Why brass increase the electrostatic force of attraction​

Answers (1)


The brass plate is a conductor, so the potential will be the same on both sides. Thus the thickness of the brass plate therefore subtracts from the effective distance between the two charges this will make the electric field strength higher in the remaining open space between the charges. And because of this stronger field will cause more force to be experienced by each charge.
