ENGINEERING ELECTROMAGNETICS(15EC36)-III SEM EC MODULE 1 Figure 1.2 The vector force F2 is the force on Q2 by Q1 . According to Coulomb’s law , this vector force is given by, F= Q1 Q 2 a12 4πε0 R212 (3) Where, a12 is a unit vector in the direction of R12 , or a12 = R12 r2 − r1 = |R12 | |r2 − r1| (4) The force expressed by Coulomb’s law is a mutual force i.e, F2 = -F1. Electric field Intensity Consider one charge Q1 fixed in position and move a second charge slowly around, we note that there exists everywhere a force on this second charge, in other words this second charge is displaying the existence of a force field. Call this second charge a test charge Qt . The force on it is given by Coulomb’s law, F= Q1 Q t a 4πε0 R21t 1t (5) Writing this force as a force per unit charge gives, Ft Q1 = a Q t 4πε0 R21t 1t (6) The quantity on the RHS of equation (6) is a function only of Q1 and the directed line segment from Q1 to the position of the test charge. This describes a vector field and is called the electric field intensity (E). “Electric field intensity is defined as the vector force on a unit positive test charge”. Mr.JAGADEESH M, ASST .

ENGINEERING ELECTROMAGNETICS(15EC36)-III SEM EC MODULE 1 The electric field intensity can be measured by the unit newtons per Coulomb – the force per unit charge. The practical unit is Volts per meter(V/m). It can be represented by the letter ‘E’ . Ft Q1 =E= a Qt 4πε0 R21t 1t (7) In general electric field intensity can be expressed as, E= Q a 4πε0 R2 R (8) If charge Q locates center of a spherical co-ordinate system, then the unit vector aR becomes radial unit vector ar and R is ‘r’ . Hence, E= Q a 4πε0 r 2 r (9) Writing these expressions in rectangular co-ordinate system, for a charge Q at the origin we have, R = r = xax + yay + zaz aR = ar = xax + yay + zaz √x 2 + y 2 + z 2 (10) Figure 1.3 Therefore, E= 4πε0 (x 2 Q x y z ax + ay + az ) ( 2 2 + y + z ) √x 2 + y 2 + z 2 √x 2 + y 2 + z 2 √x 2 + y 2 + z 2 (11) For a charge Q located at source point r1 = x1ax + y1ay + z1az as showen in figure 1.4. The field at general point r = xax + yay + zaz is given by E= Q r − r′ Q(r − r′) = 2 4πε0 |r − r′| |r − r′| 4πε0 |r − r′|3 (12) Since the Coulomb’s force has linear , the electric field intensity due to two point charges Q1 at r1 and Q2 at r2 is the sum of the forces on Qt caused by Q1 and Q2 acting alone. i.e, E= Q1 Q2 a + a 1 4πε0 |r − r1 |2 4πε0 |r − r2 |2 2 Mr.JAGADEESH M, ASST .

ENGINEERING ELECTROMAGNETICS(15EC36)-III SEM EC MODULE 1 Field due to continuous volume charge distribution When the number of charges is infinite in a space of finite dimensions, the distance of separation between the individual charges tends to become zero. Then it amounts to continuous distribution of charges. If the charge distribution is such that the charges are distributed continuously in a volume , then it is referred to as a volume charge distribution. For a volume charge distribution the volume charge density ρv can be defined as the charge per unit volume having the units of C/m3. The small amount of charge ∆Q is ∆Q = ρv ∆v (16) i.e, ρv = lim ΔQ (17) Δv→0 ΔV The total charge with in some finite volume is obtained by integrating throught that volume. i.e, Q = ∫ ΔQ = ∫ ρv ΔV vol (18) vol The incremental contribution to the electric field intensity at ‘r’ produced by an incremental charge ∆Q at r1 (shown in figure 1.6) Figure 1.6 ΔE(r) = ΔQ r − r′ ρv ΔV r − r′ = 4πε0 |r − r ′ |2 |r − r ′ | 4πε0 |r − r ′ |2 |r − r ′ | (19) If we sum the contributions of all the volume charges in a given region and let the volume element ∆v approaches zero as the number of these elements become infinite , the numerator becomes an integral. i.e, ρv (r′)dv′ r − r′ ′ 2 ′ vol 4πε0 |r − r | |r − r | E(r) = ∫ Mr.JAGADEESH M, ASST .
