Similarities and differences in magnetic and electric field (Dilpreet posted this question)
| Both electric and magnetic field are conservative forcesBoth obey inverse square law
Both are non contact forces (Forces can be exerted without contact)
Both are attractive as well as repulsive (Like poles repel, like charges repel; unlike poles attract, unlike charges attract)
| Electric field is produced by a charge whether at rest or in motionBut magnetic field is produced only by a moving charge
The total magnetic flux through any closed surface is always zero, but the total electric flux through any closed surface is equal to the net charge enclosed by the surface multiplied by the reciprocal of absolute permitivity
Electric field lines are discontinuous as they have a starting point (+ charge) and an ending point (- charge); But magnetic field lines are continuous, they always form closed loops
We know that photon has no charge. Then where from it gets electric and magnetic field in light?
Malik Sajad asks
Electric and magnetic fields are not produced by the photon; it is massless too.
But, photon is created by time varying electric and magnetic fields, usually produced by accelerated charges.
As you might have already learnt, a charge at rest produces an electric field around it. A moving charge (current) produces a magnetic field around it as well as magnetic field. A varying current produces a varying magnetic field and hence an induce emf or current. An accelerated charge produces a time varying electric and magnetic fields.
Thus under suitable situations, the electric and magnetic fields can reinforce each other and propagate out as pure electromagnetic form of energy and such a packet of energy is called photon.
Neeraj asks: ”We have read that atoms can neither been created nor been destroyed!
I want to know from where atoms came in existence,if they can not been created,also atom contain electron and proton which are negatively and positively charged,i want to know from where these charge came?”
Your question will be answered soon
Rajkumar asks:”in electrostatic induction in step 3 when earthed wire is removed then where the free negative charge go.does they go to earth then what happen to them.”

“how can we say that charge and mass of a proton has a constant value if it depends on the nature of the gas taken”
Answer: The mass of proton does not depend on the nature of gas or material.
“Can mass of a charged particle be infinite and if
yes explain how and when?????”
Answer: Please note that charge is independent of speed but mass depends on speed. So of a body of any mass is moving with gradually increasing speeds, its mass goes on increasing as per the theory of relativity (The relativistic mass ) but the charge remains the same.
Therefore, the mass of a charged particle can be infinity.
