Linear charge density – formula, calculation | Line charge

A continuously charged conductor can have three types of distribution of electric charges given to it. We already have discussed surface charge density and volume charge density in other two articles. The third one is the Line charge distribution. Now, what is linear charge density? How do you calculate it? In this article, we are … Read more

Volume charge density formula of sphere, cylinder

A three dimensional conductor can have three types of charge distributions. These are Line charge distribution, surface charge distribution and volume charge distribution. Obviously, there will be three types of charge densities for these three distributions. In other two articles, we have discussed the Linear charge density and surface charge density of different conductors. In … Read more

Surface Charge density – formula, definition, units

Electric charges can be distributed along the length, over the surface and in the volume of a conductor. The density of electric charge refers to the amount of charge per unit dimension. There are three types of charge densities for the three types of distributions of charge. The Linear charge density and Volume charge density … Read more
