Dipole in uniform electric field:
Net force on a dipole in a uniform electric field is zero.
Torque , torque is maximum when the dipole is perpendicular to the field and minimum when the dipole is parallel or antiparallel to the field.
Dipole in non-uniform electric field:
The net force depends on
Orientation of the dipole, dipole moment of the dipole and how rapidly the field varies.
The product of magnitude of electric field and surface area A perpendicular to the field is called electric flux . depends on both field pattern and surface. The net flux is directly proportional to the net number of lines leaving the surface.
Electric flux through a closed surface S is given by , where q is the charge enclosed by surface S.
The net field is due to all charges present inside and outside the Gaussian surface. No net flux is contributed by the charges present outside the Gaussian surface because the number of E-lines coming into the surface is equal to the number of E-lines going out of the surface.
Electric field due to a charged isolated plate:
The electric field due to a charged isolated plate is twice the field due to a plane sheet of charge . The electric field due to an infinitely charged plate does not depend on the distance from the plate.
The potential at a point P is given by , which is equal to the external work done per unit positive charge in shifting slowly from infinity to this point.
In the direction of electric field, the potential always decreases.
Potential is a scalar quantity. Its SI unit is volt.
An equipotential surface is a surface with constant value of potential at all points on the surface. The equipotential surface of a single point charge are concentric spherical surfaces centred at the charge. For uniform electric field, equipotential surfaces are planes normal to the plane of the electric field.
Potential energy of a system of charges:
For two charges,
For three charges,
For discreet system of charges,
General formula for calculating potential energy: U = qV, where V is the potential at a point of some continuous body (ring, disc, solid sphere etc.).
Finding electric field from electric potential:
Earthing of a conductor:
On earthing a conductor, the charge on the conductor varies and the potential of the conductor becomes zero.
Charge distribution on a conductor surface:
The charge distribution takes place on the surface of the conductor in such a way that the product of charge density and the radius of curvature r at any point on the conductor is constant, i.e.
By learning in meritnation I got B2, but by learning topper learning I got A1... so which is the best. This is awesome to learn and easy to study science. At 1st term I got B2 but at 2nd term I got A1.

Excellent Faculty! I have been studying from topperlearning.com since Class IX and have consistently scored above 90% in my these 4 years.I studied throughout nights to achieve my goal.Moreover, becoming Rank 1 on topperlearning boosted my confidence to high skies.Thank you topperlearning, without you I would not have been able to score 91.2% in Class XII Boards(2015) and CGPA 9.8 in my Class X Boards(2013). Hope that topperlearning will continue to help students throughout India, creating a brighter future for them. Regards, Vivek Saahil

I like topper learning because I can understand the level I have prepared for my subject and study better.

Topperlearning is really a very good helping tool. Every time I had doubts related to any concept in PCM I posted it and immediately my problem was solved. It also helped me in scoring good ranks in competitive exams too. The topper faculty is very good. The teachers explained each and every concept in depth. My favourite teacher is Physics teacher

We all know that audio-visual medium is a better way of explaining and educating the students. It not only makes learning fun but also gives the message more clearly and precisely. Topper is a very good amalgamation of good teaching and good learning methods.
