Lecture in Electric Potential

(Last Updated On: December 8, 2017)
Applied Physics Lecture: Electric Potential

Lesson Objectives – the students should be able to:

  • Write from memory the definitions of electric potential, and electric potential difference.
  • Distinguish between electric potential, electric potential energy, and electric potential difference.
  • Draw the electric field pattern and equipotential line pattern which exist between charged objects.
  • Determine the magnitude of the potential at a point a known distance from a point charge or an arrangement of point charges.
  • State the relationship between electric potential and electric field and determine the potential difference between two points a fixed distance apart in a region where the electric field is uniform.
  • Determine the kinetic energy in both joules and electron volts of a charged particle which is accelerated through a given potential difference.
  • Explain what is meant by an electric dipole and determine the magnitude of the electric dipole moment between two point charges.
  • Given the dimensions, distance between the plates, and the dielectric constant of the material between the plates, determine the magnitude of the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor.
  • Given the capacitance, the dielectric constant, and either the potential difference or the charge stored on the plates of a parallel plate capacitor, determine the energy and the energy density stored in the capacitor.
  • Understand the functions and operations of Cathode Ray Tube: TV and Computer Monitors, Oscilloscope
  • Know The Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
