Question Description: How can you relate your personal experiences with how the electrostatic force weakens as distance between two charges become greater?
Course Hero Answer & Explanation:
If we take a glass rod rubbed with silk, we know that they attract each other.
If we keep the glass rod very far away from the silk, then the glass rod doesn’t attract the silk, but as we decrease the distance between them we observe that more and more silk threads get attracted towards the glass rod.
This proves that the electrostatic force becomes stronger as the distance between two charges becomes smaller,
and the electrostatic force weakens as the distance between two charges becomes greater.
