1 Consider a point charge q = 1.0 .C, point ,A at distance d1=2.0 m from q, and point B
1at distance d2=1.0 m. (a) If A and B are diametrically opposite each other, as in Fig. 24- a,
what is the electric potential difference VA - VB? (b) What is that electric potential difference
if A and B are located as in Fig.b

8 Two protons in an atomic nucleus are typically separated by a distance of 2 x 10&quot;15 m. The
electric repulsion force between the protons is huge, but the attractive nuclear force is even
stronger and keeps the nucleus from bursting apart. What is the magnitude of the electric force
between two protons separated by 2.00 x 10&quot;15 m?

(a) Two protons in a molecule are separated by 3.80 x 10&quot;10 m. Find the electric
force exerted by one proton on the other. (b) How does the magnitude of this force
compare to the magnitude of the gravitational force between the two protons? (c)
What If? What must be the charge to- mass ratio of a particle if the magnitude of the
gravitational force between two of these particles equals the magnitude of electric
force between them?
