Physics - charge on sphere

posted by .

Two 2.0g spheres are attached to each end of a silk thread 1.20m long. The spheres are given identical charges and the midpoint of the thread is then suspended from a point on the ceiling. The spheres come to rest in equilibrium, with their centers 15cm apart. What is the magnitude of the charge on each sphere?
