🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Douberly's class at UGA.

Solution: Two positively charged particles are first brought close together and then released. Once released, the repulsion between particles causes them to move away from each other.Does the potential energy of the two particles prior to release increase or decrease as the distance between them is increased?

Problem

Two positively charged particles are first brought close together and then released. Once released, the repulsion between particles causes them to move away from each other.

Does the potential energy of the two particles prior to release increase or decrease as the distance between them is increased?

Solution

We’re being asked to determine what happens to the potential energy of two positively-charged particles as the distance between them is increased.


When the two positively-charged particles are brought close together and then released, the repulsive forces between them causes them to move away from each other.
