Distribution of Charge on Conductor
At which area is the surface charge density maximum on a conductor?
The beginning point of conduction for the conductor
Body of the conductor
Sharp edges and points
It is uniform everywhere
Can we create an artificial lightning?
In an irregularly shaped conductor, where will be the point of maximum charge?
On the surface place
Charge is distributed equally
At sharp points
At the edges
In the construction of the lightning conductor, give reason for having one end of the rod kept out in the air and the other end buried deep inside. [2 MARKS]
At which point in a conductor do charges flow?
Charges enter and stay at the point of initial contact.
Charges pass through the entire body of the conductor.
Charges don't enter a conductor at all
Charges flow through the topmost layer of the conductor.
A uniformly charged conducting sphere of 2.4m diameter has a surface charge density of 80nC/m2. (a) find the charge on the chage on the sphere.(b) what is the net electric flux leaving the surface of the sphere.
find the ratio of their surface charge densities in terms of their radii ?
