Force between two point charges

Factor of k for air is 8.93x10(power)9 Nm(power)2/C(power)2

Calculate force between charges of +150.0(micro)C and
-75.0(micro)C that are 0.600 m apart in air.

* I am not able to use the proper symbols for (power), or (micro)

Solution Preview

You are given with two charges one is + and the other is -ve. Thus the nature of the force is attractive. It is given by,

F = k (q1 x q2)/distance square

here ...

Solution Summary

Calculate the force between two opposite charges.
