Homework Equations
Pythagorean theorem, E=kq/r^2
The Attempt at a Solution
r= square root of .8^2 +.4^2 =.89
E= 8.99x10^9 X 4X10^6 divided by (.89^2)
E=8.99x10^9 X 2X 10^6 divided by (.89^2)
should I not be dividing by .89^2 but rather the radius of an electron?
I am not sure if A and B should be negative or positive or if I am doing this right..?
