# A small sphere of mass m = 7.50 g and charge q 1 = 32.0 nC is attached to the end of a string and hangs vertically as in Figure P15.4. A second charge of equal mass and charge q 2 = –58.0 nC is located below the first charge a distance d = 2.00 cm below the first charge as in Figure P15.4. (a) Find the tension in the string. (b) If the string can withstand a maximum tension of 0.180 N, what is the smallest value d can have before the string breaks?
