1. A positive charge of 2.6 µC is pulled on by two negative charges. One, -2.0 µC, is 0.050 m to the north and the other, -4.0 µC, is 0.025 m to the south. What total force is exerted on the positive charge?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

north east south west?

2. I'm using the equation Kq1q2/d^2 k=9E9 q=charge r=distance

3. anyone that could help this would be great i tried calculating the force of 1 acting on 3 then 2 acting on 3 and 2 acting on 1 and added them but still no luck anyone that could show how to complete this 3 charge coulomb force would greatly be appreciated
