(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In Fig. 22-31 the four particles are fixed in place and have charges q1 = q2 = 3e, q3 = 2e, and q4 = -10e. Distance d = 5.42 μm. What is the magnitude of the net electric field at point P due to the particles?

2. Relevant equations

E=1/(4πε0) x [ q4/2d^2-q3/d^2] j

=1/(4πε0) X [(10q/4d)^2- (2q/d^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

my work is above and i got 1.53 x 10^20 which is wrong and i have no idea where i went wrong! i followed the student solution manual!
