In the previous problem, what is the magnitude of the charge on each particle?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the previous problem was

Two point-like particles are placed 14.8 cm apart and are given equal and opposite charge. The first particle, of mass 41.0 g, has an initial acceleration of 1.40 m/s2 towards the second particle. What is the mass of the second particle if its initial acceleration towards the first is 1.05 m/s2?

and the answer to that was 54.7g

so i just dont know what I am doing wrong.

so i did this

q= sqrt(1/k d^2m1a1

my answer came to 1.2E-5C but it isnt right. I dont see where I went wrong
