Homework Help: Electrical Fields in everyday life

  1. Mar 20, 2006 #1
    Hello,

    I'd like some ideas where to look in solving these two questions:

    1) Are You presently sitting in an Electrical field? If yes, whats the size of the E-field?

    2)A environmental requirement states that children arent supposed to stay in areas with electrical fields that exceed 600 V/m. Does this seem reasonable?

    .. 1: I know that electronics produce E-fields, but how do i assess the size of the field produced by i.e. my monitor?
    .. 2: What exactly is the danger about walking around in E-fields? Cancer? And is the limit reasonable?
