Fundamentals of Physics III

Yale , Prof.Ramamurti Shankar

Gauss's Law and Application to Conductors and Insulators


Lecture Description

Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201)Lecture begins with a recap of Gauss's Law, its derivation, its limitation and its applications in deriving the electric field of several symmetric geometries—like the infinitely long wire. The electrical properties of conductors and insulators are discussed. Multiple integrals are briefly reviewed.Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: course was recorded in Spring 2010.
