An electric discharge strikes the road in front of you.
Many people think that cars are safe because of the force that one charged object exerts on another charged rubber tires.
We will learn in this chapter object.
We will learn why you are the energy of the system.
The electric field model found that charged objects can exert force on each other without being in direct contact.
The first interaction we had with objects was this one.
They repel each other.
There are two answers to this question.
Charles Coulomb supported the model for the electro static interaction.
Both interactions happen in this model.
If you move one of the two interacting charges, the other will sense that and respond accordingly.
The second model for electric interactions involved an agent that acted as a middleman between the charges.
The electric field due to object 1 exerts a force on object 2.
The field model can be applied to the interaction.
You can use an analogy to see the idea of a field.
Imagine a very large horizontal elastic sheet with a grid on it.
The rep resents the field.
Imagine a huge object resting on the sheet.
The Sun causes the sheet to bend more close to the Sun than away from it.
The field is due to the Sun.
Suppose a comet passes by the Sun.
The comet's path is disturbed by the Sun's field when the comet is farther away and more so when it is closer.
There is a force on Earth.
The electric field acts as a conduit between charged objects, without direct contact with each other.
We can use the elastic sheet analogy to make a prediction based on the field model.
It takes time for the change in the field to reach object 2 when you move one of the two interacting charges.
Any change in the position of object 1 leads to a change in the force on object 2.
We will return to this question when we study the waves.
Let's look at the force that one object exerts on another.
The region near Earth is dominated by Earth's contribu tion to the field.
At the same location near Earth, Earth exerts a gravitational one at a time.
The three test objects are placed at the same location.
Consider the force that Earth exerts on each object.
The forces are directed towards the center of Earth.
The magnitudes of the forces are proportional to the mass of the test objects.
Consider the objects to be close to Earth's surface.
Since this value does not depend on the mass of any test object, we think it might be a mathematical description of the strength of Earth's gravity at a particular location.
Since the force of gravity has direc tion, we say that it points directly toward the center of Earth.
This quantity free-fall acceleration is now called quantity free-fall acceleration.
Let's use the same approach to make a physical quantity for the strength of the electric field.
Two metal spheres are on a stand with a foil ball as a test charge.
There are different places between the spheres.
It is zero in the middle of the left and right spheres when hanging near the right sphere.
The foil ball hangs the spheres at the exact middle between them.
The foil ball went between the spheres.
On either side of the middle, the nearer sphere caused a greater repulsion than the farther sphere.

The plane of the plate of glass is infinitely large in both directions.
To the right of the plate, choose a position of interest.
This happens for every pair of plate charge segments.
The field lines need to be parallel to the field at every position.
The first type of problem can be solved with a strategy.
Imagine placing a positively charged test object qT at that point.
We can combine our knowledge of electric field with our knowledge ofNewton's laws to solve problems.

If needed, 2 is the system.
Contribute to the solution.
Check the direction, magnitude, and value of 0.20 m units to see if the result makes sense in limiting cases.
The units for the stretch distance should be meters.
Use limiting cases to check.
The distance that the spring stretches should be re duce if the electric force and the gravitational force are eliminated.
The spring is compressed by 0.12 m.
A tiny bal of black ink of mass 1.1 is inside an inkjet printer.
The plates are used to get the ink bal to land on a piece of paper.
Assume that the ink ball is a charged ink point-like object and that the plates produce a uniform bal as the system.
A force diagram for the ball is shown in the figure first to determine the ball's speed.
We can use a bigger electric field.
We are studying electric fields using a force approach.
An energy ap proach allows us to focus on the initial and final stages of a process without knowing what happened in between.
J/C and V are the units of electric potential.
This equation can be used to determine the electric potential of the heart dipole in Quantitative Exercise 15.6 and the sodium ion in the tissue near it.
If we know the potential difference between points A and B, we can predict the direction of the charged object.
An object falling to lower elevation in Earth's gravitational field is similar to an object speeding from higher electric potential to lower potential.
A negatively charged particle tends to accelerate from lower potential to higher potential.
Consider the next example.

