Physics Problems

Can you please help me with the following problem?

Two charges separated by one meter exert 1-N forces on each other. If the charges are pushed to 1/4 meter separation, the force on each charge will be?

asked by Soly
  1. The inverse law applies. What is the reciprocal of 1/4 squared? As charges get closer, the force increases dramatically?
