Statement

Coulombs law states that between two point charges there is a force of attraction or

repulsion depending

upon the nature of charges.

If the charges are like charges there is a force of repulsion and in the case of unlike

charges there is a force of ` attraction.

The force is a vector quantity which has both magnitude and direction. The magnitude of

force between two electrical charges is given by Coulomb Law. Experiments conducted by

Coulomb showed that the following hold for two charged bodies that are very small in size

compared to their separation so that they can be considered as point charge:

The magnitude of the force is directly proportional to the product of the magnitudes of

the charges.

The magnitude of the force is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between

the charges.

The magnitude of the force depends on the medium.

Thus, if we consider two point charges Q1 (C) and Q2 (C) separated by a distance R (m) in

free space, the force is given mathematically as,

o = 8.854 10-12 10-9 / 36 (F/m)

Thus,

Force is a vector quantity and acts along the line joining the two charges therefore the

above expression is to be multiplied by a unit vector along the line. Thus, vector form is

Force on Q2 is

(1.1.1)

and on Q1 is (1.1.2)

(1.1.3)

The unit of force is Newton (N). The force given by equations (1.1.1) and (1.1.2) is applicable only for point charges.

Usually in the problems on Coulombs law, position of the point charges is given, charges are given and may be asked to

find force on a particular charge.

Step 1 : Draw a neat sketch.

Step 2 : Find vector joining these charges and pointing towards the charge on which force is to be

determined. For example, while finding force on Q1 i.e. F1 arrow of the vector points towards Q1,

while finding force on Q2 i.e. F2, the arrow of the vector points towards Q2.

Step 3 : Find unit vector in the direction of vector and length of the vector (i.e. distance between charges).

Step 4 : Use Coulombs law to find force between point charges.

In the problem if it is asked to find force on a particular charge due to other charges then

2. Gausss Law :

Stmt: The electric flux passing through any closed surface is equal to the total charge enclosed

by that surface.

Let a positive charge Q is enclosed by a closed surface of any shape. At point P consider

an differential element of surface ds and let makes an angle with as shown in Fig. 3.

Here, = ds . The flux crossing is then the product of the normal component of D and

ds.

Therefore, d = flux crossing ds = Dnormal ds = D cos ds

= . .. using definition of dot product

The total flux crossing through the closed surface is,

= = . = .

Here, means integral over a closed surface.

Mathematically Gausss Law can now be expressed as,

Proof: Consider now a positive charge Q situated at the centre of an imaginary sphere of radius

r as shown in fig. 4.

www.awasir.com Page 8

Still having doubts? Awab Sir-89 76 104646

Since a point charge is situated at the centre, the flux density is,

The differential area on the spherical surface is,

= r2 sin d d

Hence = . (r2 sin d d )

= sin d d (as . = 1)

= = 2 2 = Q (C) Fig. 2. due to Point charge

This means that Q Coulombs of electric flux is crossing the surface if Q is the total or net

charge enclosed. Thus Gauss law is proved.

We could have obtained the result for this special case more simply by multiplying Q /

4r by the area of the sphere (4r2). But if the charge is not at the centre of the sphere, or if

law.

Solution: According to Gausss law, the total flux crossing s is equal to total charge enclosed

by the surface s. The total charge enclosed is,

m and at (0,4) m there is a charge of - 0.009 C. Compute the total flux over a sphere of 5 m

The left hand side of it is electric flux and can be determined by having the knowledge

of and d . Its not like Gauss law is used to find only flux. The same law can also be used to

determine D of some known charge distributions. By using some conditions the problem of

finding D is simplified. Before stating these conditions let us have a look in the expression of

Gausss law. The integral in the expression has dot product term. There are two extreme cases

of dot product:

When and d are normal ( )

When and d are parallel ( )

For the first case the integral goes to zero. For the second case if D , and is constant

then,

= =D = Ds

Which is product of required D and the surface area over with D is existing. This product is

equal to charge enclosed. Thus, when charge enclosed is known and area of surface (s) is

known, D due to this charge configuration can be determined. Now, its time to specify the

conditions which simplifies the problem of determining D.

www.awasir.com Page 10

Still having doubts? Awab Sir-89 76 104646

D is everywhere either normal or tangential to the closed surface, so that becomes either D ds

or zero, respectively.

