Electro Petro. You recently acquired a vintage Aston Martin automobile and you ponder the possibility of placing static charge on gasoline when filling at the pump. (a). Explain if and how this is possible (b). Given a tiny drop of gasoline has a mass of 8.0 x 10^(-15)kg and a positive charge of 4.8x10^-19 C, determine the weight of the gasoline drop. (c). If the gasoline drop is subjected to an upward electric field of magnitude 6.0x10^5 N/C, determine the magnitude of the electrostatic force exerted on the gasoline drop (d). Determine the magnitude of the acceleration of the gasoline

I'm not exactly sure about (a). But isn't (b) simply mg? Or do I have to factor in the positive charge somehow? Including that piece information specifically at (b). didn't make sense to me. (c). I know that electric force due to a field on a particle is F=kQq/r^2. But in this scenario I'm a bit confused because I'm not given a certain distance and I only have one charge. (d). Could I solve this part simply by using F=ma once I calculate the F from part (c)?

b) Would be mg which is mass in kg times gravitational force. For c and d. We would use the formula \[F _{e}=qE=ma\] For a you would need to research it.

Fe is electric force, q is charge. E is electric field. m is mass in kg and a is acceleration

Ahh! I see my stupid mistake. They already gave us E, so basically Q and r are already accounted for. Thus F=qE. Much thanks! :)

Yep. Nice job figuring it out. Good luck on the rest.
