In this Electrostatics section of Physics we cover the topics listed in the table below, each topic has a written tutorial (which you can read on your screen, print to read or use a web reader), a video tutorial, revision notes, revision questions and supporting calculators which allow you to check your own computations and calculations.
|14.1||Electric Charges. Conductors and Insulators|
|14.4||Electric Potential Energy|
|14.6||Electric Flux. Gauss Law|
|14.7||Capacitance and Capacitors|
This section includes concepts like electric charges, conductors and insulators, electric force, field, potential and potential energy. Then, more advanced concepts such as electric flux and capacitance are discussed, as well as the relevant laws and methods (Gauss law, combination of capacitors and energy stored in them).
In addition to the Electrostatics tutorials, we also provide online Electrostatics Calculators which allow you to calculate specific Electrostatics formula in support of the tutorials or to check and verify your own calculations in support of your homework, coursework or thesis.
The following Physics Calculators are provided in support of the Electrostatics tutorials.
