After completing this module students will be familiar with the definition of the electrostatic potential and will be able to calculate the potential difference between two points in space for various charge distributions. Students will be able to list the properties of conductors in static situations. They will be able to find the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor. Students will have been introduced to various electrostatic devices.
