An electron is released a short distance above the surface of the Earth. A secondelectron directly below it exerts an electrostatic force on the first electron which just cancels the gravitational force due to Earth. What is the separation of thesetwo electrons ?This problem describes an electric balancing act. The magnitude of the repulsiveforce between these two electrons must
equal
the weight of an electron,
