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 for useful purpose?
I feel that this is a metter for research.
If you feel otherwise and know some method to tap this potential, please post.
What does Rheostat controls? electron drift velocity or quantity of electrons?
We know I=nAve
n=quantity of electron

“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

Therefore, resistance changes which can be calculated ...Read the full post
Mohit asked this question:
“What is meant by charge on a capacitor?”
Answer: As we know, a simple capacitor (say a parallel plate capacitor) consists of two plates parallel to each other. When charged, charge on either plate of the capacitor is called charge on the capacitor.

jaipreet singh asked: “can you please tell me the DERIVATION OF CELLS IN SERIES AND PARALLEL?”
Answer: I am posting here the simplified treatment to calculate the current in a circuit with combination of cells.
In this derivation it is assumed that all cells have the same EMF and same internal resistance.
CELLS IN SERIES
Consider n identical cells of emf E and internal resistance r connected in series across an external resistor of resistance R.
The total internal resistance = nr (since the internal resistances come in series)
The total resistance in the circuit = nr+R
The total emf = nE (since the emfs add up in series circuit)
Therefore, the current in the circuit;
PARALLEL COMBINATION OF CELLS
Consider m identical cells of emf E and internal resistance connected in parallel across an external resistor of resistance R.
The total emf in circuit = E (Since each cell has the same emf and they are in parallel)
The net internal resistance = r/m (since the cells are in parallel, their resistances are also in parallel. If m identical resistances are in parallel, the effective resistance is r/m)
The total resistance in circuit = R + r/m
Therefore, the current in circuit;
MIXED COMBINATION OF CELLS
Consider a combination of m rows of n cells each. The emf of each cell is E and the internal resistance of each cell is r. This combination is connected across and external resistance R.
The total EMF = nE
The net internal resistance = nr/m
The total resistance in circuit = R + nr/m
The current in circuit;
