INTRODUCTION

An electrostatic field
is produced by a
static charge
distribution.

A magnetostatic
field is produced by
the moving charges
or a constant current
flow (DC current)

## AC current produced the

electromagnetic field.

## Electro Static Field

Charge
Charges are measured in Coulombs (C).
The smallest unit of electric charge is found on the negatively
charged electron and positively charged proton.
The electron mass, qe= -1.602x10-19 (C).
So, 1 C would represent about 6x1018 electrons.
In real world, electric charges
can be found
at a point
along a line
on a surface
Inside a Volume
combination the above
distributions

POINT CHARGE
The concept of a point charge is used when the dimensions of
an electric charge distribution are very small compared to the
distance to neighboring electric charges.
A LINE CHARGE
A line charge denotes as the electric charge distribution along a
thin line.
Total charge along the line :

A SURFACE CHARGE
A surface charge is defined as charges distribution on a thin
sheet.
Total charge on the surface :
A VOLUME CHARGE

## A volume charge means electric charges in a volume. This

## The units (SI):

Charge: coulomb (C)
Distance: meter
Force: Newton
The constants:
Ke, the Coulomb constant:
ke = 8.9876 x 109 N.m2/C2 = 1/(4 o)
o the permittivity of free space:
o = 8.8542 x 10-12 C2 / N.m2

If there are more than two point charges, the principle of superposition is
used. The force on a charge in the presence of several other charges is
the sum of the forces on that charges due to each of the other charges
acting alone.
The strength and direction of that electric field at a point in space is then
measured by the force of the electric field exerts on another charge
(often called the test charge) at that point.

## Line Charge using Coulombs law

A ring of charge in free space is characterized by a
uniform charge density of l. The ring has a radius b
and positioned in the x-y plane as shown in the figure.
Find the electric field intensity, E at a point P(0, 0, h)
along the axis of the ring at a distance h from its
center.
Solution:
Consider the electric field generated by a differential
segment of the ring, for example, at (b, , 0) as indicated by
segment 1 in the figure. This segment has a length,
dl = b d and contains charge dq = l dl = l b d. The

## Infinite line charge using Gausss law

Consider an infinite line of uniform charge l (C/m) which lies along
the z-axis. Determine the expression of electric flux density, D at a
point, P.
Solution:
A cylindrical surface containing P is chosen to satisfy the symmetry
condition, as shown in the figure. D is constant and always normal
to the cylindrical Gaussian surface: D D
Applying Gausss law to an arbitrary length, l of the line,
Q l l D ds D ds

## where ds 2 l is the surface area of the Gaussian surface

Therefore, Q D 2 l

surfaces of the cylinder.
Hence, D l or E l

## Infinite sheet of charge using Gausss law

Find the electric flux density, D at a point, P for an infinite sheet of uniform charge s
(C/m2) lying on the x-y plane as shown in the figure.
Solution:
To determine D, a rectangular box that cut symmetrically by
the sheet of charge is chosen. Two of its faces are parallel to
the sheet. D will be normal to the sheet:

## Applying Gausss law, we obtain:

## Electric force between two positive charges or two negative charges is

repulsive. Therefore, to bring two charges close together, work must be
done.
The voltage (or potential difference) V , between two points is the amount
of work, or potential energy, required to move a unit charge between
these two points.
The potential difference between any two points P2 and P1 (Figure 1) is
obtained by integrating along any path between them. Thus

V21= V2-V1=

P2

P1

E dl

## where V1 and V2 are the electric potentials at points P1 and P2,

respectively. The result of the line integral on the right-hand side of does
not depend on which specific integration path taken between points P1
and P2. It depends only on the location of the points. (This is true for
28
electrostatic fields, and may not be true for time varying fields)

## There is no absolute voltage value at a point in a circuit. There is no

absolute electric potential at a point in space as well.
Voltage of a point in a circuit is given with refer to a reference point
(which is ground with voltage value of zero).
For electric potential, zero reference potential point is chosen to be at
infinity.
The electric potential V at any point P in an electric field is defined as
the work done in bringing a unit charge (1 Coulomb) from zero
reference (an infinite distance away) to point P against the electric field,
and is given by

## Consider the differential form

For a scalar function V,

dV V.d l

By comparing equation
(12) and (13), we obtain

E = - grad V = - V
Where V is the gradient of V.
The electric flux lines are everywhere normal (perpendicular)
to the lines of equi-potential (or surfaces of equi-potential).

