Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[F=k\frac{q_{1}q_{2}}{r^2}\] So if double the distance, \[F=k\frac{q_{1}q_{2}}{2^2}\] \[F=k\frac{q_{1}q_{2}}{4}\] Force is 4 times as low

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The electrostatic force would decrease by (1/(2^2)) or 1/4 of the original force.
