Can 2 balls having same kind of charge on them attract each other?
No two balls carrying the same charge will never attract each other.
What happens when a positive charge is applied to both balls?
Touching the positively-charged rod to two pith ball gives the balls each a small positive charge. Since like charges repel, the pith balls repel one another. If an ebonite rod is rubbed with fur, the rod rubs some electrons off the fur.
When two positively charged small spheres are pushed toward each other what happens to their potential energy?
From the above formula, as the distances between the charges are decreased, the potential energy increases. Hence, when two positively charged small spheres are pushed towards each other, the potential energy increases.
Does like charges attract each other True or false?
The like charges mean the charges of the same kind and unlike charges mean charges of different kinds. We know like charges repel each other while unlike charges attract each other. Therefore, the first statement is false and the second statement is true. So, the correct answer is “Option C”.
