      Strategy We are given the charge, its velocity, and the magnetic field strength and direction. We can thus use the equation or to calculate the force. The direction of the force is determined by RHR Solution. First, to determine the direction, start with your fingers pointing in the positive your fingers upward in the direction of magnetic : Samuel J. Ling, William Moebs, Jeff Sanny.   The high voltage transmission and distribution lines are a source of electromagnetic fields, which may produce adverse effects on humans. Consequently, the magnitudes of the electric and magnetic fields are of increasing interest in a variety of situations, thus making it worthwhile to develop generalpurpose software that estimates both the electric Cited by: 3.

EMR associated with power lines is a type of low frequency non-ionizing radiation. Electric fields are produced by electric charges, and magnetic fields are produced by the flow of electrical current through wires or electrical devices.

Because of this, low frequency EMR is found in close proximity to electrical sources such as power lines. Table 7 Effects of electric and magnetic fields on animals.

so we can record low electric fields even in smaller distances. The prices of the emitted magnetic fields dependent on electric loads of specific power lines, the spacing of the current carrying conductors etc.

Power lines: Proximity to an overhead power transmission line increases AC magnetic fields in nearby houses, sometimes up to hundreds of feet away.

Exposure will depend on distance, and on the amount of current on the power line, which may vary seasonally or with time of day, sometimes powerlines are turned off or operate at reduced power.

This page deals with high-voltage underground cables. Underground cables at lower voltages are covered in the pages on distribution.

4% of the high-voltage electricity network in England and Wales is underground, mainly in urban areas or areas of great scenic beauty.

Studies of the effects of various oscillatory electric fields on hydrogenic spectral lines have a long history. Over the years various effects of a monochromatic linearly-polarized electric field were analyzed and applied to spectroscopic diagnostics of laboratory and astrophysical plasmas.

Then in a paper was published where the author analyzed how profiles of hydrogen spectral Author: E. Oks.

Since the electric field has both magnitude and direction, it is a vector. Electric fields directly beneath power lines may vary from a few volts per meter for some overhead distribution lines to several thousands of volts per meter for extra-high voltage power lines.

Electric fields from power lines rapidly become weaker with distance and can be greatly reduced by walls and roofs of buildings. The electric fields pro-duced by distribution lines don’t vary much because in most cases, they carry a relatively stable voltage of 14 or 25 kV.

The walls of your house screen inhabitants from outside power lines. Consequently, these lines contribute very little to File Size: 1MB. Drawings using lines to represent electric fields around charged objects are very useful in visualizing field strength and direction.

Since the electric field has both magnitude and direction, it is a vector. Like all vectors, the electric field can be represented by an arrow that has length proportional to its magnitude and that points in the correct direction. In this exercise, you will practice drawing electric field lines.

Make sure you represent both the magnitude and direction of the electric field adequately. Note that the number of lines into or out of charges is proportional to the charges. (a) Draw the electric field lines map for two charges and situated 5 cm from each : Samuel J.

Ling, William Moebs, Jeff Sanny. E1: Electric Fields and Charge 3 electron cloud is equal to the number of protons in the nucleus. Since the charges of the proton and electron are exactly equal in magnitude and opposite in sign, atoms are electrically neutral. Atoms may gain or lose electrons, thus becoming ions.

Southeastern Electric tries to maintain overhead line clearances but cannot guarantee clearances if lines are lowered by storms or material failure. Electric and magnetic fields (EMF) are areas of energy that surround any electrical device. EMFs are produced by power lines, electrical wiring, and appliances (see Question 1).

Electric fields are easily shielded or weakened by walls .
