Three pithballs are suspended from thin threads. Various objects are then rubbed against other objects (nylon against silk, glass against polyester, etc.) and each of the pithballs is charged by touching them with one of these objects. It is found that pithballs 1 and 2 repel each other and that pithballs 2 and 3 repel each other. From this we can conclude that 1)1 and 3 carry charges of opposite sign. 2)1 and 3 carry charges of equal sign. 3)all three carry the charges of the same sign. 4)one of the objects carries no charge. 5)we need to do more experiments to determine the sign of the charges.
A metallic object can be charged without ever touching it with a charged rod. An insulator can become polarized when placed near a charged object, causing it to be attracted to the object.
Two uniformly charged spheres are firmly fastened to, and electrically insulated from, frictionless pucks on an air table. The charge on sphere 2 is three times the charge on sphere 1. Which force diagram correctly shows the magnitude and direction of the electrostatic forces: A. C. B. D. E. none of the above
Which of the following is not true? The electric force 1)decreases with the inverse of the square of the distance between two charged particles. 2)between an electron and a proton is much stronger than the gravitational force between them. 3)between two protons separated by a distance d is larger than that between two electrons separated by the same distance d. 4)may be either attractive or repulsive.
