below. Note that this is also the equal magnitude electric force that object 2, with electric charge q2, exerts on
object 1, with electric charge q1: where k = 9.0 x 109 N•m2/ C2.
We assume that the objects are much smaller than their separation r (i.e. pointlike objects). 5.2 Reason
(The following activities were borrowed from E&M TIPERs)
The diagrams show two charged objects and their separation. Rank the force that the left object exerts on the
right object from the STRONGEST to the WEAKEST force. Explain how you made the ranking. a) 1. 2. 3. RANKINGS: b) 1. 2. 3. RA...
