1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two charges attract each other with a force of 1.5 N. What will be the force if the distance between them is reduced to one-ninth of its original value? F=1.5 N 2. Relevant equations F=k|q1||q2|/r^2 3. The attempt at a solution 1.5 N = k |q1||q2|/(1/9)r^2 I don't think I am setting this up right, but would I multiply 1.5N by 1/9 and by the constant k? Thanks in advance!
