The Law of Conservation of Energy is the single most useful law of physics. In this chapter we will

develop the insights needed to make use of energy conservation to understand the ideas associated

electrical phenomena.

Recall the definition of potential energy as the negativer of the work done by a conservative force,

Recall how this went with gravity, ∆Ug = − ∫ Fg • d s = − ∫ mg • ds = − m ∫ g • d s in general.

For a constant gravitational field, g, ∆Ug =-mgh.

Note that ∆U = U( ∞) − U(R) . It is customary to set U( ∞) ≡ 0 so we can say that the original

potential energy of the protons wasU(R) = +2.3x10 −18 J . These protons originally had a lot of

potential energy when close together and are quite happy to fly apart when given the chance.

The electric potential is defined as the potential energy per unit of charge.

Applying the Law of Conservation of Energy,

∆U + ∆K = 0 ⇒ ∆U = −∆K = −K f + Ki = −K f

⇒ K f = −∆U = +1.6x10−17 J

There is a more convenient unit for energy in problems like this.

Define 1 electron·volt = 1 eV ≡ 1.6x10 −19 J ⇒

∆U = (−1e)(+100V) = −100eV and Kf = −∆U = +100eV

Example 5: Find the energy required to assemble all the charges in example 4 assuming that there

is a charge Q at the position x.

From the definition of potential, ∆U ≡ q ∆V , we can find the potential energy needed to bring in

each charge to create this distribution. Choose the +q to be the first one. It can be moved into

position using no energy because there are no other charges around yet (∆V=0). Choose the -q

dq

The potential due to the point charge, dq, is dV = k r .

dq To find the potential due to the entire charge distribution we need to sum

r p over the dq's. That is, we need to integrate:

Example 6: Find the potential due to a ring of charge, Q, and radius, R, a distance, x, from the

center along the axis.

Example 7: Find the potential due to a spherical shell of radius, a, and charge, Q, a distance, z,

from the center of the shell.

Use the rings from example 6 as the dq's and sum

their potentials to find the potential due to the entire

sphere. By trigonometry, x = z − acos θ , so the Q a

potential, dV, due to the ring at an angle θ is, θ R z

Notice that the potential is constant inside the sphere which is consistent with the constant field we

expect. It falls off as the potential of a point charge outside.

To calculate the potential from the field we use ∆V = − ∫ E • d s .

To go the other way around we write, dV = − E • d s .
