--A line of positive charge is formed into a semicircle of radius R=60.0 cm. The charge per unit length along the semicircle is described by the expression [lamb]= [lamb]naught cos [the] . The total charge on the semicircle is 12.0 microcoulombs. Calculate the total force on a charge 3.00 microcoulombs at the center of curvature.--

The figure shows the semicircle with is center at the origin going from 0 to pi. [the] is the angle formed by dragging R clockwise from the positive y axis.

the answer in the book is -0.707N

**j**and I got -0.526N. Can someone please help me figure out how to properly go about solving this problem?
