Two conducting spheres have identical radii. Initially they have charges of opposite sign and unequal magnitudes with the magnitude of the positive charge larger than the magnitude of the negative charge. They attract each other with a force of 0.162N when separated by 0.3m. The spheres are suddenly connected by a thin conducting wire, which is then removed. Note the spheres repel each other with a force of 0.041. What is the magnitude of the postive charge? Answer in units of C.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I tried using the formula Fe=(kq1q2)/(d squared) but i was unsuccessful...
