Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each other with an electrostatic force of 0.108 N when their center-to-center separation is 50.0 cm. The spheres are then connected by a thin conducting wire. When the wire is removed, the spheres repel each other with an electrostatic force of 0.0360 N. Of the initial charges on the spheres, with a positive net charge, what was (a) the negative charge on one of them and (b) the positive care on the other one?
Two identical conducting spheres are fixed in a plane attract each other with the electrostatic force of 0.108N
The electrostatic force of attraction is given by,
Sorry about that. What wasn’t helpful?
