Question #1:

Use a major search engine (HotBot , Lycos, Alta Vista, Excite, etc.) to conduct an internet search in order to find some information on the physics of one of the following topics:

Once you have conducted a suitable search of your topic, write an organized summary of your findings in your own words. For the entire two points, the summary should also include the following features:

    (NOTE: as a possible shortcut to information, perhaps you could use our own GBS resources or simply go ask Jeeves.)

    Enjoy the search!


Question #2:

Two balloons are separated by a distance of 20-cm experience an electric force of 2.00 Newtons. If the charge on one of the balloons is doubled, and the charge on the second balloon is tripled, and the distance between them is doubled, then what is the new force acting upon the balloon? PSAYW
