Coulomb's law: F = k q1 q2/r^2 E = force on unit charge E = F/1 = k q /r^2 = 9*10^9 * 8*10^-6 /4 1.8 *10^4 Newtons/Coulomb like charges repel so in direction away from positive charge

change in potential energy due to fall = m g (10+x) storage of potential energy in spring = (1/2) k x^2 so (1/2) k x^2 = m g (10 + x) you have everything, solve quadratic for x then: distance below bridge = 10 + x

If you found this question in a physics book, watch the wording. If they asked for "distance", then Ms Sue told you how to do it. If they ask for "displacement", that is the magnitude of the vector between the start and the finish which is zero.

I guess you mean 20 degrees above horizontal. u = horizontal velocity, does not change = 17 cos 20 so a) (17 cos 20)4 b) u = 17 cos 20 At the highest point, there is no vertical velocity, so the answer is u = 17 cos 20
