Hanging from threads are two charged balls made of pith (a very light, spongy material that comes from inside the stems of certain plants). The balls each have a mass of 0.100 g and a charge of the same magnitude q and are attracted toward each other, as shown in the figure below. (Take θ = 18.9° and r = 1.82 cm.)

Question: What is the magnitude of the electric force?


F = k (q x q/r^2)

Please Help. I could not figure out how to solve with out q.

use the equilibrium for on charge ...

ie .. vertical component of tension balances weight and horizontal balances electric force

you'll get charge ...
