Two charged bodies exert a 420 mN force on one another. What will be the force if the bodies are moved one third the distance apart? 35. How far apart must two electrons be if the force between them is to be 10 -12 N? [1.5 x 10 -8 m] 36. What is the magnitude of the force between an iron nucleus (26 protons) and its inner-most electron if the distance is 10 -2 Å ? 37.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
