Coulomb force and gravitational force follow the same inverse-square law. But gravitational force has only one sign (always attractive), while Coulomb force can be of both signs (attractive and repulsive), allowing possibility of cancellation of electric forces. This is how gravity, despite being a much weaker force, can be a dominating and more pervasive force in nature. (ii) Charge is not only a scalar (or invariant) under rotation; it is also invariant for frames of reference in relative motion. This is not always true for every scalar. For example, kinetic energy is a scalar under rotation, but is not invariant for frames of reference in relative motion. Conservation of total charge of an isolated system is a property independent of the scalar nature of charge. Conservation refers

You are familiar with the principle of superposition as applied to the electric fields

of a collection of point charges. We may

apply this principle to extended charge distributions as well. For this problem, model each

charged object as a collection of many individual charges, then use symmetry arguments

in order to reason out your answer.

The electric field at a location C points north

and has a magnitude of 6 105 N/C. Where

must you place a proton and an electron

(charge |q| = 1.6 1019 C) so that both lie

on the same line passing through C and are

equidistant from C in order to produce this

field? Use k = 9 109 Nm2 /C2 .

Correct answer: 6.9282 108 m.

Explanation:

Since the proton and electron have equal

but opposite charge and we are told they are

at equal distances from C, it must be that