## The relationship between

V and E in differential form allows

## us to determine E for any charge distribution by first

calculating
V, and then taking the negative gradient of V to

31
find E .

Classification of Materials

## A material is said to be homogeneous if its constitutive

parameters do not vary from point to point, and
It is isotropic if its constitutive parameters are independent of
direction.
The conductivity of materials is the measurement of how easily
electrons can travel through a material under the influence of an
external electric field.
Materials are classified as superconductor, conductor,
semiconductor, and insulator, according to the magnitudes of
their conductivities.
A conductor has a large number of loosely attached electrons in
the outermost shells of the atoms. These free electrons migrate
easily from one atom to another in the presence of an external
electric field.
The electrons movement is characterized by an average velocity
called the electron drift velocity, u e , which gives rise to a
conduction current.
32

## The conductivity of most metals is in the range

from 106 to 107 S/m. Superconductor, is a perfect
conductor with = .
In an insulator, the electrons are tightly held to the
atoms. It is very difficult to remove them even under
the influence of an electric field. For good insulators,
the conductivity ranges from 10-10 to10-17 S/m.
A perfect insulator is a material with = 0.
Materials whose conductivities fall between those of
conductors and insulators are called semiconductors.
The conductivity of pure germanium, for example, is
2.2 S/m.
33

Conductors

## Any conductor subjected to time-invariant electric field is an

equipotiential medium. The electric potential is the same at
every point in the conductor volume.
Electrostatic field induces a distribution of electric charge on
the surface of a conductor. This charge distribution is such that
the electric field at every point in the conductor volume, due to
the combined effect of applied electrostatic field and that due
to the induced surface charges, is zero.
If two or more conductors are present, though each is an
equipotential medium, but there can be a potential difference
between them.

34

Definition:
When there is no net motion of charge within a conductor, the
conductor is said to be in electrostatic equilibrium
When in electrostatic equilibrium, the properties:
The electric field is zero everywhere inside the conductor,
whether the conductor is solid or hollow
If an isolated conductor carries a charge, the charge resides on
its surface
The electric field just outside a charged conductor is
perpendicular to the surface and has a magnitude of /o, s is
the surface charge density at that point
On an irregularly shaped conductor, the surface charge
density is inversely proportional to the radius at that local
surface, so s is greatest at locations where the radius of
curvature is the smallest.

## Conductance of Coaxial Cable

The radii of the inner and outer conductors of a coaxial cable of length l
are, a and b, respectively (Fig. shown below). The insulation material
has conductivity . Obtain an expression for G, the conductance per unit
length of the insulation layer.

Properties of Conductors
In a conductor there are large number of electrons free to move.
This fact has several interesting consequences

## Excess charge placed on a conductor moves to the exterior

surface of the conductor
The electric field inside a conductor is zero when charges
are at rest
A conductor shields a cavity within it from external electric
fields
Electric field lines contact conductor surfaces at right angles
A conductor can be charged by contact or induction
Connecting a conductor to ground is referred to as grounding

Dielectrics

## Good dielectrics may not contain free charges.

This is because the atoms in these dielectrics have electrons that are
tightly bound to the nuclei.
Molecules of dielectric material can be divided into two categories:
Polar molecules and non-polar molecules.
A molecule, which does not have a permanent dipole moment, is a nonpolar molecule.
A non-polar molecule is a molecule where the centre of gravity of its
positive nucleus and of electrons is the same. When placed in electric field,
negative and positive charge of the molecule will shift in opposite direction
against their mutual attraction and forms a dipole, which is aligned with the
external electric field as shown in Figure 3 below. The dielectric is said to
be polarized. Examples: N2, O2 and H2.

40

40

## A polar molecule is molecule that has permanent dipole moments.

A polar molecule is a molecule where the centre of gravity of its positive
nucleus, and of electrons is naturally displaced at different locations
which acts like a permanent dipole.
These permanent dipoles are randomly oriented throughout the interior of the
material. Under external electric field each of these dipole molecules will
experience a torque tending to align (rotates) its dipole moment parallel to the
electric field as shown in Figure 4 below. An additional charge displacement
may be produced if the field is sufficiently strong. Examples: H2O and N2O.

