Q. 28

Which of the following will not show deflection from the path on passing through an electric field?

Proton, cathode rays, electron, neutron

Answer :

Neutron will not show deflection from the path on passing through an electric field.


This is due to the neutral nature of the neutron particles. Therefore, it has no charge and does not get affected by any electric field.


Among other 3 particles proton (positive ), electron (negative), cathode rays (beam of electrons, negatively charged) all have charges in them so they will get deflected easily by an electric field
