Electric charge Forces between charged objects Chapter 20 Electric Forces and Fields Topics: Sample question: In electrophoresis, what force causes DNA fragments to migrate through the gel? How can an investigator adjust the migration rate? Slide 20-1

Need concept of a field Field is something that has a value at every point in space Field is the influence a mass or charge has at every point on the space around it Slide 20-3

If a charged plastic rod is brought near an uncharged metal rod on an insulating stand, an uncharged metal ball near the other end of the metal rod is attracted to this end of the rod. Explain the motions of charges that give rise to this force. Follow-up: Describe a procedure by which you could give two identical metal spheres exactly equal charges. Slide 20-14 Examples

As they approach the hive entrance, they are 1.0 cm apart. What is the magnitude of the repulsive force between the two bees? How does this force compare with their weight? Slide 20-29
