Two 3.2 g point charges on 1.0-m-long threads repel each other after being equally charged, as shown in the figure.(https://session.masteringphysics.com/problemAsset/1384363/9/25_P59_sf=2.jpg)
[Moderator note: Added back the Problem Statement header and inserted the figure to make it visible without following a link]
Assume that θ = 16 ∘.
- Although this problem is asking for q, I am just curious in knowing how to find the distance between the two charges. I tried using law of sines, but can you assume that they are directly across from each other which would be forming a triangle?
The Attempt at a Solution
- using law of sines i found the distance to be .55 m[/B]
