1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two identical point charges (Q=3uC) are situated 60cm apart on the y-axis equidistant from the origin. A 2uC point charge lies at 40cm on the + x-axis. What is the magnitude and direction of the net force on the 2uC charge. 2. Relevant equations F= kq(1)q(2)/r^2 3. The attempt at a solution i figured the force between the two charges on the y-axis to be .225N using the above equation, but i do not see how that value is going to have any affect on the 2uC charge.
