with this speed after passing through the hole.
• (b) Show that the gravitational force can be ignored. Assume the hole is
so small that it does not affect the uniform field between the plates.
The magnitude of the electric force on the electron is


Fe  qE  eE  1.6  1019 C 2.0  104 N / C  3.2  1015 N
The magnitude of the gravitational force on the electron is


FG  mg  9.8 m s 2  9.1 1031 kg  8.9  1030 N
Thus the gravitational force on the electron is negligible compared to the
electromagnetic force.

Gauss’ Law
• Gauss’ law states the relationship between electric
charge and electric field.
– More general and elegant form of Coulomb’s law.
• The electric field by the distribution of charges can be
obtained using Coulomb’s law by summing (or
integrating) over the charge distributions.
• Gauss’ law, however, gives an additional insight into
the nature of electrostatic field and a more general
relationship between the charge and the field

Electric Flux
• Let’s imagine a surface of area A through which a uniform
electric field E passes
• The electric flux is defined as
–  E=EA, if the field is perpendicular to the surface
–  E=EAcosθ, if the field makes an angle θ to the surface
• So the electric flux is defined as  E  E  A.
• How would you define the electric flux in words?
– Total number of field lines passing through the unit area
perpendicular to the field. N E  EA   E

Example of Flux
• Electric flux. (a) Calculate the electric
flux through the rectangle in the figure
(a). The rectangle is 10cm by 20cm
and the electric field is uniform with
magnitude 200N/C. (b) What is the flux
in figure if the angle is 30 degrees?
The electric flux is
 E  E  A  EA cos

Electric Potential Energy
• Concept of energy is very useful solving mechanical problems
• Conservation of energy makes solving complex problems easier.
• When can the potential energy be defined?
– Only for a conservative force.
– The work done by a conservative force is independent of the path. What
does it only depend on??
• The difference between the initial and final positions
– Can you give me an example of a conservative force?
• Gravitational force, Spring force
• Is the electrostatic force between two charges a conservative
force?
– Yes. Why?
– The dependence of the force to the distance is identical to that of the
gravitational force.
• The only thing matters is the direct linear distance between the object not the
path.

Electric Potential Energy
• What does this mean in terms of energies?
– The electric force is a conservative force.
– Thus, the mechanical energy (K+U) is conserved
under this force.
– A charged object has only the electric potential
energy at the positive plate.
– The electric potential energy decreases and turns
into kinetic energy of the charge object as the
electric force works on the charged objects and the
charged object gains speed.
• Point of greatest potential energy for
– Positively charged object
– Negatively charged object

Electric Potential
• How is the electric field defined?
– Electric force per unit charge: F/q
• We can define electric potential (potential) as
– The electric potential energy per unit charge
– This is like the voltage of a battery…
• Electric potential is written with the symbol V
– If a positive test charge q has potential energy Ua at
a point a, the electric potential of the charge at that
point is
Ua

Electric Potential
• Since only the difference in potential energy is meaningful,
only the potential difference between two points is
measurable
• What happens when the electric force does “positive work”?
– The charge gains kinetic energy
– Electric potential energy of the charge decreases
• Thus the difference in potential energy is the same as the
negative of the work, Wba, done on the charge by the electric
field to move the charge from point a to b.
• The potential difference Vba is
U b  U a Wba
Vba  Vb  Va 

A Few Things about Electric Potential
• What does the electric potential depend on?
– Other charges that creates the field
– What about the test charge?
• No, the electric potential is independent of the test charge
• Test charge gains potential energy by existing in the potential created by other
charges
• Which plate is at a higher potential?
– Positive plate. Why?
• Since positive charge has the greatest potential energy on it.
– What happens to the positive charge if it is let go?
• It moves from higher potential to lower potential
– How about a negative charge?
• Its potential energy is higher on the negative plate. Thus, it moves from negative
plate to positive. Potential difference is the same.
Zero point of electric potential
unit of the electric potential is Volt (V).
can be chosen arbitrarily.
• The
• From the definition, 1V = 1J/C.

Often the ground, a conductor
21
connected to Earth, is zero.
Example 17 – 1
A negative charge: Suppose a negative charge, such
as an electron, is placed at point b in the figure. If the
electron is free to move, will its electric potential energy
increase or decrease? How will the electric potential
change?
• An electron placed at point b will move toward the positive plate
since it was released at its highest potential energy point.
• It will gain kinetic energy as it moves toward left, decreasing its
potential energy.
• The electron, however, moves from the point b at a lower
potential to point a at a higher potential. ΔV=Va-Vb>0.
• This is because the potential is generated by the charges on the
plates not by the electron.

22
Electric Potential and Potential Energy
• What is the definition of the electric potential?
– The potential energy difference per unit charge
• OK, then, how would you express the potential energy that a
charge q would obtain when it is moved between point a and
b with the potential difference Vba?
U b  U a  q Vb  Va   qVba
– In other words, if an object with charge q moves through a
potential difference Vba, its potential energy changes by qVba.
• So based on this, how differently would you describe the
electric potential in words?
– A measure of how much energy an electric charge can acquire in a
given situation
– A measure of how much work a given charge can do.

Electric Potential and Potential Energy
• The electric potential difference gives potential energy or
possibility to do work depending on the charge of the object.
• So what is happening in batteries or generators?
– They maintain a potential difference.
– The actual amount of energy used or transformed depends on how
much charge flows.
– How much is the potential difference maintained by a car’s
battery?
• 12Volts
– If for a given period, 5C charge flows through the headlight lamp,

Electric force does negative work. In other words, the external force must work
+1.08J to bring the charge 3.00mC from infinity to 0.500m to the charge 20.0mC.

Electric Potential by Charge Distributions
• Let’s consider that there are n individual point
charges in a given space and V=0 at r=infinity.
• Then the potential due to the charge Qi at a point a,
Qi 1
distance ria from Qi is
Via 
4 0 ria
• Thus the total potential Va by all n point charges is

• Potential due to a ring of charge: A thin
circular ring of radius R carries a uniformly
distributed charge Q. Determine the electric
potential at a point P on the axis of the ring a
distance x from its center.
• Each point on the ring is at the same distance from the point P.
What is the distance?
r  R2  x2
• So the potential at P is
