8. Electric field lines arising from two small charged particles P and Q.
Consider the following two statements:
i.The charge on P is smaller than the charge on Q.
ii.The electrostatic force on P is smaller than that on Q.
Which of the above statements are true?
A) Only i. B) Only ii. C) Both i and ii.

the answer is A can you explain why its correct please and why B & C is wrong

  • physics -

    The force on p and q is repulsive. F-kpq/d^2. this is the same force on equal charge, opposing.
