Question: the figure below shows the positions of two alpha particles...

Question details

The figure below shows the positions of two alpha particles (each alpha particle has a charge +2e and an electron. a) Draw a clear and neat free-body diagram for either sphere at equilibrium.

b) Determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant force on the electron. (Hint: Choose the +x-axis along the line from the electron to the right-hand  particle.)

c) Determine the acceleration of the electron due to the net force acting on it. The mass of the electron is me=9.11×10^-31 kg.