D is essentially constant over that part of the surface where D is normal.

The surface is closed, this is obvious because see the circle on integral sign.

The type of surface or surface elements which satisfies which satisfies these conditions are called as

Special Gaussian Surfaces.

While solving problems of finding due to given charge configuration, you should have

knowledge of the symmetry, with the help of which a proper closed surface can be selected.

Remember,

While dealing with the problems of positive point charge, electric field of it is directed

radially outward from the point charge i.e. in spherical system and

While dealing with the problems of line charge electric field is directed radially outward

from the line charge i.e. in cylindrical system.

i.e. A + B = 9 (ii)

Integrating once again, V = Ax + B (i)

To find A and B apply known voltages to eqn. (i)

V = 0 at x = 0 gives, 0 = A(0) + B

This is variation of voltage in region 1. To find E we have,

For region 2:

Voltages are, at x = 2 cm, V = 66.66 volts

at x = 4 cm, V = 100 volts

Since V is changing only w.r.t. x, the expression for V after solving Laplace eqn. will be

similar to eqn. (i). But the values of A and B will be different. To find A and B apply known

voltages in region 2 to eqn. (i).

V = 66.66 at x = 2 cm gives,

66.66 = A (2 10-2) + B (ii)

and V = 100 at x = 4 cm gives,

100 = A (4 10-2) + B (iii)

Solving eqns. (ii) and (iii) we get, A = 16.665 10 and B = 33.33

Uniqueness Theorem:

In the previous sections we have seen that a relatively simple problems can be

solved by direct integration. But in complicated problems some other methods of solution

must be used. One of the method known as method of images is explained in next

section. Let us see now what is uniqueness theorem.

Statement of uniqueness theorem: A solution of Poissons equation (of which

Laplaces equation is a special case) that satisfies the given boundary conditions is a

unique

solution.

Proof: Consider a volume bounded outside

by a surface s0, which may be a surface at infinity,

where V is ordinarily taken to be zero. Inside the closed

surface s0 there are number of charged conducting bodies

(Q1, Q2, Q3 ,. Qn ) with surfaces s1, s2, s3, . sn and

potential V is specified on all their surfaces as shown in

Fig. 6.2.1.

Fig. 5: Surface s0 encloses volume

Suppose there are two solutions to Poissons equation in : with conducting bodies at s1, s2, ...., sn

= (i)

and = (ii)

Also assume that both V1 and V2 satisfy the same boundary conditions on s 1, s2,

. sn and s0. Let us define a new difference potential:

Vd = V 1 V2

From equations (i) and (ii) we can write,

2

(V1 V2) = 0 by Equation

(i) minus Equation (ii)

2

i.e. Vd = 0

(iii)

Since the potentials on the conducting boundaries are specified for any surface, V d = 0.

We know the vector identity

(f ) =

Let f = Vd and ; we have

= +

From equation (iii), then we have

=

Taking the volume integral over the volume gives,

www.awasir.com Page 18

Still having doubts? Awab Sir-89 76 104646

(iv)

The divergence theorem allows us to replace the volume integral on the left side of

above equation by the closed surface integral over the surface surrounding the volume.

The divergence theorem is:

=

The right hand side of Equation (iv) can now be written in terms of surface integral as,

(v)

Here, d denotes a differential vector area on the surface s 0.

Consider a large surface s0, which encloses the whole system. The surface

integral on the L.H.S. of

Equation (v) can be evaluated by considering s0 as the surface of a very large sphere

with radius R. When R is very large both V 1 and V2 can be thought of as potentials due to point

charges (here conducting surfaces are treated as point charges since size of it will be very small

as compared to R of a very large sphere). These potentials fall off as 1/R (V = Q /4 R).

2 2

Consequently falls off as 1/ R , making the integrand ( ) fall of as 1/ R . Hence, the

surface integral on the left side of equation (v) decreases as 1/ R and approaches zero at infinity.

