1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform electric field exists everywhere in the x, y plane. This electric field has a magnitude of 3600 N/C and is directed in the positive x direction. A point charge -9.8 × 10-9 C is placed at the origin. Find the magnitude of the net electric field at y = +0.20 m. 2. Relevant equations E=kq/r^2 3. The attempt at a solution I thought at first because the the y-direction is perpendicular to the electric field direction that the field strength would be 0, but this is wrong. I then thought the field would be the same at that point i.e. be 3600N/C, but that was wrong too. So how do I correctly solve this problem?
