  1. k = 9*10^9 approx as I remember

    F = k Q1 Q2 / d^2
    = 9*10^9 * 2.4*10^-6 * 2.4*10^-6 / 7*10^-1
    = [9 * 2.4^2 / 7 ] * 10 ^-2

  6. The choices are
    Fe= 9.0*10^-2N
    Fe= 9.0*10^-1N
    Fe= 6.0*10^-1N
    Fe= 19.0*10^-1N

  10. Do u know how to do this question
    Two small identical metal spheres,A and B, on insulated stands, are each given a charge of +2.0*10^-6 Coulomb. The distance between the spheres is 2.0*10^-1 meter. Calculate the magnitude of the electrostatic force that the charge on sphere A exerts on the charge on sphere B.

  11. 0.07405 N / 7*10^-1 = 0.1057 = 1.05*10^-1 N
    still do not agree.

  13. That is really the same question with different numbers
    k Q1 Q2 / d^2
    k = 9*10^9
    Q1 = Q2 = 2*10^-6 Coulomb
    d = 0.2 meter
    F = 9*10^9 * 4*10^-12 / 0.04
    = 900 *10^-3 = 0.900 N
