Two point charges having charges q1=5 µC and q2=7 µC and masses m1=2 grams and m2=3 grams, respectively, are released (in deep space) from rest when they are r=21 cm apart. Determine how fast each charge will be moving when they are very far apart frome each other.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 4, 2020, 2:37 am ad1c9bdddf
To calculate this, we will use electrostatic potential energy.
Now, we know that Epot=Ekin, because energy is conserved, and the potential energy of the system will equal the amount of work required to ...
The solution provides detailed work how to solve the problem based on energy conservation and momentum conservation.
