Here q1:q2=1:3,


3q1=q2,


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


where k=9x109N-m2/C2


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


q2=2x10-6C


therefore the weak charge is 2micro C.

let charges be x,3x;


 


f=3x*x*9*10^9          =>x= 2 micro

If electric field at a point would vary as r^(-2.5) then would gauss law still be valid?
 
 
no gauss law will not be valid because gauss law is valid only when electric field varies as r^(-2)
 
Lokesh 4 months ago
 
For this you should go through the deduction of Gauss`s Law from Coulomb`s law. In Coulomb`s law the electric field itself varies as 1/r^2. Had that not been the case then we would have not...

A METAL SURFACE HAS A POSITIVE CHARGE OF 10-9 C HOW MANY ELECTRONS WOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE METAL SURFACE?
 
 
The elementary charge is 1.6x10^-19 . Thus to find the number of electrons removed from the surface divide the total charge by the elementary charge i.e. 10^-9/(1.6x10^-19) by using the...

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.
