A small spherical insulator of mass 1.90 10-2 kg and charge +0.600 µC is hung by a thin wire of negligible mass. A charge of −0.900 µC is held 0.150 m away from the sphere and directly to the right of it, so the wire makes an angle è with the vertical.
Find the angle è.
Find the tension in the wire

Again, as above, the horzontal electric force is equal to mg*tanTheta.
Draw the force diagram to demonstrate this.

tension = mg/ cosTheta
