1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d86/warnexus/physicsfigure.jpg 2. Relevant equations electric force = (field strength)(elementary charge) electric force = k(e^2)/(distance^2) 3. The attempt at a solution the goal of the problem is to find the x and y component of an electric field. given distance 2.5*10^-2 m elementary charge 1.6*10^-6 C given k 9*10^9 N*m^2/C^2 we can find electric force (9*10^9)(1.6*10^-19)^2/(2.5*10^-2)^2 = 3.7 *10^-25 N now we can find field strength. field strength = electric force/(elementary charge) field strength = (3.7*10^-25 N)/(1.6*10^-6 C) the field strength came out to 2.3*10^-19 N/C but i have no idea how to go about finding the components given the field strength. i need guidance i'm pretty sure my works looks correct.