41
The molecules for both polar and non-polar dielectric materials will become
polarized under the influence of the electric field. Although it is not free to move
the electron, cloud surrounding the nucleus in an atom will distort in a manner .

## Therefore, when a dielectric material is placed in the electric

field, the existence of induced surface charges will result in a
weaker field inside the dielectric material.

## To analyze the large-scale effect of induced electric

dipoles in a dielectric material, we define a quantity
called the dipole moment per unit volume or
polarisation vector by:

## In this expression n is the number of dipoles

(molecules) per unit volume, and p k is the dipole
moment of the kth dipole (molecule).
43

Dielectrics

## The direction of P is from negative induced charge to positive

induced charge for each dipole.

## The electric flux density (or electric displacement), D ,is

expressed as

D = o E + P ( mC )
... ( 23)
In a linear and isotropic material, the polarisation is directly
proportional
to the electric field intensity. Thus,

... (24)
P = o e E ,

## where the quantity e is a dimensionless number called

the electric susceptibility of the material.
44

Dielectrics
If the electric susceptibility (e) is independent of the electric
field intensity the dielectric material is said to be linear, and if
it is independent of the spatial coordinates it is homogeneous.
Using this new quantity we rewrite the displacement as:

The dimensionless quantity r is the relative permittivity or

Dielectrics

## When we subject a dielectric to a strong electric field,

the forces applied on the electrons by the field can
reach a point where they overcome the forces binding
the electrons to the atomic nuclei.
Some electrons will then be removed from their
nuclei. This phenomenon is known as dielectric
breakdown.
The minimum electric field intensity at which
dielectric breakdown occurs is the dielectric strength
of the material.

where E1t and E2t are the tangential components of the electric

respectively.
The height of the contour bc = da is infinitely small so that
their contributions to the line integral can be ignored as the

the electric fields at the interface of two dielectric

If these two media are dielectrics with permittivity 1

(D1t / 1) = (D2t / 2)

electric fields

## The boundary condition for the normal component of the

electric fields is obtained by constructing a pillbox with top
and bottom surface area of S and height h. Again the height
h is assumed to be very small (which approximate zero).
Applying Gauss law we have:

D ds Q ( D1 n 2 D2 n1 )S ( D1 D2 ) n 2 S

Therefore,

## D1n and D2n are the normal components of the

electric flux densities at the boundary, in medium 1
and medium 2 respectively.
The electric flux density is discontinuous across an
interface if a surface charge exists. The size of the
discontinuity is equal to the surface charge density.

## The corresponding boundary condition for E is

1E1n - 2E2n = S
... (29)
51

Example: Application of
Boundary Conditions

## The x-y plane is a charge-free boundary, separating two

dielectric media with permittivity 1 and 2, as shown in
Figure 8. If the magnitude of the electric field intensity
in dielectric 1 at a point on the boundary is E1. It makes
an angle 1 with the normal. Determine the magnitude
E2 and direction 2, of the electric field intensity at the
same point on the boundary, in dielectric 2.

Figure 8
52

## Example: Application of Boundary

Conditions
Solution:
Equating the tangential component of the two electric
intensities at the interface we find:
E2 sin 2 = E1 sin 1.
Since the surface charge density at the interface is zero,
the normal component of the two electric flux densities
are also equal, i.e. :
2 E2 cos 2 = 1 E1 cos 1.

## Let the medium 1 be a dielectric and medium 2 be a conductor.

Thus the boundary conditions become

... (30.1)
D1n = .E1n = s

Where is the permittivity of the dielectric medium and s
indicates surface charge density induced by the electric field in
the dielectric. Therefore, E is always normal to the surface at
the conductor boundary.

Capacitance

## A capacitor, constructed using two

pieces of conductors M1 and M2, of
arbitrary shape is shown in the
figure. A homogeneous dielectric
material is placed between these
two conductors
Assume that M1 and M2 carry equal
amount of charges but with
different polarity +Q and -Q. There
are no other charges present, and
thus the total charge of the system is
zero.

