Help on problem for physics point charges

  1. Apr 6, 2013 #1
    Two point charges, one measuring +5μC and the other -6μC are placed .02m apart. What is the force between the two charges? Which point charge exerts the greater force on the other? Is it an attracting or repelling force? 1μC= 1x 10 to the negative sixthC
