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

a charge is placed in the middle of a face of a cube. Find the flux through each face.
The total flux through any closed surface is zero.. As per Gauss law, total flux is q/E and for a cube there are 6 faces and hence from each face we can divide flux by 6. Thanks &...

A certain charge Q is devided in two parts q & Q-q .for max force between them.find ratio q/Q
using A.M-G.M inequality: for maximum force between two charges q(Q-q) should be maximum accordingly q=Q-q ie 2q=Q or q/Q=1/2. WITH REGARDS SIDDHARTH GUPTA
