Phys 133 Charge Density Charge Q is spread uniformly on a rectangle of sides a and b. a) What is the surface charge density? b) The original rectangle, #1, is then broken into two smaller rectangles, #2 and #3. Compare the surface charge densities,  1,  2,  3. and the charges Q 1, Q 2, Q 3.

Phys 133 Charge Density ans Charge Q is spread uniformly on a rectangle of sides a and b. a) What is the surface charge density? b) The original rectangle, #1, is then broken into two smaller rectangles, #2 and #3. Compare the surface charge densities,  1,  2,  3. Charge is uniformly spread over rectangle. Piece #2 has a 1/3 the area, so 1/3 the charge.
