1. Hi

Calculate
a) the force between 2 charges of +1.4nC and +1.6nC on point conductors 40cm apart in air.
b)What size of charge on a third point conductor placed midway between the first two conductors would result in doubling of the magnitude of the force on the 1.4nC charge?

My answer for the first part was 1.2586x10^-7

2. Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

Hi,
you know the force in part a) is
So you want this force to be doubled when we introduce a charge q3 between q1 and q2

now you can solve this for
