Conductors in Electrostatic Equilibrium (13:11)
Review for AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism
AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism review of Conductors in Electrostatic Equilibrium including: defining conductors which are in electrostatic equilibrium, deriving the electric field inside the conductors, electrostatic shielding, showing that all excess charges are on the surface(s), deriving the electric field just outside the surface(s), showing the surfaces are equipotential surfaces, deriving the relationship between surface charge density and radius of curvature for irregular shapes.
