(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A point particle that has a charge of 14.5 µC is located at x = 0, y = 0 and a point particle that has a charge q is located at x = 11.6 cm, y = 0. The electric force on a point particle that has a charge of 5.8 µC at x = 23.2 cm, y = 0 is -(19.7) N ihat. Determine the charge q.

2. Relevant equations

F = (k*q1*q2)/d^2

3. The attempt at a solution

-19.7 = ( 9e9 * 5.8e-6 * q ) / (.112^2)

F = ( 9e9 * 14.5e-6 * 5.8e-6 ) / (.232^2)

not sure what to do to solve this. Help fast please. Due in 1 hr
