Two unlike charges separated by a distance of 1m attract each other with a force 0.108N. If the charges are in the ratio 1:3, the weak charge is?A. 2 micro C ,B. 4 micro C, C. 6 micro C, D. 5 microC

Answers : (4)


Here q1:q2=1:3,


we know F=k(q1q2)/(r2)

where k=9x109N-m2/C2

thus 0.108=9x109(3(q2)2)/12


therefore the weak charge is 2micro C.

let charges be x,3x;


f=3x*x*9*10^9          =>x= 2 micro

two charges 4q and −q are placed a distance r apart.A charge Q is placed exactly mid−way between them.What willbe the value of Q so that charge 4q experiences no net force?
first thing given charges are opposite si they will attract each other Q should be positive so it will repel 4q so force will be balanced now 4q*Q/(r/2)^2=4q*q/r^2 =>16Q=4q =>Q=q/4...

If there is no net charge on Q (it is in equilibrium) then the two forces should be equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. Therefore, 4Q*q/(r/2)^2 should be 4q^2/r^2. So, Q will be...
