Electromagnetism V. Gravity

August 8, 2008

This is the second edition of *drum rolls* Pop Quizz! A quizz in which the answers are not obvious and if it is obvious, and you get it wrong, you are rebuked at!!!

Occasionally, I will occasionally ask a question, and the reader will answer them! For every wrong answer, I will consider one of your comments a spam. Ha! See how you like that suckers! (I am kidding, of course) Sometimes, a wrong answer won’t invite rage, some really obvious one will, and you will be called an idiot if you can’t answer the obvious one. In fact, I may have to make an extra page on my blog for the lists of idiots. 🙂 So, let the question begin!!!

The question is  0. which one of those forces are stronger (if you get this one wrong, I will be all over you 😉 ), and 4. by how much!!? Extra credit 3. if you know what the equations for force is depending on the distance. 

Hint and answer by entering the page.
