Chapter 16

2
**Review What is potential energy?**

Energy at rest or energy due to position

3
**What is a conservative force?**

A conservative force is a force that does work in such a way that the work done depends only upon the initial and final positions.

4
**Frictional force is dissipative.**

The Coulomb force is conservative.

5
**What is meant by the conservation of energy?**

Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed.

6
**Gravitational force is conservative.**

Gravitational potential energy depends upon mass, gravity, and position.

7
**Introduction New concepts Electric potential energy Electric potential**

Voltage between two points Electric potential difference Capacitance

8
**Work Done on a Charge Electrostatic force is conservative**

Work may be done by a conservative force

9
**The equation for work done on a charge:**

Since F = qE W = (F)d = (qE)d

10
**Electric Potential Electric potential (V) is a scalar quantity**

It is defined as the energy per unit charge (J/C) at a given point The unit for electric potential is the volt (1 volt = 1 Joule/Coulomb)

11
Potential Difference Definition of the potential difference (DV) between points A and B DV = VB - VA = DPE/q = -E.d The units are Volts or Joules /Coulomb

12
**Useful relationships:**

1 V = 1 J/C 1 N/C = 1 V/m

13
Electrical PE and KE A positive charge gains electrical PE when it moves against the field. A positive charge gains KE when it moves in the same direction as the field. 166, 16.2

14
**A negative charge gains KE when it moves against the field.**

A negative charge gains electrical PE when it moves in the same direction as the field. A negative charge gains KE when it moves against the field. 167

15
**Potential Difference And Electric Potential**

A 12-volt automobile battery Maintains a potential difference across its terminals The positive terminal is at a higher potential. (+ 12 volts) The negative terminal is at a lower potential (0 volts) and is connected to the car frame. Charge moves around the circuit. 16.3

16
Zero Potential A point of zero potential is usually defined by grounding some point in the circuit.

17
**A point at infinity may be considered to be at zero potential in relation to a positive charge.**

18
**Electric Potential at a Point**

The electric potential, at a particular location, created by a point charge can be found by using: V = ke(q/r)

19
Electric Potential The electric potential depends upon only two things:

20
**The electric potential depends upon only two things:**

Charge Location

21
**The electric potential exists at every point surrounding a given charge.**

A second charge is not needed.

22
**Electric potential is a scalar quantity.**

If there are two or more charges, the potentials add algebraically at a given point. no vectors to worry about

23
Electric PE Electric potential energy is the energy that a charge has due to its position in the electric field produced by another charge. It is measured in Joules. 133

24
**The electric potential (PE) energy of a pair of charges can be found by using:**

PE = q2V1 = q2(keq1/r) PE = ke (q1q2/r) 16.7

25
The electric potential energy is positive if the charges are identical and negative if they are different.

26
Equipotentials No work is required to move a charge between two points that are at the same potential. W = -q(VB – VA)

27
All points on the surface of a charged conductor which is in electrostatic equilibrium are at the same potential.

28
**The electric potential is constant everywhere on the surface of a charged conductor in equilibrium.**

29
The electric potential is constant everywhere inside a conductor and equal to its value at the surface.

30
The Electron-Volt The electron-volt is the energy of an electron after it has been accelerated across a potential difference of 1 volt. It is a very small unit of energy. 1 eV = 1.6 x J

31
**Equipotential Surfaces**

What is an equipotential surface? An equipotential surface is one where all points are at the same potential. 169

32
**No work is required to move a charge at a constant speed along an equipotential surface.**

134

33
**The electric field at every point of an equipotential surface is perpendicular to the surface.**

**Capacitors What is a capacitor?**

A capacitor is made up of two parallel metal plates with a surface area (A) separated by a dielectric with thickness (d) 171

40
**How it works: 68 Each plate is connected to one side of a battery**

Charge flows until the plates have the same potential difference as the battery One is positive while the other is negative (+ Q and –Q) 68

41
**The Definition Of Capacitance**

What is capacitance? Capacitance is the ratio of the magnitude of the charge on either conducting surface to the potential difference between the two conducting surfaces. C = Q/DV Therefore: Q = DV.C

42
**What is the unit of capacitance?**

Farad (F) Named after Michael Faraday 1 farad = 1 Coulomb/volt Microfarads (mF) and picofarads (pF) are more commonly used
