Sir can you tell me that what is the "Conservation of charge" ?
Asked by Ashish | 12th Apr, 2017, 01:39: PM
Conservation of charge states that an electric charge can neither be created nor destroyed and the net quantity of charge in the Universe always remains constant. Now, this statement means that if a body loses charge then some other body gains the charge keeping the net balance constant.
Consider a body of charge 'q' and a body somewhere in the vicinity having charge 'q1'. Now, if body A loses an electron then it becomes positively charged. So, is there a net positive charge in the Universe? The answer is no because body B will gain that electron and become negatively charged keeping the net charge constant.

- SI unit of electric potential V is * (a) NC⁻¹ (b) volt (c) Jm⁻¹ (d) J⁻¹C
- What is the relation between electric field and potential difference?
- 1) Five identical capacitors, each of capacitance C are connected between points X and Y as shown in the figure. If the equivalent capacitance of the combination between X and Y is 5mF. Calculate the capacitance of each capacitor. 2) Eight identically charged drops are joined to form bigger drop. By what factor the charge and potential change?
- why does negative charge flow from lower potential to higher potential
