I neeeeeeeeeed helppp pronto,

Measurements show that a honeybee in active flight can acquire an electrostatic charge as great as 93.0 pC
a. how many electrons must be transferred to produce this charge?

b.suppose 2 bees, each with a charge of 93.0pC, are separated by a distance of 1.09cm. Treating the bees as point charges, find the magnitude of the electrostatic force experienced by the bees.

  • physics -

    a. number=charge/e where e is the charge on one electron.
    b. Use coulombs force equation.
