Introduction

## • The electromagnetic force between charged

particles is one of the fundamental forces of
nature
• In this chapter, we will discuss about Coulomb’s
law, which is one of fundamental law governing the
force between any two charged particles
• Next, we introduce the concept of an electric
field associated with a charge distribution and
describe its effect on other charge particles

Introduction

## • How to use Coulomb’s law to calculate the electric

field for a given charge distribution
• Motion of the charged particle in a uniform
electric field

Section 1: Properties of Electric
Charge
• A number of simple experiments demonstrate the
existence of electric forces and charges. For
example, after running a comb through your hair
on a dry day, you will ﬁnd that the comb attracts
bits of paper. The attractive force is often strong
enough to suspend the paper. The same effect
occurs when materials such as glass or rubber are
rubbed with silk or fur.

Section 1: Properties of Electric
Charge
• In a series of simple experiments, it is found that
there are two kinds of electric charges, which
were given the names positive and negative by
Benjamin Franklin (1706 – 1790).
