Q. 7 A3.6( 43 Votes )
An electric field line always points in the direction that a positive test charge would accelerate in if placed upon that line. A charge will experience a continuous force when placed in an electrostatic field. Therefore, an electrostatic field line will be a continuous curve. The field lines do not have any sudden breaks as the test charge or any charge will move continuously and does not jump from any point to another.

Ten positively charged particles are kept fixed on the x-axis at points x = 10 cm, 20 cm 30 cm, …., 100 cm. The first particle has a charge 1.0 × 10–8 C, the second 8 × 10–8 C, the third 27 × 10–8 C and so on. The tenth particle has a charge 1000 × 10–8 C.

Two Particles A and B having charges q and 2q respectively are placed on a smooth table with a separation d. A third particle C is to be clamped on the table in such a way that the particles A and B remain at rest on the table under electrical forces. What should be the charge on C and where should it be clamped?
A particle A having a charge of 2.0 × 10–6 C is held fixed on a horizontal table. A second charged particle of mass 80g stays in equilibrium on the table at a distance of 10 cm from the first charge. The coefficient of friction between the table and this second particle is μ = 0.2. Find the range within which the charge of this second particle may lie.
Suppose all the electrons of 100g water are lumped together to form a negatively charged particle and all the nuclei are lumped together to form a positively charged particle.

Two identically charged particles are fastened to the two ends of a spring of spring constant 100 N m–1 and natural length 10 cm. The system resets on a smooth horizontal table. If the charge on each particle is 2.0 × 10–8 C, find the extension in the length of the spring. Assume that the extension is small as compared to the natural length. Justify this assumption after you solve the problem.
