Introduction: Two Identical Conducting Spheres
More Details: Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each other with an electrostatic force of -0.5984 N when separated by 50 cm, center-to-center. The
spheres are then connected by a thin conducting wire. When the wire is removed, the spheres repel each other with an electrostatic force of 0.1298 N. What were the
initial charges on the spheres? Since one is negative and you cannot tell which is positive or negative, there are two solutions.
