## Definition of capacitor

Article about the Definition of capacitor The definition of capacitor is a device that stores electrical charge and electrical potential energy. The simple capacitor consists of two-conductor plates or sheets that are placed close together but do not touch each other and are separated by an insulator or a vacuum. Conductors are materials that can …

## Electric potential

Definition of the electric potential Electric potential is defined as the electric potential energy per unit charge. Suppose that when it is at point a, the charge q has the electric potential energy equal to EPa, then the electric potential at point a is formulated as follows: V = electric potential, EP = electric potential …

## Electric potential energy

Article about the Electric potential energy Before studying this topic, first understand work, the conservative forces, the relationship between the conservative forces with potential energy, the electric forces and the electric field. Electric force is the conservative forces In addition to the gravitational force and spring force, other example of the conservative force is the …

## Determining the electric field using Gauss law

Article about Determining the electric field using Gauss law Electric field by a single point charge To calculate the electric field produced by a single positive charge, the first step is to select the spherical Gauss surface with radius r where the center of the sphere is at the single charge. The surface area of the …

## Gauss law

Article about Gauss law On the topic of Coulomb’s law, the force between electric charges has been studied. In a review of the electric field, another form of Coulomb’s law has been discussed which is expressed by the equation F = q E, where F is the electric force, q is the electric charge and …

## Electric flux

Definition of the electric flux On the topic of the electric field, has been discussed the definition and equation of the electric field which can be used to calculate the electric field strength produced by an electric charge, some electric charge or by an electric charge distribution. The calculation of the electric field strength produced …

## Electric field

Article about the Electric field On the subject of the electric charge, was learned that like charges repel each other while unlike charges attract each other. If a positively charged object is brought close to a negatively charged object, the two objects pull together so that they move toward each other. Conversely, if a positively …

## Coulombs law

Article about Coulombs law In the article about the electric charge and the types of electric charges explained that like charges repel each other while unlike charges attract each other. In other words, positively charged objects attract negatively charged objects, positively charged objects repel positively charged objects, and negatively charged objects repel negatively charged objects. …

## The law of conservation of electric charges

Article about The law of conservation of electric charges Every material in the universe is composed of atoms. Atoms are composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Proton is positive electrically charged; electron is negative electrically charged, neutrons are not electrically charged. Inside the atom, there are some electrons, protons, and neutrons. If the number of …

## Types of electric charges

Article about the Types of electric charge Why does plastic repels plastic but attract glass? If you rub a plastic on dry hair and bring the plastic to the small pieces of paper, the plastic pulls the pieces of paper. Why can plastic also pull pieces of paper that were not rubbed with other objects? …
