Question
a) Find the ratio of the electrostatic to gravitational force between two electrons. (b) What is this ratio for two protons? (c) Why is the ratio different for electrons and protons?
1. $4.16 \times 10^{42}$
2. $1.24 \times 10^{36}$
3. The ratio of electrostatic force to the gravitational force for the electrons and protons is different since their masses are different.
