K: Electrostatics (Electric Force and Electric Field)

It is expected that students will apply Coulomb's law to situations involving point charges and
demonstrate an understanding of electric fields and their effects on charged objects.

It is expected that students will:

K1.  state Coulomb's law
K2.  solve problems using Coulomb's law for two point charges, involving:

K3.  calculate the net electric force on a point charge due to two other point charges
K4.  define electric field
K5.  calculate the net electric field at any point on a line containing two point charges
K6.  describe the electric field lines for simple charge distributions
K7.  describe situations that produce uniform or non-uniform electric fields
K8.  solve problems for a charge in an electric field, involving:
