Connect a battery to a pair of plates.
This creates a potential difference (ΔV)
Which creates a field (E = Δd )
Which exerts forces on charges (F = qE)
If you can’t get inside or get away, you should do the “lightning crouch.”
Feet close together, heels up
Lessen potential difference between your feet
The electron gun in a CRT television works like this.
A filament heats up, and electrons come off. The filament is grounded; its potential is 0
At some distance, a metal plate with an aperture set is set at a potential of 150 V.
The electron accelerates toward the positive plate, then continues through the aperture.
What is the direction of the electric fiel
