Two identical conducting spheres, fixed in place, attract each other with an electrostatic force of 0.107 N when their center-to-center separation is 46.6 cm. The spheres are then connected by a thin conducting wire. When the wire is removed, the spheres repel each other with an electrostatic force of 0.0321 N. Of the initial charges on the spheres, with a positive net charge, what were (a) the negative charge on one of them and (b) the positive charge on the other? (Suppose the negative charge has smaller magnitude.)
