Two identical small metal spheres are separated by 1.00 × 105 m and exert an 18.9-N repulsive force on each other. A wire is connected between the spheres and then removed. The spheres now repel each other, exerting a 22.5-N force. Assume both charges are positive.
1. Determine the total charge of this system.
q =______ (units)
2. Determine the charges of the spheres before the connection.
q1, q2 = ______ C
.The spheres had the same total charge before the wire was attached. If the two spheres had charges q1 and q2, then: q1 +... View the full answer
- total charge 7+3=10 c
