Homework Statement
Four point charges are placed at the four corners of a square. Each side of the square has a length L.
Find the magnitude of the electric force on q2 due to all three charges q1 , q2 , q3
and q4. Given L=1 and q= 1.38 μC. Answer in N...
distance is 1.12μm , so
d=(1.12E-9) - (1.2E-9 * .004) =1.11552E-9
& i totally butchered the rest. I'm not sure what its supposed to look like
Fe=8.99E+9 * ????? / 1.11552E-9
Then
Fs=kx
Fs*x =K
