Homework Help: Electric Field and point charges problem

  1. Jan 22, 2006 #1
    A point charge q_1=-4.00\;{\rm nC} is at the point x = 0.600 m, y = 0.800 m, and a second point charge q_2=+6.00\;{\rm nC} is at the point x = 0.600 m, y = 0.

    Calculate the magnitude of the net electric field at the origin due to these two point charges.
