Question

The electric field is zero at a point along the line joining two charges. (a) Are the signs of the two charges equal or opposite? Explain. (b) Can the potential be zero at any point along the line? Explain.

Answer #1

electric field due to a + ve charge is radially outwards

and that of -ve charge is inwards

so if two opposite charges are places closer to each other, due to the action of

fields they interact and atttracts

if the two same charges say either +v3 or -ve are placed, then repuslive forces acts on them

so yes , it is possible for NEt EF to be zero in between two same charges.

----------

potential can also be ib between two opposite charges

as net Potential is sum of all individual potentials

The electric field is zero at a point along the line joining two
charges. (a) Are the signs of the two charges equal or opposite?
Explain. (b) Can the potential be zero at any point along the line?
Explain.

Define Electric field
A. Two charges of equal magnitude and opposite signs separated
by a distance
B. unit of electric field
C. property of a material that is directly proportional to the
resistance of the material
D. ratio of electric force to charge
E. None of the above
ANSWER:

The electric field midway between two equal but opposite point
charges is 715 N/C , and the distance between the charges is 29.7
cmcm . What is the magnitude of the charge on each?

If the electric potential at a certain point is zero, does the
electric field at that point have to be zero? Explain. PS(please do
not write the answer with handwriting)

A cube has point charges at all corners. No two charges have the
same value; all are unique. Is it possible for the electric
potential
(not the electric field!) at the center of the cube to be zero?
(Assume the point charge definition of potential in which V = 0 at
infinity.)
If the potential cannot be zero, explain why. If the potential can
be zero, what a special relationship must the charges have?

Two particles having charges of 0.580 nC and 5.22 nC are
separated by a distance of 1.80 m . At what point along the line
connecting the two charges is the net electric field due to the two
charges equal to zero?Where would the net electric field be zero if
one of the charges were negative?

Two point charges, one of -1.5 μC and the other of +3.7 μC, are
placed at the points (-2.5 m, -1.5 m) and (1.2 m, 0), respectively.
(a) Find the electric potential at the origin. (b) There is one
point along the radial line connecting the two charges where the
electric potential is zero. Find this point (x- and
y-coordinates).
