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?
