Homework Help: College Physics II

Posted by Scott on Sunday, January 23, 2011 at 8:31pm.

Identical isolated conducting spheres 1 and 2 have equal charges and are separated by a distance that is large compared with their diameters. The electrostatic force acting on sphere 2 due to sphere 1 is F. Suppose now that a third identical sphere 3, having an insulating handle and initially neutral, is touched first to sphere 1, then to sphere 2, and finally removed. The electrostatic force that now acts on sphere 2 has magnitude F'. What is the ratio F'/F?
