A small plastic sphere with a charge of -5.0 is near another small plastic sphere with a charge of -15 .


Part A -

If the spheres repel one another with a force of magnitude 8.3×10−4 , what is the distance between the spheres?

Express your answer using two significant figures.

  • physics -

    force= k q1*q2/distance^2

    You just have to cite units when you givenumbers.
