Two pith balls below each have a mass of 5.0 g and equal charge. One pith ball is suspended by an insulating thread. The other is brought to x = 4.0 cm from the suspended ball. The suspended ball is now hanging with the thread forming an angle of 30.0 with the vertical. The ball is in equilibrium with FE, Fg, and FT. Calculate each of the following.
Fg = 0.049
FE = 0.028
What is the charge on the pith balls?
I got 1E-7 but that did not work for some reason, any ideas?
