Consider the arrangement of three small charged spheres, each of mass 6 g, shown in the figure. The spheres have equal charges of 75 nC and are positioned on the vertices of an equilateral triangle, with side length 41 cm. a) If these spheres are released at precisely the same time, how fast, in meters per second, will they be moving when they are infinitely far away form each other?
