Magnetic and Electric Fields - Theory

  1. Feb 8, 2009 #1
    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.

    And if there is an unchanging stationary charge along the way?
