Coulomb’s Law of Electrostatic Interaction (Video)

In this problem we must use Coulomb’s Law to find the charge of two spheres. You do not know the charge or each sphere, but you are given the total charge of both. You are also given the distance between then and the magnitude of the electrostatic force each exerts on the other. The solution requires solving a quadratic equation.
