Define dielectric constant of a medium in terms of force between electric charges.

dielectric constant is defined as the  ratio of force between two charges placed some distance apart in vaccum to the force between the same two charges placed at same distance apart in the given medium.

k=E/EO

hey..

When the charges are located in some othermedium rather than vaccum then the force between the charges will be :

Where  is the absolute electric permittivity of the medium
hope i helped... :)

Wrong Abhimathy, K= E0/E

Does the electric charge vary with the speed of the charge body?

Dielectric constant is the ratio of force between two point charges placed at some distance in vacuum to that of force between them placed at same distance in any other medium. It is also known as relative permeability. k=Force in vacuum/Force in any other medium For air: k=1 For water: k=81
