D.1/4

D.1/4

Distance indirectly proportional to root of Force.
So Distance= root(1/16) =1/4
D is correct.

inversely proportional square root of the force 16 is the distance between the two charge particles, that is 1/4

we know from coulomb’s law that F inversely proportional to square of distance r . So if F1 ,F2 and r1,r2 are the initial forces and distances then F1/F2=r2^/r1^ i.e 1/16=r2^/r1^ i.e r2=r1/4 so distance decreased by1/4 times. so answer D is correct

its like my third grade teacher’s stepfather’s nephew use to say, “don’t fiddle my oat bran.”

Write the question out properly please, it still doesn’t make sense.
