2 In the peceding chpte we showed how to clculte the electic field geneted by given chge distibution. In this chpte, we descibe Guss s lw nd n ltentive pocedue fo clculting electic fields. The lw is bsed on the fct tht the fundmentl electosttic foce between point chges exhibits n invese-sue behvio. Although conseuence of Coulomb s lw, Guss s lw is moe convenient fo clculting the electic fields of highly symmetic chge distibutions nd mkes possible useful ulittive esoning when deling with complicted poblems. Ae = A 24.1 lectic Flux The concept of electic field lines ws descibed ulittively in Chpte 23. We now tet electic field lines in moe untittive wy. Conside n electic field tht is unifom in both mgnitude nd diection, s shown in Figue The field lines penette ectngul sufce of e A, whose plne is oiented pependicul to the field. Recll fom Section 23.6 tht the numbe of lines pe unit e (in othe wods, the line density) is popotionl to the mgnitude of the electic field. Theefoe, the totl numbe of lines penetting the sufce is popotionl to the poduct A. This poduct of the mgnitude of the electic field nd sufce e A pependicul to the field is clled the electic flux (uppecse Geek phi): Figue 24.1 Field lines epesenting unifom electic field penetting plne of e A pependicul to the field.

Solution The mgnitude of the electic field 1.00 m fom this chge is found using ution 23.9: k e 2 ( Nm 2 /C 2 ) C (1.00 m) N/C The field points dilly outwd nd is theefoe eveywhee pependicul to the sufce of the sphee.

If the sufce unde considetion is not pependicul to the field, the flux though it must be less thn tht given by ution We cn undestnd this by consideing Figue 24.2, whee the noml to the sufce of e A is t n ngle to the unifom electic field. Note tht the numbe of lines tht coss this e A is eul to the numbe tht coss the e A, which is pojection of e A onto plne oiented pependicul to the field. Fom Figue 24.2 we see tht the two es e elted by A A cos. Becuse the flux though A euls the flux though A, we conclude tht the flux though A is (24.2) Fom this esult, we see tht the flux though sufce of fixed e A hs mximum vlue A when the sufce is pependicul to the field (when the noml to the sufce is pllel to the field, tht is, 0 in Figue 24.2); the flux is zeo when the sufce is pllel to the field (when the noml to the sufce is pependicul to the field, tht is, 90 ).

The vition in the electic field ove one element cn be neglected if the element is sufficiently smll. It is convenient to define vecto A i whose mgnitude epesents the e of the ith element of the sufce nd whose diection is defined to be pependicul to the sufce element, s shown in Figue The electic field i t the loction of this element mkes n ngle i with the vecto A i.

Chge 4 does not contibute to the flux though ny sufce becuse it is outside ll sufces.

Note fom ution 24.5 tht the net flux though the spheicl sufce is popotionl to the chge inside. The flux is independent of the dius becuse the e of the spheicl sufce is popotionl to 2, whees the electic field is popotionl to 1/ 2. Thus, in the poduct of e nd electic field, the dependence on cncels. Now conside sevel closed sufces suounding chge, s shown in Figue Sufce S 1 is spheicl, but sufces S 2 nd S 3 e not. Fom ution 24.5, the flux tht psses though S 1 hs the vlue / 0. As we discussed in the peceding section, flux is popotionl to the numbe of electic field lines pssing though sufce. The constuction shown in Figue 24.7 shows tht the numbe of lines though S 1 is eul to the numbe of lines though the nonspheicl sufces S 2 nd S 3. Theefoe, we conclude tht the net flux though ny closed sufce suounding point chge is given by / 0 nd is independent of the shpe of tht sufce.

If we pply this esult to xmple 24.2, we cn esily see tht the net flux though the cube is zeo becuse thee is no chge inside the cube. Let us extend these guments to two genelized cses: (1) tht of mny point chges nd (2) tht of continuous distibution of chge.

A foml poof of Guss s lw is pesented in Section When using ution 24.6, you should note tht lthough the chge in is the net chge inside the gussin sufce, epesents the totl electic field, which includes contibutions fom chges both inside nd outside the sufce. In pinciple, Guss s lw cn be solved fo to detemine the electic field due to system of chges o continuous distibution of chge. In pctice, howeve, this type of solution is pplicble only in limited numbe of highly symmetic situtions. In the next section we use Guss s lw to evlute the electic field fo chge distibutions tht hve spheicl, cylindicl, o pln symmety.

