Expert Answer:

Two small balls having equal positive charge q Coulomb and are suspended by two insulating strings of equal length l metre. 
As the whole ste up is taken to the satellite in space there is no gravity ....(Given) 
 
Thus, mg = 0 
Thus, due to electrostatic force of repulsion, the two strings along with ball will now be in horizontal direction. 
 
 
Thus, the angle between the two strings will be 180° 
 
Now, 
the tension in each string will be equal to force of repulsion 
 
F space equals space fraction numerator k cross times q cross times q over denominator r squared end fraction
H e r e comma space r space equals space 2 calligraphic l space

k space equals space fraction numerator 1 over denominator 4 pi epsilon subscript 0 end fraction space
F space equals space space fraction numerator 1 over denominator 4 pi epsilon subscript 0 end fraction space cross times fraction numerator q squared over denominator open parentheses 2 calligraphic l close parentheses squared space end fraction space equals space fraction numerator 1 over denominator 4 pi epsilon subscript 0 end fraction space cross times fraction numerator q squared over denominator 4 calligraphic l squared end fraction space
