Physics 201- Introduction to Electricity & Magnetism
September 29- Applying Gauss' Law






  Today we'll look at how to use Gauss' Law to calculate electric fields for special charge distributions.  

As you begin reading the next chapter, try not to get overwhelmed with the number of equations that are thrown at you right off the bat.  As always, focus on the concepts and what the equations physically describe.  Also, you might want to review the material in chapter 7 first.

There will be a worksheet due Monday.
