Homework Help: Charge Question

  1. Dec 14, 2007 #1
    Hey I need some help figuring out this problem
    Diagram is attached below

    Two charges are arranged as shown below. Particle q1 is fixed in it's position but q2 is free to move. Assume the two particles start at rest with seperation near zero. The mass of q2 is m.

    a. Create an equation that will give the acceleration of q2 in terms of the seperation, d.

    b. Create an equation that will give the velocity of q2 in terms of time, t.

    I'm afraid I won't be able to help you until your attachment is approved by one of our mentors. However, note that also you must show some work before we can help you with homework problems; forum rules, I'm afraid.

    So, what have you tried thus far?
