In modern times, synthetic materials, such as polyethylene, provide excellent electrical characteristics. They also are more impervious to corrosion or other chemical reaction and are easy to extrude into cable. Of course, the safety application of insulators is to isolate workers from the inner metal conductors, reducing the risk of electric shock and greatly reducing the possibility of exposure to electric arc. Insulation is inherently safe unless it is improperly applied, used in the wrong environment, or physically damaged by external or electrical action.

Electrons repel other electrons. Charles-Augustin de Coulomb (1736–1806) developed the formula (named Coulomb’s law) for calculating the strength of the electrostatic force. 2) where )>> F = force between the two charged objects in newtons (N) )>> q1 and q2 = charges on the two objects in coulombs (C) )>> r = distance between the objects in meters (m) )>> k = Coulomb’s constant = 9 × 109 Nm2/C2 Unlike the force of gravity, electrostatic force can be either positive or negative. This means that a positive electrostatic force (two like charges) is a force of repulsion.

Ralph Lee has predicted that the heat energy received by an object (or worker) can be calculated using Eq. 10. 14)>> Chapter ONE Using Eq. 8 as a starting point, Lee determined that the energy received by the worker is calculated using Eq. 11. )>> E = 2 . â•… Research by Bingham and others4,5,9 has yielded a slightly different result based primarily on empirical results. Using an experimental setup,9 the researchers measured energy received from an electric arc at various distances. ” Using these experiments, they developed two equations to model the amount of energy received.
