Four point-charges are fixed at the corners of a 3.0m X 4.0m rectangle. The coordinates of the corners and the values of the charges are listed below.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

q1 = 100 microC (0, 4m), q2 = 36 microC (4m, 3m), q3 = 125 microC (0, 3m) and q4 = 32 microC (0,0). Compute the net electrostatic force acting on the 100 microC charge.

ke = 8.99 x 10^{9}

I'm using Coulomb's Law.

F = [tex]\frac{ke*q1*q2}{r^2}[/tex]

Here is my attempt at a solution. Is it correct?
