# A charge of #-2 C# is at #(6 , -5 )# and a charge of #-3 C# is at #(3, 5 ) #. If both coordinates are in meters, what is the force between the charges?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

The distance formula for Cartesian coordinates is

Where

Let

Hence the distance between the two charges is

The electrostatic force between two charges is given by

Where

and its value is

magnitudes of the charges and

Here

Since the force is positive therefore the force is repullsive.
