GAUSS’S LAW for electricity and magnetism derivation examples and applications

What is Gauss’s law?                                        Gauss’s law states that: “The total electric flux through any closed surface  is equal to 1/ε0 times the total charge enclosed by the surface.” It is given by Karl Friedrich  Gauss ,named after him gave a relationship between ...

Electric and magnetic flux density

What is Electric Flux? “Total number of field lines passing through a certain element of area is called flux”. It may also be defined as “The scalar product of electric field intensity E and vector area  A“.It is denoted by Greek letter Φ. Φ=E.A Φ=EAcosθ Where θ is the angle between E and A.Electric flux is a scalar quantity.Its SI unit Nm²/c.Below figure ...

What is an Electric Charge?

What is an Electric Charge? Electric charge is defined as:”An electrical property of matter that exists because of an access or a deficiency of electrons.” If you walk across a carpet in dry weather,you can draw a spark by touching a metal door knob.On a grander scale,lightning is familiar to everyone.Such phenomena suggest the vast amount of electric charge that ...

Coulomb’s Law definition examples and solutions

What is Coulomb’s law? “Coulomb’s law states that  force of attraction or repulsion between two electric charges is directly proportional to their magnitudes and inversely proportional  to the square of distance between them”.It is mathematically explained as: Charles Agustin Coulomb (1736-1806) measured electrical attractions and repulsions  quantitatively and deduced the law that governs them.His apparatus,shown in fig. This figure resembles ...

Types of Mechanics

What is mechanics ? The branch of science that deals with the study of motion of body,its causes and effects. The importance of mechanics It is the oldest of the physical sciences,is the study of the motion of objects.The calculation of the path of a baseball or of a space probe sent to Mars is among its problems,as is the ...
