Equipotential surfaces and E fields
Equipotential = constant voltage
Conductors are equipotentials, in electrostatics
Potential difference  Electric field
dV/dx = -E or, equivalently, V    E  dr

• charges make scalar
potential differences
• E can be found from V
• Electric forces move
• Electric fields store

Ch.26: Currents and Resistance
Current = rate of flow of charge
I = dq/dt
Units: amps = coulombs/sec
Current density: J = current/area = n e v
Ch.26 Q1, 2, P.1, 8
Water flow:
Electricity flow:

Ch.26: Q1, 2, P.1, 8
Resistance = resistivity * area/length
R =  * A/L
Which conductor has the greatest resistivity?
Ch.26: Q3
Ohm’s law
In many substances, for a given resistance R,
the stronger the driving voltage, the greater
the current that flows:
Voltage = current * resistance
Ch.26 Q5, P.17
Power in electric circuits
Power = rate of energy xfr = voltage*current
units: Watts = volts * amps
Recall that work = qV. Units: J = CV
Solve for V(J,C) =
Then [volts]*[amps] = ____*C/s = ______
If V=IR, find P(I,R) =

d/dx = -E = electric field
Emf  and electric field E
d/dx = -E = electric field
Using the fundamental theorem of calculus,
we can derive another of Maxwell’s eqns:

Solar applications
Storms from the Sun:
p.13: If a CME travels at 1 million miles per hour, how
long does it take to reach Earth?
p.16: The 2 May 1994 event dumped 4600 GW-hr of
electricity into Earth’s upper atmosphere. How much
energy is that in Joules?
p.16: If the Earth’s mean magnetic field is B0=0.5 Gauss,
and one Tesla=104 Gauss, by what percent does 2000
nanoTesla change Earth’s field?
p.54: For the CME of 1 Sept 1859: calculate its speed v,
if it took 18 hours to reach Earth.
