## Object A has a charge of +2 μC, and object B has a charge  of +6 μC. Which statement is true?(a) F → AB = −3 F → BA (b) F → AB = − F → BA (c) 3 F → AB = − F → BA

Expert Solution
To determine
The force on the charges.

### Explanation of Solution

According to Newton’s third law, two objects exert equal and opposite forces on each other. Therefore, the charges exert forces that are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

Conclusion:

The positive charges repel each other. The magnitude of force on each other is the same...
