Gauss' Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Electromagnetics

Gauss' Law (Maxwell's first equation) relates to how a electric field acts around electric charges.

formula

\( \bigtriangledown \cdot D = \rho_v \)

Where:

\(\bigtriangledown \cdot\) = divergence operator

\(D\) = electric displacement

\(\rho\) = electric charge density
