Two tiny beads are 25 cm apart with no other charges or fields present

Question: Two tiny beads are 25 cm apart with no other charges or fields present. Bead A carries 10 µC of charge and bead B carries 1 µC. Which one of the following statements is true about the magnitudes of the electric forces on these beads?

1-The force on B is 10 times the force on A.
2-The force on B is 100 times the force on A.
3-The force on A is 100 times the force on B.
4-The force on A is 10 times the force on B.
5-The force on A is exactly equal to the force on B.

Answer: The correct answer is (B) The force on A is exactly equal to the force on B. Two tiny beads are 25 cm apart with no other charges or fields present.

Bead A carries 10 µC of charge and bead B carries 1 µC. The statement that is true about the magnitudes of the electric forces on these beads is the force on A is exactly equal to B.
