Calculate the magnitude of the net force on each charge

  1. Jan 11, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Four objects, each with a positive charge of 1.0 3 1025 C,
    are placed at the corners of a 45° rhombus with sides of
    length 1.0 m, as in Figure 13. Calculate the magnitude of
    the net force on each charge.


    2. Relevant equations
    F = Kq1q2/r^2


    3. The attempt at a solution

    yes, thank you I was thinking of something like this.
    All I got to do now is do find the component of x and y