In choosing the sufce, we should lwys tke dvntge of the symmety of the chge distibution so tht we cn emove fom the integl nd solve fo it.

Becuse the spce ound the single chge hs spheicl symmety, we ctegoize this poblem s one in which thee is enough symmety to pply Guss s lw. To nlyze ny Guss s lw poblem, we conside the detils of the electic field nd choose gussin sufce tht stisfies some o ll of the conditions tht we hve listed bove. We choose spheicl gussin sufce of dius centeed on the point chge, s shown in Figue The electic field due to positive point chge is diected dilly outwd by Gussin sufce Figue (xmple 24.4) The point chge is t the cente of the spheicl gussin sufce, nd is pllel to d A t evey point on the sufce. da symmety nd is theefoe noml to the sufce t evey point.

Answe If the line chge in this exmple wee of finite length, the esult fo would not be tht given by ution A finite line chge does not possess sufficient symmety fo us to mke use of Guss s lw. This is becuse the mgnitude of the electic field is no longe constnt ove the sufce of the gussin cylinde the field ne the ends of the line would be diffeent fom tht f fom the ends. Thus, condition (1) would not be stisfied in this sitution. Futhemoe, is not pependicul to the cylindicl sufce t ll points the field vectos ne the ends would hve component pllel to the line. Thus, condition (2) would not be stisfied. Fo points close to finite line chge nd f fom the ends, ution 24.7 gives good ppoximtion of the vlue of the field. It is left fo you to show (see Poblem 29) tht the electic field inside unifomly chged od of finite dius nd infinite length is popotionl to.

Solution By symmety, must be pependicul to the plne nd must hve the sme mgnitude t ll points euidistnt fom the plne. The fct tht the diection of is wy fom positive chges indictes tht the diection of on one side of the plne must be opposite its diection on the othe side, s shown in Figue A gussin sufce tht eflects the symmety is smll cylinde whose xis is pependicul to the plne nd whose ends Gussin sufce Figue (xmple 24.8) A cylindicl gussin sufce penetting n infinite plne of chge.

Becuse is pllel to the cuved sufce nd, theefoe, pependicul to da eveywhee on the sufce condition (3) is stisfied nd thee is no contibution to the sufce integl fom this sufce. Fo the flt ends of the cylinde, conditions (1) nd (2) e stisfied. The flux though ech end of the cylinde is A; hence, the totl flux though the entie gussin sufce is just tht though the ends, 2A. Noting tht the totl chge inside the sufce is in A, we use Guss s lw nd find tht the totl flux though the gussin sufce is leding to 2 A in (24.8) Becuse the distnce fom ech flt end of the cylinde to the plne does not ppe in ution 24.8, we conclude tht /2 0 t ny distnce fom the plne.

