You and a friend are spending the weekend making up missed lab experiments. You are on to second semester material and are studying the electrostatic interaction of two charges. You notice that two charges are exerting a certain force on one another. If the distance between two electric charges doubles, then the force they exert on each other changes by how much?

Please refer to attachment for full questions.
