Calculus-based relationships in electrostatics

  1. Jun 10, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I know for example that a=dv/dt and v=dx/dt. I was wondering whether there are similar relationships for things in electrostatics. I have to internalize all of these formulas (for electrostatics), so I was hoping to understand them in a calculus-based sense in order to avoid rote memorization. I don't know a lot about physics, but I have had a lot of math.


    2. Relevant equations

    U=qv

    V=W/q

    E=F/q


    3. The attempt at a solution

    W=integral(Force)


    If someone could just steer me in the right direction, it would be a big help!

    Thanks

    There would be a library full of calculus based relations in Electrostats!. If you can specify what you are looking we would be ready to help as we cannot write a book here in posts!
