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.

i think it is 2 microC

let charges be x,3x;


f=3x*x*9*10^9          =>x= 2 micro

charge=q=10^-9 C , according to quantisation of charge we have, q = ne , n=no. of electrons, e=charge on 1 electron i.e. 1.6 * 10^-19 C, then n=q/e= 6.25 * 10^-29 here * stands for multiply....

according to quantisation of charge, q =ne, q=charge ,n= no. of electrons, e= charge on an electron i.e. 1.6*10^-19, So n=q/e= 6.25*10^-29 * stands for multiply that`s all.

no, the answer is 21.4 cm. i dunno how to do it but i think its got sumthn to do with the u-v method of finding focal length in which the lens is shifted to get two distinct images, one...
