Electrons and GravityScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
What will happen if we keep a bucket beneath a current-carrying wire and cut the wire? Will the electrons fall into the bucket?
Assume that the wire doesn't actually touch the bucket after it is cut.
AnswerThe force of gravity is much much less than electrostatic force so no electron will fall into the bucket.
Remember, this is not water.
