Can the frictional electricity produced during landing of a plane be used for constructive purposes?

As we know that in aeroplane during landing the charged produced in it due to the friction with ground are earthed through its wheels; can this charge be stored with the help of a capacitor and used

Electrons and flow of electrons – Did you have this doubt before?

“When an electric cell is connected to a circuit, electrons flow away from the negative terminal in the circuit. But within the cell, electrons flow to the negative terminal. Explain? Answer: The question seems to be the result of some misconceptions. If we consider an electrochemical cell, it is the chemical reactions which develops and ...Read the full post

Change in resistance due to stretching a wire

“There is a wire whose resistance is R. it is streched, and its length gets increased to 2%. find new resistance.” – Knishka Agrawal asked Answer: The resistivity does not change due to stretching, but the length and area of cross section changes; but the volume remains constant. Therefore, resistance changes which can be calculated ...Read the full post
