Question
(a) What is the electric field 5.00 m from the center of the terminal of a Van de Graaff with a 3.00 mC charge, noting that the field is equivalent to that of a point charge at the center of the terminal? (b) At this distance, what force does the field exert on a $2.00 \textrm{ }\mu\textrm{C}$ charge on the Van de Graaff's belt?
1. $1.08 \times 10^6 \textrm{ N/C}$
2. $2.16 \textrm{ N}$
