## Homework Statement

The figure below shows a test charge q between the two positive charges. Find the force (in Newtons) on the test charge for q = -4 µC.

a)Give a positive answer if the force is to the right and a negative answer if the force is to the left.

b.)For the previous question, find the electric field (in Newtons/coulomb) at the position of test charge. Again, supply a positive value if the electric field points to the right and a negative value if it points to the left.

## Homework Equations

F=ke|q1|q2|/r^2

E=F/qo

## The Attempt at a Solution

a)F21=ke(2x10-6)(4x10-6)/(3x10-2)^2 = 80 to the left

F23=ke(4x10-6)(3x10-6)/(2x10-2)^2 = 269.7 to the right

F2 =

**190**

b)E=190/-4x10-6 =

**-4.75e7**
