    Net electric force in particles in triangular formation

    NOw, another question. How do I find the direction of this force? I did inversetan(f1/f2) = 26.6 but it's wrong

    Net electric force in particles in triangular formation

    OK, nevermind. I did what I just posted and I got it right! F1 = ((8.9875e-9)(2e-9)(3e-9))/((sqroot(8))2) = 6.740625e-9 F2 = ((8.9875e-9)(2e-9)(6e-9))/((sqroot(8))2) = 1.348125e-8 sqroot ((F1)^2 + (F2)^2) = approx. 1.51e-8 YAY!

    Net electric force in particles in triangular formation

    ok, then what about the "2*nC" part? nC is nano-Coulombs though... Am I supposed to find the force between 3nC and 2nC and then the force between 2nC and 6nC? After that, do I use the Pythagorean theorem to get the resultant force?

    2 bullets fired at the same time - find kinetic energies

    Yes, I did convert it into kg when I did the problem again but the site still said I was wrong :( my answers thus far: 3574.35 (w/o changing to kg) 1.833 (no idea) 35.7435 (change to kg) 0.01 (from a bad source :( )
