for this coulomb's law question, why can't i solve by splitting e into Ex and Ey and then combining given Ey is zero? I get an answer 10^-30 instead of 10^-10.
The solution here says to figure it out by using cos theta as a factor, but I don't understand why I cannot just break it up into components? Figure shows two charge particles on an x acis -q on... more
Why can't charged objects exert electrostatic forces on heavier objects?
We know that, for example, amber rubbed with fur attracts bits and pieces of straw, paper, Styrofoam, etc. which are all light objects. Why don't they attract heavier objects, likewise?
Are the Maxwell's equations enough to derive the law of Coulomb?
