Problem: At what distance is the electrostatic force between two electrons equal to the weight of one?

FREE Expert Solution

Both electrons are negatively charged.

If they interact, they will repel each other with a force that can be given by Coulomb's law as:

FE=k(e2r2)

An electron has weight given by:

W=mg
