 # Electro statistics MCQ for NEET

Electrostatics is the study of stationary electric charges. An example of electrostatics is when a plastic rod is rubbed with the fur or silk, it will start to attract tiny pieces of paper and the rod is said to be electrically charged. The charge acquired by the plastic rod is negative and the paper is positive.

Following are the characteristics of electric charge:

• Like charges repel each other while unlike charges attract each other.
• A charge is conserved.
• All the charges are governed by Coulomb’s law.
