Consider three indentical charged spheres each having charge q and mass m are suspended through a three equal strings of length l.
Let they are in equilibrium at the vertices of an equilateral triangle.
Total height of the triangle 'h' is and centroid of an equilateral triangle is
Consider the right angle traingle AEC
From the pythagoras theorem side AE is
From the figure,
Since, the three charges are identical possesing repulsive force outwards as shown in diagram
from the equillibrium system.
From (i) and (ii)
