Examine the charge distribution shown.
a) Find the net force on charge 1
b) What is the net electric field acting on charge 1 (Haven't gotten to this yet. I know I won't be given the answer, however, even a hint on building intuition would be appreciated)
I've plugged my numbers into a very similar question that I've been given and have followed the procedure to the best of my ability. Feel free to tell me I'm completely wrong if that's the case.
ε = kq1/r12 + kq2/r22
The Attempt at a Solution
FE 2,1 = FE 3,1 = kq1q2/r2
FE 2,1 = FE 3,1 = (9.0x10^9)(2.0x10^-5)(3.0x10^-5)/(2.0)^2
FE 2,1 = FE 3,1 = 1.35 N
Fnet = √ 1.35^2+1.35^2 = 1.9N
Ɵ=45 deg [NE]
Fnet = 1.9 N [45 deg NE]