A car might be the hollow conducting object we just described.
Dielectric materials are attracted to both positively and negatively charged objects.
The field exerts a force on the atom's positive nucleus in the direction of the field.
There is a force in the opposite direction on the electrons.
The positive center of the atom becomes an electric dipole.
The system is familiar to us as an electric dipole.
The field tends to orient the dipoles.
The dipoles are not oriented in a straight line.

The function of water is to make compounds available for use.
The nervous system uses sodium ion to transmit information.
The blood is made up of mostly water with the addition of solid salt.
An electron is transferred from a sodium atom to a chlorine atom because the chlorine atom is more attractive to electrons.
The electric force that chlorine and sodium exert on each other holds the salt crystal together.
The distance between the two ion is the same size as a molecule.
The energy is negative because of the charges of the ion.
Adding 10-18 J to the system is necessary to separate the ion.
Positive energy is created by the random thermal motion of atoms, molecule, and ion.
The positive energy of the individual ion is much more than the negative energy of the neg ative electric potential.
When salt is in the air, the total energy of the system is negative.
There are two changes when salt is placed in water or blood.
In water, there are many more interactions between molecule than there are in air.
Some of the collisions might break an ion from the crystal.
A few molecules will have enough energy to knock an ion from the crystal during a col ision.
The dielectric effect of the blood makes it less attractive for ion to become separated from the crystal.
The water molecule has a con motion.

A battery is being charged.
We have learned how to use conductors in electric fields.
The potential energy is stored in the form of elec Dielectric material.
The system's electric potential energy increases when objects are separated.
Capacitors are used to store electric potential energy.
One usually connects its plates to the battery's terminal.
The positive battery terminal is connected by a wire to a plate.
The charge trans battery fer continues until the Capacitor plate, conducting wire, and battery terminal on each side are at the same potential.
The Capacitor is fully charged.
The charges should be distributed evenly on the plates if we consider them large flat conductors.
When the plates are close to each other, the fields from each plate overlap.
Plates cancel if we use a pro the and portionality constant.
It might seem like that is the case.
When the charge on the plates is changed, the capaci tor's capacitance doesn't change.
The operational definition of capacitance is this ratio.
Two Capacitors with different surface areas are connected to the same source.
The material between the plates affects the surface area and distance between them.
The material between the plates becomes polarized by the electric field between them.

The thickness of the paral el plate capacitor would be re-tanced if we doubled the membrane.
The same charge separation is maintained by double the potential difference between the membranes and cell.
The energy is stored in jects that have been separated from each other.
We can't manually grab electrons and move them from one plate to another.
This work is usually done by a battery.
The more difficult it is to move from one plate to the other, the higher the charge.
The electric potential energy of the system increases when the external object is moving the charge.
The electric potential energy increase can be calculated.
The above expression can be written in three different ways.
The first ex- can be used once per second.
The electric field in the region between the plates is what distinguishes a charged and un charged Capacitor.
The electric field is believed to possess this energy.
It takes more energy to charge a larger capacitor that has the same electric field between the plates.
The electric potential energy is quantized by the energy density.
It is possible to use similar or identical symbols for different quantities.
We used numbers.
The expression for energy density can be applied to any electric field.
A paral el plateCapacitor has two plates that produce their own electric field.
There are four chambers in the human heart.
For example, the lower right chamber pumps blood through the lungs, where carbon dioxide is exchanged for oxygen, and the lower left chamber pumps blood into the aorta for a new trip around the circulatory system to provide oxygen for the body.
An electric charge separation occurs when muscle cells in the heart con tract are being pumped.
Many left ventricle muscle cells contract when the left ventricle pumps blood into the aorta.
The amount of blood received from multiple contracting muscle cells is larger when the circulatory left atrium pumps blood into the left ventricle.
