**1. Homework Statement**

We did a lab using two balls (one with a neutral charge and one with a negative charge). The independent variables were distance between the two balls and charge, while the dependent variable was force. We were to hang the neutral ball so that the negatively charged ball could affect the distance. We moved the negatively charged ball closer to the neutrally charged one, and usually a repulsion occurred. We found that the force vs. distance graph was directly proportional and the force vs. charge graph was inversely proportional. What do the slopes of each graph represent?

**2. Homework Equations**

Force/Distance = ?

Force/Charge = ?

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Force's units divided by distance's units = N/m.

Then for the charge graph, I'm not sure what the units of charge even are.
