Electrostatics
 I. Charge and Coulomb’s Law
1. You should understand the concept of electric charge, so you can:

a) Describe the types of charge and the attraction and repulsion of charges.
b) Describe polarization and induced charges.

2. You should understand Coulomb’s Law and the principle of superposition, so you can:
a) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the force on a positive or negative charge due to other specified point charges.
b) Analyze the motion of a particle of specified charge and mass under the influence of an electrostatic force.

II. Electric field
1. You should understand the concept of electric field, so you can:
a) Define it in terms of the force on a test charge.
b) Describe and calculate the electric field of a single point charge.
c) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the electric field produced by two or more point charges.
d) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the force on a positive or negative charge placed in a specified field.
e) Interpret an electric field diagram.
f) Analyze the motion of a particle of specified charge and mass in a uniform electric field.
