Force between two identical charges placed at a distance of r in vacuum is F. Now a slab of dielectric constant 4 is inserted between these two charges. If the thickness of slab is r/2 then the net force on a charge will become. Options a= 3F/5, b=4F/9 c=F/4 d=none of the above

							As the dielectric constant increases the force between the two charges would decrease. Try to now solve the question.

The force between two point charges separated by distance ‘r’ when a dielectric of thickness ‘t’ is inserted between them is kq1q2/(r-t+tsqrt(K))^2. So the answer is 4F/9.

Dear student,
Please find the attached solution to your problem.
 
The electrostatic forces between two charges in a medium of di-electric constant k is
Here, kr2 can be taken as the effective depth square r’2
Hence, r’2 = kr2
or, r’ = r(k)1/2
Hence the effective thickness of slab is r/2 * k1/2
Hence the force between the charges is
Hence, option b) 4F/9 is correct.
 
Hope this helps.
Thanks and regards,
