How close must two electrons be if the electric force between them is equal to the weight of either at the earth's surface?

  • physics -

    Set m g = k e^2/R and solve for R.
    m = electron mass = 9.11*10^-31 kg
    g = 9.8 m/s^2
    e = 1.60*10^-19 C = electron charge
    k = Coulomb constant = 8.99*10^9 N-m/C^2
    The answer (R) will be in meters
