Two iron spheres each have a volume of 10 cm^3 and a mass of 78g. How many electrons must be placed on each sphere so that the electrostatic force of repulsion between them just balances the force of gravitational attraction? Assume the distance between the spheres is more than 2 meters.

    Thank you Ann! I had the equations and really was closing in on the answer... (stopping for 23 s is what really got me confused) in either case, the displacement for a) is 888 m ! Now I'll try to calculate (b). Thank you much!
