Two point charges exert on each other a force F when they are placed r distance apart in air. When they are placed R distance apart in medium of dielectric constant K theyexert the same force . The distance R equals

Dear student
1/4 π ε0 q1* q2/ r2 = 1/4 π ε0 q1*q2 / K*R2
1/r2 = 1/ K*R2
R = r √k

F=kq1q2/r^2
so if r=>r/2
let the new force be F'
F' = kq1q2/(r/2)^2
F'=4kq1q2/r^2
F'=4F

so force changes to 4F

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to your problem.

1/4 π ε0 q1* q2/ r2 = 1/4 π ε0 q1*q2 / K*R2
1/r2 = 1/ K*R2
R = r √k

Thanks and Regards
