1. The problem
Two negative and two positive point charges (magnitude Q = 3.16mC ) are placed on opposite corners of a square (side lengths a = 0.105m )
#1. Determine the magnitude of the force on each charge.
I GOT..... F1,F2,F3,F4 =7.44x10^6N (which was marked correct)
I am having trouble with this question.....
#2. Determine the direction of the force on each charge.
I know (Fy/Fx)=1
so tan1(1)=45
Its asking for θ1,θ2,θ3,θ4 and I have no idea how to get the angles :(
