Action and Reaction due to Coulomb Interaction Two particles with masses m 1 , m 2 and charges q 1 , q 2 are released from rest a distance r apart. We consider the following four distinct configurations: (a) m 1 = 1 kg, m 2 = 1 kg, q 1 = 1 C, q 2 = 1 C (b) m 1 = 1 kg, m 2 = 1 kg, q 1 = 1 C, q 2 = 2 C (c) m 1 = 1 kg, m 2 = 2 kg, q 1 = 1 C, q 2 = 1 C (d) m 1 = 1 kg, m 2 = 2 kg, q 1 = 1 C, q 2 = 2 C q 1 m 2 q 2 1 m r Anwer the following questions for each configuration:
