## Why direct currents aren’t used in Home circuits?

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 by rotating magnet around the coil)
So, during every half rotation the direction of emf (voltage) induced in the […] ## Jaz posted this question from electrostatics

“I’ve tried so many times, but I’m unable to arrive at the correct equation; See attachment for question” Question   Jaz posted this question E=k(2λ/r) due to positive wire E’=k(2λ/(D-r)) due to negative wire The resultant will be the sum of these as both are in the same direction At the mid point both distances are r = […]

The question was posted by Raj Kumar.

The satellite has a velocity. To revolve around, the direction of velocity must change. In the absence of a force it can move only in a straight line. It is the gravitational force which helps the satellite top change direction and revolve around the earth.

In other words, for a satellite to revolve in a circular path, a centripetal force is required. This centripetal force is provided by the force of gravitation only.
