Two small spheres of mass m are suspended from weightless strings of length L. The suspension points


Two paltry globes of magnitude m are hanging from weightless strings of tediousness L. The deprivation points are a remoteness S separate. The globes are abounding as a capacitor; that is, Q is removed from one globe and placed on the other. The globes gain advance internal each other as shown in Figure P1.1.

(a) By establishing for equilibrium the fibre of ruefulness and the Coulomb fibre, ascertain the deprivation intention α as a administration of Q.

(b) What is the voltage between the globes as a administration of Q?

 (c) What is the paltryest intention α can take (for nonzero Q)?
