Question on magnetic attraction and repulsion?

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    This is going to be quite hard to phrase but here goes.

    Is there a formula/equation to find the acceleration of two of the same-charge particles, away from eachother, taking into account field intensity and mass?

    And the same question for attraction between two oppositely charged particles?

    Aren't you talking about point charges?
