A In Chapter 23, you will encounter the electric force that exists between two electrically charged objects, given by the formula F E = kq 1 q 2 / r 2 , where k is a constant called Coulomb’s constant, each q represents the amount of excess charge on each object, and r is the distance between the objects. Find the change in electric potential energy between two charges that are initially a distance r 1 apart and later a distance r 2 apart.
