Electric Field due to Point Charge and System of Charges

Electric Field due to Point Charge and System of Charges

In this article, we will rigorously derive expressions for the Electric Field due to Point Charge and System of Charges. We will review the Coulomb’s quantitative statement about the force between two point charges. However, we have to understand the definition of point charge before we start our discussion. When the dimension of the charged … Read moreElectric Field due to Point Charge and System of Charges

Electric Field due to Dipole at General, Axial and Equatorial Points

electric field due to dipole

What is an Electric Dipole An electric dipole is defined as a pair of equal and opposite charges separated by a distance. However, a continuous charge distribution can also be approximated as an electric dipole from a large distance. These dipoles are characterized by their dipole moment, a vector quantity defined as the charge multiplied … Read moreElectric Field due to Dipole at General, Axial and Equatorial Points
