    Electric field

    1. Is there any lower limit to the electric force between two particles placed at a separation of 1 cm ?My ans>> Yes, zero.

    2.Can a gravitational field be added vectorially to an electric field to get a total field?My ans>>yes because they are simply two vectors

    3.In some old text it is mentioned that 4 [tex]\pi[/tex] lines of force originate from each unit positive charge.Comment on the statement in view of the fact that 4 [tex]\pi[/tex] is not an integer.
    My ans>>sorry I have no clue.

    Looking forward for your comments.


    ps: it is not 4^pi, it is 4*pi
