Three charged particles are located at the corners of an equilateral triangle. Calculate the total electric force on the 7.00µC charge.
The three charges are: 7.00µC, 2.00µC, and 4.00µC and they are all 0.500 meters apart. Here's a graphic of the layout: http://gyazo.com/34786cc28a37e5b918db63a7e9d6f8c2.png I know I have to use Coulomb's law but am having trouble coming up with the answer.
