Yes. For example, runner on 2nd, batter hits ground ball to the shortstop, who, instead of throwing to first, throws to third base in an attempt to get the runner. The batter is charged with reaching first on a fielder's choice, even if the runner is safe or out.

Does a fielders choice count as a plate appearance?

yes. you ground to short with a man on first and they get the force at second... you are 0-1

Is it a hit if the runner running to 3rd base gets tagged out but there is no force?

No. This would be a fielders choice and would not count as a hit for the batter.

Is it a fielders choice if the out could not be made at first?

If the batter hits the ball, and the result is a force out, then the play is considered a "fielder's choice" no matter how unlikely it would have been for an out to have been made at first base. In the batter's statistics, it is counted as an at bat but not a hit.

What force causes static charge?

Friction is the force that causes static charge

Does a magnetic field attract electricity?

When the electrical charge is stationary in a magnetic field then no force would act on the charge. But if the charge is in motion that too in an inclined direction with the magetic field then a force would act on the moving charge. This force is named as Lorentz magnetic force

What force holds an electron in place?

The Electromagnetic force. Actually the force of attraction of the electrons' negative charge to the protons' positive charge.

What will be the direction of charge if the gravitational force is equal to electrostatic force?

charge will be suspended it will not have any direction

What is cobalt's strength of electrostatic force?

The strength of the electrostatic force depends on the electric charge. If you have a block of cobalt - or of just about any other material for that matter - you can put a positive charge, a negative charge, or no charge on it; and the charge can be large or small.

How does a positive charge attract a negative charge?

The exchange particle for electromagnetic force is the photon. It carries the force. This force is mathematically described by Coulomb's Law.

Who was in charge of the British force on the Somme?

General Douglas Haig was in charge of the British force on the Somme in World War I.

How can we call a forced choice a choice?

We are doing the action of completing the choice. It is ours whether its ours by will or ours by force.

Is the Air force or navy better for nursing?

There is no one way to answer that question. Its a matter of bias. If you like the Air Force then the Air Force is your best choice, If you like the Navy then the Navy is your best choice.

Does a static charge experience a force in the magnetic field?

A moving charge will experience a force in a magnetic field.

When is the electric force attractive?

The electric force is attractive between two opposite charge, i.e., a positive and a negative charge.

A force that holds two atoms together?

The force that holds two atoms together is an electrical charge. The positive charge comes from protons and the negative charge comes from electrons.

Electric force varies depending on the?

Eletric force depends on CHARGE and DISTANCE

When charge 2 is 3.0 m away from charge 1 the strength of the electric force on charge 2 by charge 1 is 0.80 N If instead charge 2 were 6.0 m away from charge 1 what is the electrical force?

The strength of the electrostatic force is inversely proportional to the square of the distancebetween the charges. So if the distance is doubled, the force becomes 1/4 of what it was.The new force is 0.80/4 = 0.20 N.

Is the direction of the electric force on a charge is tangent to the field line?

yes,the direction of electric force on a charge is tangent of field lines.

What surrounds electric charge and exerts force on other charges?

An electric field surrounds the charge and exerts force on other charges.

What is the force of exists between particles of the same charge?

Two particles of the same charge will experience an electrostatic repulsive force. Specifically, the force is given by Coulomb's Law.

What is the force between positive and negative charges?

The force on each charge would be towards the other charge in this case. The amount of the force would depend on the magnitude of the charges, and on the distance between them.

What isn't a force?

Electromotive force is not a force. It is the work performed to move one coulomb of charge.

What is the meaning of strong nuclear force is charge-independent?

It means that nuclear force does not depend on the charge of particles but depends on other properties! :P

Which force acts on any two objects that have a charge?

Electric force

What is the different between electric force and electric field?

Electric field due to a charge is the space around the charge in which any other charge experience a force of attraction or repulsion. Whereas, electric force is the electric field intensity and is defined as the force on a unit positive charge at any point in an electric field is the electric field intensity E at that point.
