## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

F=(kq1q2)/d^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

So it should be fairly easy to use "parts" to come up with each answer

Part a

Because particle 1 has no pull in the x direction I should be able to ignore it when finding the x component of the force

Fx=k*q3*q4/a^2+k*q3*q2/(a*sqrt2)^2*cos45

=7.46E-4 N

This was incorrect and I did not attempt part 2 as I figured my mistake would carry over to that similar calculation
