What do you know about the electrostatic shielding? Write its some applications.
The phenomenon of making a region free from any electric field is called electrostatic shielding.
- In lightening thunderstorm, it is safe to sit inside the car, rather than near a tree or in open ground. The metallic body of the car acts as electrostatic shielding from lightening.
- In coaxial cable, the outer conductor connected to the ground provides an electrical shield to the signals carried by the central conductor.
