6 9. We apply conservation of energy for the particle with q = 7.5 × 10 6 C (which has zero initial kinetic energy): U 0 = K f + U f where U = q Q 4 πε o r . (a) The initial value of r is 0.60 m and the final value is (0.6 + 0.4) m = 1.0 m (since the particles repel each other).

Unformatted text preview: Conservation of energy, then, leads to K f = 0.90 J. (b) Now the particles attract each other so that the final value of r is 0.60 0.40 = 0.20 m. Use of energy conservation yields K f = 4.5 J in this case....
