Question: 8c21p7 7 two identical conducting spheres fixed in place attract...

Question details

(8c21p7 7) Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each other with an electrostatic force of-0.5984 N when separated by 50 cm, center-to-center. The spheres are then connected by a thin conductim wire. when the wire is removed, the spheres repel each other with an electrostatic force of 0.1298 N. What were the initial charges on the spheres? Since one is negative and you cannot tell which is positive or negetive, there are two solutions. Take the absolute value of the charges and enter the smaller value here.
