Textbook Problem

A 7.50-nC charge is located 1.80 m from a 4.20-nC charge. (a) Find the magnitude of the electrostatic force that one particle exerts on the other. (b) Is the force attractive or repulsive?

(a)

To determine
The force between the two alpha particles.

Explanation

Given info: The two alpha particles with charges q1=2e and q2=2e are separated by a distance r=5.00×1015m .

From Coulomb’s Law,

F=ke|q1||q2|r2

  • ke is the Coulomb constant.

Substitute 8.99×109N.m2/C2 for ke , 3.2×1019C for q1 , 3

(b)

To determine
The magnitude of acceleration.
