A battery lies on a table. Does it produce an electric field in its vicinity when no conductor connects its terminals together? If yes, do you have an idea of its magnitude?

Thanks.

yes it has an E field , It would be similar to a capacitor , and the E field would go from + to minus.
Maybe you could use gauss's law .