So the right side of equation (v) is also zero. Thus, we have

Since is always positive (square term is always positive), everywhere above equation is

satisfied only if = 0. If the gradient of Vs i.e. V1 V2 is everywhere zero, then V1 V2

cannot change with any coordinates i.e. it has same value at all points in as it has on the

boundary surfaces s1, s2, ., sn, where Vd = 0. It follows that Vd throughout the volume is zero.

Therefore, V1 = V2 gives two identical solutions. The uniqueness theorem is also valid for

Laplaces equation as Laplaces equation is a special case of Poissons. To prove uniqueness for

Laplaces equation start with and and the proof is identical from this

point.

The implication of the uniqueness theorem is that a solution of an electrostatic problem

satisfying its boundary conditions is the only possible solution, irrespective of the method by

which the solution is obtained.

4.1 Biot-Sarvart Law:

This law is also called as Amperes law for the current element. It gives differential

magnetic field intensity, d due to differential current element I d . Consider a filament

through which current of I amp is passing. We are interested in finding field intensity H at point

P.

4.1.1 Statement of Biot Savart Law:

Magnitude of dH at point P is proportional to product of current,

differential length dl, the angle between the filament and line connecting

differential length to the point of interest P. It is inversely proportional

to the square of the distance from the filament to point P. The constant of

proportionality is 1 / 4 .

Mathematically,

dH =

(4.1.1)

The direction of dH is normal to the plane containing the differential element and the line

drawn from the filament to the point P.

Of the two possible normals that normal is chosen which is in the direction of progress of

a right handed screw turned from d through the smaller angle to the line from the

filament to P.

In vector notations,

d = (A/m)

(4.1.2)

= unit vector from differential current element to point

P.

Id = differential current element.

R = distance of differential current element from point P.

Differential current elements have no separate existence. All elements making up the

complete correct filament contribute to and must be included. The summation leads to

the integral form of Biot-savart law as,

=

(4.1.3)

The above integral is a closed line integral , which is must to ensure that all current

elements are included (the contour may close at )

Alternate forms of the Biot-savart law in terms of distributed sources like and are

obtained using Eqn.,

Id ds = dv

as,

d =

(4.1.4)

and d =

(4.1.5)

i.e.

(4.1.6)

(4.1.2), (4.1.4) or (4.1.5) then the integral is single integral, triple integral or double

integral, which is very clear from d , dv and ds in the expressions for dH.

Consider the conductor shown in Fig.(b) , carries a current I. different paths are shown in

the Fig.(c). Path A and B enclose the conductor, therefore the line integral of around the

closed path A and B is equal to current I but the line integral around path C is less than I, since

the entire current is not enclosed by the path.

Fig.(c) shows that the line integral around closed path equals current in the wire when

path enclose the wire (Fig.(i) and (ii)), but is zero when the paths do not enclose the wire (Fig.

(iii) and (iv)).

When the field vector is present in a single continuous media then at every

point in amedia, the magnitude and direction of field will be same. When light travels from one

media to another , the direction of light changes. Similar to this when the field goes from one

media to second media, the direction as well as magnitude of field changes.

Suppose the field in one media is given and we require to calculate field in

second media. These types of problems are solved by knowing the relation between the

tangential and normal components of the fields in two media. As in electrostatics, the relation

between tangential and normal components is derived separately.

Figure shows a boundary between two isotropic homogenous linear medias

with permeabilities The Gaussian surface and the closed path is constructed at the

boundary between medium 1 and medium 2 as shown.

Consider a small rectangular volume positioned across the interface such that

it is half in each media. Instead of rectangular volume any closed surface can be considered.

The normal components of and are and present at the top and bottom of the

volume. Since magnetic flux lines are continuous we have,

The closed surface consists of six surfaces. Thus L.H.S. of above equation is obtained by

L.H.S =

To find the relation between normal components at the interface, and must be very close to

the interface which requires,

In the figure, the circle with dots indicates that the current is coming out of the page. This

current is the surface current (K) flowing along the interface. Since width of the rectangle is ,

the current enclosed within the path is K .

The rectangular path consists of four sides, thus LHS of eq. (A) can be split as

Divergence theorem is used to convert closed surface integral into volume integral and using stokes

theorem, closed line integral is converted into surface integral.

