Two tiny conducting spheres are identical and carry charges of -21.6 mC and +51.4 mC. They are separated by a distance of 2.43 cm. What is the magnitude of the force that each sphere experiences?
when i multiplied the constant by the remaining number (after fixing my cm to m) I came up with 15246...
which I'm fairly confident is incorrect....
I don't know why I keep getting the wrong numbers...I am also unsure of how to label my answer..that is if I ever figure it out...
okay,
so I tried it yet again... just calculating numbers... I used your setup that you have posted here....
I came up with -16968.81 N
Is it possible that this could be the answer?? Or am I still missing something somewhere with my calculations?
I'm not going to plug in the answer to the site until I'm more confident, because I really can't afford to lose the points...
