Lecture in Electric Charge and Electric Field

(Last Updated On: December 8, 2017)
Applied Physics Lecture: Electric Charge and Electric Field

Lesson Objectives – the students should be able to:

  • State from memory the magnitude and sign of the charge on an electron and proton and also state the mass of each particle.
  • Apply Coulomb’s law to determine the magnitude of the electrical force between point charges separated by a distance r and state whether the force will be one of attraction or repulsion.
  • State from memory the law of conservation of charge.
  • Distinguish between an insulator, a conductor, and a semi conductor and give examples of each.
  • Explain the concept of electric field and determine the resultant electric field at a point some distance from two or more point charges.
  • Determine the magnitude and direction of the electric force on a charged particle placed in an electric field.
  • Sketch the electric field pattern in the region between charged objects.
  • Use Gauss’s law to determine the magnitude of the electric field in problems where static electric charge is distributed on a surface which is simple and symmetrical.
  • Could understand Static Electricity; Electric Charge and Its Conservation
  • Solving Problems Involving Coulomb’s Law and Vectors
  • Learn Electric Forces in Molecular Biology: DNA Structure and Replication
  • Understand Photocopy Machines and Computer Printers Use Electrostatics