Divergence Theorem d dv

Stokes Theorem d d

These relations are frequently required in this chapter. Some of the relations we studied

in previous chapters are called as Maxwells equations for static field. These are

summarized below.

In order to get clear understanding between time varying and static fields, before we start

discussing time varying fields, the equations governing static fields are as follows :

5.1.1 Faradays Law :

Statement :

The emf is included in a loop when the magnetic flux is changing in the vicinity of it.

Since for static field, flux is not changing with respect to time then the emf induced in a

loop is zero. The emf induced in a loop is expressed is expressed in terms of electric field as,

emf d

Thus for static field, Faradays law is expressed mathematically as

d = 0

(5.1.1)

This relation is called as integral form of the Maxwells equation derived from Faradays law

for the static field. This relation stands because the work done in a closed path is equal to zero.

Using Stokes Theorem,

d = d

www.awasir.com Page 28

Still having doubts? Awab Sir-89 76 104646

d = 0

but d therefore = 0 (5.1.2)

This relation is called as point form of the Maxwells equation derived from Faradays law for

the static field.

Statement :

The line integral of H around a closed path is equal to the current enclosed by that path.

d

The current I can be expressed in terms of J as,

I = d

Then, mathematically Amperes law is given as

d = I = d (5.1.3)

This is called as integral form of Maxwells equation derived from Amperes law for static

field.

To relate with convert line integral into surface integral using Stokes theorem as

d =

d

or

(5.1.4)

This is called as point form of Maxwells equation derived from Amperes law for static field.

Statement:

The total electric flux crossing the closed surface is equal to the total charge enclosed by that

surface.

The electric flux through the closed surface is,

= .d

The charge can be expressed in terms of v as,

Qencl. = dv

. d = Qencl = dv

(5.1.5)

This relation is called as integral form of the Maxwells equation derived from Gausss law for

the static field.

to relate with v convert surface integral into volume integral using

Divergence theorem as,

d =

) dv = dv

or = v

(5.1.6)

v

This is called as point form of Maxwells equation derived from Gausss law for the static field.

Statement :

The total magnetic flux crossing the closed surface is equal to zero.

The reason for this is, magnetic flux lines are always closed in nature. Due to which

a closed surface in the presence of these lines will have same number of incoming and outgoing

flux lines. The incoming flux, if considered positive then the outgoing flux is negative, resulting

in total flux crossing closed surface equal to zero.

In case of electric field, the positive and negative charge separately exist and electric flux

originates from positive charge and terminates o negative charge. Thus electric flux line have

start and end points. This is not the case for magnetic lines. The magnetic field lines are always

www.awasir.com Page 30

Still having doubts? Awab Sir-89 76 104646

closed in nature. There is no starting and end point, this is called as non-existence of monopole

in magnetic field.

Mathematically it is given as,

d = 0 (5.1.7)

This is called as integral form of Maxwells equation derived from Gausss law for magnetic

field for static field.

Using Divergence theorem d =

= 0

i.e. = 0 (5.1.8)

This is called as point form of Maxwells equation derived from Gausss law for Magnetic field

for static field.

Statement :

The total current crossing the closed surface is equal to zero.

Incoming current = outgoing current

i.e. current is continuous across the node, its value remain same. Instead of node, consider a

closed surface in the presence of current, then KCL is also valid for this case. The current

through closed surface is expressed in terms of J as

= d

But incoming current if considered positive then outgoing current is negative, resulting in total

current crossing the closed surface equal to zero.

Mathematically, d = 0 (5.1.9)

This is called as integral form of Maxwells equation derived from continuity equation for

static field.

= 0

i.e. = 0

(5.1.10)

This is called as point form of Maxwells equation derived from continuity equation for static

field.

Maxwells equations for static field are summarized in Table 5.1.1

Amperes d = d

Faradays d = 0

Continuity equation d = 0 = 0

In this article we have studied Maxwells equations for static field. In practice field always vary with time.

Maxwells equations for this field has to be written separately, these are not same for static fields. Only Gauss

law, for electric and magnetic is so powerful that it does not require any modification. All other laws require

modification .

The fundamental property of electrical charge is that it can neither be created nor

destroyed. If a charge disappears from one point it must reappear at another point. This

postulate is called as Conservation of charge.

