Explain.... ' electric force is largely zero and the gravitational force dominates the terrestrial phenomena' .

Dear Student,

We know that electromagnetic force can be attractive or repulsive due to charge which is negative or positive. Therefore, matter is mostly electrically neutral, i.e., net force is zero. Thus, electric force is largely zero.

Gravity is always attractive because mass always positive. Therefore, gravitational force dominates the terrestrial phenomena.
