Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 4 Media can be grouped in two classes: conductorsdielectrics (insulators, semiconductors, etc.) free chargesno free charges charges will move until the conductor is field free charges in the material are polarized by external fields everywhere (this assumes we are dealing with an electrostatic problem with electric flux density field strength polarization field

Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 10 Note: Isotropic implies that the,, and fields are in the same direction. Anisotropic implies that the,, and fields may have different directions. We limit the media to those that are linear, isotropic, and homogeneous. For such media, the polarization field is: Electric susceptibility

11
Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 11 Since It follows that Materials with large permittivity also have a large susceptibility!

22
Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 22 Application of Boundary Conditions Given that the x-y plane is a charge- free boundary separating two dielectric media with permittivities 1 and 2. If the electric field in medium 1 is Find The electric field in medium 2, and The angles 1 and 2.

23
Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 23 What are the angles between 1 and 2 between and, as well as between and. For any two media: With no charges (charge free) on the boundary plane x-y plane z

24
Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 24 It follows that: since the z-component of the field is the normal component of the field.

32
Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 32 Since the conductor is field-free And since, the magnitude of the surface charge densities is given by the product of permittivity and field strength.

Dr. Blanton - ENTC 3331 - Energy & Potential 39 Summary of Electrostatics The sources of the electrostatic field are time-independent charge distributions. That is, the charge distributions are static (derivative is zero). Electrostatics follows from the empirical facts of Coulomb’s law The principle of linear, vectorial superposition of forces and fields. Energy conservation.