Consider a volume v located inside a conducting media. The current density is a

vector having the direction of current flow. The current coming out from any volume can be

thought of as a rate of decrease of charge in that volume. Mathematically, current is expressed

as

i = (i)

Also charge is expressed in terms of v

q = v dv

i = = v dv

surface

But current i through closed surface can also be obtained as,

i = d (ii)

If the region of integration is stationary i.e. volume is not changing with time (because we

assume only v is changing with time). Then d/dt in above equation can be written partial

differentiation . Thus, comparing Equations (i) and (ii),

d = v dv = dv

= dv

d = dv

(5.1.5((i))

To relate with v we have to convert surface integral into volume integral using

Divergence theorem as

d = ( dv

( dv = dv

Since both sides are volume integrals, we can compare to write,

During our study of magnetostatics we formulated the point form of Amperes law as,

(i)

Taking the divergence of both sides of this eqn. we get,

i.e. = 0

This result is not consistent with the continuity eqn. ( ) i.e. statement of Amperes

Law is inconsistent for time varying fields and some modification is required in it. Suppose

we add an unknown term to (i), then

Using eqns. (ii) and (iv) we get,

(A)

In the above eqn. and are added means units of both are same, this can be checked as

follows:

As we have expressed current as surface integral of current density (J), it implies that the

current density is having unit of A/m2. Consider now the unit of . As D is nothing but the flux

density its unit is C/m2 and the unit of will be C/s/m2. As the basic unit of ampere (A) is C/s,

therefore is having unit of A/m2. Thus is also a current density and is called as

displacement current density, while J is called as conduction current density. The

displacement current density is denoted by Jd or Jdisp , while conduction current density is

denoted by Jc or Jcond.

elements

Physical significance of Jd

Consider a resistor and capacitor in parallel as shown in fig. 7(a). The voltage V is

applied across the parallel combination. The nature of the current flow through the resistor is

different from that through the capacitor. The constant voltage across a resistor produces a

continuous flow of current of constant value given by,

i1 = V/R (i)

This current is called as conduction current.

The current flows through the capacitor only when voltage across it is changing i.e.

i2 = (ii)

This current is the displacement current. Physically the displacement current is not a current

in the sense that there is no flow of a physical quantity like charges.

Now consider the resistor and capacitor elements, each occupies a volume as shown in

fig. 7(b). Fringing of the field is neglected. Inside each element the electric field E equals, given

by

E = V/d

Then the current density J1 , inside the resistor element is product of the electric field E

and the conductivity of the medium inside the resistor element. It is also equal to i 1 divided by

the cross-sectional area A, or

J1 = = E (iii)

The capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor is C = A/d, where A is the area of the

plates and d is the spacing between them. Substituting this value for C, and V = Ed, into eqn.

(ii) yields,

www.awasir.com Page 35

Still having doubts? Awab Sir-89 76 104646

i2 = = A (iv)

Dividing eqn. (iv) by the area A gives a current density inside a capacitor. Thus,

J2 = =

We know D = E J2 = (v)

In the expressions (iii) and (v), the term J 1 is called as conduction current density and J 2 is

the displacement current density. Eqns. (iii) and (v) in vector form are

(vi)

(vii)

Now, instead of having two separate elements in parallel, one of which acts like a pure

resistance and the other like a pure capacitance, there is only one element which has both

capacitance and resistance as shown in fig. 7(c), where there is a capacitor filled with a

conducting dielectric so that both conduction and displacement currents are present.

Then the total current density is

Then the total current I is

the media involved in the problem we should change these equations. The media may be

Free space (ii) Good dielectric (iii) Good conductor

Let us discuss properties of these media so that using these we can modify Maxwells

equations.

Free space:

Free space is a space without charges, so it will not have any charge density.

Due to absence of charges there is no conduction through space giving zero conduction

density.

Good dielectric:

Dielectric also is a medium without charges and thus there is no charge density

For a good dielectric, the displacement current is greater than conduction current and thus

conduction current ( ) can be neglected

Good conductor:

In normal state good conductor will not have any charge (temperature effect is neglected)

giving

In good conductor the conduction current (J) is greater than displacement current ( )

and can be neglected.
