Short Answer

Two flat, parallel electrodes apart are kept at potentials of . Estimate the electric field strength between them.

The electric field strength is

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1 : Given information and formula used  

Given :

Distance between the electrodes :

Are kept at potentials of :

Theory used :

The electric field will be equal to the potential difference divided by the distance between these potentials. That is to say,

Step 2 : Calculating the electric field strength between the two parallel electrodes 

Since we have :

So, in our numerical example,
