Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

What is the net force exerted by these two charges on a third charge q3 = 55.0 nC placed between q1and q2 at x3 = -1.130 m ?

q3=

At what separation is the electrostatic force between a +11.9 μC point charge and a +29.2 μC point charge equal in magnitude to 1.95 N?

r=

F = 1.95 = kq1q2/r^2

r^2 = 9x10^9*11.9*29.2x10^-12/1.95 = 1.604

r = 1.27 m

When two identical ions are separated by a distance of 2.0×10−10m , the electrostatic force each exerts on the other is 5.5×10−9N. How many electrons are missing from each ion?

Ne=

F = kq^2/r^2

q = sqrt(F/K)*r  = sqrt(5.5x10^-9/9x10^9) *2.0x10^-10 = 7.82x10^-10*2x10^-10

=1.56x10^-19

Ne = q/1.6x10-19 = 1

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
