## Homework Statement

I have a problem as follows: "Two charges of identical mass hang from the same point by a thread of length l. One has charge q and the other has charge 2q. Find the angle each mass makes with the vertical."

Now, I got an answer and found that each mass will make the same angle with respect to the vertical. Is this true? When I imagine this scenario in my head it seems like their angles would be different. Are the angles equal for both masses when the masses are equal, regardless of the charges?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

There is an assumption that the masses are "large" and the charges are "small".
