From Coulomb's law, the force acting on a point charge is a result of the presence of a second charge.
Object A has a charge of +2 µC, and object B has a charge of +6 µC. Which statement is true about the electric forces on the objects?
(a) FAB = -3FBA
(b) 3FAB = -FBA
(c) FAB = 3FBA
(d) 3FAB = FBA
(e) FAB = -FBA
(f) FAB = FBA
