Electric Forces and Electric Fields 29 The period of the pendulum will be 2 0.500 m 2 2 0.307 s "" 2 1 0 ms L T g ππ == = (b) Y . The force of gravity is a significant portion of the total downward force acting on the ball. Without gravity, the effective acceleration would be es 2 -3 0.200 N “” 2 0 0 1.00 10 kg e F g m = × giving 2 0.500 m 20 . 3 1 200 m s T π 4 s a 2.28% difference from the correct value with gravity included. 15.57 The sketch at the right gives a free-body diagram of the positively charged sphere. Here, 2 2 1 e F kq r = is the attractive force exerted by the negatively charged sphere and 2 F qE = is exerted by the electric field.
