# Two similar and equal charges repel each other with force of ( 1.6 mathrm{N}, ) when placed ( 3 mathrm{m} ) apart. Strength of each charge is-

(A) ( 40 mu mathrm{C} )

(B) ( 20 mu mathrm{C} )

(C) ( 4 mu C )

(D) ( 2 mu mathrm{C} )

Solution

1.6=( frac{k q^{2}}{9} )

( frac{1 cdot 6 times 9}{9times10^{-9}}=9^{2} )

( 16 times 10^{-10} cdot 9^{2} )

( 9=4 times 10^{-5} )

( 9=40)
