  1. Chapter 17 Electric Forces and Fields

  2. 17.1 Electric Charge Objectives • Understand the basic properties of electric charge • Differentiate between conductors and insulators • Distinguish between charging by contact, charging by induction, and charging by polarization

  3. How / Why does electric charge happen?

  4. Electrostatics - Properties • Two kinds of charge: positive negative • Electric charge is conserved • Like charges repel, unlike charges attract • Charges travel between unlike materials

  5. Electrostatics – More Properties • The fundamental unit of electric charge is denoted by the small letter “e” • An electron has a charge of –e • A proton has a charge of +e • Quantized: Electric charges are always a multiple of e. (+/- 1e, +/- 2e, +/-3e etc.) • Value of e = 1.602 x 10-19 Coulombs and 1.0 C = 6.2x1018electrons

  6. Electrostatics • Charge was discovered by Robert Millikan (oil drop experiment)

  7. Electrostatics • Negatively charged drop suspended inside had no net force

  8. Electrostatics - Transfer • CONDUCTORS – electric charge moves freely • INSULATORS – electric charge does not move freely • Semiconductors • Superconductors

  9. Electrostatics – Methods of Charging • By contact • Two objects touching each other • Conductors or insulators • By induction • No contact required • Grounding source needed • Conductors only • By polarization • Realignment of charge on surface • Contact or no contact • Insulators only

  10. Charging by Contact

  11. Triboelectric Series • Rubbing two different materials together results in the transfer of electrons • The prefix “tribo” means “to rub” • The Triboelectric Series is a list that ranks materials according to their tendency to gain or lose electrons

  12. Electroscope

  13. Charging by Induction

  14. Charging by Polarization PhET Interactive, UC-Boulder

  15. Example of static electricity in nature?

  16. Electroscope • A device that can be used to detect and demonstrate the presence of a static charge

  17. 17.2 Electric Force Objectives • Calculate electric force using Coulomb’s Law • Compare electric force with gravitational force • Apply the superposition principle to find the resultant force on a charge and to find the position at which the net charge is zero.

  18. Coulomb’s Law: Electric Force Felectric = kC(q1q2) r2 kC = Coulomb constant = 8.99x109Nm2 C2 q1 = charge of charge 1 (C) q2 = charge of charge 2 (C) r = distance between charge 1 & charge 2 (m)

  19. Felectric is a vector quantity • Magnitude • Direction

  20. Comparison of forces Electric (Felectric) Gravitational (Fg) Felectric = kCq1q2 r2 Fg = G m1m2 r2 G = gravitational constant = 6.67x10-11 Nm2/kg2 kC = Coulomb constant = 8.99x109 Nm2/C2

  21. Resultant ForceThe sum of all individual vector forces What is the resultant (net) force C will feel? FAC = 0.067 N A is pushing C away FBC = 0.022 N B is pulling C toward it Fnet-C = FAC – FBC = 0.067 – 0.022 = 0.045 N

  22. Resultant Force – Another Example A charge of -2.00nC is located at the origin. Another charge of 5.00nC is located at a position x = 4.00m. Another charge of 6.00nC is located at a position y = -3.00m. What is the magnitude and direction of the net force on the 5.00nC charge? ANS: F3 = 7.16nC at an angle of 65.2o

  23. Charges in Equilibrium Example Bookwork #22, set up

  24. 17.3 Electric Field Objectives • Calculate electric field strength • Draw and interpret electric field lines • Identify the four properties associated with a conductor in electrostatic equilibrium

  25. Electric Field • Electric Field is the field that permeates the space around a charged object and in which another charged object experiences an electric force • Electric Field is a ratio of Force to Charge E = Felectric / q0 • The direction of E is defined as the direction of the electric force that would be exerted on a small positive test charge (q0)

  26. Electric Field Strength

  27. Electric Field A vector quantity with….. E = kCq N/C r2 MAGNITUDE determined by: The direction of the force that charge (q) would exert on a small positive test charge placed in it’s vicinity DIRECTION determined by:

  28. Electric Field Lines • Electric FieldLines are lines that represent both the magnitude and the direction of the electric field. • The number of lines shown is proportional to the electric field strength. As lines get closer together, the field strength increases.

  29. Electric Field Lines – Rules for Drawing • Lines begin on + charges (or at infinity) and terminate on – charges (or at infinity) • The number of lines drawn leaving a + or terminating on a – is proportional to the magnitude of the charge • No two field lines can cross one another.

  30. Electric Field Lines - Monopoles The electric field from an isolated positive charge The electric field from an isolated negative charge

  31. Electric Field Lines - Dipoles

  32. E-Field Lines: Point source vs Uniform source

  33. Electrostatic Equilibrium An isolated conductor with no net motion of charge is said to be in a state of…..

  34. Four Properties of Electrostatic Equilibrium • The electric field is zero inside a conductor 2. Any excess charge resides entirely on the surface of the conductor 3. The electric field just outside a charged conductor is perpendicular to the conductor’s surface 4. On an irregularly shaped conductor, charge tends to accumulate where the radius of curvature is smallest.

  38. Lab – Balloon Electrostatics • Sum the vectors in the x-direction • Sum the vectors in the y-direction • From the diagram, Felectric can be found • Felectric is equal and opposite Tx (tension) • Q can be found • Finally, the number of electrons can be found
