I was wondering if the action/force of the electric field is really felt everywhere. I know it does reduce as you get further, but my thoughts concerned more about materials.
So, I know that the electric field is strictly related to Coulomb's Law, and Coulomb's Law is different between materials. So my questions are,
- Does a net elctric field (generated by two oppositely charged object) is felt in every material in space? (In the picture, bottles,wood,copper,air,etc..)
- If it does, does it change its intensity based on materials? How?
I made a picture to try to help you understand my strange question, I drew the electric field reversed, because I like to imagine electrons moving. If there are problem with the question, please let me know in a comment. I will try immediately to fix them, editing the question
