charged by touching them with one of these objects. It is found that pithballs 1 and 2 aOract each other and that pithballs 2 and 3 repel each other . From this we can conclude that A. 1 and 3 carry charges of opposite sign. B. 1 and 3 carry charges of equal sign. C. All three carry the charges of the same sign. D. One of the objects carries no charge. E. We need to do more experiments to determine the sign of the charges. Three idenPcal charges are lined up in a row. Sketch the free body diagram for q3. Draw the forces to scale. (Consider only the electric forces.) Next, write down the total vector force acPng on q3.

10/3/17 2 Foothold ideas: Electric Forces and Fields When we focus our attention on the electric force on a particular charge (a test charge) we see the force it feels factors into the magnitude of its charge times a factor that depends on position (and the other charges). Foothold ideas: Fields A field is a concept we use to describe anything that varies in space. It is a set of values assigned to each point in space (e.g., temperature or wind speed). A force field is an idea we use for non-touching forces . It puts a force vector at each point in space, summarizing the effect of all objects that would exert a force on a particular object placed at that point.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
