Students will be able to
- recognize that parallel lines of uniformly distributed electric charges, where charges on one line are the opposite sign of the charges on the other line, result in an approximately uniform electric field between the lines,
- recognize that the electric field magnitude of a uniform electric field is constant throughout the field,
- relate the magnitude of a uniform electric field, , to the absolute electric potential at a point in the field at a distance d from the positively charged region from which the field lines originate, using the equation ,
- recognize that the potential difference across the ends of a uniform electric field is the difference between the absolute electric potential at the end of the field at which the field lines originate and the end at which they terminate,
- quantitatively model the motion of charged particles within uniform electric fields.
