## REVIEW SUMMARY Gauss Law

REVIEW SUMMARY Gauss Law Gauss’ Law Gauss’ law and Coulomb’s law although expressed in different forms are equivalent ways of describing the relation between charge and electric field in static situations Gauss’ law is in which is the net charge inside an imaginary closed surface (a Gaussian surface) and  is the net Hux of the electric field through the surface …

Additional Problem The chocolate crush mystery. Explosions ignited electrostatics discharges (sparks) constitute a serious danger in facilities handling grain or powder. Such an explosion occurred in chocolate crumb powder at a biscuit factory in the 1970s. At the factor workers usually emptied newly delivered sacks of the powder into a loading bin, from which it was blown th ‘ugh grounded …

## Problem Gauss Law

Problem Gauss Law  A spherically symmetrical but nonuniform volume distribution of charge produces an electric field of magnitude E = K,.4. directed radially outward from the center of the sphere Here r is the radial distance from that center and K is a constant What is the volume density p of the charge distribution.
