Similarities and differences in magnetic and electric field (Dilpreet posted this question)
Both electric and magnetic field are conservative forcesBoth obey inverse square law
Both are non contact forces (Forces can be exert…… Read More What are the similarities and differences in magnetic and electric field?
We know that photon has no charge. Then where from it gets electric and magnetic field in light?
Malik Sajad asks
Electric and magnetic fields are not produced by the photon; it is massless too.
But, photon is created by time varying electric a…… Read More Electricfield, Magnetic Field and Photon
TWIN PARADOX is a paradoxical situation coming in while explaining the theory of relativity. “Time dilation” is one of the important consequences of relativity. It says that if a body is moving with relativistic speeds, time will dialate …… Read More What is twin paradox?
How can an alternating current change its direction while moving in a wire or any conductor? Why direct currents aren’t used in Home circuits?
Alternating current is produced by rotating a coil in a strong magnetic field (or …… Read More Why direct currents aren’t used in Home circuits?
