Why we use a test charge of small magnitude?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 17th Apr, 2015, 10:23: AM
We use a test charge of small magnitude so that it does not disturb the distribution of the charges whose electric field we wants to measure otherwise the measured field will be different from the actual field.

- what is flux
- Unit of Electric flux_?
- A point charge is placed at the centre of a closed Gaussian spherical surface of radius r. Electric flux passing through the surface is Φ. How is the electric flux Φ through the surface affected when the following changes are made in turn: (i) The spherical surface is replaced by a cylindrical surface of the same radius? (ii) The point charge is replaced by an electric dipole? Justify your answer in each case.
- Plzz explain

- A CHARGE IS PLACED AT THE CORNER OF A CUBE. WHAT IS THE NET FLUX COMING FROM THE CUBE?
- A square is placed in a uniform electric field E parallel to the horizontal such that the plane of the square makes an angle of 30° with the field.If the side of the square is a,find the flux through the square wire.
- In which case the electric field lines are parallel to one another?
- Give any one benefit of introducing the concept of electric field?
