Bubbles and Charges

Homework Statement


Find the amount of charge required to double the radius of a bubble of radius r and surface tension T.


Homework Equations


Increase in surface energy of bubble = T ΔA



The Attempt at a Solution


I've tried equating the increase in surface energy to the work done by the Coulomb force, but I'm finding a lack of information. Do I just assume that the charge is some distance away from the bubble? Then what will be the integration limits for F . dr?
