Forces in a 3 charg system

  1. Sep 8, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Two point charges are located on the x axis: one charge, q1 = -10.5 nC, is located at -1.735 m ; the second charge, q2 = 40.0 nC, is at the origin (x=0)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Can somoene show me how to do this? I am stumped

    You left off the actual question. However, I can almost guarantee that you will need to use F= (q1)(q2)/r^2

    Where is the third charge? What is the problem?
