1. Homework Statement
Two Charged spheres are positioned on a horizontal, frictionless insulating surface, as shown below.
I attached the image at the bottom of the post.
2. Homework Equations
Coulombs Law and F=ma
3. The Attempt at a Solution
I plugged in ((8.99 x 10^9)(5.0 x 10^7)(5.0 x 10^7))/(1.25)^2
Once I got the answer I used F=ma to find the acceleration which is 9.59 x 10^2 m/s
I believe this is the correct answer. I was wondering if one of the spheres is negative would I go about answering the question in the same way. Or would I have to factor in other things.
