How does the coulomb force between two point charges depend upon the dielectric constant of the intervening medium?
Asked by hikoka | 25th May, 2011, 02:46: AM
It is because when a dielectric is placed between the charges , the dielectric gets polarized and the net electric field between the two charges decreases, hence force = charge x electric field also decreases.
