Gauss’s Law and the Electric Potential

  • Nathan Ida


The fundamentals of electrostatics were given in Chapter 3 as the definition of force through Coulomb’s law and of the electric field intensity. In this chapter, we address two issues: One is to formalize some of the results obtained in the previous chapter and the second is to expand on the ideas of electric field intensity, electric flux density, and the relation between the electric field and material properties.
