Our next unit is Electricity & Magnetism. We will begin with static electricity - or electrostatics.
First we will build a conceptual understanding of electric charges and how they behave.
Please read Chapter 32 in the Conceptual Physics (Hewitt) textbook. I did not assign any of the "Concept Check" questions at the end of the chapter, those questions are just checking to make sure that you know what you have read. I suggest you use them to check your own understanding of the reading.
The questions assigned for Problem set 21 are questions 23, 24,28,31,32,36,37,38 on pages 660-661. They require an understanding of the material in the chapter so start with the reading....don't go straight to the questions!
Problem Set 21 is due on Tuesday Feb 14.
