Electrostatic Potential And Capacitance
Electrostatic Potential and Capacitance comes under the unit Electrostatics which accounts for 15 marks in board exams. This chapter covers the following: Electrostatic Potential, Potential Due to a Point Charge, Potential Due to an Electric Dipole, Potential Due to a System of Charges, Equipotential Surfaces, Potential Energy of a System of Charges, Potential Energy in an External Field, Electrostatics of Conductors, Dielectrics and Polarization, Capacitors and Capacitance, the Parallel Plate Capacitor, Effect of Dielectric on Capacitance, Combination of Capacitors, Energy Stored in a Capacitor, and Van De Graaff Generator. The entire chapter contains many theories and each theory has exercises which help the student understand each topic better. This chapter is not only useful for board exams but also for various competitive exams.
