Homework Help: physics

Posted by Jordan on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 at 7:19pm.

Two spherical objects are separated by a distance of 2.41 x 10-3 m. The objects are initially electrically neutral and are very small compared to the distance between them. Each object acquires the same negative charge due to the addition of electrons. As a result, each object experiences an electrostatic force that has a magnitude of 4.18 x 10-21 N. How many electrons did it take to produce the charge on one of the objects?

Can you help at all? Please give me an idea where to start. Thank you.
