17.10. Set Up: Like charges repel and unlike charges attract. Solve: (a) The force is attractive so the unknown charge is positive. (b) The unknown charge exerts a downward force of 0.200 N on the other charge. 17.11. Set Up: The electrical force is given by Coulomb’s law, with A proton has charge and an electron has charge Solve: (a) Yes, this force is about 52 lbs. (b) The force is smaller than in part (a) by a factor of so it is No, this force is very small. 17.12. Set Up: One mole of carbon contains Each electron has charge If charge is removed from the sphere, the sphere is left with a charge of Solve: (a) The number of moles is The number of atoms is Each atom has 6 electrons, so the number of electrons is Each electron has charge so the total negative charge of the elec- trons is (b) The sphere would be left with positive charge The force would have magnitude This is an immense force. The charges are opposite sign so the force is attractive.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
