Question

Two small, identical conducting spheres repel each other with a force of 0.035 N when they are 0.55 m apart. After a conducting wire is connected between the spheres and then removed, they repel each other with a force of 0.065 N. What is the original charge on each sphere? (Enter the magnitudes in C.)

Answer #1

Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each
other with an electrostatic force of -0.2848 N when
separated by 50 cm, center-to-center. The spheres are then
connected by a thin conducting wire. When the wire is removed, the
spheres repel each other with an electrostatic force of 0.0608
N. What were the initial charges on the spheres? Since one
is negative and you cannot tell which is positive or negative,
there are two solutions. Take the absolute value of...

Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each
other with an electrostatic force of -1.0112 N when separated by 50
cm, center-to-center. The spheres are then connected by a thin
conducting wire. When the wire is removed, the spheres repel each
other with an electrostatic force of 0.1165 N. What were the
initial charges on the spheres? Since one is negative and you

Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each
other with an electrostatic force of -0.3085 N when separated by 50
cm, center-to-center. The spheres are then connected by a thin
conducting wire. When the wire is removed, the spheres repel each
other with an electrostatic force of 0.4036 N. What were the
initial charges on the spheres? Since one is negative and you
cannot tell which is positive or negative, there are two
solutions.

(8c21p7) Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place,
attract each other with an electrostatic force of -0.4171
N when separated by 50 cm, center-to-center. The
spheres are then connected by a thin conducting wire. When the wire
is removed, the spheres repel each other with an electrostatic
force of 0.0109 N. What were the initial charges on the
spheres? Since one is negative and you cannot tell which is
positive or negative, there are two solutions. Take the absolute

Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each
other with an electrostatic force of 0.107 N when their
center-to-center separation is 46.6 cm. The spheres are then
connected by a thin conducting wire. When the wire is removed, the
spheres repel each other with an electrostatic force of 0.0321 N.
Of the initial charges on the spheres, with a positive net charge,
what was (a) the negative charge on one of them
and (b) the positive charge on the...
