A long string with a charge of λ per unit length passes through an imaginary cube of edge l. The maximum possible flux of electric field through the cube will be
Maximum length of string =
Maximum enclosed charge =
The correct answer is:
Force of attraction between the plate of a parallel plate capacitor is
Consider two concentric conducting spherical shell with inner and outer radii a, b, c and d as shown in the figure. Both the shell are given Q amount of positive charges. The electric field in different regions are
For r < a, applying Gauss’s law.
∴ q = 0
Also since shells are conducting
For b < r < c by Gauss’s law
For r > d, applying Gauss’s law, we get
Electric field in the region is given by Here, α is a constant of proper dimensions. The total flux passing through a cube bounded by the surfaces x = l , x = 2l, y = 0, y = l, z = 0, z = l.
Except the faces ABCD and EFGH, for all the faces as
So, flux through the cube
The correct answer is: αl3
A spherical condenser has inner and outer sphere of radii a and b respectively. The space between the two is filled with air. The difference between the capacities of two condensers formed when outer sphere is earthed and when inner sphere is earthed will be
Capacity of spherical condenser when outer sphere is earthed
Capacity of spherical condenser when inner sphere is earthed Difference in their capacity
The correct answer is:
A diagram of an irregularly shaped charged conductor is shown at the right figure. Four location along the surface are labeled A, B, C, D. Rank these locations in increasing order of the strength of their electric field beginning with the smallest electric field.
For conducting surface, electric field are strongest at the location where the curvature is the greatest. A projection (such as at point A) is the extreme case of high carvature. A flat section of a surface (such as point B) is on the opposite extreme with the no curvature. So, point B is listed first and point A is listed last. Since point D is on a section of the surface which curve more than point C. The field at point C is more than field at point B.
The correct answer is: B < C < D < A
