A neutral object can be induced a non-zero charge when placed in an electric field. The charges or dipoles within that material will simply rearrange or rotate to aline slightly. An electric field will be generated, which will counteract the current field. Have a look at dielectrics. The gravitational constant $G$ is... A constant. Just like the ...


The dielectric constant, or more appropriately, the dielectric function, can be thought of as a measure of screening. A simple relation for which to picture this is: $V_{eff} = V_{ext}/\epsilon$ Therefore, in TMDs, since the electrons are more mobile in the planes, they tend to screen potentials with a greater efficiency. This gives a higher dielectric ...
