# Electron Suspended Between the Surface of The Earth

## Homework Statement

An Electron remains suspended between the Earth (assumed nueutral) and a fixed positive point charge, at a distance of 6.37 m from the point charge.
Determine the charge for this to happen.

## Homework Equations

g= 9.8 m/s^2
Coulomb constant = 8/98755e9 N* m^2/C^2
Kc= 8.99e9
Fe= Kc (q1*q2)/r^2
