Step 1

Given:

Two identical metal balls with the same net charge hanging with the help of a thread separately.

Step 2

Let the ball 1 is ball A and have mass 'm' and charge 'q'. ball 2 is ball B, have the same mass 'm' and same charge 'q'. As shown in the given figure both the balls make angle of θ with the vertical. 

The forces involved are Gravitational, electrostatic, tension from the thread and weight of the balls.

(a) Free body diagrams of both the balls are as follows:

Step 3

(b) Let the charge on the second ball (Ball B) becomes q' such that q'<q.

Both the charges exerts equal electrostatic forces on each other irrespective of the value of the charge on them. But due to reduction in charge on ball B, the value of electrostatic force between the ball will reduce. Hence, the angle with the vertical will also ...
