Hi all :) I am about to finish the chapter of electromagnetic induction in my class. And I taught my students that the electric field induced due to changing magnetic flux is different that the electrostatic field due to stationary charges(Now I am wondering would it be wrong if I used the world electric field instead of electrostatic field, need this clarification also). One of my text says electric field can be conservative and non-conservative it does not especifically says electrostatic fields are conservative. So can I think electric field(not just electrostatic field) can be conservative and non-conservative? Well as electromagnetic induction chapter is about to finish, I want to connect electricity and magnetic in the way they are. So I am studying this area and I found Maxwell's equations are doing this job. The problem: I connect a wire loop to a battery. Their must be electric field set up within the wire, right? This electric field will apply force on each of the charge particle, Right? The free charge particles do move due to the force of the field, Right? What is the direction of this force with respect to the instantaneous velocity of the charge? Will their be any work done by the field on the charge during complete loop in the wire and inside the battery? Finally what can I say about the conservative and non-conservative nature of the electric field that is set up in the wire loop? Thanks a bunch. Any help will be highly appreciated.
