There are two identical, positively charged conducting spheres
fixed in space. The spheres are 32.0 cm apart (center to center)
and repel each other with an electrostatic force of F1 = 0.0750 N.
Then, a thin conducting wire connects the spheres, redistributing
the charge on each sphere. When the wire is removed the spheres
still repel but with a force of F2 = 0.100 N. Using this
information, find the initial charge on each sphere, q1 and q2 if
initially...

There are two identical, positively charged conducting spheres
fixed in space. The spheres are 47.8 cm apart (center to center)

There are two identical, positively charged conducting spheres
fixed in space. The spheres are 34.8 cm apart (center to center)
and repel each other with an electrostatic force of ?1=0.0675 N . A
thin conducting wire connects the spheres, redistributing the
charge on each sphere. When the wire is removed, the spheres still
repel, but with a force of ?2=0.115 N . The Coulomb force constant
is ?=1/(4??0)=8.99×109 N⋅m2/C2 .
Using this information, find the initial charge on each sphere,...
