Electrostatic charge distributions – types and facts

All substances are neutral by nature. They can be charged artificially or by some natural phenomena like lightning. In the first article on electrostatics, We learned about electric charges and their production. We became to know that the electric charges do not have the same distribution in differently shaped bodies. Because all substances don’t have … 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
