Two metal spheres are hanging from nylon threads. When you bring the spheres close to each other, they tend to attract. Based on this information alone, discuss all the possible ways that the spheres could be charged. Is it possible that after the spheres touch, they will cling together? Explain.
Physics 272 Week 2 Notes • Introductory Notes: o 1 Angstrom (Å) = 10 -10= about the size of one atom o An electric field exists everywhere but at its own origin o An Eclectic field looks the same close as it does far away • Sphere With a Charge: o E spherehen r < R is 0 (inside the sphere) o E total sum of all charges • Electric Dipole o Shape of a Dipole: ▪ Efield on Axis3̂ ▪ EField in Bisecting Plane 3 ▪ q = charge ▪ s = distance between charges • Conservation of Charge: o You can move charge in system to its surroundings o You can create charg
