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

Four charges are located at the corners of a square as shown below. Calculate the magnitude and direction of the net force on charge -3Q and charge 4Q.

(sorry don't have picture, but it is of a square with corners -Q, 2Q, -3Q, and 4Q clockwise).

2. Relevant equations

F= K(q1)(q2)/r^2

K= 8.99x10^9

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't understand how to start with the information I've been given, it seems like its not enough.
