Two unlike charges separated by a distance of 1m attract each other with a force 0.108N. If the charges are in the ratio 1:3, the weak charge is?A. 2 micro C ,B. 4 micro C, C. 6 micro C, D. 5 microC

Answers : (4)


Here q1:q2=1:3,


we know F=k(q1q2)/(r2)

where k=9x109N-m2/C2

thus 0.108=9x109(3(q2)2)/12


therefore the weak charge is 2micro C.

let charges be x,3x;


f=3x*x*9*10^9          =>x= 2 micro

a charge is placed in the middle of a face of a cube. Find the flux through each face.
The total flux through any closed surface is zero.. As per Gauss law, total flux is q/E and for a cube there are 6 faces and hence from each face we can divide flux by 6. Thanks &...

why not coefficient of the apparent expansion of the liquid =coefficient of the real expansion of the liquid +coefficient of the container expansion.please suggest?
When we heat a liquid there is expansion both in the liquid and the vessel too. But the expansion of the vessel is much smaller than the liquid. When we take the expansion of vessel into...

Why a charge particle moves horizontally without deflection near the earths surface..?
For a charged particle to pass through with no deflection,the net force acting on it must be zero.Thus magnetic and electric forces must be equal and opposite in direction so, v = E/B...
