Physics

In a thundercloud there may be an electric
charge of 18 C near the top of the cloud and
−18 C near the bottom of the cloud.
If these charges are separated by about
7 km, what is the magnitude of the elec-
tric force between these two sets of charges?
The electric force constant is 8.98755 ×
109 N · m2/C2.
Answer in units of N.
