Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 5 Lecture 28 Slide 5 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Describing Motion and Interactions Position—where you are in space (L or meter) Velocity—how fast position is changing with time (LT -1 or m/s) Acceleration—how fast velocity is changing with time (LT -2 or m/s 2 ) Force— what is required to change to motion of a body (MLT -2 or kg-m/s 2 or N) Inertia (mass)— a measure of the force needed to change the motion of a body (M) Energy—the potential for an object to do work. (ML 2 T -2 or kg m 2 /s 2 or N-m or J) Work is equal to the force applied times the distance moved. W = F d Kinetic Energy is the energy associated with an object’s motion. KE=½ mv 2 Potential Energy is the energy associated with an objects position. Gravitational potential energy PE gravity =mgh Spring potential energy PE apring = -kx Momentum— the potential of an object to induce motion in another object (MLT -1 or kg-m/s) Angular Momentum and Rotational Energy— the equivalent constants of motion for rotation (MT -1 or kg/s) and (MLT -2 or kg m/s 2 or N) Pressure— force divided by the area over which the force is applied (ML -1 T -1 or kg/m-s or N/m 2 or Pa)

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 9 Lecture 28 Slide 9 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 What does lightning have in common...... with hair on a dry winter day?

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 10 Lecture 28 Slide 10 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Effects of Electric Charge Hair seems to have a mind of its own when combed on a dry winter day. What causes the hairs to repel one another? Why does a piece of plastic refuse to leave your hand after you peeled it off a package? Why do you get a slight shock after walking across carpet and touching a light switch?

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 11 Lecture 28 Slide 11 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 All these phenomena involve different materials rubbing against one another. –Electrostatic effects can be demonstrated by rubbing plastic or glass rods with different furs or fabrics. –Small wads of dry, paperlike material called pith balls are light enough to be strongly influenced by electrostatic forces. –When a plastic rod, vigorously rubbed with cat fur, is brought near the pith balls, at first the pith balls are attracted to the rod like bits of iron to a magnet. –After contacting the rod, the pith balls dance away from the rod. –They are now repelled by the rod and also by each other. Effects of Electric Charge

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 12 Lecture 28 Slide 12 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 A repulsive force must be acting between the two pith balls after they have been in contact with the rod. –Perhaps the balls have received something (call it electric charge) from the rod that is responsible for the force we observe. –This charge was somehow generated by rubbing the rod with the cat fur. –The force that is exerted by one stationary charge on another is called the electrostatic force. Effects of Electric Charge

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 13 Lecture 28 Slide 13 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Experiments with different materials indicate that there are two types of charge. An electroscope consists of two metallic-foil leaves suspended from a metal post inside a glass-walled container. –If the foil leaves are uncharged, they will hang straight down. –If a charged rod is brought in contact with the metal ball on top, the leaves immediately spread apart and stay apart, even if the rod is removed. –If an object of the same charge as the original rod is later brought near the metal ball, the leaves will spread farther apart. –An object with the opposite charge will make the leaves come closer together. –A larger charge produces a larger effect. Like charges repel each other, and unlike charges attract each other.

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 14 Lecture 28 Slide 14 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Benjamin Franklin introduced the names positive and negative for the two types of charge. He also proposed that a single fluid was being transferred from one object to another during charging. –A positive charge resulted from a surplus of the fluid, and a negative charge resulted from a shortage of the fluid. –Franklin arbitrarily proposed that the charge on a glass rod when rubbed with silk be called positive. Like charges repel each other, and unlike charges attract each other.

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 15 Lecture 28 Slide 15 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Franklin’s model comes surprisingly close to our modern view. When objects are rubbed together, electrons may be transferred from one object to the other. –Electrons are small, negatively charged particles present in all atoms and, therefore, in all materials. –A negatively charged object has a surplus of electrons, and a positively charged object has a shortage of electrons. –The atomic or chemical properties of materials dictate which way the electrons flow when objects are rubbed together. Like charges repel each other, and unlike charges attract each other.

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 16 Lecture 28 Slide 16 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Conductors and Insulators Different materials behave differently in the presence of electrostatic forces. –Charge can readily flow through conductors: metals, like copper, silver, iron, gold; our bodies –Materials that do not ordinarily permit charge to flow are insulators: plastic; glass; ceramics; other nonmetallic materials –Charge flows much more readily through several miles of copper wire than through the few inches of insulating ceramic material. –Semiconductors are intermediate between a good conductor and a good insulator. Their importance to modern technology is enormous.

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 17 Lecture 28 Slide 17 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Can you charge an object without actually touching it with another charged object? Charging by induction involves the conducting property of metals: –Charge a plastic rod with cat fur and bring the rod near a metal ball mounted on an insulating post. –The electrons in the metal ball are repelled by the negative rod. –There is a negative charge buildup on the side opposite the rod, and a positive charge on the near side.

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 18 Lecture 28 Slide 18 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Can you charge an object without actually touching it with another charged object? To charge the ball by induction, now touch the ball with your finger on the side opposite the rod. –The negative charge flows from the ball to your body, since it is still repelled by the negative rod. –If you now remove your finger and then the rod, a net positive charge is left on the ball.

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 19 Lecture 28 Slide 19 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Charging by induction illustrates the mobility of charges on a conducting object such as the metal ball. –The process will not work with a glass ball. –Charging by induction is an important process in machines used for generating electrostatic charges, and in many other practical devices. –It also explains some of the phenomena associated with lightning storms. Charging By Induction

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 20 Lecture 28 Slide 20 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Why are insulators attracted to charged objects? Recall that the pith balls were attracted to the charged rod before they were charged themselves. –Electrons are not free to move in the insulating material of the pith balls. –However, within each atom or molecule, charges can move. –Each atom becomes an electric dipole: the center of the negative charge is slightly displaced from the center of the positive charge. –The material is polarized. Charging By Induction

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 21 Lecture 28 Slide 21 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Since the negatively charged surface is closer to the rod than the positively charged surface, it experiences a stronger electrostatic force. –The overall effect is that the pith ball is attracted to the charged rod, even though the net (total) charge on the pith ball is zero. –After the ball comes in contact with the charged rod, some of the charge on the rod is transferred to the pith ball. –The pith ball is then positively charged like the rod, and so is repelled by the rod. Charging By Induction

Charge Introduction Section 0 Lecture 1 Slide 22 Lecture 28 Slide 22 INTRODUCTION TO Modern Physics PHYX 2710 Fall 2004 Physics of Technology—PHYS 1800 Spring 2009 Polarization explains why small bits of paper or styrofoam are attracted to a charged object such as a sweater rubbed against some other material. Electrostatic precipitators used to remove particles from smoke in industrial smoke stacks use this property. –Polarized particles are attracted to charged plates in the precipitator, removing them from the emitted gases.
