two spherical conductors B &C having equal radii and carrying equal charges with them repel eachother with a force F when kept at a small distance apart . a third spherical conductor A having same charge as that of B but uncharged is brought in contact with B and then with C and finally removed away from both . what is the new force of repulsion between B & C ?

Let B and C have charge Q each initially and are seperated by r distance.
∴ Coulomb force between them, F=

Now an identical uncharged spherical conductor A is brought in contact with B. They will share equal charge among themselves.
Charge on A=
