Why does a body get positively charged when it moves very fast?

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


Dear Karthik,

A body when moves very fast tend to lose some of there electrons from its outer surface due to collisions and abrasive propoerties of air particles. Many atoms as a whole get lost for sure but the loss of electrons if larger than protons.

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can. If you find any question
Difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you the answer and detailed solution very quickly. We
are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation.

All the best Karthik !!!

Given a vector A = 2i + 3j and a vector B = i + j.The component of the vector A along B is(a) 1/(2)½ (i + j) (b) 3/(2)½ (i + j)(c) 5/(2)½ (i + j)(d) 7/(2)½ (i + j)
The component of the vector A along B geometrically is: Bcos(theta) = (A.B/|B|).(Bcap) = 5/(2)½ (i + j) option is correct.
