E & M UNIT 01 - Electric Charge

Charge and Coulomb’s Law
A) Students should understand the concept of electric charge, so they can:

(1) Describe the types of charge and the attraction and repulsion of charges.

(2) Describe polarization and induced charges.

B) Students should understand Coulomb’s Law and the principle of superposition, so they can:

(1) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the force on a positive or negative charge due to other specified point charges.

(2) Analyze the motion of a particle of specified charge and mass under the influence of an electrostatic force.
