Three identical small Styrofoam balls of mass
1.53 g are suspended from a ﬁxed point by
three nonconducting threads, each with a
length of 56.4 cm and negligible mass. At
equilibrium the three balls form an equilateral triangle with sides of 31 cm.
What is the common charge carried by
each ball? The acceleration of gravity is
and the value of Coulomb’s constant
is 8.98755 × 10
N · m2
