Two small silver spheres, each with a mass of 12.0 g, are separated by 1.00 m. Calculate the fraction of the electrons in one sphere that must be transferred to the other to produce an attractive force of 3.00e4 N (about 3 tons) between the spheres. (The number of electrons per atom of silver is 47, and the number of atoms per gram is Avogadro's number divided by the molar mass of silver, 107.87 g/mol.)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any help would be appreciated....i'm so confused with this material right now

I'm guessing you will use coulombs law of course (F=k[q1q2/r^2])
