(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Magnitude of initial acceleration

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A particle of mass 67 g and charge 25 microC is released from rest when it is 89 cm from a second particle of charge -10 microC. Determine the magnitude of the initial acceleration of the 67 g particle. Answer in units of (m/s)^2.

I understand how to find magnitude of vectors but I don't even know where to start with this one..

Can someone please give me a detailed push in the right direction? Thank you so much
