What distinguish electric field intensity from electric potential stating the unit of each?
Electric Field Intensity also simply referred to as the Electric Field is a vector quantity with the units (V/m) (Volts per meter) Symbol: E (Boldface to represent a vector) Electric Potential is a scalar quantity with units V (Volts). Also sometimes referred to as Voltage when dealing with the difference between two points. Symbol: V (non-bolded to represent a scalar) The relationship between the two is: The Electric Field Intensity E is equal to the negative of the gradient of V. ...

What is a model in which each outcome has an equal probability of occurring?
A uniform distribution. A uniform distribution. A uniform distribution. A uniform distribution. ...
An electric dipole placed with its axis inclined at an angle to the direction of a uniform electric field experiences?
It experiences a torque but no force. As the dipole is placed at an angle to the direction of a uniform electric field it experiences two opposite and equal forces which are not along the same line. This develops a torque which aligns the dipole along the field. The dipole does not experience any force as the two forces cancel each other. ...

What is the difference between uniform and non-uniform circular motion?
Uniform motion is when an object travels equal distances in equal intervals of time for eg. a car on a highway. non uniform motion is when an object travels unequal distances in equal intervals of time for eg. a car in a crowded market ...
Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Physics, Kinematics
How do you find the uniform acceleration if the speed and acceleration are given?
Find out the time using speed and acceleration, (time=speed/acceleration) and then use it to find out uniform velocity. From that find out uniform acceleration. (as uniform acceleration is equal changes of velocity over equal intervals of time) ...
When do you say that the velocity of the car is equal?
when a car travels equal distance in equal intervals of time its velocity is uniform and equal ...
Asked in Physics
An electron and a proton are situated in a uniform electric field.what is the ratio of their acceleration?
The charges on proton and electron are equal in magnitude. hence, the electric force F(=eE) on them will be equal in magnitude. Acceleration of electron,ae=F/me=eE/me Acceleration of proton,ap=F/mp=eE/1836me Therefore,ae/ap=1836 ...
