electric force = (field strength)(elementary charge)
electric force = k(e^2)/(distance^2)
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.
