The coulomb (symbol: C) is the International System of Units (SI) unit of electric charge. Under the 2019 redefinition of the SI base units, which took effect on 20 May 2019, the coulomb is exactly 1/(1.602176634×10−19) elementary charges. The same number of electrons has the same magnitude but opposite sign of charge, that is, a charge of −1 C.
I tried just calculating the force with Coulomb's law, then calculating the forces for each vector individually and adding, but I got it wrong both ways
Hi there,
Does anyone know of a machine/equipment/technology, etc. that allows a person to give charges (Coulombs) to conductors in a measurable way? I've rubbed a ton of plastic rods with fur but that's not too measurable. The Van De Graaff is overkill or it if I try to connect alligator clips...
By relativity+coulombs force, I worked out that the (magnitude of the) magnetic field of a charge Q moving at speed V should be (ϒVV/c2)Q/(4πε0r2) or in terms of mu, ϒVμ0VQ/(4πr2) (where the distance r is measured normal to V).
When I google the answer I only find the same thing but without the...
