D EVELOP The gravitational force and the electrostatic force between a proton and an electron separated by a distance r are, respectively, grav 2 p e Gm m F r = and 2 elec 2 ke F r = E VALUATE The ratio of the two forces is 2 2 9 2 2 19 2 elec 2 11 2 2 27 31 grav 39 (9 10 N m /C )(1.6 10 C) (6.67 10 N m /kg )(1.67 10 kg)(9.11 10 kg) 2.3 10 p e F ke r F Gm m r - - - - × × = = × × × × Note that the spatial dependence of both forces is the same, and cancels out. A SSESS At all distances (for which the particles can be regarded as classical point charges), the Coulomb force is about 40 10 times stronger than the gravitational force. 22.

### What students are saying

• 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.
