A small sphere of mass m = 7.50 g and charge
q1 = 32.0 nC is attached to the end of a string and hangs vertically as shown in
the figure. A second charge of equal mass and charge q2 = –58.0 nC is located a
distance d = 2.00 cm below the first charge.
(a) Find the tension in the string.
(b) If the string can withstand a maximum tension of 0.180 N, what is the
smallest value d can have before the string breaks?
