calculate the distance between two protons if the repulsive force acting between them is equal to weight a proton
Asked by rishabhverma895334 | 01 Mar, 2024, 07:24: AM

Electrostatic repulsive force Fe between protons is

where K = 1/(4πεo ) = 9 × 109 N m2 C-2 is Coulomb's constant , q = 1.602 × 10-19 C is charge on proton and d is the distance between protons.

If elecrostatic repulsive force is equal to weight of proton then

Fe = Fg

Hence if protons are separated by a distance ~ 12 cm , then repulsive electrostatic force between protons equal weight of a proton.
