a pendulum bob of mass 80mg and carrying a charge of 2*10-8 coulomb is at rest in a uniform horizontal electric field of 20kV/m.find
(a.)tension in the thread of the pendulum and
(b.)the angle it makes with the vertical.

hey priyanka,

this problem can be solved by using the concept :

let  the  pendulum  makes  an  angle    with  the  vertical. Resolve the components of Tension  ' T '  in x-y directions..Tcos in vertical direction  and  Tsin  in  x direction.

Tcos  is  balanced  by  weight  mg  therefore,

Tcos = mg.....................................................(1)

Tsin  is  balanced  by  force F,

Tsin = F   ( where  F = qE  ).........................................(2)

by solving both the equations u will get the values of both tension as well as ....

cheers..............
