Electrostatic Fields

Electrostatic fields are produced by charges at rest.

The main objective of this chapter is to provide detailed concepts of electrostatics. They include:

  • applications of electrostatics
  • charge distributions
  • Coulomb’s law, applications and limitations
  • Gauss’s law, applications and limitation
  • potential functions
  • Poisson’s and Laplace’s equations
  • conductors, dielectrics and capacitors
  • energy stored in electrostatic fields and capacitors
  • fields in dielectrics and boundary conditions
  • solved problems, points/formulae to remember, objective and multiple choice questions and exercise problems.
