Thanks Mr. Charles Link. In the first solution i get the q12 -6*10-6q1 -16*10-12 = 0
and for second one i get q12 - 6*10-6q1-16*106 = 0.
My question is why i get different powers for the term involving -16.

"At a distance of 1.5 fermi, the nuclear force becomes maximum and remains attractive in nature. However, at a distance of 0.5 fermi, the nuclear force suddenly becomes repulsive. "
Revered Members,

Capacitors are connected in series. So the effective capacitance is
1/Cs = 1/C + 1/2C + 1/3C
= 11/6C
Cs = 6C/11
Now substitute this value for C for the equation V = 11/6(Q/C) you ll get Q/C which is nothing but V or V1
Hope you got it now

Revered members,
Conductors have positive temperature coefficient of resistance, that is , their resistance increases with temperature. While for insulators and semi conductors, the resistance decreases with increase in temperature, what we call negative temperature coefficient of resistance...
From the graph plotted between Mass Number and Binding Energy per Nucleon, we infer the BE/A is stable for mass numbers between 20 and 60 (approximately) and decreases for A>60. Similarly the BE/A is very less for lighter nuclei, say, Helium.

ok. Now i am confronted with the magnitude of test charge and source charge. Should they be of same magnitude? I presume the test charge is unit positive charge. But i can't get an idea of magnitude of source charge, in the concept of electric potential
