Question :

  1. How does the air get ionised?
  2. Give relation between momentum and force.



  • The tendency of the air to begin the breakdown enhances when there is a strong electric field (of a very high order)  surrounding the same air.
  • Thus the air gets ionised due to the effect of electric field.
  • It is a common misconception that ionisation increases the quantity of positive or negative ions, it should be noted that no such change occurs  due to ionisation.
  • Ionisation forces the distance between the elctrons and positive ions to increase from their original molecular structure.


   Kindly ask only one question at a time in the query.

   Also, post the query regarding mathematics to the respective department.
