1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data point A is between two charges, one to the left (+2 microcoul) and one to the right (-2 microcoul). point A is midway between the two charges. the two charges are 5cm apart. what is the electric field in the plane of the page (diagram) at a point 5cm left from point A. give in terms of x and y components of the electric field assume positive x is directed to the right, and positive y is directed upward of point A 2. Relevant equations electric field = kq/r^2 where k is 9*10^9, q is charge, r is distance 3. The attempt at a solution E1 = kq_l/r_1^2 = (9*10^9)(+2*10^-6) / (0.025^2) = +2.88*10^7 n/c E2 = kq_r/r_2^2 = (9*10^9)(-2*10^-6) / (0.075^2) = -3.2*10^6 n/c Enet = E1 + E2 = (+2.88*10^7) + (-3.2*10^6) = +2.56*10^7 n/c so Enet is directed to the right, purely x direction, no y direction (Ex, Ey) = (+2.56*10^7, 0) n/c my solution is incorrect. what did i do wrong? did i interpret the question correctly (plane part), if so could you explain what the "plane" part means?
