Today 3/12  Plates if charge  E-Field  Potential  HW:“Plate Potential” Due Friday, 3/14

 (+) How big is E?  (-) E net = 0

 0 = Q/A Charged conducting plate What’s wrong with this picture? A = Area of one side

 L =  0 /2 Charged conducting plate Free charge always goes to surface of conductor.  R =  0 /2

 L =  0 /2 Charged conducting plate  R =  0 /2 What is the electric field inside the conductor? E L =  L /2  0 =  0 /4  0

 L =  0 /2 Charged conducting plate  R =  0 /2 What is the electric field inside the conductor? E R =  R /2  0 =  0 /4  0

 L =  0 /2 Charged conducting plate  R =  0 /2 What is the electric field inside the conductor? The electric field is zero everywhere inside the conductor. Always, any conductor, no exceptions.

q=+1C What happens if I let it go?

KE = 0KE = 100 J A B Assume the particle gains 100 joules of kinetic energy as it moves from A to B. q=+1C

A B Now I stop it at B. How much work must I do to move it back to A? +100 J How does the potential energy change in moving from B to A? +100 J  PE BA = +100 J  PE AB = -100 J q=+1C

A B  PE BA = +200 J  PE AB = -200 J What if q=+2C? How much work must I do to move it back to A? How does the potential energy change in moving from B to A? +200 J q=+2C

A B Now we are back to our original definition.  PE BA = (+100 J/C)x(q)  V BA tells us how much PE changes when +1C is moved from B to A.  PE BA =  V BA q  V BA = +100 J/C q=+1C

A B What if q = -1C? First I must turn my hand around. q= -1C

A B What if q= -1C? How much work must I do to move it back to A? -100 J How does the potential energy change in moving from B to A? -100 J  PE BA = (+100 J/C)x(q)  PE BA = (+100 J/C)x(-1)  V BA does not depend on the sign of the point charge but  PE BA does!!!!!  PE BA =  V BA q q= -1C
