## Homework Statement

In cases A and B shown there are two positive charges +Q each a distance s away from a third positive point charge +q. Is the net electric force on the +q charge in case A greater than, less than, or equal to the net electric force on the +q charge in case B? Explain.

Here is a link to the stated question (question #2) with pictures showing Case A and Case B. http://www.csu.edu/chemistryandphysics/msabella/ccli/UpdatedLabs/physics2-calc/HW%20packet.pdf [Broken]

## Homework Equations

I'm guessing using F=kqQ/r^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not really sure where to begin, obviously there are two different angles in each case, but I'm not sure how to relate that to the force on the test charge?
