Find the magnitude and direction of the force on the charge Q on the figure in the attached document.
Homework Equations
F = k(q)(Q)/r^{2}rhat
The Attempt at a Solution
So I have a force in the x direction and a force in the y direction.
F_{x} = k(Q1)(Q)/(a) xhat
F_{y} = (k)(Q2)(Q)/(a) yhat
F = F_{x} + F_{y} = kQ^{2}2/(a)^{2} xhat + kQ_{1}^{2}/a^{2} yhat
Is this right? Or can more be done to solve it?
