A charge at rest produces - (a) Magnetic field only (b) Electric field only (c) Both electric field and magnetic field (d) Neither electric field nor magnetic field

A charge at rest produces an electric field only. The characteristic of a substance that causes an electric or magnetic effect is known as an electric charge. The area or the region surrounding the moving electric charge or current-carrying cable. A magnetic field or magnetic induction by that material or current is defined as the magnetic substance in which the force of magnetism can be felt by other magnetic materials.

Electric Field

The area or space surrounding an electric charge in which another charged particle may experience electrostatic force is referred to as the electric field by that charge.

  • A charged particle only produces an electric field when it is at rest.
  • A charged particle that is traveling at a steady speed produces an electric field and a magnetic field everywhere around it.
  • When a charged particle accelerates, an electromagnetic wave is created all around it.
  • Magnetic and electric fields are interdependent. The electromagnetic field has these two facets.

Summary:

A charge at rest produces - (a)Magnetic field only (b)Electric field only (c)Both electric field and magnetic field (d)Neither electric field nor magnetic field

Only an electric field is produced by a charge at rest. There are no electric fields when a charge is at rest. Accelerated charge generates both an electric and magnetic field.
