Two spherical conductors B and C having equal radii and carrying equal charges in them repel each other with a force F when kept apart at some distance. A third spherical conductor having same radius as that of B but uncharged, is brought in contact with B, then brought in contact with C and finally removed away from both. The new force of repulsion between B and C is
Three equal charges, each having a magnitude of 2.0 x 10-6 C, are placed at the three corners of a right angled triangle of sides 3 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm. The force (in magnitude) on the charge at the right angled corner is
Two charges of + 10 μC and +20 μC are separated by a distance 2 cm. The net potential (electric) due to the pair at the middle point of the line joining the two changes, is
The charges on two spheres are + 7 µC and -5C respectively. They experience a force F. If each of them is given an additional charge of -2 µC, then the new force of attraction will
A square loop ABCD, carrying a current I2, is placed near and coplanar with a long straight conductor XY carrying a current I1, as shown in figure. The net force on the loop will be
Three identical charges are placed at the vertices of an equilateral triangle. The force experienced by each charge, ( if k = 1/4 ) is
