48. In experiment 1, sphere C first touches sphere A , and they divided up their total charge ( Q /2 plus Q ) equally between them. Thus, sphere A and sphere C each acquired charge 3 Q /4. Then, sphere C touches B and those spheres split up their total charge (3 Q /4 plus – Q /4) so that B ends up with charge equal to Q /4. The force of repulsion between A and B is therefore 1 2 (3 / 4)( / 4) QQ
