(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If the magnetic field lines held within a closed path are constant and unchanging, will there be an electric field along the closed path?

2. Relevant equations

there are none.

3. The attempt at a solution

No. If it is unchanging, then no electrical energy will be radiated into the surroundings, therefore rendering it impossible for an electric field.

I just need a confirmation of my answer - I'm not really sure about all this closed path business.

Thanks in advance.
