Problem 4: A charge of q = - 4.0 × 10-6 is placed in an electric field and experiences a force of 5.5 N [E] a) What is the magnitude and direction of the electric field at the point where charge q is located? b) If charge q is removed, what is the magnitude and direction of the force exerted on a charge of - 2q at the same location as charge q?
The force of repulsion of two +1.00 Coulomb charges held 1.00 meter apart is 9 billion Newton. This is an incredibly large force that compares in magnitude to the weight of more than 2000 jetliners. This problem was chosen primarily for its conceptual message. Objects simply do not acquire charges on the order of 1.00 Coulomb.
If you feel that you have mastered these topics through the work you did in Physics 1, you do not need to work these problems. 1. (easy) A point charge (q 1) has a magnitude of 3x10-6 C. A second charge (q 2) has a magnitude of -1.5x10-6 C and is located 0.12m from the first charge. Determine the electrostatic force each charge exerts on the ...

Electrostatics is a branch of physics that studies electric charges at rest.. Since classical physics, it has been known that some materials such as amber attract lightweight particles after rubbing.The Greek word for amber, ήλεκτρον, or electron, was the source of the word 'electricity'.Electrostatic phenomena arise from the forces that electric charges exert on each other.
Practice Problems: Coulomb's Law Click here to see the solutions. 1. (easy) A point charge (q 1) has a magnitude of 3x10-6 C. A second charge (q 2) has a magnitude of -1.5x10-6 C and is located 0.12m from the first charge. Determine the electrostatic force each charge exerts on the other.
Electrostatic Force and Electric Charge Electrostatic Force (charges at rest ): • Electrostatic force can be attractive • Electrostatic force can be repulsive • Electrostatic force acts through empty space • Electrostatic force much stronger than gravity • Electrostatic forces are inverse square law forces ( proportional to 1/r 2)
The magnitude of the electrostatic force is described by Coulomb's Law. Coulomb's Law states that the magnitude of the electrostatic force (F e) between two objects is equal to a constant, k, multiplied by each of the two charges, q 1 and q 2, and divided by the square of the distance between the charges (r 2).
