## Homework Statement

A proton is at the origin and an electron is at the point x = 0.36 nm , y = 0.34 nm.

Find the x- and y-components of the electric force on the proton.

## Homework Equations

E = kQ/r

^{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I found that E = 9.38 * 10

^{-28}, but my problem is that I do not know how to determine the x and y components. I did a problem earlier that followed this way and got help on it, but the y was 0 so all magnitude was in the x component. I simply do not understand the strategy to find the two components using the given coordinate points.
