A small sphere of charge q = +68 µC and mass m
is attached to a light string and placed in a uniform electric
field É that makes an angle 0 = 37° with the horizontal. The
opposite end of the string is attached to a wall and the sphere
is in static equilibrium when the string is horizontal as in Fig-
ure P15.22. (a) Construct a free body diagram for the sphere.
Find (b) the magnitude of the electric field and (c) the ten-
sion in the string.
