Problem 3P

Two pellets, each with a charge of 1 microcoulomb (10?6 C), are located 3 cm (0.03 m) apart. Show that the electric force between them is 10N. What would be the mass of an object that would experience this same force in Earth’s gravitational field?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 3P The electric force between two point charge is 2 F = k(q 1 /2 ) Here q a1d q ma2nitude of charges,d is the separation between charges and k is constant. Where k = 9 × 10 N.m/C 2 6 The electric force between q a1d q bo2h are equal to 1 × 10 C . F = k(q q /d )2 1 2 9 12 4 F = 9 × 10 × 10 /(9 × 10 ) F = 10 N The mass of an object that experience the same force on earth’s gravitational field F = mg m = F/g m = 10 N/9.8 m/s 2 m = 1.02 kg
