2: W 1/3, 4: Th 1/4
Today, we'll review the unit on electrostatics.  We will discuss the topics for tomorrow's test:
  • Coulomb's Law
  • Finding electric field
    • E = F/q
    • electric field integral (superposition of dq)
    • Gauss's Law
  • Electric potential energy of a configuration of charges
  • Finding electric potential
    • potential integral (superposition of dq)
    • Path integral if we know electric field (compatible with Gauss's Law)
  • Calculating field and potential due to non-uniform charge distributions
With any time remaining, you will find problems to do on AP Central, and work on them in groups.
Homework:  Study for Electrostatics Exam next class Friday, January 5th.
