How much work does it take for an external force to set up the arrangement of charged objects in the diagram on the corners of a right triangle? Assume that q = -5.2 µC, that d = 19 cm, and that the three objects are initially very far away from each other.

2. Relevant equations

W=Fed =qEd

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no clue how to start. I figured out the potential to be -1.15, I just need a nudge in the right direction
