Which force binds atoms together to form molecules?

The electrostatic force binds atoms together to form molecules.

What do electric forces depend on?

The attraction or repulsion between charged particles is called electric force. The strength of electric force depends on the amount of electric charge on the particles and the distance between them. Larger charges or shorter distances result in greater force.

What is meant by saying that charge is quantized?

Charge quantization, then, means that charge cannot take any arbitrary values, but only values that are integral multiples of the fundamental charge (charge of proton/electron). For example, in a hydrogen ion, we usually denote it with a positive sign to indicate that there’s one proton more than there are electrons.

Why do we ignore Quantisation of charge when dealing with macroscopic?

We can ignore the quantization of electric charge when dealing with macroscopic charges because the charge on one electron is 1.6 x 10–19C in magnitude which is very small as compared to the large scale change.

What does quantization mean?

transitive verb. 1 : to subdivide (something, such as energy) into small but measurable increments. 2 : to calculate or express in terms of quantum mechanics.

What is the Q of an electron?

This elementary charge is a fundamental physical constant. To avoid confusion over its sign, e is sometimes called the elementary positive charge….Elementary charge.

Elementary electric charge
Symbol: e or sometimes q e
Value in coulombs: 1.sup>−19 C

What does W in physics mean?


What is the relation between Q factor and voltage?

Explanation: Quality factor is also known as voltage magnification because the voltage across the capacitor or inductor in resonance condition is equal to Q times the source voltage.
