Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Electric field varies as 1/r^2, where r is the distance from the charge. So scale the field for a change of r from 0.10 m to 0.33 m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The electric field strength of a point charge Q at a distance r from Q is given by \[ E = \frac{kQ}{r^2} \] where k is a positive constant. We know that when r = 0.1 m that E = 154. That is \[ 154 = \frac{kQ}{0.1^2} \ \implies kQ = 154(0.01) = 1.54 \] Now use that to find the electric field, E, when r = 0.33. That is, use \[ E = \frac{kQ}{r^2} \] You now know kQ and r for this new situation.
