Question 2

The electrostatic force on a small sphere of charge 0.4 μC due to another small sphere of charge − 0.8 μC in air is 0.2 N.

(a) What is the distance between the two spheres?

(b) What is the force on the second sphere due to the first?

Answer

** (a) **Electrostatic force on the first sphere, *F* = 0.2 N

Charge on this sphere, *q*_{1} = 0.4 μC = 0.4 × 10^{−6 }C

Charge on the second sphere, *q*_{2 }= − 0.8 μC = − 0.8 × 10^{−6 }C

Electrostatic force between the spheres is given by the relation,

Where, ∈_{0} = Permittivity of free space

The distance between the two spheres is 0.12 m.

**(b) **Both the spheres attract each other with the same force. Therefore, the force on the second sphere due to the first is 0.2 N.
