## FAQs on Continuous Charge Distribution Video Lecture - Physics for JAMB

 1. What is a continuous charge distribution?
Ans. A continuous charge distribution refers to a system where charge is spread out continuously along a line, surface, or volume, rather than being concentrated at specific points.
 2. How is the charge density calculated for a continuous charge distribution?
Ans. The charge density for a continuous charge distribution is calculated by dividing the total charge by the length, area, or volume over which the charge is spread.
 3. What is the difference between linear, surface, and volume charge distributions?
Ans. Linear charge distribution refers to charge spread out along a line, surface charge distribution refers to charge spread out over a surface, and volume charge distribution refers to charge spread out within a volume.
 4. How do you calculate the electric field due to a continuous charge distribution?
Ans. The electric field due to a continuous charge distribution is calculated by integrating the electric field contribution from each infinitesimal element of charge along the line, surface, or volume.
 5. Can a continuous charge distribution have varying charge densities?
Ans. Yes, a continuous charge distribution can have varying charge densities, where the charge density may change along the line, surface, or volume over which the charge is distributed.
