Problem 40E

BIO Electrical Sensitivity of Sharks. Certain sharks can detect an electric field as weak as 1.0 µV/m. To grasp how weak this field is, if you wanted to produce it between two parallel metal plates by connecting an ordinary 1.5-V AA battery across these plates, how far apart would the plates have to be?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 40E Step 1 of 1: Given 6 V ab = 1.5 V E = 1 V /m = 1 × 10 V /m d = We have to find the distance using the above given data The potential difference is, V ab = Ed ( for parallel plate) so, d = Vab = 1.5 V = 1.5 × 10 m = 1.5 × 10 km E 1×10 V /m The plates would have to be nearly a thousand miles apart with only a AA battery across them.
