Two small conducting balls, each with mass m= kg are tied to the ends of non-conducting strings. The strings each have a length of L= m. The balls are then each given the same amount of charge, Q= C. Due to Coulomb's law, the balls repel each other, and the system will sit with the balls separated as shown here:

By what distance will the balls be separated (find x)?
