We use the result of Problem 3. The force on a particle with charge that is on the axis of symmetry is
This follows from the fact that evaluated at equals evaluated at . The angular frequency of oscillations in the case where we have a spring with spring constant k is , so by analogy, the angular frequency of oscillations here is: Therefore, answer (A) is correct. |