This is pcticl wy to chieve unifom electic fields, such s those needed in the CRT tube discussed in Section Conceptul xmple 24.9 Don t Use Guss s Lw Hee! xplin why Guss s lw cnnot be used to clculte the electic field ne n electic dipole, chged disk, o tingle with point chge t ech cone. Solution The chge distibutions of ll these configutions do not hve sufficient symmety to mke the use of Guss s lw pcticl. We cnnot find closed sufce suounding ny of these distibutions tht stisfies one o moe of conditions (1) though (4) listed t the beginning of this section Conductos in lectosttic uilibium As we lened in Section 23.2, good electicl conducto contins chges (electons) tht e not bound to ny tom nd theefoe e fee to move bout within the mteil. When thee is no net motion of chge within conducto, the conducto is in electosttic euilibium. A conducto in electosttic euilibium hs the following popeties: Popeties of conducto in electosttic euilibium Figue A conducting slb in n extenl electic field. The chges induced on the two sufces of the slb poduce n electic field tht opposes the extenl field, giving esultnt field of zeo inside the slb. 1. The electic field is zeo eveywhee inside the conducto. 2. If n isolted conducto cies chge, the chge esides on its sufce. 3. The electic field just outside chged conducto is pependicul to the sufce of the conducto nd hs mgnitude / 0, whee is the sufce chge density t tht point. 4. On n iegully shped conducto, the sufce chge density is getest t loctions whee the dius of cuvtue of the sufce is smllest. We veify the fist thee popeties in the discussion tht follows. The fouth popety is pesented hee so tht we hve complete list of popeties fo conductos in electosttic euilibium, but cnnot be veified until Chpte 25. We cn undestnd the fist popety by consideing conducting slb plced in n extenl field (Fig ). The electic field inside the conducto must be zeo unde the ssumption tht we hve electosttic euilibium. If the field wee not zeo, fee electons in the conducto would expeience n electic foce (F ) nd would ccelete due to this foce. This motion of electons, howeve, would men tht the conducto is not in electosttic euilibium. Thus, the existence of electosttic euilibium is consistent only with zeo field in the conducto. Let us investigte how this zeo field is ccomplished. Befoe the extenl field is pplied, fee electons e unifomly distibuted thoughout the conducto. When the extenl field is pplied, the fee electons ccelete to the left in Figue 24.16, cusing plne of negtive chge to be pesent on the left sufce. The movement of electons to the left esults in plne of positive chge on the ight sufce. These plnes of chge cete n dditionl electic field inside the conducto tht opposes the extenl field. As the electons move, the sufce chge densities on the left nd ight sufces incese until the mgnitude of the intenl field euls tht of the extenl field, esulting in net field of zeo inside the conducto. The time it tkes good conducto to ech euilibium is on the ode of s, which fo most puposes cn be consideed instntneous.
13 SCTION 24.4 Conductos in lectosttic uilibium 751 We cn use Guss s lw to veify the second popety of conducto in electosttic euilibium. Figue shows n bitily shped conducto. A gussin sufce is dwn inside the conducto nd cn be s close to the conducto s sufce s we wish. As we hve just shown, the electic field eveywhee inside the conducto is zeo when it is in electosttic euilibium. Theefoe, the electic field must be zeo t evey point on the gussin sufce, in ccodnce with condition (4) in Section Thus, the net flux though this gussin sufce is zeo. Fom this esult nd Guss s lw, we conclude tht the net chge inside the gussin sufce is zeo. Becuse thee cn be no net chge inside the gussin sufce (which is bitily close to the conducto s sufce), ny net chge on the conducto must eside on its sufce. Guss s lw does not indicte how this excess chge is distibuted on the conducto s sufce, only tht it esides exclusively on the sufce. We cn lso use Guss s lw to veify the thid popety. Fist, note tht if the field vecto hd component pllel to the conducto s sufce, fee electons would expeience n electic foce nd move long the sufce; in such cse, the conducto would not be in euilibium. Thus, the field vecto must be pependicul to the sufce. To detemine the mgnitude of the electic field, we dw gussin sufce in the shpe of smll cylinde whose end fces e pllel to the sufce of the conducto (Fig ). Pt of the cylinde is just outside the conducto, nd pt is inside. The field is pependicul to the conducto s sufce fom the condition of electosttic euilibium. Thus, we stisfy condition (3) in Section 24.3 fo the cuved pt of the cylindicl gussin sufce thee is no flux though this pt of the gussin sufce becuse is pllel to the sufce. Thee is no flux though the flt fce of the cylinde inside the conducto becuse hee 0; this stisfies condition (4). Hence, the net flux though the gussin sufce is tht though only the flt fce outside the conducto, whee the field is pependicul to the gussin sufce. Using conditions (1) nd (2) fo this fce, the flux is A, whee is the electic field just outside the conducto nd A is the e of the cylinde s fce. Applying Guss s lw to this sufce, we obtin da A in 0 A 0 Figue A conducto of bity shpe. The boken line epesents gussin sufce tht cn be s close to the sufce of the conducto s we wish.

Using Guss s lw, find the electic field in the egions lbeled,,, nd in Figue nd the chge distibution on the shell when the entie system is in electosttic euilibium. Solution Fist note tht the chge distibutions on both the sphee nd the shell e chcteized by spheicl symmety ound thei common cente. To detemine the electic field t vious distnces fom this cente, we constuct spheicl gussin sufce fo ech of the fou egions of inteest. Such sufce fo egion is shown in Figue To find inside the solid sphee (egion ), conside gussin sufce of dius. Becuse thee cn be no chge inside conducto in electosttic euilibium, we see tht in 0; thus, on the bsis of Guss s lw nd symmety, 1 0 fo. In egion between the sufce of the solid sphee nd the inne sufce of the shell we constuct spheicl gussin sufce of dius whee b nd note tht the chge inside this sufce is 2 (the chge on the solid sphee). Becuse of the spheicl symmety, the electic field lines must be diected dilly outwd nd be constnt in mgnitude on the gussin sufce.
