Two point charges $\;q_{1}$ and $\;q_{2}$ are placed at a certain distance d from each other . The interacting force between them is F . Now both charges kept in oil of relative permittivity 5 . What is the new value of force between them


1 Answer

Answer : (c) $\;\large\frac{F}{5}$
Explanation :
$F=\large\frac{1}{4\pi \in_{0}}\;\large\frac{q_{1} q_{2}}{d^2}$
$F^{|}=\large\frac{1}{4\pi \in}\;\large\frac{q_{1} q_{2}}{d^2}$
$F^{|}=\large\frac{1}{5}\;\large\frac{1}{4\pi \in_{0}}\;\large\frac{q_{1} q_{2}}{d^2}$
