Solving Problems with Vectors and Coulomb's Law

Gauss's Law
 Gauss's law can be used to derive Coulomb's law, and vice versa.
 Note that since Coulomb's law only applies to stationary charges, there is no reason to expect Gauss's law to hold for moving charges based on this derivation alone.
 In fact, Gauss's law does hold for moving charges, and in this respect Gauss's law is more general than Coulomb's law.
 Gauss's law has a close mathematical similarity with a number of laws in other areas of physics, such as Gauss's law for magnetism and Gauss's law for gravity.
 In fact, any "inversesquare law" can be formulated in a way similar to Gauss's law: For example, Gauss's law itself is essentially equivalent to the inversesquare Coulomb's law, and Gauss's law for gravity is essentially equivalent to the inversesquare Newton's law of gravity.

Spherical Distribution of Charge

Superposition of Forces
 The scalar form of Coulomb's Law relates the magnitude and sign of the electrostatic force F, acting simultaneously on two point charges q1 and q2:
 The principle of linear superposition allows the extension of Coulomb's law to include any number of point charges—in order to derive the force on any one point charge by a vector addition of these individual forces acting alone on that point charge.

Properties of Electric Charges
 Its SI unit is known as the Coulomb (C), which represents 6.242×1018e, where e is the charge of a proton.
 The formula for gravitational force has exactly the same form as Coulomb's Law, but relates the product of two masses (rather than the charges) and uses a different constant.
 The forces (F1 and F2) sum to produce the total force, which is calculated by Coulomb's Law and is proportional to the product of the charges q1 and q2, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance (r21) between them.

Introduction to Simple Harmonic Motion
 is the electric field of the ith point charge (Coulomb's law).
 The restoring force is the component of the gravitational force acting perpendicular to the wire supporting the mass.This is $mgsin(\theta)$ .Assuming the wire support is rigid, the acceleration of the mass is in the $\theta$ direction, so $ma=m\ell\ddot\theta$ and we have from Newton's second law: $\ddot{\theta} + \frac{g}{\ell} \sin(\theta) = 0$ .This is a nonlinear equation except for small $\theta$ , in which case $\theta$ .

The Junction Rule
 Kirchhoff's junction rule, also known as Kirchhoff's current law (KCL), Kirchoff's first law, Kirchhoff's point rule, and Kirchhoff's nodal rule, is an application of the principle of conservation of electric charge.
 This law is founded on the conservation of charge (measured in coulombs), which is the product of current (amperes) and time (seconds).
 Practically, this is always true so long as the law is applied for a specific point.
 This flow would be a current, thus violating Kirchhoff's junction law.
 Kirchhoff's Junction Law illustrated as currents flowing into and out of a junction.
