Two large conducting spheres carrying charges Q1 and Q2 are brought close to each other. Is the magnitude of the electrostatic force between them exactly given by Q1 Q2/4π∈0r 2, where r is the distance between their centres?
The force between two conducting spheres is not exactly given by the expression, Q1 Q2/4π∈0r 2, because there is a non-uniform charge distribution on the spheres.
