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 for a 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 another article, we have discussed the Linear charge density and surface charge density of different conductors. In this … Read more

Formula for Surface Charge density | definition, unit

What is the charge density? The electric charge density refers to the amount of electric charge per unit dimension. Electric charges can be distributed along the length, over the surface and in the volume of a conductor. In linear distribution, the distribution of charge takes place along the length of the conductor (Check Linear charge … Read more

Definition and Formula for Electric charge | Unit

Electric charge is the basic property of substances. To understand the properties and other facts of an electric charge some branches of Physics like Electromagnetic field, current electricity are introduced. But, do you know that all substances are neutral in nature? Charges are created artificially or by natural phenomena. In the article “definition and formula … Read more

Properties of electric charge class 12 physics
