Lesson: Charging by InductionPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to determine the net charge resulting from unequal amounts of positive and negative charges acquired by induction.
Sample Question Videos
Suppose a speck of dust in an electrostatic precipitator has protons in it and has a net charge of nC. How many electrons does the speck of dust contain? The magnitude of the charge of protons and of electrons is C.
Determine how many coulombs of positive charge are contained in a lump of pure plutonium with a mass of 4.00 kg. Use a value of 244 g/mol for the atomic mass of plutonium and recall that the plutonium has an atomic number of 94.
A copper atom has 29 protons and a neutral ball of copper has one electron per proton. Copper has an atomic mass of 63.5 unified atomic mass units. A unified atomic mass units is equivalent to g.
How many electrons would be contained in a neutral copper ball with a mass of 50.0 g?
A copper ball with a mass of 50.0 g has a net charge of +2.00 µC. What percent of the electrons in the copper ball have been removed?
