An electron is placed near a neutron. Which statement best describes the electrostatic force between them?
a) there's no force between them since one is neutral
b)there's a force of repulsion between them
c)there's a force of attraction between them

Isn't it a) because neutrons are neural in charge?

  • Physics -

    a is correct. However, in reality, I would love to see an electron placed near a neutron, and meet the person collecting the evidence.