Capacitance

## This capacitor can be characterized by the magnitude of the

charge, Q, on the conductor and the voltage difference, V,

## When a source is connected to a capacitor, it uses energy in charging up the

capacitor.
If the capacitor plates are made of a good conductor with zero resistance
and if the dielectric separating the two conductors has zero conductivity
and is hysteresis-free, then no power losses occur anywhere in the
capacitor.
The charging-up energy is stored in the electric field in dielectric medium
in the form of potential energy. Electric energy stored in a capacitor is the
same as the work required to charge it up. The amount of stored energy W
is related to Q, C and V.
The energy is stored in the dielectric medium in the form of electrostatic
potential energy.

## Static Magnetic Filed

If charges are moving with constant velocity, a static magnetic (or magnetostatic)
field is produced. Thus, magnetostatic fields originate from currents (for instance,
direct currents in current-carrying wires).
Most of the equations we have derived for the electric fields may be readily used to
obtain corresponding equations for magnetic fields if the equivalent analogous
quantities are substituted.

## Biot & Savart produced an equation that gives the magnetic

field at some point in space in terms of the current that
produces the field.
a wire carrying steady current I, the magnetic
field dB at some point P has the following
properties:
The vector dB is to both ds (direction of I)
& to the vector r directed from the element ds
to the point P.
The magnetic field wraps in circles around a wire.
The direction is found using the right-hand
rule.
Thumb of right hand in the direction of the
current, fingers curl in the direction of B. Field

## The magnitude of dB is inversely proportional

to r2, where r is the distance from the element ds
to the point P.
The magnitude of dB is proportional to the
current I and to the length ds of the element.
The magnitude of dB is proportional to sin q,
where q is the angle between the vectors ds and
r.

## Calculation of Magnetic Field

Two ways to calculate the Magnetic Field:

Biot-Savart Law:
I

Ampere's Law
"High symmetry"

Amperes Law
Draw an amperian loop around a system of
currents (like the two wires at right). The
loop can be any shape, but it must be closed.

## Add up the component of along

the loop, for
B
each element of length ds around this closed
loop.
The value of this integral is proportional to the
current enclosed:

## Magnetic Field Outside a Long

Straight Wire with Current

## We already used the Biot-Savart Law to show

that, for this case,
i.
B 0
2r
Lets show it again, using Amperes Law:
First, we are free to draw an Amperian loop of
any shape, but since we know that the
magnetic field goes in circles around a wire,
lets choose a circular loop (of radius r).
Then B and ds are parallel, and B is constant
on the loop, so

B ds B2r 0ienc

B 0

B ds 0ienc

## Magnetic Field Inside a Long

Straight Wire with Current

## Calculate B inside the wire.

Draw a circular Amperian loop around the
axis, of radius r < R.
The enclosed current is less than the total
current, because some is outside the
Amperian loop. The amount enclosed is

## (a) BL(6a)< BR(6a) (b) BL(6a)= BR(6a) (c) BL(6a)> BR(6a)

Amperes Law can be used to find the field in both cases.
The Amperian loop in each case is a circle of radius R=6a in the plane of
the screen.
The field in each case has cylindrical symmetry, being everywhere
tangent to the circle.
Therefore the field at R=6a depends only on the total current enclosed!!
In each case, a total current I is enclosed.

## We can make the field stronger by

simply adding more loops. A many
turn coil of wire with current is
called a solenoid.

## The field near the wires is still circular, but

farther away the fields blend into a
nearly constant field down the axis.

## The actual field looks more like this:

Solenoids
Compare with electric field in a capacitor.
Like a capacitor, the field is uniform inside (except near the ends), but the
direction of the field is different.
Approximate that the field is constant inside and zero outside (just like capacitor).

## We can use Amperes Law to calculate B inside

the solenoid.
Characterize the windings in terms of number
of turns per unit length, n. Each turn carries
current i, so total current over length h is inh.

Toroids

## Notice that the field of the solenoid sticks out

both ends, and spreads apart (weakens) at the
ends.
We can wrap our coil around like a doughnut, so
that it has no ends. This is called a toroid.
Now the field has no ends, but wraps uniformly
around in a circle.
What is B inside? We draw an Amperian loop
parallel to the field, with radius r. If the coil has a
total of N turns, then the Amperian loop encloses
current Ni.

## Force Between Two Parallel

Currents
Recall that a wire carrying a current in a magnetic
field feels a force.
When there are two parallel wires carrying current,
the magnetic field from one causes a force on the
other.
When the currents are parallel, the two wires are
pulled together.
When the currents are anti-parallel, the two wires are
forced apart.
