two identical, equally charged balls are suspended from strings 0.25 in length from a single point. The mass of the ball is 8e-4kg. The strings spread 36 degrees. The problem asks to find the charges.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is what should the force be when moving the ball at 18 degrees?Is it F at full distance or 4*F at half the distance?

Diagram is attached below.
