Question from Electrostatics

A charge ‘q’is placed at the centre of the line joining two equal charges Q.The system of 3 charges will be in equilibrium, if ‘q’is equal to; a)-Q/2 b)-Q/4 c) Q/2 d) Q/4   Asked Fayas Babu K   The answer is (b)  – Q / 4 For the three charges to be in equilibrium, the…… Continue reading Question from Electrostatics

Can the frictional electricity produced during landing of a plane be used for constructive purposes?

As we know that in aeroplane during landing the charged produced in it due to the friction with ground are earthed through its wheels; can this charge be stored with the help of a capacitor and used for useful purpose? Answer: I feel that this is a metter for research. If you feel otherwise and…… Continue reading Can the frictional electricity produced during landing of a plane be used for constructive purposes?

Calculating charge on a body with excess of electrons

How would I calculate the charge on a small sphere with an excess of 5.0 x 10 14 electrons? Asked Kaitlin Thomas Answer: We know that charge on an electron is (-) 1.6 x 10-19 C If the sphere has 5.0 x 10 14 electrons in excess then the body has a net negative charge…… Continue reading Calculating charge on a body with excess of electrons

How atoms are formed? – Neeraj Asks

Neeraj asks: ”We have read that atoms can neither been created nor been destroyed!I want to know from where atoms came in existence,if they can not been created,also atom contain electron and proton which are negatively and positively charged,i want to know from where these charge came?”
