5 Example: What electric field is needed to keep an electron suspended in the air against gravity? (a) Direction? (b) Strength? (c) Would a proton require the same field? Example (PP 16.48): An electron is placed in a uniform electric field of strength 232 N/C. If the electron is at rest at the origin of a coordinate system at t = 0 and the electric field is in the positive direction, what are the x- and y-coords of the electron at t = 2.3 ns? The velocity?
6 §16.6 Conductors in Electrostatic Equilibrium Conductors are easily polarized: free electrons move around freely inside the material. Any charges placed on a conductor will arrange themselves in a stable, unmoving distribution: electrostatic equilibrium. For a conductor in electrostatic equilibrium: 1) The E-field inside it is zero (no field lines) 2) Any net charge must reside on the surface 3) Just outside the surface, E is perpendicular to the surface 4) Any excess charge will accumulate where the surface is highly curved (i.e. a sharp point): E is strongest there.

9 §17.1 Electric Potential Energy Electric potential energy (PE e ) is: energy stored in the electric field, work (W=F. d) done to put charges in place. +q+q m h +Q+Q +Q+Q -q-q
Example: Two point charges, Q = +6.0 C and q = +5.0 C are separated by 15.0 m. (a) What is their potential energy? (b) If Q is fixed and q is free to move, what will q do? (c) How does q’s motion affect the potential energy? Explain in terms of conservation of energy. 10
11 Q) What is the potential energy of three point charges arranged as a right triangle? Q) What if there are four charges? (scalar sum)
12 §17.2 Electric Potential Electric potential is the electric potential energy per unit charge: scalar 1 V = 1 J/C. For a point charge Q: When a charge q moves through a potential difference of V, its potential energy change is PE e = q V.
13 Q b a c e d g f Example: A charge Q = +1 nC is placed somewhere in space far from other charges. Take r a = r b = r c = r d = 1.0 m and r e = r f = r g = 2.0 m. (a) Compare the potential at points d and g. (b) Compare the potential at points a and b.
14 Q b a c e d g f Example: A charge Q = +1 nC is placed somewhere in space far from other charges. Take r a = r b = r c = r d = 1.0 m and r e = r f = r g = 2.0 m. (c) Place a charge of nC at point e. What will the change in potential ( V) be if this charge is moved to point a? (d) What is the change in potential energy ( PE) of the nC charge ?

23 §17.4 Moving Charges When only electric forces act on a charge, its total mechanical energy, E, will be conserved:
24 Example (PP 17.40): Point P is at a potential of kV and point S is at a potential of kV. The space between these points is evacuated. When a charge of +2e moves from P to S, by how much does its kinetic energy change? (b) If the particle has a mass of 2.0x10 -9 kg and starts from rest at P, what is its speed at S?
25 Example (text problem 17.41): An electron is accelerated from rest through a potential difference. If the electron reaches a speed of 7.26 10 6 m/s, what is the potential difference?

27 §17.5 Capacitors A capacitor stores electric potential energy by storing separated (+) and (–) charges. Work must be done to separate the charges. Parallel plate capacitor – ––– – – – Why?
30 For a parallel plate capacitor: – ––– – – – VV Or Q = C V where the proportionality constant C = capacitance [ Farad = C/V ]
31 Note: C is a property of the device, it depends on A & d, “capacity” to hold charge. What is the capacitance for a parallel plate capacitor?
32 Example (PP 17.56): A parallel plate capacitor has a capacitance of 1.20 nF. There is a charge of magnitude C on each plate. (a)What is the potential difference between the plates? (b)If the plate separation is 0.3 mm, what is the area? (c)If the plate separation is doubled while the charge is kept constant, what will happen to the potential difference, and to the potential energy stored in the capacitor?
33 §17.6 Dielectrics I. Air-filled capacitor: Increase Q increase E Atoms in air b/w plates gets polarized: Eventually electrons pulled off (ionized), Charge arcs across gap = “breakdown” Need a better insulator! dielectric strength (kV/mm) – ––– – – –
34 II. Add a dielectric w/ dielectric constant Atoms polarize Charge separation at ends Reduces E inside dielectric Can add more Q to plates Higher C = Q/ V – ––– – – –
36 Example (PP 17.71): A capacitor can be made from two sheets of aluminum foil separated by a sheet of waxed paper. If the sheets of aluminum are 0.3 m by 0.4 m and the waxed paper, of slightly larger dimensions, is of thickness mm and has = 2.5, (a) what is the capacitance of this capacitor? (b) How much charge can it hold before breakdown? (c) How much energy is stored at this point? McGuiver?!
37 §17.7 Energy Stored in a Capacitor A capacitor will store energy equivalent to the amount of work that it takes to separate the charges.
38 (Sub in Q = C V) The energy stored in the electric field between the plates is: } Summary: C is set by the device (A, d, ) V is set by the strength of the battery (“pump”) Q and U depend on C and V.
39 Example (PP 17.79): A parallel plate capacitor is composed of two square plates, 10.0 cm on a side, separated by an air gap of 0.75 mm. (a) What is the charge on this capacitor when the potential difference is 150 volts? (b) What energy is stored in this capacitor?
