Question
1. [153709] Can there be an electric field at a point where there is no charge?
Can a charge experience a force due to its own field? Please write a one or two
sentence answer
for each question.
Answer:
Yes, a charge creates an electric field at distances from the charge. Thus the field
extends beyond the position of the charge itself to points where there is no
charge present.
No, a charge cannot experience force due to its own field because Coulomb’s law
requires two charges to create equal and opposite repulsive or attractive electric
force.
Question
2. [153707] An insulator is a material that...
(a) three are correct
(b) is not penetrated by electric fields
(c) none of these
(d) cannot carry an electric charge
(e) cannot feel an electrical force
Answer:
(c) None of these
Although it is more easily done with conductors, electrons can be added and
removed from insulators to give them electric charge.
Even neutral insulators can feel an electric force due to polarization of the
individual molecules.
Question
3. [153708] Which of the following is true of a perfect conductor ?
(a) There can be no electric charge on the surface.
(b) There cannot be an electric field inside.
(c) There cannot be any excess electric charge inside.
(d) There cannot be any electric charges inside.
(e) Two of the choices are correct
Answer:
(e) Two of the choices are correct
