Two identical conducting spheres each having a radius of 0.500 cm are connected by a light, 2.00-m-long conducting wire. A charge of 60.0 mC is placed on one of the conductors. Assume the surface distribution of charge on each sphere is uniform. Determine the tension in the wire.

The charge will obviously be split 1/2 and 1/2 between the spheres. By Gaussian considerations you can treat each sphere as a point charge. Now use Coulomb's law to find the force between them. The force must be equal to the magnitude of the tension of the wire.
