Example: What electric field is needed to keep an electron suspended in the air against gravity?
Direction? Strength? 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?

§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. Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 16, Question 15. • 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.

§17.1 Electric Potential Energy
Electric potential energy (PEe) is: energy stored in the electric field, work (W=F.d) done to put charges in place. Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 17, Question 13. +Q +Q h m +q -q

Example: Two point charges, Q = +6. 0 mC and q = +5
Example: Two point charges, Q = +6.0 mC and q = +5.0 mC are separated by 15.0 m. What is their potential energy? If Q is fixed and q is free to move, what will q do? How does q’s motion affect the potential energy? Explain in terms of conservation of energy.

Q) What if there are four charges?
Q) What is the potential energy of three point charges arranged as a right triangle? This slide is animated to walk through the process of bringing in the charges (for the configuration on the left) one at a time and accounting for the change in potential energy at each step. The second arrangement is brought in as a single entity. The purpose of the ending question is to make the students look hard at the two arrangements and conclude that they are different and because they are different their potential energies will differ. Q) What if there are four charges? (scalar sum)

§17.2 Electric Potential Electric potential is the electric potential energy per unit charge: scalar 1 V = 1 J/C.

§17.4 Moving Charges When only electric forces act on a charge, its total mechanical energy, E, will be conserved: Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 17, Questions 5 and 15.

Parallel plate capacitor
§17.5 Capacitors A capacitor stores electric potential energy by storing separated (+) and (–) charges. Work must be done to separate the charges. + Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 17, Questions 6, 8, and 9. Parallel plate capacitor Why?

What is the capacitance for a parallel plate capacitor?
Note: C is a property of the device, it depends on A & d, “capacity” to hold charge.

Example (PP 17. 56): A parallel plate capacitor has a capacitance of 1
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. What is the potential difference between the plates? If the plate separation is 0.3 mm, what is the area? 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?

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) Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 17, Question 7.

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?!

Could incorporate personal response system questions from the College Physics by G/R/R 2E ARIS site (www.mhhe.com/grr), Instructor Resources: CPS by eInstruction, Chapter 17, Questions 10 and 20. A capacitor will store energy equivalent to the amount of work that it takes to separate the charges.

} The energy stored in the electric field between the plates is:
(Sub in Q = CV) Summary: • C is set by the device (A, d, k) • V is set by the strength of the battery (“pump”) • Q and U depend on C and V.

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?
