## Related Terms

### POLARIZABILITY

The electric dipole moment induced in a system, such as an atom or molecule, by an electric field of unit strength.

### HELMHOLTZ

A unit of dipole moment per unit area, equal to 1 Debye unit per square angstrom, or approximately 3.335 10 10 coulomb per meter.

### ELECTRIC POTENTIAL

The work which must be done against electric forces to bring a unit charge from a reference point to the point in question; the reference point is located at an infinite distance, or, for practical purposes, at the surface of the earth or some other large conductor. Also known as electrostatic potential; potential. Abbreviated V.

### INDUCED DIPOLE

An electric dipole produced by application of an electric field.

### ELECTRIC-FIELD VECTOR

The force on a stationary positive charge per unit charge at a point in an electric field. Designated E. Also known as electric-field intensity; electric-field strength; electric vector.

### ELECTROSTATIC UNITS

A centimeter-gramsecond system of electric and magnetic units in which the unit of charge is that charge which exerts a force of 1 dyne on another unit charge when separated from it by a distance of 1 centimeter in vacuum; other units are derived from this definition by assigning unit coefficients in equations relating electric and magnetic quantities. Abbreviated esu.

### CURRENT DENSITY

The current per unit cross-sectional area of a conductor; a specialization of the physics definition. Also known as electric current density.

### VOLT

A derived unit of electric potential in the International System of Units, it is the difference of electric potential between two points of a conducting wire carrying a constant current of 1 ampere, when the power dissipated between these points is equal to 1 watt.

### VOLT PER METER

The derived unit of electric field strength in the International System of Units.

### AMPERE

The base unit of electric current in the International System of Units; it is that constant current which, if maintained in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length, of negligible circular cross section
