    electrostatic force????

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Two very small spheres are initially neutral and separated by a distance of 0.50 m. Suppose that 6.2 x 1013 electrons are removed from one sphere and placed on the other. What is the magnitude of the electrostatic force that acts on each sphere?,

    2. Relevant equations
    Each electron carries an amount of charge with magnitude e=1.6*10^-19

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Q2. Two particles, with identical positive charges and a separation of 3.80 x 10-2 m, are released from rest. Immediately after the release, particle 1 has an acceleration a1 whose magnitude is 6.71 x 103 m/s2, while particle 2 has an acceleration a2 whose magnitude is 9.64 x 103 m/s2. Particle 1 has a mass of 7.46 x 10-6 kg. Find (a) the charge on each particle and (b) the mass of particle 2.

    2. Relevant equations

    Re: electrostatic force????

    Where are your attempts at the solution for both of these problems?
