You may want to reference (Pages 165 - 166) Section 5.1 while completing this problem.


Use the following equations:

  • Fel = k(Q1Q2/d2), where k = 8.99 x 109N m2 / C2
  • Fg = G(m1m2/d2), where G (gravitational constant) = 6.67410-11 N m2 / kg2


Calculate the electrostatic force of repulsion for two protons separated by 93.0 pm. The charge of a proton is q = 1.6 x 10-19 C. Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units
