I am having a hard time starting out this problem. The issue is that there are not any numbers that I could work with. Here is the question ,"Three identical conducting spheres initially have the following chargers:sphere A,4Q; sphere B, -6Q, and sphere C, 0. Spheres And B are fixed in place, with a center- to-center separation that is much larger than the spheres. Two experiments are conducted. In experiment 1, sphere C is touched by A and then ( separately) to sphere B and then it is removed. In experiment 2, starting with the same initial states, the procedure is reversed. What is the ratio of the electrostatic force between A and B at the end of experiment 2 to that at the end of experiment 1?"
