Electric field of point charge

At a distance r1 from a point charge, the magnitude of the electric field created by the charge is 248 N/C. At a distance r2 from the charge, the field has a magnitude of 132 N/C. What is the ratio r2/r1?

Solution Summary

The solution shows detailed calculation of the electric field by a point charge using Coulomb's law.
