Vectors

Before proceeding to explain vectors, I’ll like to ask a simple question, “Do you know what physical quantity is ?”. If answer is – ‘Yes’, we are safe to go ahead but in other scenario I’ll recommend reading Physical Quantities. If we closely watch physical quantities, we can categorized them in two. Yes this is […]

What is the Meaning of Electric Flux – How is it defined ?

Electric Flux – Definition : Electric flux gives the measure of flow of the electric field through a given area. We may define electric flux as-  Electric flux is proportional to the number of electric field lines passing normally through a  surface. If the electric field is uniform, the electric flux passing through a surface of vector area S is calculated by following formula – […]

Coulomb’s Law – Explanation of Statement , Formulas-Principle, Limitation of Coulomb’s Law

This article is about coulomb’s law. Here I have tried to explain it in simple words. Hope it helps you in understanding the coulomb’s law in a comprehensive way. As mentioned in earlier article, it had been first observed in 600 before Christ by Greek philosopher Thales of Miletus, if two bodies are charged with […]

Experiment to Explain Frictional Electricity and Concept of Charging by Induction

Hope previous articles helped you in understanding Physics in better way. In this article I will discuss a simple experiment that will clear the concept of frictional electricity and concept of charging by induction. So let’s begin with the experiment For this simple experiment take a balloon and  a paper pin. Hang paper pin with […]
