Irregularly Shaped Conductors in Electrostatic Equilibrium (4:29)
Learn about conductors in electrostatic equilibrium! Today, we'll go over the last of the four key points to remember. See how the local surface charge density is at its maximum where the radius of curvature is at its minimum. Learn how the surfaces of two conducting spheres connected by conducting wire have the same the electric potential. See how variables cancel out to prove that where the radius of curvature is smaller, there's a larger surface charge density.
