Homework Help: Electrical Field Question

  1. Nov 27, 2006 #1
    You are observing the effects of a single point charge with a magnitude of +4.3 mu Columbs

    calculate the strength of the electric field 3cmaway from the charge in any direction..

    first i dont know why there is mu C, shouldnt it have been something like 4.3 x10^-7 C? or does mu represent something? do i need to know what that means to answer this question? someone please help

    muC = μC = micro Coulomb = 10^-6 C
