# Your question: Is it possible for an electric field to exist at point in empty space?

Contents

(a) Is it possible for an electric field to exist at point A in empty space? Yes. The positive charges create electric fields that extend in all directions from those charges. The total field at point A is the vector sum of the individual fields produced by the charges at that point.

## Is it possible for an electric field to exist in an empty space?

Yes, an electric field exists in empty space, according to Maxwell’s equations.

## What is the electric field at a point in empty space?

The electric field E at a point in space is defined to be the amount of electric force per charge exerted at that point in space. So this is what the electric field is. It’s the force per charge. The way physicists usually think about this is imagine throwing a test charge in here.

## Is it possible for an electric field to exist at some point in space at which there is no charge explain?

Q20 Is it possible for an electric field to exist at some point in space at which there is no charge? Yes, all we need to have is a charge somewhere in space that can exert a force on a positive test charge brought to that point in space.

## Do electric fields actually exist?

The correct statement is that electric fields and magnetic fields are both fundamental, both are real, and both are part of one unified entity: the electromagnetic field.

## Is electric field present in vacuum?

Yes, the electric field can exist in a perfect vacuum.

## How do you find the electric field at a point?

We can find the electric field created by a point charge by using the equation E=kQr2 E = k Q r 2 .

## Is electric field at a point always continuous?

Option A-No, the electric field is not always continuous. … Note- The electric field because of any charge will be continuous, if there is no other charge in the medium. It will be discontinuous if there is a charge at that viable point.

## Does charge exist at this point?

Point particles have no volume: their spatial extent is similar to the mathematical idea of a point, regardless of their mass. Point charges have charge (and perhaps mass) with no physical extent.

## Can an electric field exist without an electric force?

Q1,Yes, there can be an electric field at a point with no charge. But there will be no force from it untill a point with a charge is there. No, there will always be a field with a charge. Q2,Well, in order to repel the charges would have to be like (both either positive or negative).

## Can an electric field exist inside a conductor?

No electric field exists inside the conductor, since free charges in the conductor would continue moving in response to any field until it was neutralized.

## Can electric fields exist without charged particles?

Technically yes, electromagnetic fields can exist without charged particles. These are the so-called vacuum solutions of Maxwell’s field equations, nontrivial solutions in the absence of charges.

## Can electric field exist without magnetic field?

In this electromagnetic field, the electric field and the magnetic field move perpendicular to each other. … So, both the electric and magnetic fields exist without each other. So, we conclude that magnetic fields can exist without electric fields and electric fields can also exist without magnetic fields.

## Is electric field infinite?

So there is no infinity. In two dimensions (or in one), the electric field falls off only like 1r so the potential energy is infinite, and objects thrown apart get infinite speed in the analogous two-dimensional situation.

## Why do electric field exist?

Electric fields are caused by electric charges, described by Gauss’s law, and time varying magnetic fields, described by Faraday’s law of induction. Together, these laws are enough to define the behavior of the electric field.
