48. In experiment 1, sphere Cfirst touches sphere A, and they divided up their total charge (Q/2 plus Q) equally between them. Thus, sphere Aand sphere Ceach acquired charge 3Q/4. Then, sphere Ctouches Band those spheres split up their total charge (3Q/4 plus –Q/4) so that Bends up with charge equal to Q/4. The force of repulsion between Aand Bis therefore 12(3 / 4)( / 4)QQ
