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

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 force holds an electron in place?

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

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

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

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

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 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.

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.

When is the electric force attractive?

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